Nutrition and Longevity

You may be asking yourself "What does nutrition have to do with longevity?" Well, everything! In fact, food has been considered medicine for the body for centuries. Food is a staple of life, and the food you consume contributes to the length and quality of your life.

Believe it or not, the types of food you eat actually controls your health and how you look. Staying healthy means eating healthy, eating nutritiously. It's imperative to eat foods that are nutrient rich, foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. If you eat foods loaded with fat and sugar you will probably feel sluggish and be overweight.

Balance and moderation are the keys to successful eating. It is equally important to watch your caloric intake, eat in moderation (this may mean you eat more throughout the day but in smaller amounts) and reduce the amount of fat and sugar you eat. Also, it is essential to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains and lean protein with every meal.

Food is fuel for the body and eating more nutritious food will keep your body going longer. We all want to live longer, feel better and look good and to improve our longevity we need to be more fastidious with what and how much we eat every day.

Nutrition for a healthy lifestyle!

It may seem obvious, but eating right is one of the first steps in living a healthy life. Our diet provides the nutrients and energy we need to survive, so it makes sense to eat the right foods.

Often your body will tell you what it needs. Have you ever had a craving for cookies and milk? Perhaps you body is letting you know it needs calcium. When you start feeling dried out, your body is screaming for more water.

Proper nutrition includes a balance between what is "good for you" and what "tastes good". Remember that moderation is the key on what tastes good, and eating what is good for you can lead you to feeling and looking great!
