Elderly Food and Nutrition

\r\n Energy requirement decreases with increasing age. The older we get, the greater the risk of diseases and limitations. There is a decline in perceived health and in physical capability. More than 90% of people over the age of 65 live independently. Studies show that a good diet in your later years reduces your risk of osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart diseases and certain cancers. Eating a low-salt, low-fat diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and fiber can help reduce your age-related risks of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, and other chronic diseases. Half of them suffer from one or more chronic diseases. Coronary artery disease, stroke, arthritis and Type -2 diabetes cause the greatest loss of healthy years of life. A healthy diet is very important in this regard. Balance your food intake with physical activity: the more active you are, the more food you need. Food provides the energy and nutrients you need to be healthy.
