What are some things that cause weight gain as we age?
Overeating and lack of activity are two major reasons for weight gain. While it seems simple, a look around shows that too many of us don't make the needed adjustments to our lifestyle as we age. It seems that on average, in adulthood, we gain one pound of fat a year. If we augment this with poor lifestyle choices then we will gain more weight and have the negative consequences that go with it.
