One of the main reasons why people tend to overeat and gain weight is because they don’t eat enough to feel full. I’ve talked to , the COO of Americare Companies, to give me an explanation, and he admits it seems paradoxical, but it’s simply true. If you eat a lot, you can stay slim and avoid overeating.

Here are some tips suggested by Pewzner that can help the elderly succeed in eating healthy and staying slim:

  1. Eat Enough Carbs

Despite the popular belief that carbs are bad for your line, bread, pasta, rice and beans should make up a third of your daily diet. Regularly eat bread with meals, because if you avoid it you’ll probably end up eating the same amount of some other food that has way more calories. The above-mentioned products are not high in calories, which means they won’t make you gain weight unless you don’t add some high-fat sauces, butter or something similar.

  1. Eat Products with High-Water Content

High-water-content foods will make you feel full. These foods are hydrating, refreshing, filled with nutrients, and naturally low in calories. This includes non-creamy soups, homemade low-fat soup, and other stews.

  1. Cut off the Unnecessary Fat from Your Diet

A little fat is necessary for good health, but you do not need to exaggerate. The elderly health-care experts recommend avoiding such food as much as possible, but not completely cutting them off your diet.

  1. Instead of Candy Eat Fruits and Vegetables

Celery, cucumbers, apples, mandarins and other similar foods make you full, and they’re low in calories. Plus they are rich in vitamins and minerals, which is always a good thing. Stay away from those grab-and-go shakes or bars.

  1. Replace Deep-fried Food with Grilled or Steamed Food

Instead of cooking your food in deep fryer or pan, using high-fat oil, he suggests preparing it with a steamer or on a grill. It will also make you full, but it will contain way fewer calories.

Being balanced in your food will make you younger and even feel balanced in other aspects of your health. Losing weight doesn’t mean being constantly hungry. Eating real food is the only solution for this strategy.

I think Fruits and lots of exercise should be best suitable for keeping fit. I do lots of exercise regularly and take lots of fruits too. Though a nightly massage would be magical, who can afford that? Foam rolling is the next best thing when it comes to working out the kinks in your muscles that accumulate over the course of the day. Plus, you can use it as workout tool for exercises that improve your balance and core strength. This result to good body shape, quality sleep time and lot more benefits to your body system. Keep Fit, Keep… Read more »

It’s hard, I mean really hard trying to eat enough carbs and at the same time cutting off unnecessarily fats from the diet. Reading all these great information most times gets me confused the more. How does one find a balance that includes exercises on the plan?

Ray Plumlee

Exercise should always be a part of every plan. As for finding a balance between carbs, fats and proteins. I find that if I just avoid all wheat/grain foods and anything made with sugar everything else falls into place automatically. Without all those insulin spikes that grains and sugar produce my eating habits easily settle into a routine of eating vegetables, fruits, nuts and lean meats and some cheese (my weakness). I also limit my intake of dairy products. Just eating my fill from these groups seems to trigger some sort of instinct to eat all i need from these… Read more »

Adding more liquids to diet categorically helps. Other than liquids, gradually add carbs to your major meals. Don’t add carbs at once! Stay away from fats and fried food and you will certainly lose weight quickly.

Maria E. Gunderson

Great tips! I have to revisit my diet plan. My doctor has already advised me to include more carbs and do some exercise everyday.
