The anti-aging diet is a low-calorie diet that helps you to cut your calories, and still obtain your essential nutrients. In order to do this you have to cut out all empty calorie foods, such as processed and refined foods, foods high in sugar, and fried foods. Then you simply replace these foods with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, fish and nuts.
The Cause of Aging and Weight Gain
The anti-aging diet was designed to help you live a longer and healthier life, but at the same time it will also help you to lose weight if you are overweight. This is because a lot of the foods which cause you to age, also cause you to gain weight, and prevent you from losing weight. These are foods that are high in toxins, chemicals, and other ingredients that are foreign to the body.
The toxins are a burden to the body which prevents it from getting adequate rest, and as a result the cells begin to die off, thus causing you to age. On top of that, your body cannot eliminate the toxins without first neutralizing them, as they are poisonous and would harm your eliminating organs. Therefore, in order to protect you from them, your body safely stores those toxins in fat cells, away from your organs so they can continue to operate. If this process continues, it will ultimately result in unwanted weight gain and aging.
How Effective is the Anti-Aging Diet?
The diet helps you to stay away from toxic foods and replace them with healthy foods which immediately begin to neutralize the toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body. Therefore you can begin to lose weight almost immediately.
The anti-aging diet also helps you to reduce your calorie intake by 30 to 50 percent over a period of 1 to 2 years. This helps your body to slowly adjust to the lower amount of calories without any harmful side effects. The average individual on the Standard American diet consumes between 2000 to 3000 calories per day. The anti-aging diet helps you to reduce and maintain your calorie intake between 1500 and 2000 a day.
A woman who is 5-foot-6, and weighs 120 pounds is expected to lose up to 12 pounds in 6 months. This equals 10 percent of her body weight. So naturally the more you have to lose, the more you will lose.
Reducing your calories more rapidly than what your body is ready for may result in negative side effects. These include severe hunger, binging, obsessions with food, unhealthy and rapid weight loss, headaches and other health problems. To avoid these you should gradually reduce your calories so that your body is able to adapt to the anti-aging diet.
If you are pregnant or nursing you should not go on the anti-aging diet, as you will need the extra calories to nourish your baby. The diet is also not recommended for children or teenagers, as they need plenty of calories so that their bodies can grow and develop properly. If you have a medical condition you should check with your doctor before starting the anti-aging diet.
