Home #SayangMyAge, healthy eating tips for age 50s

Hey everyone, I'm SK here! People in their 50s often report a renewed sense of purpose and vitality as they let go of their earlier self-images and look ahead to the “next phase of life”. Me too of course!

I started to take care of my diet since 5 years ago and monitor my weight as I know being overweight could lead to diabetes, heart disease or even cancer at my age...When I was younger, I used to "invest" all my effort in taking care of my outlook . And now, I finally understand that to be at my best in my 50s, 60s and more, a healthy body is what I truly need.

Tips from Wise Crafters 健康饮食小贴士 

Eating well when we age is more than just the diet. It’s also about the pleasure of enjoying the meals, which increases when a meal is shared among our friends and family. A happy social atmosphere stimulates our mind, makes meals more enjoyable and helps us stick to healthy eating plan.


1) Celebrate our lives with wholesome meals 全天然的食物,全天然的生活能量!

Wholesome meals typically do not contain added ingredients, such as sugar, salt, or fat. In other words, they are foods that are as close to their natural state as possible which mean it gives you more energy and helps you look better, resulting in a boost to your mood and self-esteem. It’s all connected—when your body feels good, you feel happier inside and out to get a wholesome life~


2) Protect Your Bones 保护骨骼 

Maintaining bone health as you age depends on adequate calcium intake to prevent osteoporosis and bone fractures. Good sources include milk, yogurt, cheese or non-dairy sources such as tofu, broccoli, almonds, and kale can help you protect your bones. Don't make your body be like 50s if you're only 30s. 

每天坐在椅子上坐久了都会觉得腰酸骨痛,身体反应真的没以前来的那么敏捷。这是因为骨骼会随年龄的增长而变得越来越脆弱。先别灰心,因为只要摄取足够的钙质,这个骨骼的问题还是能够得以改善的哦!钙质丰富的食物有:西兰花,奶制品,杏仁和豆腐。除了适量地摄取地把这些钙质丰富的膳食外,我们也应该注重体重管理,因为过胖的体重会为身体,尤其是骨骼带来负担和压力。另外,也提醒自己不要一直唠叨说“老了就是这样了”不要给身体这些负面的暗示! 我们不是也时常在网上看到一些五,六十岁的美模女明星也能身体健康,且时常运动吗?慢慢来,你也一样能!(量力而为)

3)Life saving nutrient, Fibre! 膳食纤维可救命!

Taking dietary fibre can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, improve the health of your skin, as well as helping you to lose weight. As you age, your digestion becomes less efficient, so it’s important to include enough fibre in your diet. Women over 50 should aim to eat at least 25-30 grams of fibre per day.

Increasing the amount of soluble fibre such oat, wholegrain, fruits, vegetables, chickpeas and nuts in your diet may help to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer and improve your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. And oatmeal is one of the best foods that rich in natural fibre, every half cup of oatmeal contains 9 g fibre.
