What does the nutritionist for the elderly at Diet2Nourish recommend?
Our nutritionist for the elderly recommends, that to stay healthy, fit, and happy as grow old, you must:
Include foods in your diet that provides a lot of nutrients without adding extra calories like:
Include foods low in cholesterol and unhealthy fats:
Avoid saturated and trans fats, as much as you can. These are fats mainly from animal sources and processed foods that are usually present in store-purchased baked goods and fried foods, and almost every fast food. Also, avoid foods with empty calories. These are foods with a lot of calories and very few nutrients like candies, baked goods, chips, fries, sodas, and alcohol.
Up your fluid intake:
Fluids, especially clean and plain water are vital to keeping you hydrated. As you age, it is quite common to lose the sense of thirst. Moreover, a high intake of medicines at an older age, makes it all the more important to drink good quantities of fluid.
Always stay physically active, as much as you can:
As you age, you start losing your appetite. Exercising and staying physically active can go a long way, upping your appetite and making you feel hungrier.
Diet2Nourish play an important part in healthy aging
What we eat matters and food is the most vital component of healthy aging. A state of complete wellbeing is not just living our lives without diseases, but it is an eye for our healthy aging. The perception of our health matters a lot. We all are very different from each other, and hence for everyone, healthy aging may mean a different thing like, pain management, independence, maintaining bodily functions, the ability to move freely, feel content and fulfilled, or being joyous in life.
Malnourishment is a big challenge in seniors. Some may eat, but not eat the proper foods, while some may eat the proper foods, but their bodies aren’t absorbing the nutrients in the food. Whatever the reason may be, malnourishment is a big challenge for seniors as it improves the chances of injuries, may lead to complex medical conditions, and more. This is where your Diet2Nourish and nutritionist for seniors can be of great help.
