Is 50 The New 30?: Top Ten Tips Of How To Have a Fit Body In Your 50's!

Some of us were just born with that model thin body and some of us were not.  Fess-up, are you one of those women who would like to look like you just stepped off the runway?  I'll give you my top ten ways that you can use to keep that killer figure in your fifties! 
So maybe 50 isn't the new 30, but it could be if you make a few simple changes in your eating habits and life-style.
First, off if you think having a model perfect figure doesn't require sacrifice then you are fooling yourself.  Do you think your spouse or boy friend doesn't care how you look?  You are wrong again!  Do you care how they look?  If you are honest with yourself, you know you do.  The bottom line is having a killer body in your fifties or at any age is going to improve your health.
The way you see yourself when you look in the mirror affects your overall mental health.  If you just through yourself together in the morning and think that is good enough with the attitude that's as good as it gets, you are setting yourself up for being fat and unhappy.
If you take the time to fix yourself up like you were going to meet someone really important that day it will make a wonderful transformation come over you.  You'll start to really take pride in how you look and in turn will care about yourself and that will make you happy.

So, let's get started on the top ten tips for having that killer fit body in your fifties (50s) or at any age.

#1.  Find out your blood type and follow the latest updated information for your type.  The reason why this is so important is they have done all the research and found that the foods you eat can either make you gain weight, loose weight or stay at your ideal weight. 
My research has found that food allergies can cause weight gain in most people.  In a few others it does the opposite and causes weight loss due to the inflammatory reaction in the intestines.  A simple blood test kit can be ordered online that will tell you your blood type in about 10 minutes. (see resource section below)

#2.  Cut out all refined and processed foods.  They have high amounts of fat, sugar, salt and preservatives.

#3.  Cut out all white starchy foods.  That includes dairy because the fat from it causes weight gain in most people in the form of blotting.

#4.  Don't eat after 7 p.m.

#5.  Walk at least 30 minutes a day somewhere that makes you feel relaxed and is quiet like a park.

#6.  Eat more fiber such as organic beans, grains, vegetables and a few fruits

#7.  Drink 8 to 10 - 8 ounce glasses of water or liquid a day.  Improves kidney health and function.  Your kidney's are a major part of your immune system.  Keeping them healthy and detoxed will help you loose weight and feel better.

#8.  Get plenty of rest.  At least 6 to 8 hours a night and go to bed before 11 p.m.

#9.  Stop eating out for one month and see how much weight you loose.  Restaurant's add on the pounds because most of what they prepare is processed and comes with salt, sugar and oil added and then they add even more of the same ingredients so you'll like them.  Unless, you are eating fresh vegetables that have been steamed you are adding on the pounds.

#10.  Cook your meals at home for one month all from scratch.  Switch to organic ingredients and see if you can tell the difference in how you look, feel and think.   You'll see that fit body start to appear in the mirror before you know it!
