Habits That Reduce the Effects of Aging

Eating Right 1 of 9

One of the few unavoidable things in life is aging. We try not to think about it, but each year we have another birthday and take a step further away from youth. Luckily, physical age doesn't have to determine how old you feel. If you keep up these healthy habits, you'll feel great even when you're old and gray.

The first habit that reduces the effects of aging is eating healthy. The importance of proper nutrition cannot be understated, and making these changes can add years to your lifespan:

  • Eat uncooked fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat more berries and nuts.
  • Eat less processed food.
  • Avoid corn syrup.
  • Lower your caloric intake.
