How to Have A Good Diet As A Senior
We all love unhealthy foods there is no doubt about that, it can almost be a addiction. And when you were growing up if that was something you were to eat everyday because that’s what you parents were to feed you it can be even harder to break those old habits since it’s something that you never knew wasn’t normal and wasn’t healthy. It can be even harder to break these habits the older that you get since you have been eating this way for so long and treating your body like that for so long. Here are what foods that you should start to limit in your everyday life and you everyday diet while it might be hard you will be doing your body a favour.
The first thing that you need to make sure that you limit is your sugar limit, and I’m not talking about fruits I am talking about sugars that come from unhealthy foods such as cookies,cakes, and even cereal. There are a lot of hidden sugars in foods that you wouldn’t even think had as many sugars as they do. For example a serving a canned pasta sauce can have as much as twenty grams of sugars and that is only for one serving which is usually only a half of a cup. So the best bet you have is just limiting how many things you buy from a box or a can and making things for yourself with fresh healthy ingredients you know things that don’t contain any extra stuff unlike the whole food. Sugar is a big reason why a lot of people are over weight since companies hide them in there products and then market them as healthy options when in reality they aren’t healthy at all
The next thing that you need to make sure that you are limiting and not including in your everyday is a lot of fats like butter and cheese. While yes fats are good for us they are only good for us if they are healthy fats such as avocado, coconut oil, olive oil or salmon. These foods don’t have an saturated fats like foods like cheese, milk and other fatty foods have. These fats can be very hard on you heart and your body in general and can cause you to gain weight or just feel awful in general.
It can seem hard to change your diet at such an old age since this is how you’ve been living your whole life but it is for sure possible you just need to put your mind to it and tell yourself that this is what you need to do to be healthy.
