Staying Younger, For Longer !

What is his secret to great health? Food is linked to how long one lives, in fact studies show that controlling the amount of food you eat extends longevity. Choice of food is very important and must be controlled in order to achieved highest life expectancy. Calorie restriction is definitely one way of keeping healthy and avoiding bad health and diseases, in fact, over-consuming protein is unhealthy too.

In fact, most essential way of keeping healthy is fasting. Scary but true, fasting is beneficial to the brain and health immunity. Essentially, this can be shown with mice experiments starting from minute 43 in the video showing how fasting can trigger new nerve cells in the brain and cognitive ability is increased. Alternate day fasting is said to be the healthiest.

Michael Mosley has set himself an ambitious goal to live longer, stay younger and lose weight too. Michael tests out the science of fasting on himself – with life-changing results.

P.S. More studies still need to be done to confirm this study (through human testing).

advise: eat at least 2000 calories, fasting must be first reviewed by your doctor.

In fact it seems that the only thing that organic foods show to be is overpriced more than anything as their benefits are not necessarily better than non-organic food types.
