Staying in shape after 50
More than ever, the key is on your plate. It is vital that you eat a varied and balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables and whole grains.
It is also recommended that you reduce caloric intake by reducing portion size, restricting the consumption of saturated fatty acids. You should eat omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (salmon, sardines, flax seeds, walnuts, etc.) or omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acids (olive oil, olive, avocados, rapeseed oil, etc.). Also be careful to limit your consumption of salt, sweets and processed foods.
Vitamins B6, B9 and B12 play a role in energy metabolism for a reinforced fat-burning effect.
Chromium is essential because it contributes to the normal metabolism of sugars and fats. It also helps maintain normal blood sugar levels. Take the picolinate form, which guarantees optimal assimilation.
Finally, certain plant, fruit or vegetable extracts, such as Green tea, Guarana, Vine, Pomelo or even Carrot help support metabolic functions. Here too, you should taker natural extracts titrated in EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), which trigger calorie and fat burning.
