The Importance of Your Diet

By Wednesday, 25 July 2018 04:16 PM Current | Bio | Archive

The world is becoming more obese, and with all that weight comes increased medical problems. Needless to say, maintenance of a good body weight and good diet is important. Luckily, there are resources to help you.

One is a magazine called EatingWell, available at EatingWell.com. Another magazine is called Prevention, available at Prevention.com.

Books that I suggest include the Natural Healing Encyclopedia by Mark Stengler, M.D., available at HealthRevolutions.com; and The Li Kung 14-Day Liver Detox by Daniel Marshall, available at BuyGoods.com. The latter book is based on Chinese Medicine, and the data presented shows that some people who have followed this program have reached more 100 years of age.

So, these are all diet changes that should be considered to improve your status as you age and to maintain mental and bodily functions as you age.

Also, the Mayo Clinic has a letter entitled Mayo Clinic Health Letter that provides information about the weight to maintain active body functions and maintain your weight as you age.
