Nutrition for men over 40 is crucial because our metabolism slows down and we hold on to fat a lot easier than when we were younger. You need to be more mindful of what you eat and how much you take in.
How Much Should A 40 Year Old Man Eat?
Typically if you’re a 40 year old man, you want to be consuming between 1,800 calories if you’re living a sedentary lifestyle and 2,200 if you’re active.
If you’re living a sedentary lifestyle, you should make it your life goal to become more active. You will naturally want to consume more food, but make sure you consume the best and healthiest foods for your body (vegetables and fruits should make up 85% of your servings).
There are scientific reasons for this, but a practical one is how you feel. As we get older, the junk food just won’t cut it if you’re trying to maintain your energy. McDonald’s and Burger King will have you feeling a rock in the morning before trying to go to the gym.
