As we grow older, say from 40 years up to 65. There is nothing better than a total life style change to preserve us and keep us healthy. After 40 if a person still wants to keep living like a child, he or she might not make it passed middle age. If however such individuals make it, while living like children, then they might suffer a lot of health problems as they age. One of the first things someone over forty years should consider, will be a life of moderation. Drink moderately, eat healthy and wisely, sleep enough and don't deprive yourself of sleep because of partying, hanging out and all such youthful desires and occupations. Regular exercises should not be missed. Because at the age of forty and above the vital organs of a human being will need some aiding to function properly through exercising. Any man or woman who after 40 still consumes alcohol like a little boy or girl and indulge freely in all the things he or she did at age 20, or say 25, does not understand that the body is no more the same as it used to be. Many deaths, stroke, erectile dysfunction issues, heart problems, etc, that occur amongst middle age people today, can be avoided if people of this age group will just embark on a life style change. I have seen friends, neighbours and relatives who like me are middle agers but suffer like old men, die untimely, play with so much Viagra because of erectile problem. This ought not to be, life style change is the answer. At middle age a lot of changes takes place in us, living us not as strong as we use to be before, therefore we can't put unnecessary pressures that only youthful bodies can take, on our aging bodies. Eating time should be reduced to 7pm, because anything after 8pm is poison to the system of a middle aged person. Red meat should be substituted with white meat. Sugar, iced cold water, lots of salt, should be avoided. Load up on high-fiber fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Your whole digestive system does slow as you age, so fiber is very important. Consume fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruit, and vegetables. They will help you feel more energetic and give you fuel to keep going. Regular check up on our blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, breast, prostrate and so on will be very helpful. Bless you all fellow middle agers, we have gotten to that stage when we don't think of every other person and leave ourselves unattended to, think of yourself more now, you need you to stay well.
