AbstractOptimal body weight values associated with good health outcomes in elderly people aged 70 years and over differ from values for the general adult population, and the emphasis is on weight maintenance and avoidance of weight loss. Dietary patterns for maintaining cardiovascular and bone health include dietary patterns such as the Mediterranean Diet, restriction of saturated fats and salt, adequate protein, calcium, vitamin D and C intake. Outcomes of particular importance for older populations include maintenance of mobility and independence, and nutrition is an important factor in maintaining muscle mass and function. Good unique to Asia that are beneficial for health include soya beans, tea, and possibly black rice.
