Re: Gaining weight after 45

ladies: Dr. Oz was saying on his show yesterday that one of the reasons we gain weight, especially in the belly, is because as we age we lose muscle mass. He also recommended taking magnesium to help keep you from getting bloated there. He gave a demo on the intestines and how they can swell up with fluid so the magnesium helps keep your bowels moving better. I already take it anyway.
