5 Natural Ways to Reduce Your Appetite

If you’ve noticed that losing weight is getting tougher the older you get, you’re not imagining things, and you’re not alone. Weight loss becomes more difficult once you hit the big 5-0, and it continues to get harder as you advance in years. That’s because we lose five to 10 percent of our muscle mass each decade after 50, and that translates to slower metabolism. This means that you can eat the exact same amount of food you did in your skinny 30s and still gain weight.

In a nutshell, you lose weight when you burn more calories through exercise than you consume. But what if you’ve got a voracious appetite? Are you expected to spend your golden years in a perpetual state of hunger?

Not if you play your cards right. There are plenty of ways to reduce your appetite naturally. Here are just five of them.

But, knowing this also got me thinking about all the other “hidden” ways you can burn calories, keep the fat away and stay trim.
