1. Breakfast may be key to managing your weight in middle age. People aged 40-75 who ate a greater proportion of their total daily calories in the morning put on fewer pounds than those who ate more food later in the day.
2. Drink plenty of tea-three or more cups a day- can help women cut the risk of heart disease and stroke by keeping plague from building up in the arteries.
3. A personal digital assistant (PDA) can help you stick to your workout routine. Scheduling exercise reminders in your electronic calendar can double the amount of time you spend getting fit.
4. Folic acid may be protective against Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists report that older people with low levels of this B vitamin were 3.5 times more likely to develop dementia.
