She emphasized that the amount of saturated fat in their diet should be extremely minimal, even to the point of completely eliminating certain foods.

“No lard, mixed and heavy dishes, confectionery products in the form of pastries and cakes.”
Also, in old age, you should exclude everything spicy from your diet. Food in general should be gentle, ready-made dishes should only be eaten stewed, baked or boiled – no fried foods!
