Default Recommended supplements and advice for 40 years olds?

So I'm not in very good shape at all but I'm working on changing that.

One thing I have noticed is that now that I'm in my early 40s...things hurt more. Joints, muscles...stuff like that and it seems to take twice as long to heal from an injury. And really in general I feel pretty terrible all around.

So what I was wondering is if there is anything in particular I should be eating and doing at my age that would help with getting in shape again and just in general for a 40+ year old.

I'm about 6' and 230lbs and it's not all muscle for sure.

Thanks for any advice.

Well there are some great exercise programs on this site. My biggest point is to get in touch with your body and do not push it past what you know for a while. Check out the exercises on here the programs so grand. JMHO! Welcome and good lifting.

Ohnooze as far as supplements and a workout I would focus on a simple routine workout and just get your daily food regiment up to pare. We are in fact what we eat! Since you say you would like to lose a little and tone up I always say…Workout routine + Diet + Cardio + Green tea = High metabolism = Fat loss. This is a lot cheaper and probably more effective than buying a bunch of stuff and overwhelming yourself with a super complicated regiment to start with. Links below will help you tons I bet! Any questions ask and someone will answer I promise!

Here is a nutrition site for info

I'm 44 and what I did was cut all the junk food out and the pop. I dropped 17 by just doing that. Start eating better do the rule of thirds thing on your plate with your food. I was at 200 lbs and I still have fat on my body and trying to get rid of it.

Question Advice?

47 here. I'm riddled with chronic back and knee pain 24/7. Not to mention the obvious aches and pains associated with aging. Can someone or many shed some light on what they or might think one can do as a DAILY routine to help control the chronic pain as well as remain as healthy as possible? I'm not looking for an expensive or elaborate protocol. Something ALL NATURAL if possible and yet practical to the most budget dependent family. Example would be what do you do for joints, ligaments, tendons, hormonal system, etc. What are some NATURAL foods that will facilitate pain relief? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
