What and how much do fit, active, seniors actually eat?

I'm the family cook, and my husband and I are both active, fit, over 65's. When I study what experts say we should be eating, it's completely out of line with what we do eat as far as calories, protein, fat, and carbs. Are there any studies of fit active seniors that track what they actually eat? You'd need to account for male/female, age, height, maybe BMI and % muscle mass, and than track their macros. The readouts from our local gym say we should be eating more calories, and way more protein, but it would be tough given how much we already eat at a meal. Most studies are focused on making changes to diet for people who have problems and don't look at people who are getting it right. Comments?
