Benefits of Healthy Eating for Seniors
As older adults age, their bodies weaken, and development becomes slower. This is why they need to continuously adopt a healthy lifestyle, which can be done through their diet. As you consume healthy foods, the nutrition provided is important as it gives you energy and controls your weight. Some nutritional foods can help prevent certain diseases such as heart diseases or high blood pressure. If you’re wondering about dietary needs to consider for your loved one, here is a list of some of them.
- Limit food high in saturated fats. This includes cakes, pastries, pizzas, and burgers.
- Replace food high in fats with food high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These include spreads, avocados, and olive oils.
- Limit alcohol intake.
- Drink up. Our body is made up of 70% water and it is important that we constantly rehydrate ourselves. A recommended intake would be six to eight cups of water a day.
- Limit salt and sugar intake.
