Weight Factors for Individuals Over 60

By the time that we reach 60 we are well into our middle years. Because the risk of death rises with each decade that we're on earth, it become more important to pay attention to the foods we eat, the liquids that we drink, the amount of activity that we put into our day as well as other things that we choose to put into our body.

Our short-list of things to eliminate, reduce or eradicate from our life includes: tobacco, drugs and medicines - and this encompasses over the counter medications.

The Ageing Body's Cell Degeneration Health

As we age the body become more susceptible to illness as the body cannot repair cell damage as sufficiently as it did in its younger years.

This is why it's so vital that we are careful about getting around people who might be ill; the flu can quickly sap life in the older individual.

Medications in Senior Years Can Cause Medical Issues

In addition, medications that once produced no side-effects may make us feel dizzy or disoriented in our older years.

Keeping Healthy Via Recommended Body Weight

As to body weight, keep in mind that ALL data charts and recommendations related to such that are found online should be taken with a grain of salt.

They can be used as a pattern to set fitness goals - but because each of us was created differently, our ideal weight differs.

This is why there is no 'perfect weight chart'.

Many Elements Effect Body Weight, Such as Muscle Mass

While your friend or even family member who is 5'6" in height might be at a perfect weight of 137 pounds, you might be best at 150 pounds because you have more muscle mass and a larger body frame.

Also keep in mind that individuals - particularly women who have larger bust areas as well as buttocks will weigh more heavily than individuals who don't.

Even the length of one's hair can impact the bathroom scales.
