1 Diet for Males over 70 Years Old By Khalid Qumsieh Beloit College Introduction: Old people have some disabilities as a result of their senescent cells which have stopped or decreased producing certain substances. Moreover, their organs’ functional ability diminishes with age. To retain good health, their nutritional intake must be soft and liquid and must contain the necessary substances to compensate the lack of function. Moreover, their intake must be in small meals served five times a day taking into consideration the weaker muscles. It is known that the elderly form a growing percentage of any population (6.9 percent in the year 2000 and increasing to 16 percent by the year 2050). Therefore, finding the dietary requirements for the very elderly has become essential.

However, they are weak because of age. My hypothesis is that very elderly people might benefit from meals that are soft and liquid, which are in small proportions that can be easily digested, since the ability to digest decreases with age. Meals that are difficult to digest are excluded. Moreover, the elderly could benefit from taking five to six meals per day. Beverages are highly recommended, especially fresh juices. I consulted a physician from Palestine and he recommended that vegetables and fruits are required daily. White meat and fish should be eaten once a week, whereas red meat should be taken every two weeks. Big amounts of chocolates are not recommended. Therefore I will be conducting my research based on the suggestion given to me by the physician. I will describe the dietary components required by old people in greater detail and list the essential nutrients required for proper digestion for the aged. KEY: # Elderly RDA is LESS by around 50% ## Elderly RDA is IMPORTANT LESS than Adult Elderly RDA is MORE than Adult RDA Food Pyramid for Elderly People Discussion: Here, I am going to mention some of the most common problems many of the very elderly have:  Cannot Chew: It is known that many elderly have no teeth, and hence chewing the food is a problem for them. To avoid that, here is what to do: Instead ofTry Fresh FruitFruit juices Raw Vegetables Vegetable juices and creamed and mashed cooked vegetables MeatGround meat, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt Sliced BreadCooked cereals, rice, bread  Upset Stomach: Like too much gas, this may make you stay away from foods you think cause the problem: Instead ofTry MilkCream soups, pudding, yogurt, and cheese Vegetables like cabbage and broccoli Vegetable juices and other vegetables, like green beans, carrots, and potatoes Fresh FruitFruit juices and soft canned fruits References: RDA for elderly people: RDA for Adult (20+): Convenient food: Food pyramid for elderly people:
