Actress and author Suzanne Somers has written 20 books (12 best sellers) on health, beauty and fitness. In her new book “Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat after Forty,” she discusses why balanced hormones, exercise, and a diet that includes “good fats” are key to losing weight after the age of 40.
Part of the problem has to do with leaky gut syndrome where she explains that antibiotics in meat cause a dying off of the good bacteria that protects the gut. In Ms Somers’ opinion, this can result in a situation where the bad bacteria eats small holes in the lining and cause leakage leading to a increased toxic burden in the body. Coupled with hormonal changes at 40+. our weight as we age often increases. Ms Somers’ recommends that you should eat American Grassfed Beef that has no antibiotics or hormones and has good fat.
