DIET and NUTRITION

The Baby Boomer Diet holds a lot of different information on the details of the program. There is a reflection chapter that shows everything you need to do in a day to maximize the effects of the program. The eating portion of this diet is all about eating healthy and natural foods. Avoiding items that are heavily processed and full of complex carbohydrates is discouraged. There is a chapter on your body chemistry and one on different types of super foods you can eat that will help reverse the effects and signs of aging. Early in the morning when the body is just waking up, it is important to eat nutritionally dense, easy-to-digest, liquid foods and drinks. Your early morning routine might include several glasses of water to help hydrate the body followed by a fruit smoothie.

The middle of the day is mentioned as the best time to eat heavier proteins. For example, you might eat eggs, vegetables and a salad at 11 a.m. At around 1 p.m. you could follow that with a protein and veggie lunch. Those that want to gain weight are encouraged to have an alkaline snack at around three or four in the afternoon. This helps satisfy afternoon cravings and also motivate you to eat a healthy evening meal. Your final meal of the day should be vegetarian. This is because your digestive tract starts to slow down around sunset, so complex proteins will be difficult for the body to process. You should eat your meal early and keep it light. This meal should be 80 percent vegetables and include gluten-free seeds like quinoa millet, buckwheat or amaranth.

EXERCISE

The Baby Boomer Diet suggests combining intelligent exercise with a moderate restriction of calories. Getting sufficient exercise is advised although it is important to push yourself too hard.

CONCLUSION

Baby boomers now have a diet program that is designed specifically for them. The Baby Boomer Diet offers a healthy eating plan, sound exercise advice and tips for helping turn back the clock in a natural way. Anyone that follows this program can find beneficial ways to keep the body young and healthy.
