Resist Refined Carbs
Holding strong against bagels and pastries has probably been a lifelong battle, but it’s more important than ever to stay away from refined carbs as you age and your metabolism slows, Bede says. “Your body will latch on to the excess sugar and destabilize your blood sugar levels, causing you to potentially binge eat foods you already will have an issue burning off—but even more so now with a slowed metabolism,” she explains. Opt for carbs from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains including whole-wheat bread and quinoa, which will ensure your blood sugar remains stable and you can keep cravings in check.
