5 Eating Habits for Rapid Weight Loss After 30

It's not easy to lose weight, and it can take more time and effort after 30. Even though studies show that your metabolism doesn't start to slow down significantly until you're 60.

You may feel like you're more likely to gain weight once you hit 30 for many reasons: your life gets busier, work gets in the way, you become less active, your eating habits may get worse, and so on.

If you have never struggled with weight before 30 and your eating and lifestyle habits are less than desirable, chances are it will catch up with you at some point.

Consume quality, whole foods.

The best place to start is by eating mostly high-quality plant foods. This includes fresh vegetables and fruits, seeds, nuts, heart-healthy oils like avocado and olive, potatoes, corn, lentils, and beans that grow outside.

2. Limit the amount of added sugar in your diet.

3. Make sure you're eating enough during the day.

4. Meal prep.

If you want to lose weight after 30, you might want to plan your meals on Sunday to make sure you're giving your body all the nutrients it needs and know how much to eat.

5. Practice mindful eating.

Sitting down and taking your time to enjoy your food can help you lose weight after 30 in a big way, even if it seems like a simple thing.
