As people age, the precautions they take to maintain health become even more important. Good nutrition, exercise and proper medical care can make your older years some of the best years of your life. A few tips will help you to enjoy these years to their fullest.
Eat Longevity Foods
Eat only lean meats, and avoid saturated fats that can clog arteries. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as olive oil, fish and nuts support the heart and blood vessels. Avoid processed foods that are high in fat and salt. Eat whole grains, and take a pass on refined sugar. At least 2 cups of fruit and 2-1/2 cups of vegetables each day will help provide the vitamins and antioxidants you need to stay well nourished.
