Longevity Tip ~ Protein is Your Friend

Muscle loss is a normal part of aging, but eating enough protein can help you preserve what you’ve got—and even support your efforts to build more.  How much should you get in a day? . . . Adults over 65 need 1 to 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of weight to support muscle health. (That’s at least 68 grams of protein per day for a 150-pound person.) Make sure to add a lean protein source to each meal, like fish, poultry, or beans. Think: Greek yogurt with fruit, hummus with veggies, or a protein-packed nutritional drink.
