Our diet has never been more complicated.

Naturally Healthy

Eat this.
Don’t eat this.
Eat this, but not too much of it.

And as we get older, we change. Our nutritional needs change, our metabolism changes, our physical bodies - you guessed it - change! This further complicates life. Few of us say they can eat and do the same things as when they were teenagers.
So we created this guide full of research-backed information and easy-to-digest (pun totally intended) summary bullet points to help you understand your body’s needs as you get older. This guide isn’t about perfect eating, living off a diet of kale smoothies or scrutinising every morsel consumed - this guide is to empower you with knowledge - so you can live your life to the fullest.
We start with a basic breakdown of the 3 macronutrients and follow on through each decade of your life - so you can enjoy and flourish during each one.
We open a conversation between two experts in their field - who provides us insight into how we can maximise our health at every age.
And, we provide pro tips on what types of exercise and movement will serve you best at your particular age and stage.
Growing older is inevitable but, ageing can be slowed and enjoyed with a few tricks and tips to keep you feeling Pro You. It’s never too late to start looking after you, your mind and your body.
Happy thriving.

Why Welfare Fails

Paul from Pukete

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
