Diet Matters

Lift Weights


"Strength training is vital as you age. My passion has always been strength training, and never more so than today," she writes for Sheer Luxe.

"Once we hit 30, our bone density and muscle mass decrease. Strength training plays a significant role in preventing this loss and we can actually build new bone by using weights. This can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, which women are so susceptible to, especially post-menopause. Moreover, strength training gives you such a feeling of power in everyday life – it'll help with sleep, anxiety, co-ordination and will also help you manage your weight." She added that it "won't make you bulky," despite popular misconception.

"It's a myth that using weights will make you bulky – unless you are using very heavy weights and dramatically changing your diet, this simply isn't true. It's also important to remember that you can't spot reduce fat. Your body works as a whole and, whilst you can tone a particular area, working the full body consistently along with a sensible diet will make the difference."

According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills

Do Cardio


"In an ideal world, combine weights with cardio," Caroline adds. Why is it important to do both? "While you may burn more calories in a cardio workout, strength training builds muscle. The two aren't mutually exclusive and, for a leaner, fitter body, you should combine the two. Cardio is essential for heart health and for building stamina and endurance. At the same time, when we lift weights, we build muscle, boost metabolism and reduce our risk of injury," she says.
