Good News For Healthy Aging

September 18th, 2017

The good news is that you can eat everything! The consensus among most dieticians and nutritionists is that all kinds of food should be eaten in order to maintain a healthy body. The only drawback is not to eat too much, except for fruits and vegetables, and not to eat too much of any one food.

Advice from a dietician

  • Eat 3 main meals a day.
  • Have starch with every meal. Dark is better: bread, rice, pasta. Starch has the vitamin B complexes and is important for a strong nervous system.
  • Eat meat, fish, eggs, or another source of protein once a day to strengthen the organism. 15% of protein is needed each day.
  • Three portions of calcium are needed each day in order to regenerate strong bones and teeth. Low fat calcium products are found everywhere.
    Enjoy fruits and vegetables as much as you like. They are rich in vitamins and low in calories. However, fruits do have a lot of sugar, so if you are controlling sugar intake, three fruits a day are enough.
  • Get up and move at least a half hour each day. Go outdoors if possible, to oxygenate the body, to use up calories and to exercise the heart.

When watching weight, all of the above may be eaten in smaller quantities.

Do not deprive yourself of anything except when illnesses like diabetes or allergies are present.

Enjoy! They also say it is healthy to eat slowly and savor each bite.
