Come and live your sixties – it’s a great place to be.
Hankering for the younger? Scroll back in time!! Krista Scott-Dixon for Precision Nutrition provides some fundamental guidelines for living well us as we age. I’ve started at the sixties, by all means, scroll on!
We do have more information and better health than our parents’ generations from, let’s say, before the 1960’s; but we have to take advantage of that, seeking it out and making use of it. We feel great, we want to get out there and enjoy ourselves, we have been brought up with a vast amount of expectations about how good this end, the last phase, of our lives is going to be; can be.
We are open to ideas such as Tai Chi, many of us do yoga in one form or another, we meditate.
All that is good – and tends to be a bit too passive for muscle mass and bone density!! In her “Best Health Tips” section Krista leads off with nutrition and then straight into exercise. There is no getting away from it, and you can enjoy it!!! 🙂
In reviewing this article in mid-March 2016 I find Krista’s message withstands the test of time, and I am struck by the consistency of messages that informed opinion is bringing to us. Increasingly we are all getting the message to eat as fresh and unprocessed foods as possible. My later posts for Kevin Curry’s $75.00 meal plan, David Katz’s call for Whole Foods, and Dale Bredesen’s ground breaking work on dementia provide the extreme opposites of this discussion, but the message remains: whole foods, unprocessed as much as possible, reduce or stop using the refined sugars. These are the simple ones we can all start with.
Lets get ourselves on the right track. If we are there already, keep at it. Set a great example forn the people around us, especially those very impressionable young ones.
