Weight Gain and the Age Factor: Turning Back the Clock

Interview with Dr. Mimi Secor:

Dr. Mimi Secor has been a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner, specializing in Women’s Health, for over 40 years. She is a popular National Speaker and Consultant, educating advanced practice clinicians and consumers around the country and the world. Dr. Mimi is also a fitness and health advocate, and is passionate about helping women to lose weight and feel great.

If we continue to eat the same amount we will gradually gain weight. This also explains why, as we age, it is more challenging to lose weight. We lose weight more slowly and sometimes we are unable to lose weight.
