Believe it or not the foods we eat and the drinks we drink can have a detrimental effect on how quickly we age. Our bodies require a healthy balanced diet and if it doesn’t receive this it will start to show!

Our bodies require a healthy balance offats. Along with supporting the brain, heart and immune functions, fat is essential for the maintenance of healthy cell membranes in our body cells. This membrane has the sole responsibility for transporting nutrients and removing waste in and out of body cells – a very important role!
An interesting fact is that all natural fat associated with food, including saturated fat from eggs and butter, cold press oils, fish oils, nuts, seeds and avocadoes are actually required to maintain a healthy body! However it is important that we eat enough of the “good fats” and not so much of the “bad fats.”
A hearty Breakfast
Make sure you start your day with a good old hearty breakfast! Eating a balanced breakfast is a big step towards making sure you are giving your body the food and nutrients it needs on a daily basis. You will also find that you have more energy throughout the day. With a healthy breakfast, you are less likely to overeat at other meal times. 

Limit the “junk food”
As you age, your body finds it difficult to digest the vast amounts of sugar, alcohol, and processed foods that you regularly eat. Our enzyme production for digestion for junk food lacks as we age. The by products of this dilemma can cause aging ailments which you experience as arthritis, stomach problems, age spots on skin and damage to heart, lung, liver, and gall bladder. – Something you do not want to experience, so say goodbye to the “junk food” and hello to the “healthier food.”
Avoid “fad diets”
There is always some kind of fad diet that is in the news and is the diet that all of the celebrities are losing weight on. These diets are just a “fad”! In order to lose weight and remain looking young and healthy you need to make sure you have a well balanced diet. Get the facts about how to make healthy eating choices, and as you age and eat more of these types of foods opposed to what all of the “celebrities are eating.”

Vitamins and minerals
Ensuring your body gets the correct vitamins and minerals on a daily basis is critical to ensuring you keep your youthful appearance. Energy-giving substances are carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Eating a variety of these types of food will give you all the energy and vitamins you need to stay healthy. Make sure you are getting the required A, B, C, and D vitamins from food, if you are not maybe think about taking a supplement.  
When it comes to aging you want to ensure you are getting plenty of vitamin B to help you to produce the collagen your skin cells need to retain their elasticity.
