Making the right lifestyle decisions, paired with a routine of healthy food and regular exercise, can provide adults with the ability to avoid illness and disease. Making smart food choices early in life and through adulthood can also help reduce the risk of certain conditions such as:​

  • Obesity

  • Hypertension

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • High cholesterol

  • Kidney disease & kidney stones

  • Gout

  • Gallbladder disease

  • Alcohol and chemical dependency

  • Pre-diabetes

  • Intestinal disorders (IBS, IBD, GERD, Celiac, UTI)

  • Liver Disease

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans provide practical guidelines for healthful eating. In addition, consider these key factors to maintaining a healthy diet:

  • Enjoy the wide variety of foods

  • Eat regularly

  • Balance and moderation

  • Maintain a healthy body weight and feel good

  • Don't forget your fruits and vegetables

  • Base the diet on foods rich in carbohydrates


At the onset of adulthood, energy requirements usually reach a plateau that will last until one's mid-forties, after which they begin to decline, primarily because of activity levels and lean muscle mass (amount of muscle vs. body fat), which represents the BMR (the energy required by the body to keep functioning), decrease. It is believed that the changes in body composition and reduced lean muscle mass occur at a rate of about 5% per decade, and energy requirements decrease accordingly. However, these changes in body composition and decreased energy requirements can be prevented by maintaining regular physical activity, including resistance training, which helps maintain lean muscle mass and prevent deposition of excess body fat.


By preventing normal age-related decline in lean muscle mass, one can prevent obesity and prolong one's physiological age. The result is that a person is less vulnerable to degenerative diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes, and can usually perform at a higher level than his or her chronological age would otherwise allow.
