Fiber

Foods that are high in fiber — like fruits and veggies, oatmeal, nuts, and legumes — can help with constipation that becomes more common as you age. They’re also able to help lower your cholesterol levels, manage your blood sugar, and keep you at a healthy weight. If you’re a man who’s 51 or older, aim to eat 30 grams of fiber each day. If you’re a woman, try for about 21 grams.
