Did you know that what you eat as you move away from your 50s into your later years makes the difference between living a vital independent life and potentially setting yourself up to struggle physically and mentally? Nutritional science proves that ageing bodies have unique needs that are not acknowledged in most public health advice. In fact, following eating advice most appropriate for young adults can be anything from unhelpful to downright dangerous in your later years: it can hinder healing and immunity and hasten dementia and frailty. Ngaire Hobbins is a dietitian specialising in the unique needs of ageing and wrote "Eat To Cheat Ageing" to inform people in their 60s and beyond, as well as anyone in their 50s heading there in the next decade, what ageing bodies really need to stay healthy and independent. This is a book that will empower you to know when to stop listening to health advice that no longer applies to you and help you understand what to eat and do to help, instead of hinder, in the years ahead.
