    Healthy food

    When you go past 65 years of age does healthy food realy matter, If i like something I eat it, I like steak and chips but some days I enjoy a pie and beans, some days I just have a sandwich and a glass of beer I like belhaven beer and I like pasta and a glass of red wine.

    That all sounds like a healthy balance of protein, carbohydates, fats and sources of vitamins and minerals to me assuming there is some salad in the sandwich. It's just the quantities which may be out of balance..

    At 65 you could have another 25 years to look after yourself?

    However, it is somewhat debateable what is 'healthy'? For example, they say red wine good for you, but too much is bad.

    The best time to start smoking.

    Calm down dears! No,there is never a good time to start smoking I know...but;If you did want to start,apparently 60 yo.is a good time to do so.I thought "that's crazy" when I read it,but if you are going to start,then I suppose it makes sense. Any fatal disease will take possibly 30 yrs to develop,by which time most people will have succumbed to some other illness and died! Sorry for going off topic,and of course it is important,even for smokers to have a balanced diet(back to topic).Ex Smoker Stan.

    The old saying goes 'A little of what you fancy does you good' and i think thats true of all foods. Except when your at afternoon tea on a cruise and then its a case of lots of what you fancy, i love those cakes......................................Carol

    I am not a big eater but when I go on a cruise ship and look at the breakfast in the morning I have a bit of everything, when I'm in the house I have poridge and toast in the morning, but when someone else makes it for you, I seem to eat more.

    THANKS FOR ALL THE REPLYS

    Good afternoon John. I don't normally join threads that aren't either cruising related or political, but this is a subject very dear to my heart.

    You are certainly correct to enjoy whatever you like, though with the caveat that you have not been professionally warned to avoid.

    There is ample room to enjoy all the wonderful gastronomic offerings available today and, providing you 'balance' your diet and participate in regular exercise, anyone our age can certainly indulge in good food.

    I am a huge fan of red meat but heed the advice of the medical profession and restrict the use of salt. Hence when I cook or am 'dining out' I prefer my meats 'rare'.

    There are a number of valid reasons for this but one of the most beneficial is that by having your meat 'rare' less of the 'blood and juices' have been lost in the cooking process and hence the requirement for salt, in order to taste the meat, is negated.

    As I am on my pet subject and I only recently added a picture for Stan, I make a point of having an 'oily' type of fish twice a week. Saturday just gone was kippers for breakfast...

    ...fresh Manx and simply grilled, not this butter soaked boiled in a bag excuse.

    There, it's stopped raining, I'm off out on the old bike, wonder what I'll come home with for this evening.

    Living to eat, not eating to live.

    Hi Richard, your red meat looks lovely and those kippers, I enjoy steaks with a glass of wine, and I enjoy my poridge in the morning, every time I go to the hospital or the doctors they ask the same questions, what do you eat and what do you drink I stopped smoking and drinking 2year ago, but I like a glass of red wine with a meal.
    I used to sail out of southampton in the 70s on the car ferries townsend thoresn I think was the name of the company

    You say 'when you go to the hospital...' Does this infer you have a reason to ask if healthy eating is important?
