Diet Plan for 30 Year old Women

Last Updated on

You’ve hit the big 3-0 recently or maybe a few years ago. You’ll notice that your body has slowed down a little and weight seems to be more stubborn than before. Let’s help tackle your post 30 weight problems with a diet plan that works!

Once you hit 30, so many changes begin to show up in your body. You might notice a straw coarse chin hair (ugh!) or that the white of your eyes have lost that sparkle! You might begin to notice new spots on your face and your heels may need more moisturizing than before. But most women tend to increase their worry lines because of one unavoidable issue- stubborn weight gain!

Post 30, your body’s metabolism slows down. This means that all the extra weight at those weddings, festivals and cheat days stay on your thighs, tummy and hips a little longer than it used to in your twenties! If not taken care of, this weight can keep piling on, leading to obesity. If you feel like you are heading in that direction, this 14 day meal plan can help get you into the habit of eating healthy while boosting your metabolism and also detoxifying your body.
