As we age, scientific things do happen. Your metabolism slows down for sure. But, making lifestyle changes can counteract it. You can still be active and lively into your golden years. Many of my Yoga teachers are still practicing yoga in their 90's. How? Years of yoga and vegetarian diets! It is a proven fact and now I am living it! Start your children out young! Give them the best advantages to health that they can carry on into their adulthood!
Proper nutrition and exercise is a simple way to a long happy life!
