Lose the Fat but KEEP your Muscle!

Muscle mass loss is no joking matter. And it happens to us all at an earlier age than I think we realize…. Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and function, is often considered an issue for the elderly, but it can begin much earlier in life. In fact, sarcopenia is a progressive process that can be characterized by approximately 3-8% reduction in lean muscle mass per decade after 30 years of age! Understand that sarcopenia is a progressive syndrome that can start when people are middle-aged, including the gradual, “domino-effect” decline in health that accompanies muscle loss. -It’s important to keep a regular exercise program. Including, lifting weights. – Make sure you get adequate amounts of protein with each meal. About the size of your fist is a great portion size to aim for.
