Losing fat is never easy, and it becomes harder as you age, largely due to the loss of muscle mass and increasing levels of inactivity. Age aside, what you eat affects your metabolism too. Metabolism is the process of your body breaking down the food you eat for energy.
For example, having sugary drinks slows down metabolism. When your body becomes overloaded with sugar, some of the sugar is unable to break down, and gets converted into fat and stored in your body. To avoid weight gain and stay in tip-top shape, follow these eating habits.
