6 Foods You Should Really Start Eating If You’re Over 40

40 years old…

It’s often seen as a turning point in a man or woman’s life…

Whether you see it as a giant fork in the road, or just another year…

Studies suggest that the amount of energy burnt while resting begins to drop by the age of 30, and by a further seven per cent with every subsequent decade, so if you continue eating as you did in your 20s, you’ll start putting on weight.

Well, if you wanna keep healthy after you turn 40, you probably should bring these foods directly into your daily diet…

1. Almonds
Almonds have lots of calcium, fibre and folate, they’re also a great snack for anyone… Though most nuts are fairly healthy, almonds take the cake. Numerous medical studies reveal that a single serving of almonds every day will lower LDL cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Since fat calories are disproportionately high in nuts, we recommend eating them by the dozen per day.

2.Tomatoes
Tomatoes are an excellent source of the antioxidant lycopene. They offer a degree of protection against the formation and spread of cancer cells as well as protecting arteries from atherosclerosis.

2.Olive oil
Cultures where olive oil is a part of daily diets tend to have longer lifespans than the average American’s. This is because olive oil contains oleocanthal, which is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient that keeps the heart healthy. Just like any other oil, olive oil should be consumed in moderation.

4. Kale
Kale is a great option for a green, leafy vegetable, as it’s high in Vitamin K, lutein and zeaxthanin, which may help with vision.

5. Oranges
It’s important to be getting enough Vitamin C, found in your humble oranges, as this can reduce the duration and severity of
colds.

6.Chicken
This is an excellent source of protein. This helps to contribute to effective weight-management and muscle-building.
