At the same time, the specialist clarified that, as always, there are “buts”. For example, an elderly person can eat bread and porridge without harm to health if he has an ideal weight and a good indicator of carbohydrate metabolism and insulin resistance.
At the same time, Mukhina advised aged people to add cottage cheese, meat and eggs to their diet. It was in them that the doctor noticed the most correct balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
