Best Diet Plan for Women Over 50
As we age, diet becomes more important. Your body needs good fuel, and you need to be aware of what fuel you are giving it.
There are many types of diets out there, some of them could offer a healthful way to lose weight while others might be what you would call ‘fad diets’.
But health experts agree on the basics:
- Make sure your diet provides optimum amounts of protein, complex carbs (or “good carbs”), unsaturated fats and micronutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D.
- Cut down on sugar, no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day.
- Drink lots of water.
- Eat Enough Protein.
Many older women aren't getting enough protein to maintain muscle mass. Protein is the major building block of the body, and because it isn't stored, it needs to be replenished regularly. Complete proteins are found in most animal sources such as meat, fish, and eggs while incomplete proteins are generally found in vegetables, fruit, and nuts.
So it would seem that our gorgeous 61-year-old knows her stuff! And she has the results to show for it. She’s built muscle mass through regular weight training and keeps her fitness levels up through dancing. Her nutrition is based on high protein, good carbs, good fats, good nutrients, water, and limited sugar.
She’s my hero and I hope she’s inspired you too.
Staying active and healthy regardless of our age can be an achievable goal.
Self-acceptance and a positive body image at any age and size are paramount, but exercise and healthy eating are both vitally important, too.
Life goes by too fast. The older you get, the more you may realize how important it is to make the most of each day.
So, how would you like to slow down the aging process?
While we can’t turn back time, we can turn back the years on our body—with exercise and good nutrition.
Ready to live that exhilarating life you've always dreamed of?
