I am 61 years old or young, depending how you look at it. Some clients think I am lucky because I don’t take any medication or see a doctor for any ongoing long term condition, but I have to disagree. Lucky is winning the lottery; good health at 61 is the result of paying attention to good nutrition, adequate sleep and proper exercise. In fact, genes only play a small part in overall health and genes are turned off and on depending on many lifestyle factors.
Researchers are finding that there are a few key lifestyle factors important in preventing disease and extending life:
– Don’t smoke or drink excess alcohol
– Eat lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds and legumes.
– Avoid saturated fat and processed food.
– Maintain a healthy weight.
– Strive for 150 minutes of exercise per week.
Making these lifestyle changes are not easy, but I can suggest small changes that will dramatically improve your health and yield big results over the course of a few months. Even disease processes such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s can be reversed by changes in diet and lifestyle.
