This book explores the lifestyle and health choices of older British Pakistanis (49+) living in the City of Bradford through examining dietary habits and physical exercise among this group. This issue was explored through conducting qualitative research through in-depth interview and presented in a rich qualitative method. This research allows the reader to understand about the dietary habits among older Pakistanis, how they make their food choices; how much they understand about the food they purchase. Also the ways in which their diet has changed over time and the influence of British cuisine. We learn for example that migration has had a major impact on the dietary habits of older Pakistanis. We are also in better position to understand attitudes of older Pakistanis towards physical activity and recreation including the frequency of physical activity; differences among men and women; the way they organize physical activity around their daily lives, work and family. This book fulfils an important health knowledge gap.

This book will be an invaluable book among academics, health researchers as well as lay people who wish to learn about the Pakistan community in a particular context.
