The worldwide web is loaded with all kinds of information, misinformation, errors, mistakes and plain old lies. But most of us know that we can’t believe everything we read as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We also know when some things we read sound sensible or reasonable and other things sound outrageous!
Here is a quick list of anti-aging foods recommended for people age 50 and older.
- Green Leafy Vegetables
- Kefir or Yogurt
- Whey Protein
- Wild-Caught Seafood
- Olive Oil
- Dark Chocolate (the darker, the better)
I am of the opinion that this food list sounds sensible and reasonable. I am in the 50+ group. While I don’t disagree with the advice, numbers 3 and 4 are not a regular part of my diet. Number 4 (wild-caught seafood) is too expensive, and I would prefer to consult a medical professional before trying number 3 (whey protein). The rest of the foods were already in my diet before I even crossed the half a century mark.
What about you?
Regardless of your age, are any, some or all of these foods a regular part of your diet?
Do you have a “special food” that is your secret anti-aging weapon? If so, share your secret.
