Diet is necessary, but what works? From Jim Flanagan


It is relatively simple, as we age, we lose bone density and muscle which is accelerated due to sedentary lifestyles.

A simple blue print is:

Balance your daily diet with choices from the major Whole Food Groups

Increase your daily intake of fresh fruit and vegetables to at least 5-10 servings

Control your portions (example-protein portions the size of your palm)

Increase your water intake to at least 8-12 8 oz. glasses per day

Make sure you get uninterrupted rest of 8 hours each night

Select an exercise program that incorporates the “Triangle of Physical Fitness”

Don’t count your calories each day, however don’t go below 1200 calories

Reduce the so-called “empty calorie” foods (all processed foods; sugar-loaded cereals; low fiber/high carb snacks)

This simple method works! Try it.

The simple blue print is from Jim Flanagan. However, I have modified a little on the choice of food groups and counting calories.
