NUTRITIONS AND FITNESS WHICH ARE RECOMMENDED BY AGE
Generally most of the people among 1 to 25 years are healthy and active with normal physical behaviors. In this age they don’t care about their health. At the age of 26 to 40 years (Middle age) people become tired but they retain ability to work well. A person in the middle adulthood stage ages from 40 to 60 years. In this period they become sick, and might have some age relate diseases such as Blood Pressure, diabetes, gout, cancer, poor eye sight, back ache etc. Finally people who are 60 plus in age became old. They do not work actively and most of them are about to die.
