What should an Antiaging Diet Do?
Starvation. Skinny models. Stomach pain. Does the term 'Antiaging Diet' conjure up better thoughts than those I listed when we think of 'Diet'? Most of us associate Diet with quick weight loss plans. And although we have articles (that we hope you'll contribute to) answering the question 'how can I lose weight?', a antiaging diet must do more, much more.
A good diet should change the way you eat for two purposes. To live longer and to improve your quality of life. That is why we address this issue at AgelessFx.
Remember, we want you to Look Better - Feel Better - Do More!
And you won't be able to do that if your goal of a diet is to be starving with stomach pains can it? With a good antiaging diet you will lower your caloric intake (lose weight), Eat healthier (reduce disease) and Assist your body with supplements (better quality of life). Let's get started...
Living Longer Through Caloric Reduction
Scientists and researchers have been studying the effects of caloric reduction in animals for years. But serious study has been reported on the effects in people of reducing calories by 20-30 percent of what is needed to maintain their current weight with amazing results. So far. lifespan increases of up to 30% have been seen in animals. And, some of the same test traits are showing up in the human test groups.
Like the animals, human core body temperature was reduced and so was insulin which is associated with longer life. In addition, a reduction in DNA damage in their blood cells was confirmed. Researchers say that some of the chemical by-products of food metabolism attack our DNA, that could contribute to cancer and accelerate the pace of aging.
I'm not one to stick to any diet plan. I prefer the next option for an antiaging diet, but for plans and tips on losing weight, you can read "How can I lose weight?. And see the list of articles below...
Can't Do a Diet Plan?
Try A Healthy Eating Plan
I don't count calories. Bad, I know. With so many free internet tools and apps you'd think everyone should be doing it now. I prefer to substitute my meals with food that I know will be better for me.. and I rarely "Pig Out" anymore. So I get my caloric reduction by not eating as big a meals as I used to, and I know that what I'm eating is helping me nourish my skin and body. Let's review an example then I'll let you add your menu ideas so we can share...
A study of women with higher intakes of vitamin C also had fewer wrinkles and less dry skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can eliminate free radicals, molecules in your body that harm cells. Add an orange for breakfast and make a salad for lunch with yellow pepper and broccoli.
"Protein provides the building blocks of collagen," says F. William Danby, M.D., adjunct assistant professor of surgery (dermatology) at Dartmouth Medical School. When collagen and other proteins break down, wrinkles and lines form. Your skin will make collagen by eating skinless poultry, egg whites, and fish.
Eating omega-3 fatty acids, may help guard against sun damage. Eat seafood such as salmon and tuna (albacore),mackerel, herring, sardines, and lake trout. And to add to that lunch salad try walnuts, flaxseeds, canola oil, pumpkin seeds. Place a cup of spinach in that salad for increased antioxidants.
Replace the white rice, white-flour breads and cakes, with whole grains. I found this out when a blood test revealed I had high levels of insulin. Changing immediately reduced it.
Finally, drinking Green Tea as it is rich in polyphenols, antioxidants that are also anti-inflammatory.
Assist Your Body With Supplements
We simply live in a society that just doesn't allow us to do all the right healthy eating habits all the time. And, some of the foods we end up eating or are slipped into our antiaging diet is processed. We can help our bodies by the addition of diet supplements that increase our chances for weight loss success and insure that we nourish our bodies with vitamins.
Falling levels of a hormone called leptin that helps the brain resist tempting foods may explain why people who lose weight often have a hard time keeping it off, U.S. researchers say. Restoring leptin to pre-diet levels may reverse this problem, they said, offering a way for weary dieters to finally win the weight battle.
Replacing missed or low levels of required vitamins and minerals helps our bodies replenish and restore. Because we need to nourish our bodies inside as well as out, we've created an entire section on anti aging supplement for you.
