Ageing well

Ageing well

How people age has everything to do with the life choices they make now - what they eat and how they view the world.

One of the simplest ways to age well is to understand that what you put into your body and mind will affect every part of your body.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Researchers state that there are about 20 longevity genes with the potential to help us live longer and healthier lives. The pathways of many of these genes respond to lifestyle habits such as what, when, and how much you eat, how you move your body, how much good sleep you get, and how much stress you endure.

Recent research suggests that we should eat more protein from plants and less from animals as we age. Younger people who are still growing need more meat and dairy.

Warning signs from your body that it is underperforming: you're achy, tired, gaining weight, and not sleeping well.

However, the right choices can radically change and even reverse some of the symptoms. Studies show that it's never too late to start new habits and experience improvements.

Growing muscle matters
  • During medical emergencies, your body needs extra protein to survive and heal, and it gets that protein from muscle tissue 
  • Muscle is the only organ you can increase to boost your metabolic rate.
  • Muscle gaining can fight two of the biggest problems with aging: muscle loss (sarcopenia) and bone loss (osteoporosis)
There is no "best diet"

The “best” diet is a theme: an emphasis on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, and plain water for thirst. 

That can be with or without seafood; with or without dairy; with or without eggs; with or without some meat; high or low in total fat.
