It’s no secret that as we age, it becomes harder to keep the weight off. But why does this happen?
This Is Why People Gain Weight As They Get Older
New research from Sweden suggests that “lipid turnover” – the rate at which lipid (or fatty acids) in the fat cells is removed and stored – decreases during ageing. This makes it easier to gain weight, even if the amount we eat and exercise stays the same.
For the study, published in the journal Nature Medicine, scientists analysed the fat cells in 54 men and women over an average period of 13 years.
In that time, all subjects – regardless of whether they gained or lost weight – showed decreases in lipid turnover in their fat tissue.Related...

Only those who had a low lipid turnover rate before surgery managed to increase their lipid turnover and maintain their weight loss.
“The results indicate for the first time that processes in our fat tissue regulate changes in body weight during ageing in a way that is independent of other factors,” said Peter Arner, professor at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, and one of the study’s main authors. “This could open up new ways to treat obesity.”
“Obesity and obesity-related diseases have become a global problem,” added Kirsty Spalding, senior researcher at Karolinska Institutet and study co-author.
“Understanding lipid dynamics and what regulates the size of the fat mass in humans has never been more relevant.”Related... How Do Weight Loss Injections Like SkinnyJab Work – And Are They Safe?
