What are the benefits of eating slowly for people over 35?

The benefits of eating slowly are by chewing your food and taking the time to chew your food, you will digest your food much better. The other is, it takes you about 20 minutes to realize you've even eaten. So if you chew slowly, you eat slowly. In a nice environment, then you'll feel satisfied sooner and you won't eat too much.

How does time of day factor into eating right?

You always want to start your day with a good breakfast. Have a good lunch. And when you eat dinner, don't eat after 8 o'clock. You're not burning calories in the evening and when you're sleeping. So if you have a huge meal at the end of the day, it's just going to stay with you. You should eat several times during the day. They don't have to be all big meals. They can be several snacks during the day. But you should never go more than four hours without eating some kind of a meal.

Can supplements help keep me healthy after 35?

Supplements are very popular today, probably not as necessary as most people think. If you eat a healthy diet, good breakfast, lunch and dinner, good snacks, you get everything you need through your meals, that's more important than adding something through supplements to make up for what you're missing. I mean, if you're missing something, okay, supplements can be helpful, but try and get all the nutrients, everything you need through your meals. Supplements can be very effective if you're missing something in your diet, if you're not getting something through the regular foods you eat, but generally it's hard for you to tell what that is. You should really see a nutritionist or your doctor to find out what you're missing in your diet and what you need through supplements.
