1. Stay Strong. You lose muscle mass as you age. Offset that by doing strength training. You can use weight machines at a gym, lighter weights you hold in your hands, or your own body weight for resistance like in yoga or Pilates.
2. Eat More Protein. Because you're at risk for losing muscle mass, make sure your diet includes about one gram of protein to every kilogram (2.2 pounds) of body weight.
3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. Drink plenty of water. Sometimes, thirst masks itself as hunger. As you get older, you may not be as quick to notice when you're thirsty, Li says.
4. Outsmart Your Metabolism. Eat more small meals and snacks, and don't go much longer than 3 hours without eating. "Because your metabolism is already slow, if you're starving yourself, it just gets slower," Li says.

10 foods you should be eating in your 60s Starts at 60

7 hours ago

1. Vitamin B12. The ‘other’ vitamin B is often overlooked but Vitamin B12 is important for making red blood cells and improving cognition. And as we get older, our stomach’s acidity decreases, especially if we take medications, and B12 isn’t as easy to absorb from the food we typically eat.
2. Spices. As our saliva count drops in our 60s, we find that food tastes more bland. The great thing is that spices can add that extra flavour and encourage saliva production, not to mention they are great for you!
3. Fibre. Constipation is common as we age as our gastrointestinal system slows down. It can be hard to get your bowels moving so the best thing you can do is eat foods rich in fibre.
4. Water. It might sound like a no-brainer but water is 100 per cent necessary every single day, yet one of the highest incidences of hospital admissions in over 60s is dehydration.
5. Potassium. To keep your risk of stroke and heart disease down, eat foods with potassium such as bananas and potatoes. The key benefit of potassium is that it lowers blood pressure and has also been found to reduce incidences of kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, as well as enhance muscle strength.
6. Calcium. We all know calcium is important for keeping strong bones and teeth but it is also essential for heart functioning and for the nervous system.
7. Leafy greens. As our eyesight decreases in our 60s, we need to keep our eyes in check as much as possible. We can do this by eating leafy greens, which contain vitamin A – essential for optimising vision and prevent macular degeneration.
8. Magnesium.
9. Avocado. Avocado is a great all-rounder food and contains vitamin E and antioxidants to help protect your vision and skin. The monounsaturated fat found in avocados has also been shown to improve the condition of hair and skin.
10. Omega 3s. Omega 3s are “essential” fatty acids, because they are necessary for health and must be included in your diet as unfortunately, our body cannot make them on its own.

How to Boost Your Longevity in Your 60s

6 hours ago

1. It's Not Too Late for Healthy Living. Don't think that just because you are in your 60s, all your cards have been dealt when it comes to health. Even the changes you make now can significantly improve your health and, in some cases, reverse some of the damage that might have been done in your younger years.
2. Keep Up Your Sex Life. Sex is an important aspect of overall health and well-being throughout your life, including in your 60s and beyond. In fact, a sexually active lifestyle has been associated with a decrease in certain medical conditions.
3. Make Time to Take Care of Your Brain. The brain likes problems. It thrives when it has something to puzzle over or figure out and it's healthiest when challenged to learn new things.
4. Take Care of Your Body. Don't let your body retire when you do. Most people tend to enjoy more discretionary time at this point in life—time that can be spent investing in a healthy lifestyle full of eating well, exercising, and more.
5. Stay Positive. How you feel about getting older can have a significant impact on how you experience life and even on how long you live, research shows. In one study of more than 70,000 people, an optimistic outlook was directly linked to an 11% to 15% increase in longevity and greater odds of living to at least 85—what the researchers termed "exceptional longevity."
6. Take Control of Your Medical Care. Not understanding your overall health status, medication, or treatment can shorten your life. Research has found that people who have low health literacy—defined in one study as "the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make basic health decisions"—have a higher mortality rate than those who are better informed about these matters.
7. Keep Getting Tested. By now you should be used to preventative care and screenings. Make sure you keep these up on the schedule recommended by your healthcare providers.
8. Learn About Hormones and Aging. Your hormones continue to change throughout your life, including as you age. Some people believe that these changes in hormones are what causes aging.
9. Use Your Time Productively. Retirement is all about time and having time to do what you want. If you have plenty of activities to fill your day up, you'll never be bored.
10. Maintain Your Social Life. Many plan financially for retirement, but they don't plan for the social aspect of this phase of life. If you are going from an active working environment where you interact with others throughout the day to being home, the shift in socialization can be quite stark.

What to Expect in Your 60s Aging, Lifestyle, Health

7 hours ago

1. Save Your Skin. The Good News: Your skin is drier, so you're less likely to suffer from unsightly breakouts. While some women do experience menopause-related skin issues, they're usually treatable with hormone-replacement therapy.
2. Bone Up for Good Health. The Good News: If you've been active all your life, your bones, joints and muscles can stay in pretty good shape during your 60s.
3. Motivate Your Metabolism. The Good News: While metabolism typically slows up to 5 percent per decade, that doesn't mean you have to gain weight in your 60s.
4. Keep Your Heart Strong. The Good News: An older heart can pump about the same volume of blood with each beat as a younger one can. The Not-So-Good News: Heart disease accounts for more than 20 percent of all deaths among men and women ages 65 to 74.
5. Preserve Your Senses. The Good News: Lifestyle plays a major role in helping to maintain your senses as you age. So stay away from loud noises, eat a well-balanced diet (which can help ward off some age-related eye disorders) and see a doctor immediately if you notice that your senses of smell or taste diminish significantly.
6. Improve Your Sex Life. The Good News: Sex in your 60s can be better than ever: You've got more time and fewer distractions. And getting older often means becoming more comfortable in your own skin.
7. Ramp Up Your Immunity. The Good News: Allergies, which result from an overreactive immune system, are probably a thing of the past, because your immune system isn't as sensitive.
8. Take Fewer "Nighttime Trips" The Good News: If you're generally healthy, your urological system likely works about as well as when you were younger. And an array of therapies can help when problems crop up.
9. Be Happy. The Good News: We get happier. A recent AARP survey showed that from your early 50s on, happiness increases over time. One explanation for the trend: years of experience.
10. Stay Sharp. The Good News: The growth of new brain cells, called neurogenesis, continues well into your 60s. And the capacity to learn new things stays strong, says Gary J. Kennedy, M.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral science in the division of geriatric psychiatry at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.

How to Get Healthy Again (Even After Age 60) • Guide

Just Now

1. Be All In. Decide that You Want to Get Healthy. As you begin to get healthy, put the power of your unconscious mind to work for you – even while you sleep.
2. Twice a Day, Picture Yourself as You Get Healthy. After you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed at night, close your eyes and allow your breath to go slow and deep.
3. Read Inspirational Materials. Turn off those dark TV crime procedurals – too much of that stuff pollutes your mind. Find some favorite motivational websites and get some books that uplift and enrich your life.
4. Make Friends with Other People Who Like to Get Healthy. People either enhance your energy or drain it. Period. Surround yourself with new friends who have amazing habits of self-care.
5. Think Holistically. Many people, when they feel motivated enough to try to change their health will generally start by trying to address their external self.
6. Heal Your Food Addictions. How passionately do you desire to get healthy? The easiest way I know to transition from good health to great health is to upgrade your daily diet.
7. Deepen Your Existing Connections. The traditional comforting and counted-upon rhythms of community life have gone by the wayside, replaced instead by piecemeal and often-unsatisfying social interactions.
8. Realize that Your Life is Already Brilliant. Gratitude is a state of mind that many of us have a difficult time generating and sustaining in our lives.
9. Exercise Daily to Experience the Sensation of Being Fully Alive. Not all exercise days are heavy-workout days. But even on light or off days – when you’re recovering from yesterday’s intense workout – you can still go for a walk.

Choosing Healthy Meals As You Get Older National

7 hours ago

1. Drink plenty of liquids. With age, you may lose some of your sense of thirst. Drink water often. Low-fat or fat-free milk or 100% juice also helps you stay hydrated.
2. Make eating a social event. Meals are more enjoyable when you eat with others. Invite a friend to join you or take part in a potluck at least twice a week.
3. Plan healthy meals. Find trusted nutrition information from ChooseMyPlate.gov and the National Institute on Aging. Get advice on what to eat, how much to eat, and which foods to choose, all based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
4. Know how much to eat. Learn to recognize how much to eat so you can control portion size. When eating out, pack part of your meal to eat later. One restaurant dish might be enough for two meals or more.
5. Vary your vegetables. Include a variety of different colored, flavored, and textured vegetables. Most vegetables are a low-calorie source of nutrients.
6. Eat for your teeth and gums. Many people find that their teeth and gums change as they age. People with dental problems sometimes find it hard to chew fruits, vegetables, or meats.
7. Use herbs and spices. Foods may seem to lose their flavor as you age. If favorite dishes taste different, it may not be the cook! Maybe your sense of smell, sense of taste, or both have changed.
8. Keep food safe. Don’t take a chance with your health. A food-related illness can be life threatening for an older person. Throw out food that might not be safe.
9. Read the Nutrition Facts label. Make the right choices when buying food. Pay attention to important nutrients to know as well as calories, fats, sodium, and the rest of the Nutrition Facts label.
10. Ask your doctor about vitamins or supplements. Food is the best way to get nutrients you need. Should you take vitamins or other pills or powders with herbs and minerals?

Best diet for over 60: the 10 changes you need to make

3 hours ago

1. What is the best way for men over 60 to exercise? First, it depends on how active you are and how active you want to be. If you are just starting out, you may want to get a medical consult first.
2. What exercise do you think we should avoid? As we age our joints cannot tolerate the stress of excessive weight. Therefore, the healthiest way to exercise in order to avoid injury is to use lower weights with more repetitions.
3. When is the best time to work out? When you can! For years I went before work. Now, I go at the end of my work day. I find that my muscles are not as stiff later in the day and I get a better work out.
4. What foods should we eat more of as we get older? In general, we should always try to eat more of the “superfoods” at every stage of life. These include: wild salmon, blueberries, broccoli, tomatoes, soy, flaxseed, oats, strawberries, cantaloupe, garlic, beans, green tea.
5. Which foods should we avoid? I don't eat junk food, highly processed food, fried or fatty foods. I also avoid all alcohol. It is a personal choice, not because I ever had a problem.
6. Any other diet advice you can share? Eat smart and remember that what you eat today will make you what you are tomorrow. Try to focus on three healthy meals a day and little-to-moderate snacking between meals.
7. What do you say to people who say they are too busy to exercise? If you want to live a long and healthy life, you need to not only make exercise a priority, but part of your life.
8. You are the author of Billion Dollar Smile. What advice would you give to older men to look more youthful? Don't smoke, it ruins your skin, lungs and will probably kill you.
9. You talk about the importance of genetics... what can we do if we have ‘bad’ genetics? Be smart and speak to a doctor. Many times diseases such as diabetes can be controlled by diet and people with fair skin and freckles are more prone to skin cancer.
10. For people who want to be ‘more like Bill’, what one piece of advice would you offer? Be tenacious! Dr Bill Dorfman is a celebrity cosmetic dentist and fitness enthusiast. @

25 Simple Tips to Make Your Diet Healthier

6 hours ago

Estimated Reading Time: 7 mins
1. Slow down. Share on Pinterest. Photography by Aya Brackett. The pace at which you eat influences how much you eat, as well as how likely you are to gain weight.
2. Choose whole grain bread instead of refined. You can easily make your diet a bit healthier by choosing whole grain bread in place of traditional refined grain bread.
3. Add Greek yogurt to your diet. Greek yogurt (or Greek-style yogurt) is thicker and creamier than regular yogurt. It has been strained to remove its excess whey, which is the watery part of milk.
4. Don’t shop without a list. There are two important strategies to employ when you go grocery shopping: Make your shopping list ahead of time and don’t go to the store hungry.
5. Eat eggs, preferably for breakfast. Eggs are incredibly healthy, especially if you eat them in the morning. They are rich in high quality protein and many essential nutrients that people often don’t get enough of, such as choline (13).
6. Increase your protein intake. Protein is often referred to as the king of nutrients, and it does seem to have some superpowers. Due to its ability to affect your hunger and satiety hormones, it’s often considered the most filling of the macronutrients (12).
7. Drink enough water. Drinking enough water is important for your health. Many studies have shown that drinking water can increase weight loss and promote weight maintenance, and it may even slightly increase the number of calories you burn each day (22, 23, 24).
8. Bake or roast instead of grilling or frying. The way you prepare your food can drastically change its effects on your health. Grilling, broiling, frying, and deep-frying are all popular methods of preparing meat and fish.
9. Take omega-3 and vitamin D supplements. Approximately 1 billion people around the globe are deficient in vitamin D (39). Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s very important for bone health and the proper functioning of your immune system.
10. Replace your favorite fast food restaurant. Eating out doesn’t have to involve unhealthy foods. Consider upgrading your favorite fast food restaurant to one with healthier options.

1. What Is It? The idea is simple: Eat healthy meals 80% of the time, and have more freedom with the other 20%. But how it’s done and how it will affect your weight can be different for everyone.
2. The 80% The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s federal diet guidelines can help you build a roster of “healthy” meals. The basic principle is to make half your plate fruits and vegetables, and change them up often.
3. The 80%: Vegetables. Add fresh, canned, or frozen ones to salads, or have them as side dishes or even entrees. Look for lots of different colors, which mean lots of different nutrients.
4. The 80%: Whole Grains. Look for these to be listed first on prepared foods like bread. Or go straight to the source with oatmeal, popcorn, farro, quinoa, or brown rice.
5. The 80%: Dairy. Go with fat-free milk, yogurt, soy, and nut milks to cut back on saturated fat. When you do have dairy fat, keep it to a minimum with low-fat versions of sour cream and cheese.
6. The 80%: Protein. Beef, chicken, and pork are fine, especially when they’re low in fat, but it’s better for your health to mix it up a bit. Fish, beans, peas, nuts, seeds, soy, and eggs add a variety of tastes for your palate and nutrients for your body.
7. The 20% After you’ve eaten healthy most of the week, it‘s time to enjoy yourself -- within reason. You might have onion rings as a splurge at lunch, a glass of wine at dinner, or an ice cream treat for dessert.
8. ‘Cheat Days’ Approach. With this, you specify a couple of days each week to indulge a bit. But try not to think of your meals as “punishment” or “rewards.”
9. Calories Approach. If you’re trying to lose weight, you might want to be a little more specific and splurge for 20% of the recommended number of daily calories.
10. Mixed Approach. Here, instead of that double bacon cheeseburger and soda that you only get once in a while, you fold treats into everyday eating. Sprinkle a little sugar on your grapefruit in the morning.
