It’s a fact of life that the older we get, the more difficult it is to lose weight. Most women seem to notice that their metabolism slows down after they turn 35, and it just seems to go downhill from there!

If the dieting plan and exercise routines that once used to keep you satisfied no longer work, and you’re suddenly wondering where all the extra love handles came from, consider giving this eating plan a try! It’s very strict and may seem difficult or impossible at first, but the results will be worth it in the end.

The meals are simple, inexpensive, and different every day, so hopefully you’ll give this a try! Make sure you drink plenty of water.
