In an article recently published in The West Australian, Monash BDI's Department of Physiology Head, Professor Michael Cowley, said weight gain associated with middle age is not necessarily sudden, but rather an accumulation over many years. He went on to explain some of the reasons for a difference in weight gain between women and men as they age, and highlighted the ways people can reassess their health and take control of their weight. According to Professor Cowley, regular exercise, healthy eating and reduced alcohol consumption are key to improving health.
