    Okay fellas;

    I have noticed a certain level of "fat that comes with age and not so strict diet".
    My initial reaction was to simply run more and do more cardio. I am not looking for a short cut, just some advice to give what I am doing more structure.

    Any Ideas?

    MC

    Paleo diet will fix that. The interesting thing is it's a full fat diet. Dietary fat and middle age fat aren't related as people believe they are.

    Avoid wheat.
    Google: "Amylopectin A"; "Lectin"; "Gliadin"; and "anit-gliadin antibodies"

    Or, watch this...

    I've been doing that since I got braces. Easy 5lbs down over the past month or so.

    Yes, my advice for you is to see a dietician, because we have to do changes in our diet during the aging process. Just remember our metabolism changes getting slow when we age.

    Firstly, I think you look great.

    It's all about the carbs. Watch your complex carb intake, eat only low glycemic index carbs- I stick to oatmeal, brown rice, and quinoa. Eat no complex carbs after lunch, only protein & veggies. Avoid simple carbs completely- no sugar, limit alcohol to an occasional drink i.e. one or two drinks/month.

    It gets tougher as we age but it's not impossible.

    This.

    I agree with everything Sungod17 said, especially the you look great part.
    Best of luck. It isn't easy.

    I'm not saying anything the guys above me haven't already. But what I find has a huge impact on the amount of flab around my midsection is ALCOHOL. When I abstain completely for a couple of weeks, I can easily drop 5 pounds. And don't get me wrong, I don't drink THAT much, maybe 1 or 2 every other day and 3 on a Saturday night. But I find that staying away from it makes a big difference for me. Also, another change I notice is that sugar and simple carbs blow me up in a way they didn't seem to in the past.

    As we age, our testosterone levels decrease and we lose some muscle mass. Stress, genetics, diet all play into it but there is a natural decrease

    A great book by Nelson Vergel is "Testosterone, a Man's Guide"
    Read it and take a copy to your doc.

    But on the other hand, weight training helps to slow the "natural" decline in a man's testosterone. I don't quite believe in "fat that comes with age". And at my age, I think I'd know.
