“The results indicate for the first time that processes in our fat tissue regulate changes in body weight during aging in a way that is independent of other factors,” Arner, a professor of. Why does weight gain often come with age? Processes in our fat tissue regulate changes in body weight during ageing in a way that is independent of other factors. People in the study who consumed the same or more calories as they got older had an average 20% weight gain.

Why? According to Arner’s group, fat cells showed age-linked declines in the rate at which fats lipids were removed and stored from the cells over time. It’s a process called “lipid turnover.”.

‘Lipid turnover’ A team led by Peter Arner of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm analysed fat cells taken from 54 men and women over an average of 13 years. “The results indicate for the first time that processes in our fat tissue regulate changes in body weight during aging in a way that is independent of other factors,” Arner, a professor of medicine, said in an institute news release. As we get older, we tend to gain weight — and not just because we’re less active. Instead, we lose muscle mass as we age, which lowers our body’s resting metabolic rate, Lauren Blake, a dietitian. The precursor to an old age sedentary lifestyle is multifaceted.

The obvious one is hormone profiles change to carry less muscle. Your body doesn’t keep a metabolically active muscle cell when it can keep a non-metabolically fat cell. Lifestyles c. The other most common age-related change in body composition is muscle loss. Because muscle has a high metabolic rate, its loss is associated with a reduction in energy expenditure.

This decrease in caloric burn lends itself to weight (fat) gain. Both increased VF and decreased muscle mass are linked to a loss of insulin sensitivity.

Although FTT is intended to refer to slow weight gain after birth, a low weight for age can result from a slow weight gain either before or after birth, or from a combination of the two, so the use of an attained weight criterion preferentially selects infants with a low birthweight (Olsen et al. 2006).

During the adult life span, a gain in weight typically occurs between age 25 and 45 and is attributable to both a decrease in physical activity levels and excess caloric intake.

The largest variation in weight gain after birth occurs in the first 2 years of life, when infants born small for gestational age (SGA) show a rapid early weight gain (Holzhauer et al. 2009).

The weight gain during middle adulthood is mainly due to an increase in BMI representing the accumulation of body fat around the waist and hips (commonly referred to as the ‘‘middle-aged spread’’).

Indeed, weight gain among women is common across adulthood, particularly following each reproductive milestone such as puberty, pregnancy, and menopause as the body’s basal metabolic rate slows down.

A model such as age → body weight → blood pressure seems reasonable; processes that occur with advancing age, such as slowing metabolic rate, can lead to weight gain, and weight gain increases the demands on the cardiovascular system, which can cause an increase in blood pressure.

Early and excessive weight gain is most often because of overfeeding but can also be caused by lack of physical activity, congenital syndromes (e.g., Prader-Willi syndrome), or medical conditions such as hypothyroidism.

As one ages between the mid-20s and the mid-50s, a gradual increase in gross body weight occurs because of the accumulation and increased deposition of adipose tissue.

Most adults do not intentionally gain weight, but as we age, a decrease in physical abilities leads to a decrease in metabolic rate (amount of energy used in a given period), which in turn contributes to weight gain.

  • This is a very grounded, positive channel. You look so much healthier now than in that photo of you in your 30s! I admire and appreciate anyone who puts positive vibes out in to the world, so respect to you sir.

  • I’m turning 55 next week and do yoga at lease 4-5 days a week I’m 64kg and 1”78m I drink a cup hot lemon water almost every morning before meals. I still eat a little bit of chocolate or a cookie every other week but not wine or beer. It’s possible to do portion control and from there it’s all good ��.. live your life!! ������

  • This came at the right time. I am active and go to the gym 6 days a week, been watching what I eat and doing more cardio and I gained 2 pounds in the last 2 weeks lol. I must be doing something wrong.

  • Weight gain became my biggest nightmare. I cannot sleep and consequently I cannot do my daily tasks. I hope that you understand me english isn’t my first language so please excuse any mistakes

  • I was sticking with my diet plan for 2 years ago but now i cannot bear starvation and i noticed that i tend to binge food more than the time before the diet i’m afraid of weight gain why???????????

  • I’m in construction and still have a weight problem. I think it may be because i use KFC as my reward dinner after work. (only half joking)

  • Hi guys you are doing very good work. Nice video
    But my suggestion to get some suggestions from a concerned speciality doctor before making health related videos.
    Many things to be added.

  • Another great video. Seeing you in your 30s is very inspiring and shows us what can be achieved in middle age. I am a massive advocate of mindfulness following a breakdown over 10 years ago. For the first time I was able to be “selfish” about my need for fitness in my life. I think many family men feel guilty going to the gym. The wife may not be understanding especially when she feels stuck at home slaving in the kitchen and looking after the kids etc. etc. My advice would be for BOTH man and wife to find the time in their lives to look after their bodies and their health. Sure you will look better, but you will feel better in so many ways mentally and physically and hopefully prolong your life at the same time! Due to my breakdown I was able to say “I HAVE to go to the gym for medical reasons”. I was able to go with a clear consiounce which I dont think I was able to do before that. Ever since that moment I have been training hard. Only recently have I started to focus on the cardio side. I used to go to the gym 3 times a week for an all over body workout. My big development however is I now try and go 5 days a week when possible (which I do most of the time) with 1 hour cardio (600+ calories) plus 30 minutes ish of weights (I do the weights first). I cover 3 main excercises where I used to do 6. The massive benefit is by only doing 3 excercise groups over 30 minutes my intensity per excercise is greater than ever. I can throw myself into every excercise not worrying about having to conserve myself for the next half hour of traing. Then I sit on my bike in the gym…. whilst answering business emails, talking on my live chat, playing golf!!!! Its brilliant! By the end of the session I have burnt at least 800 calories My body has been worked hard. Heart, lungs and muscles all stretched. Its an amazing feeling and definitely helps balance the books so to speak calories wise. If anyone is self employed out there you will be amazed at how much work you CAN get done when on a bike. Thanks as always.

  • HOW CAN AN OLDER PERSON COMPETE WITH THE YOUNG?-SIMPLY CAN’T.
    IMMENSELY MORE PEOPLE THAN ONE CAN IMAGINE ARE THE VERY FIT PEOPLE WORK OUT LIKE SUPERMAN OR SUPERWOMAN.
    AS SOON AS ONE TURNS 30.
    I CAN’T IMAGINE HOW HARD WEIGHT LOSS IS AFTER HAVING CHILDREN ALSO.
    OFTEN IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT WEIGHT LOSS IS TWICE AS HARD AS YOU GET OLDER, BUT I HAVE FOUND IT TO BE FROM 9 TO 14 TIMES HARDER. PWW

  • This hormonal balance is so frustrating. I’m post menopausal and still carrying around this infuriating spare tire around the middle. Difficult to find clothes that fit right or look flattering. I’m trying to keep my portions smaller and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables. Do I have to give up sugar entirely?! Difficult when my husband keeps bringing home candy and cookies!
