    Middle-age metabolism slowdown: Up your physical activity to avoid a flabby middle, which leads to inflammation (the root of many chronic conditions)

    Wednesday, October 11, 2017 by: Michelle Simmons

    Researchers from the University of Jyväskylä in Finland are studying the relationship between a person’s daily step count and changes in their body mass index (BMI). It was observed that those who had increased their daily step count by more than 2,000 steps had the same BMI level even after several years. Conversely, those who retained or decreased their daily step count had an increase in their BMI levels. Furthermore, the study concluded that men are more likely to have a sedentary lifestyle than women. The results found that men slowed down in exercising or doing physical activities as they aged.

    The researchers studied the data of 1,033 Finnish adults ages 34 to 49. The data came from the Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study in 2007 and 2011.

    The subjects were divided into three groups according to their total number of steps — increase-ers, decrease-ers, and maintainers. The BMI of both male and female subjects grew over the follow-up time. About half of the subjects retained the same number of their daily steps, while roughly one-fourth increased their step count daily by more than 1,000 steps. Results showed that about 25 percent of the study subjects increased their daily step count by more than 2,000 steps, while about 19 percent decreased their daily step count throughout the four years of study.

    In conclusion, the data indicated that increasing steps in middle age is linked with maintaining BMI at the same level. Researchers pointed out that physical activity should be raised as a person ages to maintain BMI at the same level. On the other hand, retaining the same level of physical activity increases BMI.

    Battling middle-age metabolism

    With regards to BMI levels, a Daily Mail article suggests a discovery by scientists that can help middle-aged people lose weight, or at least reduce the fat around the tummy area. The new research reveals that fat around the midsection of middle-aged people could be caused by inflammation. Researchers suggest that reducing this inflammation could increase metabolism and help middle-aged people lose fat around their belly area. (Related: Belly fat begone!

    The study results indicate that metabolism slows down as people age, so losing weight is not as easy as how it was when one was younger. This consequently leads to the build-up of fat around the waistline. The researchers concentrated on macrophages, which are specialized cells engaged in destroying infections. They discovered a new variety of this cell that rests on the nerves in the tummy fat. When these specific types of macrophages become inflamed, they hinder the signals that are supposed to be sent to fat cells for them to burn the stored energy in the body.

    This new study can contribute to the progress of discovering treatments to assist older adults avoiding a flabby middle. In the United States, about 36.5 percent of adults are obese. Obesity causes heart disease, stroke, type-2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

    “The purpose of our research is to achieve a greater understanding of immune cell interactions with nerves and fat cells to potentially reduce belly fat, enhance metabolism, and improve performance in the elderly,” says study author Christina Camell.

    The study was accomplished by the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, University of Bonn in Germany, and Yale University and was financed by the National Institutes of Health, the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research and the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.

    Easier said than done I would say... yes, makes sense but is a bit of a catch-22 as one gets older.

    Reducing inflammation is key... physical activity a +, but some folks may need additional/alternative ways to do this... some foods & supplements are said to help with this as well. I try to do as much as I can in this regard... still, not so easy... metabolisms vary among people... easier for some than others.

    Reducing inflammation cannot be said enough.

    Here are some great supplements that help a great deal:

    Turmeric
    Ginger Root
    Cinnamon (Make sure it is Ceylon Cinnamon, because Cassia is bad for the liver.)
    Garlic
    Cayenne
    Black Pepper
    Cloves


    Horseradish will help speed up your metabolism.

    Increases your Metabolism
    Horseradish is packed with proteins, vitamins, and minerals, but lacks fat and calories. This means that the protein can directly be metabolized into useful energy, new tissue, muscle matter, or cellular material that can be used to repair and bolster defenses against toxins and illness. Your energy levels can increase and the pungent sinigrin in horseradish can make you feel more aware and focused, raising your concentration level.

    Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar w/MOTHER will also help boost your metabolism.

    Increases Metabolism & Speeds Up Weight Loss

    Looking to speed up your metabolism and lose weight fast? Apple cider vinegar can increase your metabolism and support weight loss because it contains an organic acid that is created when you convert apple juice to apple cider vinegar. Called acetic acid, it’s been shown to improve your metabolism.

    Most of the time when we hear acid, we think, “Oh well, acid isn’t good.” In this case, acid is good. Very similar to how lemon juice has citric acid that helps deliver the detoxifying benefits of lemon water, here acetic acid has an alkaline effect on your body — and this has been proven medically to support weight loss.
    Coconut oil will speed up metabolism too.

    Researchers found the men who ate coconut oil lost more body fat, which they attributed to a greater increase in energy expenditure and fat burning. Coconut oil actually sped up their metabolism, curbing their appetite and allowing them to lose more belly fat, as compared with the men who were on the olive oil-rich diet.

    I do in fact do squats, stairs and, running up hill with ankle weights. I have been doing a lot of driving lately which may be flattening my tear drop shape somewhat.

    I think you could be right about that. Because I can correlate the onset of this belly fat directly with the losses I have been thru lately. Normally, I have a washboard abdomen. I will check the cortisol level thing.
