In working your way through your Divorce Over 50, there will almost certainly be times when you’re unhappy, stressed, and feeling low. And that’s why a meal like the one pictured above can be exactly what you need.
But, because you know it’s vitally important to maintain your health as you move toward your brighter future, you recognize that a Triple-Triple and fries should be a real rarity. And that for the vast majority of meals you need to eat smart.
If you’re still looking for a New Years resolution that will pay off big time, how about becoming a “Superager”?

There’s a catch, though: It takes hard work, and you’ve got to push yourself through some pain.

Perhaps they run, cycle, take a class, use the machines at the gym, or a combination of those methods.
