We all want to stay looking and feeling as young as we can for as long as possible. Whether this is for superficial reasons of practical ones, enabling you to enjoy the activities you love for longer doesn’t matter. What matters is the way in which we achieve this goal. While there are thousands of anti aging products on the market to prevent aging, many people tend to forget that their diet will be the foundation of this problem in the first place. In this very short article I am going to be looking at 4 common foods that will be causing you to age prematurely. Lets take a look:

– Wheat: Despite what foods companies love to tell us, can be massively damaging, and this includes whole wheat as well. In simple terms, wheat contains a carbohydrate called Amylopectin-A and this basically causes a huge spike in blood glucose levels. In fact, this spike is even greater than when you eat pure table sugar, which is basically pure glucose! These regular spikes lead to, among other issues, accelerated aging.

– Corn products: Include things like corn cereal, corn syrup, corn chips and corn oil. These products contain HFCS, which stands for high fructose corn syrup and, once more, this has a very negative impact on our blood sugar levels. Aside from this HFCS also contains high quantities of omega 6 fatty acids, which cause an imbalance of omega 3’s and omega 6’s in the body. This imbalance leads to inflammation, which in turn leads to aging.

– Sugar products: Naturally, sugar and sugary goods are going to impact your blood sugar levels in a negative way. As we have seen, this leads to aging, so anything high in sugar, when eaten regularly, is going to cause accelerated aging. This also included starchy products like white rice and white potatoes as well.

– Vegetable oils: To be avoided include oils like canola, cottonseed, corn, soybean and so on. Now, these oils go through a refining process which essentially makes the ployunsaturated fats within the oil become excessively inflammatory inside of the body. In turn, this leads to the formation of free radicals which damage the cell membranes. This cause aging as well as various different health concerns.

If you are keen on avoiding the onset of early aging, therefore, you need to look at your diet as the foundation of this problem. Removing these 4 foods types will help you to look and feel 5 to 10 years younger, while at the same time helping you to lose weight and prevent the development of various health issues like heart disease. Its a win win really! (By Toby Edge)
