Not surprisingly your nutritional requirements change as you age, particularly if you aren’t as active anymore. Whether you hope to lose or maintain your weight as you age, your caloric intake should take into consideration your level of physical activity.

It is important to eat foods that are calorie-wise and high in nutrition (avoiding or limiting high-calorie foods with little to no nutritional value). If you are eating more calories than you are burning, you will likely find yourself gaining weight. According to Dieticians of Canada, you should plan for three meals and one to three small snacks each day.
