Beware the Danger Years!

April 16, 2010

The years from age 25 to age 44 are the “danger years” for adults.

What’s dangerous about those years?  These are the years that adults become over fat.  Americans gain about 2 pounds per year in these years for about a 40 pound weight gain.  Women tend to gain the most weight — roughly 14% put on more than 30 pounds between the ages of 25 and 34.

The way to avoid this is through an active lifestyle.Weight training in a fitness center Regular activities like dancing, backpacking and hiking, running, swimming and working out can thwart the tendency to gain weight as we age.

Therefore, when it comes to physical exercise, let’s take Nike’s advice and just do it!

  1. It is scary. Most of my friends are overweight. As a matter of fact, I am the thinnest one of all my friends who are about my age. It’s so easy to gain that two pounds a year because it’s gradual. I refuse to buy clothes in a larger size. When clothes start fitting too tightly, I just work out more and cut down on the goodies!

  2. Hi Darryl,

    Oh, I had heard that statistic in some general way before, that we (gasp) gain 2 lbs per year. However, I had never heard it framed in that age range before. That is so very helpful. What about the baby boomer cohort who is 45-65 years old? My late MIL was obese and sore all the time. The simply moving and sweating and we release those acids (you know the term I mean but can’t think of because you are fitness expert, not me). I KNOW I have been neglecting my workouts when my body feels “creaky” as I put it. That creakiness is those toxins building up. The minute we are sweating, praise God, we feel better, don’t we, Darryl?

    Happy Dating and Relationships,
