Weight Loss Q & A with Dr. K: Can I Lose Weight Aged 59?


Dr K I have had a weight problem all my adult life.

I have lost and gained many times over.

I am 59 years old. Is it possible that your body will just stop losing weight no matter whether you are eating less. Like it has just gotten tired of the up and down and your efforts are for nought.



You can still most definitely lose weight at 59, no matter how many diets you have been on in the past.

(Just don’t go on ANOTHER DIET and instead focus on a more healthy, sustainable way of losing weight.)


The thing that might be making you feel a little doubtful about whether you can lose weight at 59, is that every year, losing weight becomes a little bit slower.
In your twenties you might have been able to lose 10 pounds in a week, on ANY diet.

In your early forties, it might have been 3 pounds in a week.

And in your fifties, losing 1 pound a week is good going.
So if you expect to lose weight like you did 10 or 20 years ago, you will be disappointed.

This might seem to be a problem, but it’s really not.

Because you will still be able to lose weight. It’s just going to be a bit slower.

This means you just need to be a bit more patient. And if you can do that, and keep going no matter what, then you have every right to be very optimistic about your chances of success.
