How Soon Are Calories Absorbed After Eating? (Part 3 of 4)

Your Age

The older you get, the slower your digestive process becomes. This is because most people tend to lose their overall muscle tone as they age. This reduces the amount of calories that your body needs during the day. It is why young people are seemingly able to rip through meals without any visible effect. You can, however, counter the effect by engaging in resistance exercise to replace your lost muscle.
