How to reverse the loss of muscle mass associated with aging nutritionnews.abbott
“..Starting at age 40, adults can lose up to 8 percent of their muscle mass per decade; that rate can accelerate to 15 percent per decade starting at about age 70. That is alarming when you think about it. But don’t get frustrated — you can reverse the trend.
That’s why exercise is so important, especially if you are feeling fatigued. Regular exercise can increase energy levels while also increasing strength, which is all the more reason to start now on forming habits that prevent more muscle loss..
Exercise: Increase resistance exercise, such as weight lifting, body weight exercises and using resistance bands or tubes. Check out local fitness classes—Pilates, barre, aerobics with strength training and water resistance classes are all choices. Make it fun and get your friends involved, too.
Don’t forget muscle-friendly foods: Make sure you work in nutrients such as protein and essential amino acids, such as HMB and leucine. HMB, or β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate, is an amino acid metabolite that occurs naturally in muscle and is found in small amounts in some foods, such as avocado, grapefruit and catfish. Also, make sure you have adequate intakes of vitamin D, which can help support muscle health.

“2. Increase Overall Dietary Protein
Protein is the most valuable food for repairing and building muscle fibers. Studies show that 12 percent of men and 24 percent of women over age 70 eat significantly less than the recommended 0.8 gram of protein per kilogram of their body weight each day. ..
3. Choose Protein Wisely
..The amino acid leucine has been shown to preserve body muscle. Leucine is an essential amino acid, which means our bodies cannot produce it, so we must get it from dietary sources…
Leucine is found in higher amounts in animal foods, including beef, lamb, poultry, fish, eggs, milk and products made with milk. It’s also found in soybeans and, to a lesser extent, other beans, nuts and seeds. Of course, I always recommended choosing the best quality of these food items.
The best protein foods to include in your diet are the following:
Whey protein (organic, ideally from raw goat milk)
Wild-caught fish (salmon..
…, mackerel, tuna, etc.)
Black beans (or other beans)
Kefir or yogurt
