healthy diet over 50 the key to aging

    I totally agree, Beth. I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer 11 years ago, and after a gruelling year of surgery and chemo, I researched diet and nutrition and completely overhauled my lifestyle. I eat healthily, enjoy a glass of wine and dark chocolate, and exercise every day, walking plus strength training at home. I’m the fittest I’ve ever been at 66! Good food and a positive attitude keep me a happy bunny!

    Excellent Covid post, Beth. At the beginning of lockdowns here in Canada, my friends threw themselves into baking – and then they ate it. I don’t keep sweets in the house as I find, out of sight works for me. When I bake for special occasions, I eat it for breakfast and have the day to work it off. I love my daily wine with supper and fresh bread from my bread maker. Making peace with ourselves requires compromise, I think.

    Exercise is so very key. My diabetic friends (type 2), bundle up and do a daily 30 min. walk regardless of weather. I really noticed a change in my arms, torso, and legs because of a couple of injuries and then Covid, keeping me from doing pool laps. I decided to do my own 15 min weightlifting morning and night, and at 72, in two months, my arms are back in pool shape.

    Eating basic food, in proper proportions and doing an exercise routine you enjoy will help go the distance. No one sticks with anything that constantly makes them feel punished. Good health should always be honoured.

    I just finished a mindfulness class last week, and one of the techniques was mindful eating. I had an epiphany about so many times we just eat quickly without paying attention, just because we ‘need’ to. I realized and decided that if I’m going to put something in my body, I’m only putting in what I like, and I’m going to take the time to enjoy it and pay attention to whether I’m even hungry before I start eating, and to my body cues about fullness as I continue eating too.
