4 Diet Changes Women Above 50 Should Make

The 50s is a perfect time to prioritize health, fitness and put that hard-earned knowledge of healthy living to work.

The benefits of getting fit when you’re older can be huge, all you have to do is tweak your habits, make some diet changes and live a productive life- for the years to come.

While the 50s can bring some challenges to women like menopause, a decrease in estrogen, progesterone or vitamin deficiency; to compensate with these changes a balanced diet with the right foods is vital.

The diet plan should incorporate foods that provide essential nutrients and protect the body from diseases, ageing and free radicals.

Here are four diet changes that women above 50 should consider making-

  • Take proper vitamins
  • Women comparatively have smaller frames and thinner bones. After menopause, bone density gets affected. 

    Calcium plays an important role in strengthening the bones. You can include milk, dairy products, leafy vegetables, soybeans, sardines or salmon with bones in your diet.

    Apart from calcium, Vitamin D, B12, magnesium and potassium also help in maintaining healthy body functions.

  • Increase protein intake
  • Muscle mass gradually declines with age and after 50, the human body loses lean body mass and strength up to 1-2% and 1.5- 5% per year.

    Hence, diet and exercise both are necessary to maintain this lean muscle mass. You can eat animal-based foods such as meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, dairy products or organic fruits, organic vegetables, grains and nuts to meet the required protein intake.

  • Moderate dinner
  • Ayurveda suggests that dinner should always be light and nutritious. As you age, your digestive process slows down and it needs more fibre.

    A wholesome khichdi is the best option to have in dinner as it is easy to digest and is full of calories, fat, protein, carbs and other nutrients.

  • Limit salt and sugar
  • Too much salt and sugar are linked to high blood pressure and diabetes respectively.

    Studies suggest that adults should eat only 6g of salt per day and women should eat 25g of natural or processed sugar in a day. 

    Whereas, added sugar is a big NO-NO for everyone.

    Make these few changes, exercise, keep smiling and you’ll realize that age is just a number.
