Want to live to over 100 – and feel energetic and clear in the mind? Me too! I went on a 2 year intensive research quest to write a longevity book – and here are the #1 best foods to help you to live longer, healthier, younger!
First of all, hi! That’s me on the left! I’m 58 years young – and eager to be part of what I call The Wellderly – folks who as they continue to age do not feel or act their age!
So far, so good. My doctor told me I have the “blood work” of someone 20 years younger!
It’s not by accident! I’m presently doing the habits of centenarians – people who live to 100+.
One of the consistent centenarian research findings:
One Harvard study in particular revealed that people who eat a higher amount of plant-derived protein have a lower rate of mortality than meat eaters.
(Note: This Harvard study was the largest of its kind and involved over 131,000 participants who were assessed over a period of 32 years.)
In fact, lately there have been a few studies which support that people tend to live far longer if they swapped out their animal protein (especially processed red meat) in trade for plant protein.
Plus, eating plants instead of meat has been shown to be specifically beneficial in staving off cardiovascular disease.
Happily there are a wide range of powerful plant proteins to choose from.
chia, hemp, sunflower, flax and pumpkin seeds. Each is packed with protein and makes an easy addition to any smoothie or salad bowl.
brazil nuts, walnuts and cashews.
dark leafy greens, avocado and grains such as millet and quinoa.
Spirulina! It’s a blue-green algae that contains all the essential amino acids – and can be added directly to juice or water.
For example, obviously you don’t want to smoke and don’t want to overdo alcohol intake.
Plus, it’s also equally important to stay physically fit and active!
You should avoid eating too much processed foods – which are loaded up with chemicals and preservatives.
Here are 2 funny things I tell my son (Ari) about the dangers of processed foods:
Want to live to 100 – and feel 30-ish? Me too! In my longevity book “Life Is Long“ I share the secrets of people who live to 100 – with greater health, clarity and energy! Thanks to the research and tools in “Life Is Long” my doctor told me that age 58 I have the blood work of someone 20 years younger! Check out “Life Is Long” and start protecting yourself against age-related diseases and dementia.
