Anti-aging diets are increasingly popular in the media currently. What exactly is an anti-aging diet and what does it do for me are two questions I commonly hear when this topic comes up. This article will answer those questions and explain how an online dietician and an online personal trainer can be invaluable in helping you stay on your anti-aging diet.
First, an anti-aging diet is a lifestyle of dietary habits that help you feel younger and healthier. These dietary habits include restricting your calories (not starvation) and drinking room temperature purified water daily. Another part of the diet is eating low glycemic index complex carbohydrates daily. Don’t know which food these are? This is a perfect reason to hire an online dietician who can help guide you in your food choices. Also, the online dietician can help you determine a beneficial caloric intake for your height and weight.
A major principle of an anti-aging diet is eating plenty of green leafy vegetables and low glycemic index whole fruits daily. Choose organic vegetables and whole fruits whenever possible. Local farmer’s markets are excellent places to find organics.
Adding beans, legumes, organic eggs, fats olive oil and fish and poultry daily are an important part of the lifestyle. Consuming fish and poultry twice per week is generally part of the diet. Lean red meats and sweets are eaten once per week or less.
What do these lifestyle behaviors do for you? They aid in oxidative stress, help you detox, and help maintain your sugar or glucose balance. All of these things prolong your life helping you feel younger and healthier.
Remember, as part of the anti-aging diet, exercise is always recommended. One of Live’s online personal trainers is just the help you need to stay on track with your anti-aging diet and become a better you in 2007!
