There may be several reasons as to why you're losing muscle mass. Losing some muscle mass is a result of aging. However, sedentary living, poor dietary habits, and chronic disease can play a major role to your loss of muscle. After speaking to your primary care physician, it is important to adopt a physical activity program that includes strength training and weight-bearing cardiorespiratory activities such as walking, jogging, or even dancing to help preserve and even grow muscle. Strive for a minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity per week.
