As you age, your metabolism will naturally slow but this is a slow process influenced by the lifestyle you lead.

Lack of exercise can lead to muscle loss which, in turn, will reduce the number of calories you naturally burn each day.

This, coupled with hormonal changes, slows your metabolic rate and encourages the saying You wont be able to eat like that in your 30s.

However, a good diet and exercise plan can help to maintain your muscle mass and can reverse some effects of ageing, such as sarcopenia (muscle wastage).

It is possible, and now becoming more common, to be in better shape in your 40s, 50s and even 60s than you were in your 20s.

A healthy balanced diet involves consuming around 40% carbohydrates, 35% protein and 25% fat.

This will help to ensure your body has the right nutrients to provide you the energy you need each day, as well as aiding protein synthesis; which makes muscles heal and grow.

A good starting point is to check out our free 1-day meal plan. This guide is a great introduction to the right diet and exercise plan.

You also need to understand your calorific needs for the day.

According to many health organisations, the average male adult needs 2,500 calories per day. However, this does not mean that you do!

There are three things to consider that will influence the number of calories you need daily. These are:

If you have an active job you will burn more calories than if you are sat down all day. This is an easy concept to grasp and explains why two men can be very different weights even if they eat the same food.

Your personal calorie requirement will be a result of how active you already are.

If you are intending to lose weight then it is recommended that you consume 300 500 less calories than your recommended amount. This needs to be factored into any diet and exercise plan.

Alternatively your diet and exercise plan should allow you additional calories to help build muscle; if that is your goal.

If you would like to increase muscle and lose weight it is advisable to tackle your weight loss first then build your muscles after.

While your diet is important to aid you with losing weight or simply maintaining your current weight, the exercise part of your diet and exercise plan should not be overlooked.

The best results will stem from a change in diet and increased exercise; after all, you cant out exercise a bad diet.

Exercise burns calories and improves the flow of blood and nutrients to your entire body.

This improves your overall health and helps to stave off many age-related diseases.

It is important to note that regular exercise is also essential to maintaining muscle and bone strength. This will allow you to remain mobile as you age.

The secret to the right diet and exercise plan is to choose an exercise you enjoy. This will allow you to create a habit and benefit from results in the long term.

A successful diet and exercise plan is only possible if you develop a habit and stick to it. The best plans are the ones that you will do every day, no matter what.

You need to know what your main goal is before you commit to a diet and exercise plan.

If you are looking to develop a body like a weightlifter then this requires a very different set of exercises to someone who wants to complete a marathon.

Knowing what your goal is will ensure you pick an exercise routine that actually works and helps you to achieve said goal.

Whatever your goals, you will find that a high intensity workout, such as our 24-min workout, will assist you in achieving them.

High-intensity workouts will stimulate muscle growth and increase your metabolism for hours after youve finished them.

This makes them an important part of every diet and exercise plan.

However, it is okay to tweak this and change it as you discover what really works for you.
