An anti aging diet should consist of three different components. If you focus on these three as your base, you’ll be on your way to looking younger and feeling younger.
First you should eliminate all the “bad fats” from your diet. These are such a huge contributor to aging it isn’t even funny. On top of that they contribute to having low energy and even sickness and disease. Bad fats are that which contain high amounts of saturated fats. Generally these are the foods you pretty much know you should stay away from: fried foods, greasy foods, much of what is considered junk foods and fast foods.
On the other hand, there are “good fats” which you can, and should, consume in moderation. These fats are actually healthy for you, and don’t contribute to disease as do the bad fats. These good fats are such things as olive oils, avocados, and fish oils.
2. Antioxidant Foods.
Antioxidant foods are huge in a anti aging diet. They essentially prevent heart disease as well as cancer, reduce blood pressure and slow the effects of aging.
Let’s get right to it. Here are some antioxidant foods which you will definitely want to include in your anti aging diet:
Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, broccoli, tomatoes, garlic, spinach, green tea and carrots.
There are more, but these are some of the common foods which are heavyweights in the antioxidant department.
3. Raw Vegetables.
This is another big one. Consuming your vegetables in the raw form, uncooked, will hold in all the anti aging qualities you are looking for. When you cook you veges, you unfortunately cook out some of the anti aging benefits.
The good news is there are actual raw vegetable restaurants opening up which prove you can have delicious meals with raw veges. There are also online guides available which will provide great recipes for an all around anti aging diet rich in antioxidants, healthy fats, and raw veges.
