Avoid These Foods To Lose Weight After Age 50

Indulging in ice cream, pastries, and other sweet treats frequently can sabotage your weight loss efforts. 

1. Excessive Sweets

Reserve these for special occasions and opt for healthier dessert options like fruit or yogurt on regular days.

Caloric condiments like mayonnaise and creamy salad dressings can add a significant number of calories to your meals. 

2. Highly Caloric Condiments

Choose lighter options such as vinaigrettes or mustard to flavor your dishes without the excess calories.

As you age, your metabolism may slow down, and your calorie needs decrease. Be mindful of portion sizes to avoid overeating. 

3. Large Portion Sizes

Use smaller plates and listen to your body's hunger cues to prevent excess calorie intake.

Snacking on empty-calorie foods like potato chips and candy provides little nutritional value and can lead to weight gain.

4. Empty-Calorie Snacks

Keep healthier snacks readily available, like cut-up vegetables or air-popped popcorn.

Eating late at night can disrupt your sleep and lead to weight gain.

5. Late-Night Eating

Try to finish your meals at least two to three hours before bedtime to allow for proper digestion and restful sleep.
