Midlife Nutrition

Midlife Nutrition

Food has become a major point of consideration and discussion. The impact of the type of food that you eat at midlife can become very evident within a few days.

Your body and frame has changed over the years, and you need to intentionally understand yourself and take actions that will support you. I have experimented on myself a few times. For example, I decided to try a 3 month meal plan: basically 95% fruits, vegetables, roots and protein and only 5% carbohydrates.

The results were mind blowing for me, firstly I was able to increase my running/ brisk walking distance by 2km effortlessly, secondly I experienced better mental awareness, less fatigue, no more stress headaches and better control and feel of my body.

My regular bloating was gone and my tummy became flatter. I am not recommending this for you, just helping you see how food affects you at midlife.

See your physician for advice. I also reduced the quantity of meals by using a small measuring bowl or plate to portion my meals, the impact was seen on my tummy and body frame.

I felt really great, all because I worked on my meals, daily exercise, my office chair, driving options, drinks, water and most importantly made a decision to relax, be calm, happy and experience joy more.

I also changed my hard sole shoes to soft comfortable inner sole shoes to aid my blood flow. I have recognized that dressing from a functional, comfortable and ready to go approach helps me to feel much better.

Look at the Mirror, who do you see. Be the change you want to see happen.
