Boomers - A Good Diet is Crucial after Fifty
Malnutrition is really quite a problem for older Baby Boomers. Now the causes of this are quite diverse, but the disturbing aspect of it is the number of older Boomers from all walks of society who suffer from this. So just the right sort of diet for people with more than half a century of living behind them is important, but choosing this diet might be more difficult than one thinks. Almost everyone loses some ability where smell and of course taste as well are concerned, and this loss of ability in these areas is reflected in a tendency to eat less.
What you need to do is to actually focus on how large a portion you are serving yourself and to think rationally about whether it is really enough for a person of your size and weight. Another thing that can influence diet for the better is a little exercise, and this can be beneficial out of all proportion to the amount of time you spend on it. Remember that a healthy body demands sufficient food, which results in an appetite that is wholly independent of the sense of smell and taste. So just how much time should you spend on exercising?
Well, a cumulative thirty minutes or so in a day could certainly be
considered adequate to your needs and more than enough to keep your
body (and appetite) functioning normally. Remember, it's well worth
your while to put in this extra effort, because you may not even
notice that your muscle tissue and good health is being depleted by
malnutrition until it's too late. But there is another reason to eat
well as well. As any person past middle age is well aware of, the
skin tends to become a great deal delicate with age. This is because
a layer of fat just under the skin that usually protects the skin
when one is younger is lost as one grows older. This is one reason
why the skin injures easily in an older person.
