When you are in your 20’s it’s easy to stay in shape but as you age it’s not so much you metabolism slows down, its the fact that you don’t have as much free time to devote to staying in shape as life takes over. When you get married and have a family the days of spending three hours a days playing basketball or over. What you are left with is a less active lifestyle and thus your body slows down.
