What a great article!!! My grandparents are getting fairly old, and both of them are overweight. I've always felt like once you get to acertain age, like, perhaps past 65, dieting becomes a little dangerous. So it's good to see that there actually ARE healthy ways of doing so once ou've become elderly.

I?m trying to lose some weight and maintain a healthy body, I?m 63 now and I do exercise because I have this habit since I can remember, well and I?m fine but I want to feel better so I decided to opt for a vegetarian diet for a while, at least for 3 or 4 month, so this article can help me a lot to avoid getting bored of the same food, thank you very much
