(HealthDay News) -- As your body ages, you need fewer calories without sacrificing nutritional quality. Nutrient-dense foods can make sure your body gets what it needs without excess calories.
The Weight-loss Information Network recommends these choices:
- Fruits and vegetables in a wide rainbow of colors.
- Whole-grain foods such as whole-wheat bread, oatmeal and brown rice.
- Low-fat and fat-free dairy products such as cheese and milk, or vitamin D and calcium-fortified soy milk.
- Healthy, lean proteins such as eggs, poultry, seafood and lean meat, seeds, nuts and beans.
