5 Foods You Should Never Eat After 50!

If in youth we eat and drink everything, then in adulthood it is time to think about what enters our body

In particular, it is important to understand that after 50 years, it is important to remove a number of familiar products from the diet of any person. Learn more about what these products are in today's article.

At any age, you should reduce the intake of food that causes inflammation in the body. It includes sugar and sugar-containing products.

You should also limit the amount of dairy products, as they include insulin-like growth factor.

If you abuse flour, sugar and carbohydrates, a lot of insulin is produced in the pancreas, which is considered the main cause of dangerous diseases after 50 years. Accordingly, the more sugar, the more insulin will be produced. Dairy products only exacerbate the situation, as they also increase its level.

You should refuse buns and cookies with milk. Dyes and preservatives can also play a trick on the body, try to reduce their amount.

At the same time, you should not completely give up dairy products, because after 50 years we desperately need calcium: during menopause, we actively lose it, and it is almost impossible to accumulate it.

The easiest way to get calcium from dairy products is that everyone knows. But what many do not know is that calcium is almost not absorbed without fat and vitamin D, which is abundant in whole milk and products from it, but practically absent in skimmed milk. Therefore, you should not cut calories at the expense of low-fat foods, because in the end you will lose not only calories, but also nutrients valuable for the functioning of the body.

It is especially worth limiting the consumption of red meat after 50 years. Because with age, the concentration of stomach acids decreases. Accordingly, food is digested worse and more difficult to digest, especially meat.

It is better to give preference to "light" protein: fish, seafood, legumes.

Two glasses of juice daily is a direct path to cardiology. Alas, this is not a joke: regularly drinking fruit juice doubles the risk of heart disease: juices are high in fruit sugar and lack fiber, which would help stabilize blood glucose levels.

As for smoothies, you should choose only those that you have prepared yourself: sweeteners or salt and other flavor enhancers that adversely affect health are often added to ready-made smoothies.

Try to drink less coffee, as this greatly affects the cardiovascular system. You can check her condition by passing an analysis for homocysteine: it shows cardiorisks. If its level is elevated, coffee is excluded in the first place.

In addition, caffeinated drinks prevent the absorption of iron. That is, they can lead to its deficiency and hypoxia (lack of oxygen in the body). Symptoms include mild dizziness, weakness, and fatigue.

Lattes, cappuccinos, frappuccinos, and other coffee-based drinks - as delicious as they are, it's best to stay away from them. Because in fact, this is not a cup of coffee at all, but a real calorie bomb.

In addition, sweet syrups, often added for flavor, often contain artificial sweeteners that increase the risk of developing dangerous diseases, including type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.

If there are no contraindications (for example, diarrhea, stomach problems), include more fresh vegetables in the diet. 

You should also focus on fish and seafood, but be careful with cereals. You need a light diet that will be easy for the body to digest.

Nutritionists advise against counting calories.

Here, a complete diet is more important, which includes proteins, fats, carbohydrates. Proteins should be easy to digest, fats should be healthy. The latter are best consumed, for example, in the form of nuts, avocados, oily fish, eggs. Avoid trans fats like margarine, refined butter or deep fat.
