How Nutritional Needs Change as You AGE

Okay. So, it is inevitable. You will age --whether you are currently 25, 35, 50 or 60....it happens.

Do you remember being able to eat throughout the day as a teenager when activity was constant? Then, suddenly, your 20s roll around and you get your first job...sitting...a lot. At first that might be fine since metabolism still is chugging along nicely at a really good rate. Then, 30s roll around, then 40s...and beyond. 

There is no doubt that as you age, your metabolism just slows wayyyyy.... down. Eating what you normally ate even 10 years prior to your current age just doesn't quite metabolize as quickly. You start noticing that your "mid-section" happens to grow or yes, as we age, "get thicker in the middle". The bottom-line is we need to remember that and change, change, change what we can! Just because you age doesn't mean you give up! On the contrary, get revved up and energized and decide to eat differently. It's fine to enjoy a great meal from time to time, but the everyday stuff, take care of the way you eat. 

"The challenge while eating less overall is to eat more nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, fish, low-fat diary products, and lean cuts of meat."
