In short, yes. Our metabolism naturally slows down as we age. This makes it easier for us to gain a few extra kilos of weight and much harder to loose them.
But did you know, that staying active can help to prevent this drop. If you are able to keep active and have good muscle mass then your resting metabolism is increased - which is the amount of calories that are burned when you are resting or asleep.
Activities that you could try to help prevent your metabolism slowing down include weight training, high intensity interval training, like running on the beach for periods of time and ensuring that you eat a healthy diet which includes protein.

3% of Australians suffer from excess sweating (known as hyperhidrosis). That means sweating through your clothes with no apparent reason. This can be distressing and uncomfortable and may affect the armpits, hands, feet or face.
It’s important that if you do suffer from this, you seek the opinion of a medical practitioner to confirm the diagnosis as it may sometimes be related to an underlying medical condition.
Options for treatment include, psychological therapies, over the counter rollers or sprays and prescribed medication or surgery as a last resort.
Antiwrinkle injections have also been found to be effective in treating hyperhidrosis of the under arm area. They work by stopping the sympathetic nerves from stimulating the sweat glands.
You can expect treatment to last from 6-9 months meaning you can have a comfortable summer break. 🌞
