Weight gain past the age of 30 is common for both men and women. As you get older you may become busier with work and family responsibilities, which can leave little time for exercise or making healthy meals. Metabolism slows down after age 30, meaning you burn less calories than you did in your 20s. For women, the hormone changes following pregnancy and menopause also add on the pounds.
