When you go past 65 years of age does healthy food realy matter, If i like something I eat it, I like steak and chips but some days I enjoy a pie and beans, some days I just have a sandwich and a glass of beer I like belhaven beer and I like pasta and a glass of red wine.

Good morning to all.I think that as long as you try your best ,fruit,veg,water etc etc then a little extra does no harm in moderation...

The best time to start smoking.
Calm down dears! No,there is never a good time to start smoking I know...but;If you did want to start,apparently 60 yo.is a good time to do so.I thought "that's crazy" when I read it,but if you are going to start,then I suppose it makes sense. Any fatal disease will take possibly 30 yrs to develop,by which time most people will have succumbed to some other illness and died! Sorry for going off topic,and of course it is important,even for smokers to have a balanced diet(back to topic).Ex Smoker Stan.

The old saying goes 'A little of what you fancy does you good' and i think thats true of all foods. Except when your at afternoon tea on a cruise and then its a case of lots of what you fancy, i love those cakes......................................Carol
I am not a big eater but when I go on a cruise ship and look at the breakfast in the morning I have a bit of everything, when I'm in the house I have poridge and toast in the morning, but when someone else makes it for you, I seem to eat more.
THANKS FOR ALL THE REPLYS
Living to eat, not eating to live.
You are certainly correct to enjoy whatever you like, though with the caveat that you have not been professionally warned to avoid.
There is ample room to enjoy all the wonderful gastronomic offerings available today and, providing you 'balance' your diet and participate in regular exercise, anyone our age can certainly indulge in good food.
I am a huge fan of red meat but heed the advice of the medical profession and restrict the use of salt. Hence when I cook or am 'dining out' I prefer my meats 'rare'.
As I am on my pet subject and I only recently added a picture for Stan, I make a point of having an 'oily' type of fish twice a week. Saturday just gone was kippers for breakfast...
There, it's stopped raining, I'm off out on the old bike, wonder what I'll come home with for this evening.

Hi Richard, your red meat looks lovely and those kippers, I enjoy steaks with a glass of wine, and I enjoy my poridge in the morning, every time I go to the hospital or the doctors they ask the same questions, what do you eat and what do you drink I stopped smoking and drinking 2year ago, but I like a glass of red wine with a meal.
