Eating as We Age
Many things change throughout our life span – our mobility, independence, health and nutrition needs. Many people notice changes in their food preferences, appetite and more as they get older. Some other considerations are how food choices affect chronic disease management in Elders. The MIND diet, or Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay diet, was created to address these concerns. The DASH and Mediterranean diets already have a lot in common. Both emphasize eating whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fish and heart-healthy oils. Researchers have looked into the benefits of these diets on heart health and chronic disease development, as well as in effects on cognitive decline. While much more research is needed to determine how these diets may affect one’s brain, heart and overall well-being during the aging process, it is clear that overall balanced diets incorporating all of the food groups are the best for us!
