Much like exercising, eating smart makes you less likely to catch diseases in your 50s. Even small changes in the body can make a difference.

Your diet choices certainly play a role. Opting for nutrient-rich produce over processed meats and packaged foods, for example. This keeps you away from too much sugar, sodium, and food preservatives that directly negatively affect your blood pressure and the functioning of your organs.

Healthier options can best supply you with all the nutrients to address your needs as your body changes and your nutritional requirements increase.

4. Live, laugh, love with fam and friends
