Over 40 Nutrition

One doesn’t realize the importance of getting a well rounded daily diet until if one’s health is robust. However, the importance of nutrition when one gets past the age of 40 becomes crystal clear. A woman that has maintained a well balanced diet complete with fruit and vegetables as well as meat will arrive at 40 with a firmer skin than one who has given in to fast foods filled with addictive processed chemicals. It is important for a woman or a man to place nutrition uppermost in their daily planning if they want to avoid the excess wrinkles, obesity or even an emaciated look past 40.

Learning to eat properly should become a habit at a very early age. Adjusting the digestive system to use the enzymes and other roughage of non processed foods will encourage good nutrition when one reaches post adolescent years filled with peer pressures and with group dining. If the challenges of keeping a good diet overcome one’s wisest nature, falling victim to diets that play havoc with one’s digestive system can make living a normal life difficult as diet’s tend to overwhelm our daily activities.

Consider whether you would want to arrive at 40 looking youthful with an unwrinkled skin and a body weight that has remained stable for years because you followed good nutritional meal planning, or would you want to arrive at 40 looking sallow with wrinkled skin and having had to fight with diets to keep your weight in check with community preferences?

There are other reasons besides looking good that should encourage your good nutrition. Staying healthy means having a digestive system that has been maintained to use foods for energy as intended by our biological system. Substituting chemical additives with sugar laden treats can lead to serious illnesses that might develop into permanent physical disorders such as gastritis or even ulcers.

Foods are essential to living. Knowing which foods will keep us healthy and which foods will not is part of being an adult in facing our daily living requirements. So inform yourself, and indulge into the world of nutrition
