Yes, forty is the new thirty and fifty is the new forty. However, that is not the case when it comes to nutrition. As we get older, our needs for certain micronutrients increase although we may need less calories overall. Moreover, since our basal metabolism (the number of calories we burn when we are at rest) decreases due to loss in muscle and decrease in physical activity, we have to consume more nutrient dense foods to ensure that we get all the macro and micronutrients.

Best Senior Entertainment Website
Although TOS50.com has developed their website primarily for people on "the other side of 50," and features Senior Entertainment and Baby Boomer Arts, the website is actually quite entertaining for men and women of all ages. Having said that, it's necessary to point out that there are sections of the website that are specifically for seniors.
Baby Boomer Arts, Senior Health, Family Planning, Gardening, Senior Nutrition, Women Hairstyles, Elderly Travel, Senior Hair Styles, Senior Reading, Baby Boomer Health and More
The Health and Wellness Section emphasizes Baby Boomer Health as well as Senior Health, Healthy Living, and Senior Fitness. The Travel Section does discuss some interesting trips, but includes Senior Travel and/or Elderly Travel with programs such as Exploritas (formerly known as Elderhostel). Since Senior Reading is always important, the book club has interesting selections; and for those seniors who are experiencing vision problems, it is possible to purchase Large Print Books. Family Relationships, Family Counseling and Family Planning are featured in both the Family Dynamics Section and to some extent through the life coaches who give advice to the Baby Boomer Retirement Community. There is a Food and Nutrition Section which is important for Senior Nutrition, but this is definitely a subject that is equally important for everyone. The same is true for the Greening and Gardening Section which gives many tips for "Green Living." Kiki, a talented hairstylist, speaks about Women's Hairstyles, not only Senior Hair Styles. The Volunteer Section of the website features very worthwhile charities. Senior philanthropy is important, however philanthropy at all ages is equally important. Philanthropy can be $25 or $2,500 to your favorite charity, depending on your ability.
TOS50.com is an entertaining website for seniors and juniors, no matter what your age may be.
