Age & Gender Specific Nutritional Needs

People need to change what and how to eat in their 50s, 60s, and beyond! They need fewer calories every decade. They move around less, they have less muscle, and the metabolic rate goes down. The challenge while eating less overall is to eat more nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, fish, low-fat dairy products, and lean cuts of meat.

As they age, their body needs the same amount of protein, vitamins, and minerals and, in some instances, even more nutrients.

Take Vitamin-B12 for example. After an age of 50, the body's ability to absorb vitamin often fades away because you stomach does not produce enogh acids to digest Vitamin B12 from the food consumed.
