Dr. Jonny Bowden knows how tough getting and staying healthy at any age can be, and that those over forty can particularly struggle. Bowden is a health mythbuster and has some great tips for staying healthy this year.

Stop being afraid of fat! Good fats like those found in nut butters, egg yolks, and avocado are an essential part of a healthy diet.

Most adults don't get the amount of fiber they need. The recommended daily amount is 25-38 grams, and most adults only get 6-11 grams daily. In addition to a high fiber diet, Dr. Bowden suggests a fiber supplement.

Use the right oils! Vegetable oils can inflame the body and be detrimental to health. Switch to healthier alternatives like coconut or olive oil.
