It’s probably a well-known fact that aging makes more calories linger in the body, and we need to make an extra effort to keep in shape! It is not a myth: Metabolic processes slow down with age, thus preventing us from enjoying certain delicacies and midnight snacks.
Madelyn Fernstrom, Ph.D., director of the Weight Management Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and an associate director of the UPMC Nutrition Center in Pittsburgh, tells WebMD that starting at the age of 40, people need to eat 100 calories less a day. As we age, the muscle mass of our body decreases, and that means that high-caloric food transforms into fat instead of being burned as energy.
