I've heard the mistake adults make is continuing to eat as much as when they were young, but as you age your metabolism slows and you need less calories so the excess is just turned to fat. And once fat cells (adipose) form they are hard to get rid of. Dieting may shrink them down but they are like sponges ready to soak up excess calories again. This is why some people have to resort to liposuction to actually remove the cells.
