Eat less, age better.
The easiest way to ad a few years to your life is to eat less. The reason is fairly simple. Food is foreign to your body. Much like the engine of a car that runs gasoline and by doing so creates wear and tear,the simple act of eating creates wear and tear on yourbody. Eating less slows the rate of wear and tear.
Whole Foods and aging.
New research indicates rich foods deactivate the bodies controls over food intake, resulting in runaway eating patterns.
Whole food behaves differently. With whole food, the bodies natural controls over energy intake kick in to tell you to stop eating.
Rich food is also associated with a condition known as post-prandial dysmetabolism, essentially an accelerated state of cellular oxidation (aging) after eating.
When you consider the effect rich food has on eating behavior and cellular oxidation, it's clear that rich food clearly promotes a shorter lifes span.
For both longevity and weight loss, whole foods, that is foods that are minimally processed will aid to you eat less and live longer.
