Healthy Eating After Age 50

No matter what your age, a healthy diet plays a crucial role in preventing chronic conditions, maintaining mental awareness and strengthening immunity. “Unfortunately, as the years go by, health challenges that affect appetite, changes in metabolism, and lifestyle can get in the way of healthy meal preparation and the consistent consumption of nutrient-rich foods,” says Amish Shah, D.O., M.P.H., Botsford Hospital’s first fellow in its new training program in geriatrics.

Dr. Shah offers these suggestions to help make your diet healthier.

Botsford Hospital’s weight and nutrition classes are open to the community.
