EATING RIGHT IS THE KEY TO BEATING AGING

You are what you eat, and what you eat may also affect how old you look. Research suggests that a poor diet may not only be bad for your hips and your heart, but also your face. Good Nutrition is the way to slow down the aging process. The best choices are to have a diet that is rich in raw vegetables, seeds, fresh fruit, grains, nuts, and low fat proteins. It is important to have a diet that is rich in anti-oxidants, as the degeneration of cells through the accumulation of oxidants together with the passage of time is the pathway to aging. Eating foods which are rich in antioxidants will help reduce the oxidative stress and inflammation in your body, which ages you before your time. Oxidative stress causes damage to cell membranes, your DNA, and to Elastin and Collagen, these two proteins give your skin elasticity and structure.

Raw foods are the best choice as they contain far more anti-oxidants and other nutrients that are often lost in the cooking process.

LOWER YOUR CALORIE INTAKE

Another factor is that you do not need as many calories as you age and decreasing your calorie intake is a step in the right direction, as well as maintaining your Bodies Healthy Goal Weight assists in the anti-aging process. Some of the best foods that are rich in nutrients but are low in calories include cabbage, broccoli, fruit, cauliflower and oats. It is also a good idea to make sure that you have a high amount of fibre in your regular diet.

A diet rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin E and C, Lycopene, Green Tea, Beta Carotene, and cocoa flavanols has been shown to offer some protection from the aging factors caused by ultraviolet light. (This is also according to the American Academy of Dermatology).

Diets high in antioxidants and rich in whole grains and good fats, such as linoleic acid, and which are lower in refined carbohydrates and added sugars, have been shown to be associated with better skin-aging appearance.

Here is a list of foods that help the fight against aging:

Anti- aging compound     

Vitamin C  –              Red & green peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, tomatoes,                                                        citrus fruits

Many other foods have anti-aging effects on your body, such as Onions, Mushrooms and Barley, to mention a few.

Garlic is regarded as a secret anti-aging food when it comes to health, because it has so many health benefits. Garlic helps you naturally to boost your Immune system, knowing as much as you can about general health and nutrition will ultimately help you with your anti-aging nutrition. It is always better to use fresh garlic rather than processed paste as a lot of nutrients can get lost in the processing.

Body Sculpt Doc Meal Plans include all the anti-aging foods in the correct macronutrient ratios, calculated at the correct kilojoules specifically for you, to ensure that you achieve a Healthy body for Life. We also advise you on the necessary anti-aging supplementation.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER

One of the best things you can do for your health and your skin is drink plenty of filtered water throughout the day, every day. The recommended daily amount of water is at least eight glasses per day. Remember, you should be drinking water, even when you are not thirsty. Water assists in detoxifying the body. If you don’t like the taste of water try adding a squeeze of fresh lemon, which is not only refreshing but is also very good for you.

We age from the inside out therefore dehydration can accelerate this aging process.

OTHER ANTI-AGING FOOD FACTS

Avoid foods as much as possible, that contain white flour, chemical additives, white sugar as well as caffeine, tobacco and alcohol. The reason why you should avoid these is because they cause you to become dehydrated, which causes your skin to wrinkle.

NUTRIENTS TO SLOW DOWN AGING PROCESS

Commonly known as antioxidants Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Vitamin C and Vitamin E are the nutrients to slow aging. Along with these antioxidants, Vitamin B12 is another of the best secrets of anti-aging nutrition. Supplementation of these Vitamins can also be highly beneficial for anti-aging.

EXERCISE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SLOW DOWN AGING

It is also important to remember that diet cannot magically keep you young and that you are going to have to exercise and work at keeping your body looking young as well.

Exercise does not need to be strenuous but it is a great idea to include low impact cardiovascular exercises, and resistance weight training. As well as some stretching as part of your weekly routine.

Yoga is also a great choice for a lot of people, and it is one of the best ways to not only stretch your body, but also to be able to tone your muscles, joints and tendons.

REDUCE STRESS & GOOD SLEEP

To slow down the aging process it is important to reduce stress and to also get good restful sleep, so that your body can repair itself and rejuvenate it’s cells. Sleep also helps to keep your stress hormones under control.

Nutrition and wellness are huge concerns for a lot of people. When you choose to eat healthy, the biggest difference that you will see is that you start to feel better in all areas of your life. Not only will you feel healthier, but you will actually start to look better as well, which I think is something that we all want to experience.

UNDERSTANDING THE HUGE DIFFERENCE THAT CELLULAR NUTRITION CAN MAKE IN YOUR LIFE (LONGEVITY)

Your body is one of the most complex structures in the universe. It is constantly replacing billions of cells from head to toe. This astonishingly DNA programed, bio chemical production line requires good quality components.

Understanding how cellular nutrition can work for you is very important to increase longevity. This is because when you choose to eat the right vitamins and herbs, you will find that your body begins to naturally detoxify and cleanse itself and cells become nourished.

Detoxifying your body is very important, the fact is that without detoxification it can eventually become impossible for your body to absorb the needed vitamins and minerals from the foods that you are eating.

Our bodies are exposed to a variety of impurities and toxins daily. Once your body has had so much exposure to toxins, it is not going to be able to absorb the nutrients that it needs. If you are feeling sluggish or overly tired, more likely than not, detoxing could make a world of difference to the way you feel and to your bodies health.

IMPROVING THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH CELLULAR NUTRITION

The digestive system can be drastically improved with cellular nutrition and wellness too. When the cells are well nourished the villi will continue to absorb nutrients but when the villi are not nourished well enough, there is a good change that they could become damaged and flattened. Which means that they are not going to absorb anything that passes through them.

During the detox phase, the villi will actually start to remove toxins from your body, making it quickly possible for nutrients to be absorbed.

One of the things that you should consider is the more likely they are to cause disease. As your body fights off these toxins it eventually gets to a point where it is no longer able to fight them off. This is when healthy choices for nutrition and wellness come into play.

It is important to note that you can get toxins into the body through impurities such as those found in:

  •    In Air and in water
  •    Preservatives in foods
  •    Artificial colourants and flavourants in foods
  •    Insecticides that are sprayed on crops
  •    Foods that are genetically modified
  •    Eating too much Sugar
  •    Smoking
  •    Drinking too much alcohol
  •    Cosmetics and Toiletries

Finally too many people ignore the conditions by which our food is currently grown. If soil quality is not that high, it is likely that the products (foods) that are produced from the soil are not going to be that high in quality as well.

Remember ultimately it is your body and you only have this one, so it is up to you what you choose to put into it, look after your body by feeding it the correct nutrition.
