Happy senior couple cooking together at kitchen. Focus on man.

There are many diets out there for people to choose from, and it can be overwhelming in which one to choose.  One diet that is seemingly more popular than others is the Mediterranean diet because it is one of the more effective diets in promoting health and preventing disease. This diet is based on the traditional cooking from the countries near the Mediterranean Sea, and it is very similar to other diets because it has the basic structure of being high in fruits and vegetables and whole grains with limitation on unhealthy fats.

The differentiation with the Mediterranean diet is the emphasis on healthy fats.  Whereas we put put butter on our bread, bread is either consumed plain or dipped in olive oil in the Mediterranean diet.  Furthermore, nuts are also an important part of this diet and nuts also contain a high amount of healthy fat.

A diet high in healthy fats from olive oil and nuts and low in unhealthy fats from butter or margarine over means a much more heart healthy diet and it has shown sign to reduce cases of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.  May is National Mediterranean Diet Month, and we encourage everyone to take a look at this wonderful diet and raise awareness of its benefits because reducing the number of heart diseases should be a top priority in this country.

There are so many factors to consider when trying to eat health. Many would first consider the taste, then they might narrow down to the ingredients, and so on.  To effectively live a healthy lifestyle, there are several tips that you may want to follow.

  • Take time to enjoy your food –  I always try to taste my food slowly, and try grasp the taste of the food I am eating.  As a result, I tend to eat less and not over-consume.
  • Dominate your plate with fruits and vegetables – You can never eat enough fruits and vegetables, so try to make a conscious effort in eating more by eating half a plate of fruits and vegetables per meal
  • Drink water – There are about 10 teaspoon of sugar in a 12 oz can of soda. That is enough sugar for the whole day! Try to avoid such dramatic sugar intake by drinking water throughout the day.
  • Control you calories- Every person has a calorie level to maintain their body weight.  Over it, and you will gain weight. Burn enough calories, and you will lose weight.
  • More grains – The body handles whole grain products much better than refined products.  Eat whole grain bread instead of white bread, brown rice instead of white rice, etc

These are just some of the many tips of health diets, follow them and you are on your way to better health and a better life.

Arthritis may be incurable but there are ways to manage arthritis and keep it under control. Start with the easiest changes you can make, the food you eat. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are caused by the inflammation of joints. Eating anti-inflammatory foods and avoid inflammatory foods can reduce the risk of  inflammation and pain. Omega 3 fatty acids rich foods such as salmon and tuna, ginger, turmeric, and flaxseed all have anti-inflammatory properties. Arthritis patients should avoid omega 6 fatty acids, according to WebMD, which “may also promote inflammatory and/or autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis”. Learn more about food and arthritis through “Can Your Diet Help Relieve Rheumatoid Arthritis?“. Arthritis patients should also consume more vegetables and fruits which contain higher levels of vitamin C and E which promotes anti-oxidant properties. Everyone’s health is different and there is no one set diet for arthritis patients. However, eating foods with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may help with arthritis.

A-1 Home Care in Corona Del Mar is a non medical home care agency providing quality in home care services including arthritis care. We work with caregivers who can prepare meals and assist in therapeutic exercises for arthritis patients.
