Eating right after you turn 50, bah humbug, but worth reading

One of the things that upsets me most about the eating changes I’ve had to make since my angioplasty in 2012 is that I’m now on what I feel is an old man’s diet.

One of the things that upsets me most about the eating changes I’ve had to make since my angioplasty in 2012 is that I’m now on what I feel is an old man’s diet. No salt, no sugar, no fat, just give me some gruel and put me in a corner and watch me slowly go senile as my hair falls out for lack of protein. That’s how I feel some days when I’m watching other people eat big steaks or other restaurant dishes.

These days it's the fruit market, not the steak house, for me.

But the reality is even if you haven’t had heart problems as I have, your eating needs to change once you turn 50. How? Well the so-called science about that seems to change daily, which is why I never give medical advice here or recommend a certain list of foods for you.

I review foods for their salt, fat and sugar content, what you eat is up to you. I actually stopped working on another blog I cofounded years back because I felt my blogging partner was turning it into a medical advice and senior citizen blog, neither of which I wanted to do.

If you’re wrestling with how to eat these days, this National institute on Aging page might help, let me know what you think of it.
