Nutrition and Seniors

Nutrition is a way of life. Nancy L. Fitness believes that along with a regimen of fitness, a program that includes good nutrition will only contribute to one’s wellness.


A healthy balanced diet includes foods from all the major food groups.  Consume your required calories from fruits, grains and vegetables, meats / proteins, dairy / calcium, and the correct (small) amount of healthy fat helps to maintain your healthful weight.  Also cut back on foods that are:

  • High in calories
  • Sugary
  • Fatty
  • High in salt / sodium

You don’t have to eliminate them completely, but they shouldn’t take up more than a tiny part of your daily menu.
