    The article reviewed focuses on healthy eating, rather than dieting, as a means for keeping excess weight off. The article is related to the health and well being of seniors, because additional weight is more difficult to lose as we age and can lead to serious health problems. The article is designed to provide facts in a manner that related to the average older person. It avoids use of medical terminology and is presented in a manner that is easy to read. Several smaller paragraphs and numbered points of discussion make it easier to follow the text. In addition, the site offers tables for readers to determine their ideal body weights.

    The site provides justification for avoiding fad diets. It explains that not eating or extremely limiting caloric intake lead to a slower metabolism, which in turn burns calories more slowly (MySeniorHealthCare.com, 2009). The information is also encouraging to seniors. It explains that body image should focus on acceptance rather than despair. It encourages readers to accept that they will not look like movie stars and should focus on improving health above all else. The article is presented on the page with no distracting graphics and limited advertising. The text is formatted in a wide column down the center of the page, so it cannot be missed. Tabs to several related topics on aging are provided in a side bar. Overall, the article is straightforward and presented in a simple manner.
