Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and well-being. As you grow older, if you continue eating the same types and amounts of food but do not become more active, you will probably gain weight. That’s because your metabolism (how your body gets energy from food) can slow with age, and your body composition (amount of fat and muscle) may be different from when you were younger.

👉The energy your body gets from the nutrients in the food you eat is measured as calories. As a rule of thumb, the more calories you eat, the more active you have to be to maintain your weight. Likewise, the reverse is also true—the more active you are, the more calories you need. As you age, your body might need less food for energy, but it still needs the same amount of nutrients.

How Can I Keep a Healthy Weight? I will help you to make smart food choices for healthy aging. Many things can affect your weight, including genetics, age, gender, lifestyle, family habits and culture, sleep, and even where you live and work. Some of these factors can make it hard to lose weight or keep weight off.

But being active and choosing healthy foods has health benefits for everyone—no matter your age or weight.

It’s important to choose nutrient-dense foods and be active at least 150 minutes per week. As a rule of thumb:

To keep your weight the same, you need to burn the same number of calories as you eat and drink.

  • To lose weight, burn more calories than you eat and drink.

  • To gain weight, burn fewer calories than you eat and drink.
