Eating Right For The Golden Years

By Maria Dello 

The first twenty years are a gift; you can go to college, work two jobs, skip a couple of nights of sleep, and nothing seems to affect you. Then, you wake up in your forties and have your first ache and pain. Suddenly, now you’re your mother’s age, and longevity is on your mind. The ‘golden years’ don’t seem so far away anymore.

In my practice Dellonutritionals, I see patients in their 60s and 70s with a planned financial future, but not much investment in their health. Now, these patients are faced with pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, gout, and obesity. Most patients look back and regret not being mindful of their health.

Is one of the solutions to prepare when we still have Father Time on our side?

When we are younger, our cells replicate and we can restore our bodies quicker. Your skin cells regenerate every 27 days; even colon cells regenerate every 4 days. The real solution is plan ahead like we plan ahead for our financial portfolio; it’s crucial that we start early to prepare for the years ahead. If you are faced with these diseases, it’s not too late. Most ailments are a direct result of poor eating habits.

The body is very forgiving, and some of these ailments can be reversed through diet. Nutritional eating is part of a healthy lifestyle that entails avoiding all of the things that are bad for us—cigarettes, sugar, simple carbohydrates, too much alcohol—while gravitating toward what is good. Thus, it’s important for seniors, especially, to get regular exercise, drink plenty of water, and eat foods with health-related benefits.

Exercise plays a crucial role in reversing the time clock. For example, after age 30, the average man’s maximum heart rate declines by one beat per minute, per year. This diminished aerobic capacity can fatigue us, leading to breathlessness, even during everyday activities. Most Americans begin to gain weight in midlife, putting on 3–4 pounds a year. But since men start to lose muscle in their 40s, that extra weight is all fat. Muscle and bone loss can occur as well, leading to conditions such as osteoporosis and fractures.

So, what are the solutions? How can we ward off disease, and preserve Father Time? It’s not just as simple as exercise alone; reversing the time clock requires a combination of a balanced diet, active lifestyle, and having an optimistic outlook on longevity. Important vitamins for longevity include CoQ10, fish oil, a good multivitamin, and Vitamin D. Some must-have foods for proper nutrition include:

  • Asparagus and kale—high in vitamin B6, excellent for your nervous system
  • Cucumbers—rehydrates the body and is excellent for your skin
  • Avocado—contributes to healthy blood flow, making it a great brain food
  • Olive oil—raises good cholesterol levels
  • Beets—gives an energy boost while also lowering blood pressure
  • Turmeric—a culinary spice with anti-inflammatory properties
  • Cinnamon—stir a bit into your tea to control blood sugar
  • Green tea—a great drink for boosting your metabolism
  • Red wine—in moderation, serves as a great antioxidant
  • Fish oil and coconut oil—healthy for the heart and the brain
  • Sauerkraut—a fermented food that aids in absorption

Studies also show that laughter, positivity, high morale, and future-oriented optimism are crucial in increasing longevity. Keeping your brain alert and maintaining an active social life are also very important components of this longevity solution. Laughter is truly the best medicine.
