Reasons You Feel Old & Get Fat
William Shakespeare summed up the disappointment of aging and the remembrance of youth in a poem.

Crabbed Age and Youth

Cannot live together:
Youth is full of pleasance,
Age is full of care;
Youth like summer morn,
Age like winter weather,
Youth like summer brave,
Age like winter bare:
Youth is full of sport,
Age’s breath is short,
Youth is nimble, Age is lame:
Youth is hot and bold,
Age is weak and cold,
Youth is wild, and Age is tame:—
Age, I do abhor thee,
Youth, I do adore thee;
O! my Love, my Love is young!
Age, I do defy thee—
O sweet shepherd, hie thee,
For methinks thou stay’st too long.

Once you reach "over the hill" status, you may experience some very undesirable symptoms. Weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illness, and memory loss seem inevitably linked with getting older. Why do these things happen, and what can you do to reclaim your younger health?

Health coach Katrine van Wyk joins host Melanie Cole, MS, to explain why you feel old and get fat as you age.
