What is a good diet for me?

Get to know your foods

Good nutrition and food-types that each one of us need will vary with each person. Nutrition is gained from the proper food input to our bodies, that work the best for our needs, i.e. growth, replacement of tissues, etc. Food types (besides being the milk, meat, vegetables/fruit, and bread/cereal groups) are basically what our Senior bodies need for a healthy being. Meats could be needed for some of us, an absolute no-no to others. It is important to remember that each persons needs vary, and it is equally important to check with your doctor just what foods you need (or can tolerate) for your particular health maintenance. I found this interesting website about nutrition you might want to check: http://www.nutritionnewsfocus.com/ you can subscribe (free) to their nutrition newsletter. But checking with your doctor is the priority!
