Third Age Learning Niagara (TALN) is a not-for-profit organization, offering a unique opportunity for people over the age of 55 in Niagara to learn about topics that are interesting to them, in an engaging and exciting way.

Navigating the world of nutrition, exercise and healthful living can be difficult with the overwhelming amount of information being thrown at us. This talk will touch on some popular current diets such as the ketogenic, intermittent fasting, paleo and gluten-free. Danielle will also explore metabolism changes with age and how to navigate prevention of diet-related illnesses: keeping the heart, mind, and body healthy into the golden years!
