Even if people may claim they don’t mind aging, it’s likely far from the truth. Aging takes a toll on our energy, skin, and can lead to health problems from diabetes to, at worst,cancer. Before long, our bad eating habits can start catching up with us and unfortunately can lead to irreversible consequences.
However, there’s a way to counteract bad eating and life habits, by implementing a positive diet, low in carbohydrates. If we eat the right type of foods we can actually slow the aging process and prevent health problems, which is what everyone desires to do. What type of foods can we eat that’ll activate genes and protect cells from the effects of aging? Keep reading:
“As we age, our bodies become less efficient at removing free radicals. While βOHB is toxic at high levels—such as with Type I diabetes—low levels of this compound contribute to slowing the aging process.
How it does that, however, has been “elusive” until now, according to Dr. Verdin of the University of California, San Francisco, and director of the Center for HIV & Aging at Gladstone. “Here, we find that βOHB—the body’s major source of energy during exercise or fasting—blocks a class of enzymes that would otherwise promote oxidative stress, thus protecting cells from aging.”
Admittedly, a functional ketogenic diet requires rigor, vigilance, and oftentimes professional guidance. Because ketones are formed when fat is the primary supply of calories, the ketogenic diet is high in healthy fats like omega 3s, found in oily fish, flax seeds, and walnuts. Avocados are also known to naturally conquer aging and disease with their healthy fats and antioxidants.”
Even if we’re not a fan of aging, there’s hope thanks to the keto diet and implementing a low-carb/high-fat lifestyle. We can do this by coming up with recipes that consist of healthy fats and a balance of omega 3 and omega 6 oils. This means we should be eating plenty of fish, flax seeds, avocados, and the like. Don’t forget about seafood and other meats and healthy fats as well.
