    If your mental image of an older person is someone frail and thin, it may be time for an update. For the generation currently moving through middle age and beyond, a new concern is, well, growing: obesity. Government figures show that Americans in their 60s today are about 10 pounds heavier than their counterparts of just a decade ago. And an even more worrisome bulge is coming: A typical woman in her 40s now weighs 168 pounds, versus 143 pounds in the 1960s. "People used to start midlife [at a lower weight] and then lose weight when they got into their 50s, but that doesn't happen as much anymore," says David Kessler, former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and author of The End of Overeating.


    If you're entering that danger zone now, be aware that it's not going to get any easier to lose weight, because people need fewer calories as they age. Blame slowing metabolism and the body's tendency starting in midlife to lose muscle mass—a process known as sarcopenia—and gain fat, especially around the abdomen. (Fat burns fewer calories than does muscle.) "All that conspires to make it harder for people to maintain the same body weight when they eat their usual diets," says Alice Lichtenstein, director of the cardiovascular nutrition laboratory at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University. "People have fewer discretionary calories to play with, so they need to make better food choices."

    Taco Tuesday with Civil Chat with Lee September 1st Edition

    in Politics Progressive

    Today's 1 hr. segment focuses on the uproar over the murder of Texas deputy and the connections made to Black Lives Matter. Is Black Lives Matter to blame for the murder of this law enforcement officer? Undoubtedly the disgusting chant by protesters at Minneapolis State Fair is disturbing but does THAT one protest reflect on the WHOLE movement of BLM? Your thoughts are welcomed. Scott Walker comes up with a border solution between the United States and Canada. Of all candidates how is Dr. Ben Carson doing so well in the polls? Has the Obama administration blundered in NOT being so vocal with white shooting victims as opposed to the higher profile African American victims in the public eye?
