Eating well throughout adulthood pays off when people reach their 60s. According to NAOOA, consuming healthy foods helps prevent the most common diseases that afflict this age group, including diabetes, cancer, stroke, hypertension and heart disease.
People in their 60s should continue with the healthy eating habits established earlier in life by enjoying a diet rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber found in fruits and vegetables as well as healthy fats, such as the monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. They also should add strength-building exercise to their aerobic routine to protect against muscle loss associated with loss of balance, frailty and feebleness.
