Food Facts

Older adults are nutrient deficient. New research suggests that more than half of Americans over age 50 don’t get enough essential nutrients. Supplements are necessary.

Tea can calm you. A study out of London found that tea drinkers had a 47 percent reduction in the stress hormone cortisol within an hour of completing a stressful assignment, while those given fake tea had only a 27 percent drop.

Blueberries beat more than 25 other fruits in antioxidant power—even pomegranates and grapes. Plus, one cup of blueberries has a whopping six grams of fiber.

Soup, if it has fiber, can help you eat fewer calories at a meal if you eat the soup prior to your entree. Try chicken and vegetable—skip the noodles.

Chewing gum can suppress your craving for sweets. If you’re in a trance thinking about pie, break out a stick of gum—sugar-free, of course.

Popcorn, which is mostly air, is a good snack choice for those looking to get ripped. Have a 100-calorie microwave pack with your protein shake to feel fuller.
