Diet Should Be According to Age and Gender

From Anadolu Medical Center, Complementary Medical Center Nutrition and Diet Specialist Tuba Örnek indicated that the diet varies according to age and gender and gave the following information.

“Energy and protein requirements may vary in every age and period. As age increases, calorie restriction may be required because metabolism slows down compared to youth. Women generally have a higher fat rate than men. That’s why men’s metabolism works faster. During menopause, women’s metabolism fell by a little, they pay attention to the calcium intake; milk, yogurt, cheese, green leafy vegetables should be consumed. Heart diseases are more common in men. For this reason, men need to increase their physical activity with low-fat, sugar-free, fiber-free and balanced diet.”
