As You Age: Eat Less, Exercise More!!

I'm sure I've touched on this subject in a previous blog but I'm compelled to write about it again.

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.

The Learning Curve

I've been working on a fitness program for adults over 50 for the last two years called, "A prime life." It's been a huge learning curve for me not only because this has never been my line of work but because my computer skills and internet savvy is somewhat limited. But I'm learning!!

The main focus will be on motivation, to get people to "just go out the door." The exercises and healthy eating tips will be ones you may have heard for years only now you'll be reminded on a daily basis.

Each day you will receive an e-mail with an attached 3 minute video reminding you to "just go out the door." In that video we'll take you through a series of simple exercises and discuss healthy tips on eating. These exercises and healthy eating tips will be demonstrated by us, your contemporaries. You'll see exercises and heathy eating tips designed to accommodate your age group. Remember this video is to motivate you to, "just do them."

An announcement will be made when this program is available, hopefully within in the next month. So if you feel that it's hard to get motivated to exercise and eat healthier please take a look at our website.

Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
