How to eat nutritious food and stay healthby Akriti Martin Retirement Planning for Senior Citizens
We have all heard someone or the other remind us time to time that we are what we become. Therefore, it becomes absolutely essential to ensure that only the food that is best for us, goes into our body. Nutrition tips for senior citizens would mostly revolve around the theme of consuming a balanced proportion of different nutrition elements. At that our body’s capacity to digest food and grasp nutrition out of it diminishes to a great extent. Seniors should therefore, watch their plate carefully. Water and liquid consumption also effects the body’s capacity to digest food and flush out waste or toxins.
Any good dietician would recommend healthy eating for seniors. If seniors follow these nutrition guidelines then they can witness the positive effects on their body as well as their mind. For example, clinical research has proved that seniors who start eating a bowl of different types of berries every day register a sharp increase in their memory recall. Also recommended in moderate quantities for seniors is the consumption of dry fruits. They are nature’s power-pack nutritious and tasty snacks that are very rich in anti-oxidants, protein and other nutrients. Nuts and dry fruits are also said to satiated not only the body’s but also the brain’s energy needs. Their consumption makes us feeling full for longer time, thereby cutting down the need to have food more frequently.
Also keep in mind that the more liquid food that you have, the better will it be for your body to digest and process it. Drinking more water can really make you feel very light and full for longer time. Control the quantity of food that is served on your plate, always try to eat slightly lesser than your full capacity, thereby keeping space in your stomach for water. Restrict the quantity of tea in order to avoid sugar and acidity problem. Also keep a strict control on the consumption of salt, spice and oil. Overindulgence can lead to serious health implications.
