Another success! Congratulations to 63 year old Joan.
In 98 days she has lost 18.4 pounds, 4.1% body fat and 14.5 inches. Only 10 more pounds to go to reach her goal weight of 130 pounds.
I train and give her nutrition advice via my online services with one in-person meeting a month. Joan exercises daily and enjoys jogging, swimming, biking, hiking and cycling. She does my weight training program and cardio in the gym twice a week. She averages a 550 daily caloric expenditure.
She logs her food on My Fitness Pal every day so we can make improvements to her diet. This week she is on a mission to increase the fiber in her diet. Yesterday for instance she had Flax Plus cereal, nonfat milk, banana, blueberries and pineapple. A Jamba Juice smoothie, fish, bulgur, yellow squash, red potatoes, chicken, carrots and a small piece of dark chocolate. Lots of fiber! And all for under 1200 calories.
Although Joan is 63, her “real-age” is probably 25. She moves like she is a healthy 25 year old. I predict her life will be long, healthy and active. (An analysis of 33 studies shows that higher fitness levels are tied to lower risk of dying from all causes of death.
