I keep reading about all the research and studies that are being conducted comparing the benefits of eating less and exercising more. Should one only exercise 30 minutes and continue eating the same or should one look at what you're eating and how many calories you're eating and if that amount of calories your eating is elevated then should you be exercising more, blah, blah, blah!!!
Let me share my thoughts as a 75 year old man who has managed to stay in good physical shape.
My experience is to keep it simple and not get mired down in the overwhelming amount of research about health as we age. I see a very easy remedy to this made up dilemma.
As you pass the age of 50 just start to "Eat Less and Exercise More."The chronic diseases begin to surface at that age, but can be avoided, so pay close attention to your health. It's really that simple and it's all in your hands if you are willing to do something about it.
Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
