Lose weight over the age of 50

Q. Dear Judy, I’m a 55-year-old woman who wants to lose weight, but I don’t want to take anything too strong. What do you recommend? –Julie

A. There are many excellent diet plans and products to help you reach your goals. Of all the diets out there, my clients have had the best success with high protein / low carb diets. Drink a low carb protein drink daily. Consume good fats like flaxseed oil. And take the daily multi-vitamin such as Lindberg Pink Pack.

I also recommend Lindberg Garcinia cambogia extract which comes from the fruit rind of the garcinia cambogia tree. The active ingredient in this extract is hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been shown in clinical studies to be effective in weight management.* In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 90 participants suffering from excess body weight were given either 1,555 mg of garcinia cambogia extract (60% HCA) or a placebo three times a day 30 to 60 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for eight weeks. The average weight loss was 10.8 pounds in the garcinia group, which was three times greater than the placebo group (diet and exercise alone) who lost 3.3 pounds.*

The garcinia group also reduced their food intake and curbed their appetite by 15%. Their appetite reduction correlated with a significant increase in serum serotonin levels.*

Also, consider supplementing with CLA (Conjugated Linolenic Acid) which helps reduce body fat and promote increased lean body mass.*  Lindberg CLA is made exclusively with Tonalin® brand CLA from safflower oil — the most clinically studied brand of CLA for body fat reduction. Combined with a balanced diet and exercise, CLA can help you lose body fat and keep it off.* 

If you have a tendency to overeat, a fiber product called glucomannan can help you feel full. It also lowers the glycemic index of a meal so you produce less insulin, meaning less of the calories from that meal can get converted to fat.
