If you want to live a long, healthy life, follow these simple tips
When it comes to health and longevity, there are no quick fixes or “fountain of youth” that will help you get healthy overnight. Getting fit and healthy to reach old age takes effort and attention – this is something I tell my readers over and over.
But here’s the good news: There are a few simple lifestyle changes you can make to not only improve your body. amount, but also the quality of your years. These changes are pretty basic, but can have a profound effect on your overall health once implemented.
Healthy eating is essential for longevity
One of the most basic health principles (and, unfortunately, the one that people most often ignore) is to eat whole, nutritious foods rather than unhealthy processed foods. Keep in mind that processed and junk foods are high in grains, sugar, and unhealthy calories which increase your insulin levels, which not only speeds up the aging process but also increases your risk for obesity and obesity. chronic diseases.
I also strongly advise against consuming genetically modified (GE) foods. Not only are genetically engineered foods less nutritious than organic foods, they also pose a number of health risks. In fact, most processed foods today contain genetically modified ingredients – regardless of the fact that these genetically modified components have not been the subject of long-term safety studies.
The best diet I would recommend for optimal health and longevity is one that focuses on whole, unprocessed foods – preferably organic vegetables, grass-fed meats, raw dairy, and nuts – obtained from healthy and sustainable local sources. I also recommend consuming a good portion of your food raw, as well as adding naturally fermented foods to meals.
By implementing these basic dietary changes, you can take a big step towards longevity and optimal health.
For more useful healthy eating tips, I advise you to follow the Mercola Nutrition Plan, which will guide you in choosing the right foods that will suit your unique biological makeup. The Mercola Nutrition Plan addresses your unique biochemical needs based on your specific genetics, allowing you to heal your health issues at the fundamental level and providing you with a more permanent solution to regain your health.
Another risk factor for early death: living a sedentary life
Physical activity is just as important to having a healthy diet. According to studies, sedentary people have a shorter lifespan. In fact, research shows that reducing the average time you spend sitting down to less than three hours a day can increase your life expectancy by two years, and reduce the time you spend watching TV to less than two hours a day. could increase it by 1.4 years.
I understand how difficult it is to avoid sitting for long periods of time, as computer work is so prevalent today. Even I am guilty of spending much of my day sitting down. But to compensate for this, I make sure I get enough exercise daily. I also take frequent breaks every hour to get up at my desk. I highly recommend Foundation exercises, developed by chiropractor Dr. Eric Goodman, as well as high intensity short burst exercises, like Peak Fitness. You can learn more about these techniques by subscribing to Mercola daily newsletter.
Exercise also has anti-aging effects, as many studies have proven. A study published in the American Journal of Physiology says exercise triggers mitochondrial biogenesis, a decline of which is common with aging. This means that exercise can reverse significant declines in age-related mitochondrial mass and, in fact, stop aging.
