Dr. Elena Solomatina, a Russian nutritionist, said that monotony in nutrition is the main mistake in the diet of older people.

The expert notes that with the daily use of the same products in the body, a deficiency of some useful substances may occur. Therefore, we must diversify the food we eat.

According to her, food should contain a high percentage of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

And he adds: The best source of carbohydrates for getting the energy you need are vegetables, fruits and whole grain bread.

And she says: “Every day we must change the products in the diet, that is, today we must eat one thing, and tomorrow another. It is also better if we eat some foods in the morning and others at dinner. “

And the expert adds: Older people should add cheese, peas, lentils, chickpeas and chicken to their diet. Healthy fats, which affect the functioning of hormones, should also be eaten. You can also add eggs, rabbit meat and turkey to the diet.

And Solomatina last January announced that turkey meat is best for the nervous system of the elderly, because it is rich in B vitamins, the lack of which causes dizziness and unsteadiness when walking.
