Nutrition Tips for the Fitness Over Fifty Crowd

Have you notice that the older we get, the more and more we move away from proper nutrition?   Yes, I’m talking to YOU, the Fitness Over Fifty people!

Think about this, when you go to the doctor and your get blood work readings back, what happens?  More often than not, the doctor prescribes some sort of medication because your cholesterol is too high or your this is too that, or you need to do more of this, etc.  You get the picture as I’m sure maybe you, or a friend of yours, has experienced this, right?

How To Reduce Belly Fat? 3 Things You Need To Know!

“How To Lose Belly Fat”

You CANNOT spot reduce fat!  In other words, if you want to lose belly fat, doing sit ups and crunches will NOT give you a small midsection!  Let’s face it folks, when you’re over 45 or 50 years old, this whole “I can do a 2 hour workout at the gym” thing just isn’t as sexy as it was when you were 25 years old.

What Is An Average Workout?

They do it that way because it’s the common sense way to approach health and fitness.  They, like me, want to see people get healthy, that’s the goal!

All that being said, getting back to the comment about what workout can an average person do. Let’s think about this for a minute. What is an average person? What does an average person do?
