Active Aging

Live a vibrant, active life at any age

Vibrant, active living at any age

There is no age limit for living an active lifestyle and it is never too late to start! One of my earliest opportunities to witness active aging was when I was the dietitian for the 70+ Team in the Race Across America in 1996. The team of four men were all over the age of 70 and were the first team of individuals this age to successfully complete the nonstop, cross-country bicycle race. Since then, I have been working with individuals to optimize their nutrition to support health and well-being, disease prevention and active living at any age.

As we move through life, the general nutrition and exercise recommendations for adults are appropriate. However, there are unique considerations and variations to the recommendations based on individuals’ family history and current condition. Our goal is to increase your healthspan, keeping you in good health and physical function for as long as possible. In order to target this goal, we need to consider how to optimize your nutrition and exercise for:

  • Managing your current health conditions
  • Preventing future health concerns
  • Building muscle mass and muscle quality
  • Enhancing bone health
  • Avoiding muscle and joint injuries
  • Supporting optimal vision
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Meeting daily dietary requirements (especially with reduced appetites)

We can also target the additional challenges that come with changing life circumstances such as cooking for one or two, changes in available financial resources and the increased frequency of dining out. I can help you navigate all of these considerations and together we will develop a plan for vibrant living for years to come!
