What is the "Unnecessary Aging" process?
Have you ever wondered why you could eat so much more when you were younger and never gain an ounce of weight?
Or wonder why now, no matter how much you diet or try to exercise, that you seem to be fighting a losing battle?
Utopia refers to this issue as the unnecessary aging process. Each year the average adult loses ½ pound of
functional muscle and also gains 1 pound of excess fat. It doesn’t seem like a big deal but it really starts
to add up.
As we lose functional muscle our metabolism (how many calories we burn up) also begins to drop.
Additionally, as we lose our functional muscle we also lose our strength and energy and it becomes a struggle
to remain physically active.
Worse yet, our resting metabolism, called our Resting Metabolic Rate ("RMR") also drops more each year.
Because we all spend much of our day at rest, this is really bad news.
- One pound of muscle: Burns an estimated 35-50 calories per day
- One pound of fat: Burns ~2 calories per day
Additionally, these muscle supporting calories at rest come almost exclusively from our fat stores.
Other undesirable consequences of the "Unnecessary" Aging process
As we continue to lose functional muscle and gain unwanted, excess body fat our physical appearance also begins to
change for the worst. We lose our good posture and that bounce in our step. Tone turns to flab and smooth and
curvy turns to lumpy and unshapely.
By age 50, the average female has lost 15 pounds of youthful, shapely, functional muscle and added 45 pounds of
unwanted, excess fat. Almost 50% of her entire body is now fat.
Now before you get too discouraged, Utopia has the solution to actually reverse this natural decline and can offer
you dramatic results!
