5 Foods to Avoid in Your 50s

2nd Glass of Wine

For women, the known health benefits of wine are based on drinking a single, 5-ounce glass per day, but a second glass can take a toll on your organs and essentially negate the positive effects of the first glass.  It may also prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep, as the pseudo-sedative usually wakes you up when your blood alcohol level drops, resulting in overall restlessness.  (Remember, the extra wine can lower your resolve to eat healthy, too – and have I mentioned the need to be aware of your snaillike metabolism?  Totally unfair, I know.)  The bottom line: Be selective about when you reach for a second glass.  Special occasions and bottles that are too good to resist, only!
