Eat Wisely

What you eat affects your health

(HealthDayNews) -- It's no secret that healthy eating is important, especially as you age.

Food can play a role in cardiovascular disease, some cancers, adult-onset diabetes, osteoporosis and how well you recover from a major injury.

The American College of Gastroenterology offers these nutrition tips:

  • Your daily fat intake should amount to 30 percent or less of the total number of calories you consume.
  • Your saturated fat intake should account for 10 percent of your calorie consumption.
  • Limit your salt and alcohol intake.
  • Avoid high-fat foods, such as whole milk, ice cream, cheese, and butter, commercially baked cookies and crackers, hot dogs, ham, and cold cuts, oils, gravies, and salad dressings.
