Most people die of disease, not old age. The rate of heart attacks, Type II diabetes, obesity, strokes, and chronic disease in this country just keeps climbing.
Many of the leading causes of death can be directly related to poor dietary choices. Fortunately, all of these conditions can be greatly improved by positive dietary changes.
There are many factors as to why some people age faster than others. For example, our hormone levels (HGH, testosterone, DHEA, estrogen/progesterone, cortisol) can decline or change as we age. This contributes to a more rapid onset of “aging” symptoms.
Poor dietary habits are among one of the major factors which can contribute to accelerated aging in humans. For example, high-glycemic, carbohydrate intake(carbohydrates that cause a high increase in blood insulin levels) increase fat storage (lipo-genesis), accelerate atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and promote the glycosylation of proteins (when carbohydrates stick to proteins hindering the production and utilization of hormones, muscle building and repair, and immune function).
This ultimately leads to accelerated again and poor health. A nutritional program designed to keep blood sugar low is crucial for the management of insulin.
A nutritional program designed to keep blood sugar low is crucial for the management of insulin. Implementing a diet in which food intake consists of low glycemic carbohydrates helps the body burn fat (lipolysis), reduces atherosclerosis and decelerates the aging process.
In addition, by consistently eating a diet high in phytonutrients (plant nutrients), essential fats, lean protein and fiber we can provide our body with all the tools it needs to fight off foreign invaders, repair tissues and maintain a state of optimal health.
