Diet and Nutrition Tips to Keep You Looking and Feeling Good!

Written by Jeff Behar, MS. MBA   

There will hardly be any one on this earth who wants to look old. In fact, almost every one of us wants to look young and feel youngyoung woman throughout his/ her life. However, time is relentless and you tend to get older every year. When it comes to looking and feeling younger, there is no need to go extremes. All you need to do is to inculcate few tricks in your routine. There are some diet, nutrition and lifestyle tips that, if followed religiously, can make you look younger than your age, feel younger than your age and also much more healthier too! In this article I will focus on the diet and nutrition aspect of anti-aging.

Nutrition Tips for a Healthy Life 
  • Nutrition is one of the greatest weapons against disease. Eat light and eat often
  • Stay slim. The biggest health problem facing Americans today is obesity. More than half of us are over our ideal weight and more than one-third are obese enough to significantly raise the risk of disease and premature death.
  • Eat a heart healthy diet with fiber, fruits, vegetables, nuts, good fats, and minimal sugar and process foods.
  • Increase your fruit and vegetable consumption. Eating five servings a day of fruit and vegetables lowers your chances of getting cancer. And a recent study found that eating nine to ten daily servings of fruit and vegetables along with three servings low-fat dairy products is as effective as medication in lowering high blood pressure, and can help reduce or eliminate your chances of stroke.
  • Eating 5-10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day helps optimize anti-oxidant consumption.
  • Choose color for your vitamins and nutrients
  • For maximum longevity, limit fats to 30% or less. Keeping fats below 30% and cholesterol intake below 200 mg will markedly cut your risk of heart disease.  
  • Add fish to your diet, fish contains heart healthy good fats.
  • Increase your consumption of grains, sunflower seeds, tuna, swordfish, and garlic to get anti-aging selenium into your diet!
  • Beware the poisonous fat. Avoid trans fats, limit saturated fats.
  • Cut down on carbs and sweets and reduce your risk to diabetes, obesity and increase your natural HgH.
  • Reduce your intake of processed foods.
  • Minimize consumption of alcohol; avoid salad dressings, margarines, and other foods high in soybean oil.
  • Increase your fiber. Increasing fiber has shown to decrease the risk of several types of cancer and helps the body pass toxins quicker.
Supplement Tips  
  • Supplement with a high quality, high potency multivitamin/ antioxidant nutriceutical. A good multi-vitamin and anti-oxidant is important for good health since so many foods today are now processed and devoid of the basic vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function optimally.

Eight Simple Tips to Increase Your Energy Levels

Written by Jeff Behar, MS, MBA   

In today's hustle bustle world many people are constantly on the go. As a result increase-energy-levelsnutrition often takes a back seat to what needs to get done for the day and this often results in lower energy levels. Additionally 2 out of 3 adults do not get enough sleep.

This combination of poor nutrition and not enough sleep negatively impacts energy levels resulting in lethargy, lower productivity, irritability, relationships issues, increased risk for disease and a lower quality of life. The following tips should help increase your energy levels naturally and get you back on track to wellness.

Limit sugar and caffeine intake: Might sound bizarre but sugar and caffeine give you instant energy, but a few hours later, and in the long term, they will only make you more tired. Sugar, fructose corn syrup, and caffeine weaken your adrenal glands, which in turn are responsible for your energy levels. So, by consuming sugar and caffeine, you are weakening your body’s natural energy system. You must wean yourself off of these!

Try having one cup of green tea instead, and if you must sweeten your food or beverage, try using natural sweetners.Consider taking nutritional supplements. Eating a "perfect" diet does not give us enough key nutrients, such as Carnitine, CoQ10, magnesium, B-complex, and Omega 3s, for optimal energy levels. Taking supplements is necessary to ensure adequate amounts in your system and to cover any deficiencies. On my site you can see in more detail what each nutrient provides.Make sure you do not have any medical conditions that can cause fatigue. These include low thyroid function, low iron, high iron (hemochromatosis), and a range of other ailments which can be determined by blood tests.

Maintain emotional stability; limit stress. This is important to avoid sleepless nights, which stresses the body. Our emotional health is important in order to avoid the stress and worry that often leads to reduced sleep quality, and affect our energy each day.Don't work too much. If you work long hours and have a stressful job, make sure to schedule leisure activity on the weekends rather than more work.

Change your afternoon snack. By the time 3, or 4:00 rolls around, your lunch has probably worn off and you're ready for your afternoon snack. Instead of reaching for a Red Bull, a soda, or a candy bar, try replacing these with a complex carbohydrate snack or more protein.  A snack low on the glycemic index (for more about the glycemic index, and to see a long list of the glycemic content of various foods, check out the nutrition section, and diet tools area at Sugary snacks produce an instant rush and increase in blood sugar, supplying you with more energy. However, this affect is short lived and as your blood sugar levels come back down, the result is a feeling of extreme tiredness. Try add...
