Fight Fat After Forty

Use simple tricks to eliminate stress related eating and start losing weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Fight Fat After Forty is a book that gives women a three-pronged approach to break the stress-fat cycle and make you fit, healthy and trim for life. Many women over 40 go through physical changes that make losing weight and losing fat difficult. This book is written by Dr. Pamela Peeke and offers some great associations between stress and fat gain. This book offers a solution for declining metabolism, fat deposits on the waistline, decreased energy, mood swings and food cravings. When you combine all of these symptoms with what Dr. Peeke calls toxic stress you can develop self destructive eating behaviors. This is a problem that is prevalent among women between the ages of 40 and 60. Toxic stress keeps your appetite going, which leads to weight gain that settles in the lower abdomen and has been linked to heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

There are three behavior templates available through Fight Fat After Forty that women can use to tailor the program to their individual needs. Using these templates, you can stop stressed eating and start regrouping to become stress-resilient. In order to lose weight, Dr. Peeke believes you need to lift weight, and eat properly.

DIET and NUTRITION

One of the first things you will learn with Fight Fat After Forty is your own stress profile and eating pattern. This is helpful so that you know what things you will need to change to fight stress and stress related eating. There are three different templates involved with this plan. They are stress-resilient regrouping, stress-resilient nutrition and stress-resilient physical activity. In the nutrition or diet section, you will learn how to navigate the CortiZone, details about food after the age of forty and the proper way to fight fat. One of the big things to consider with this program is the Carb Clock. Below are some of the keys to eating carbs so that you can start reversing weight gain:

  • Don’t eat any carbs after 5 p.m.
  • Fruits and vegetables may be eaten before and after 5 p.m.
  • High-quality/low-stress carbs from grains should be eaten before 5 p.m. and should generally not be included for dinner except maybe once per week
  • Low-quality/high-stress carbs should be avoided or minimized at all times
EXERCISE

Exercise is an important part of Fight Fat After Forty. One thing that is emphasized is that if you want to lose weight, you’ve got to lift weights.

Muscle burns more calories than fat, and by increasing your muscle tone, you can actually reshape your body and lose weight more effectively. The exercise plans are customized to meet your individual needs and help reduce stress. Below is a sample exercise plan:

  • 45 minutes aerobic exercise three days per week
  • 25 minutes aerobic exercise two days per week along with full strength training routine
  • One day of rest each week
