As we age, our body composition gradually shifts in the way that the proportion of muscles decreases, while the proportion of fat increases, slowing down metabolism and making it easier to gain weight. Whatever your current body weight is, remember that it is important to maintain a positive outlook and focus on the steps whether you need to take to keep your current body weight, or lose a few pounds.
