I'm 70. My digestion is becoming more sensitive, and I have had to make some dietary changes. I can't eat large portions, and too much fat gives me heartburn. I've become sensitive to salt and don't enjoy high-sodium foods. Many restaurant dishes taste too salty to me. The portions are huge, too, so I usually eat only half my meal. Then I box up the rest and take it home. Also, I can't seem to digest raw food, especially fruits and vegetables. More than a modest portion will cause intestinal distress. I drink kefir every day, and that seems to keep my insides happy.

Even now i still do. Everyone i hang out with is at least 70!

People my age - late 50s - still want to act like they are in high school.

So let him stay!
I think this poster is only in his twenty`s, or thirty`s. All I am saying to him is, there is plenty of time, to be old. Just seems like he is missing out...

I've cut down some on gluten just because of bloat but have given up nothing.

I do better, especially at night, if I eat low carb and absolutely no sugar.

Some people are mentioning alcohol. When I was younger, I was at the Dr. getting a physical and he asked me about my alcohol consumption. I said that I was a social drinker. He raised his eyebrow and asked how many drinks a night? I said you know, a six pack of beer in the fridge will last me a month or two. He laughed and said Boy, that's not social drinking. He told me he had patients that said they were social drinkers and drank a six pack or two a night.

Vega's comment is so accurate. Too bad people wait until they are sick before they try to eat healthy. Drinking alcohol and sugar drinks, eating animals, eating or drinking the fat from dairy, all sugar and salty foods along with fried foods; ingesting these foods will lead to poor health. Americans are sicker than ever and taking pills because of their poor choices. Pills do not solve the problem; they mask the pain and actually cause more health problems. Medical doctors get no training in nutrition, they are not part of any solution.
