Can you make a resolution to live a healthier and happier life? These days, there’s no shortage of weight-loss programs or nutritional advice — media outlets are constantly releasing ‘late-breaking’ reports about dietary discoveries, many of which contradict previous recommendations. This makes it quite difficult for anyone to know what actions to take. But if you are middle aged, there’s an additional obstacle: Very little of what we read and hear is specifically geared to providing dietary and nutritional guidance for people age 50 and over. Yet, midlife is a time when natural physiological changes and the cumulative results of longstanding lifestyle habits demand that we rethink how we eat if we are to remain vital. Next Avenue’s Fiftysomething Diet takes direct aim at the nutritional needs of those in the second stage of adulthood. Each chapter presents dietary suggestions that can maximize physical and cognitive wellness in the face of the bodily shifts that occur with age.
