Aging can sometimes be a strange process. Despite being happy, exercising regularly and great on the inside, your outsidelooks might notseem to reflect this. So what's the issue? It may be what you're eating. Granted, making a few changes to your diet, won't turn back the clock decades, but certain foods can improve your overall health and vitality.
Here are a few items that you may want to add to your diet:
- Beans – They're high in protein and much lower in fat than meats. If you want to keep looking young, you'll need to eat lean.
- Fish – Everyone seems to be taking fish oil supplements these days, likely because they contain omega-3 fatty acids, known to boost heart health. Research suggests that individuals who regularly consume fish tend to live longer.
- Fruits and veggies – "Antioxidants in colorful fruits and vegetables (leafy greens, red tomatoes, blueberries, carrots, etc.) help stop molecules that may damage healthy skin cells," states the website Smart Beauty Guide. "[…] There are three antioxidants in particular that can help with this process – vitamin C, zinc and beta-carotene. Make sure you're getting enough."
- Whole grains – You've probably heard plenty about the importance of eating items like oats, whole wheat and brown rice. Whole grains are rich in fiber and vitamins and minerals. Be sure that you're not eating refined grains, however, as this process often strips the foods of essential nutrients.
