Why age people gain weight?
Remember your friends and relatives who have completed more than 40 years. You will probably find that most of them have lost their harmony and now have problems with being overweight. Whether you like it or not, the same thing can happen to your body, because it has many causes. The most important of them is considered a sedentary adults, most of them just do that go to work, and after it a rest, sitting comfortably on the couch. In addition, weight gain contribute to the processes occurring in our body.
All of the elderly is slowing fat metabolism
This is evidenced by results of a study conducted by researchers at the Karolinska Institute (Sweden). The essence of their work consisted in the fact that for 13 years they carefully watched the condition of the body about 100 men and women. In particular, they studied how much time they changed the accumulation rate and lipolysis. They made a very interesting conclusion - with the age of the fat metabolism in the body is markedly reduced, even if the person carefully watching their diet and exercise as actively as in his youth.
What happens to the body in old age?
Despite the fact that the fat metabolism is slowed down at all, without exception, weight gain can be avoided. Research has shown that it is sufficient to consume fewer calories, and if you do not, your body weight increases by about 20%. Thus, with the age of all of us is worth less to lean on sweets and fat - we do not want to have a fat physique and health problems?
To avoid age weight gain is possible, but it's not easy
A health problems due to excess weight can be quite a lot. For example, at the end of July 2019, we wrote that obesity can cause accelerated aging of the brain. This became known through a study involving 1289 people with an average age of 64 year. The essence of the study was that the researchers measured their weight and thickness of the cerebral cortex, and did the same after 6 years. It turned out that people who are overweight it quickly loses its thickness, which increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
To tell the truth, the extra weight at all can destroy your brain.
The study's authors believe that the results of their work can help to create new medicines for weight loss. What they will be is still unknown, but the methods are constantly being developed to prevent obesity. Take, for example, a risky experiment on introduction of electrodes into the brain, which was held by 183-pound woman, which we wrote about in one of our articles. The experiment proved that the effect on the human brain is weak discharges electricity not only helps to reduce weight, but also to get rid of depression.
