Never Too Late to Make Changes.
|Think it is pointless to make dietary and lifestyle
changes after age 51? Think again. A
study from the American
Journal of Public Health shows
that taking preventative steps will
not only substantially improve the
health of older Americans, but can be
achieved with little or no additional
lifetime medical spending.
The gain in life span for successfully
treating a person aged 51 or 52 for
obesity would be 0.85 years, for
hypertension 2.05 years, for diabetes
3.17 years, and for smoking 3.44
Researchers using valuations, life to
year, calculate that successful
treatments would be worth, per capita:
Live longer, feel better, spend less, and reduce
the stress on our health care system.

|We Should All Use
Our Molars More.
If we did, it would improve both our
waistlines and digestion. Chewing lets
saliva do digestive work before it
enters our gastrointestinal tract,
allowing us to better absorb
nutrients. Chewing slowly and more
often allows us to recognize satiety
signals (in other words, when you are
full). Most importantly, chewing
alerts our senses to the bouquet of
flavors that our food has to offer.
I have always embraced what some call
the "slow food movement,"
which is eating meals slower to savor
your food and digest better. While
very difficult to accomplish with our
fast-paced lifestyles, what we can all
do, however, is the "slow chew
movement." You will eat less and
not have as many cravings, thus
helping you achieve your ideal weight.
