Foods That Speed Up Your Aging Process

4

donutsWe often hear about what we need to eat so that we can look and feel better. Then there are the many lotions and potions that claim to be like a fountain of youth except these ‘fountains” typically drain your pockets and leave you looking just the same as before.

How about, rather than trying to look for what makes us look younger, we take another approach and just avoid foods that make us look older, inside and out? Some foods that we love to splurge on are actually like a fountain of aging, rather than a fountain of youth.

Below are the foods that you should avoid if you do not want to age faster than you should:

Sugar
There are several reasons why a sugar-filled diet makes you look older. When there is excess sugar in the body, it attaches itself to collagen, making the skin look stiff and inflexible. According to “Diet Myths Busted; Food Facts Not Nutrition Fiction” by Ann A. Rosenstein, “losing this elastic resilience of young skin will give the skin deep wrinkles and make it look old.”

Trans Fats
Like sugar, excess trans fats make the skin look stiff and inflexible. “Trans fats clog and stiffen the arteries and smaller blood vessels,” which makes the skin look old, wrote Rosenstein.

Salt
Salt dehydrates the body. When you are dehydrated, you become fatigued, which makes you look tired and worn out. In addition, excess salt contributes to kidney disease, high blood pressure and interferes with bone metabolism.

Coffee
Coffee and caffeinated products also dehydrate the body, making you look tired and worn out.

Candy
The sugar in candy causes inflammation in the body and can make skin look wrinkled and old.

Artificial Sweetener
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame are associated with headaches and joint pain and can make you crave sweets.

  1. So just don’t eat anything, right? Or you will look old. I have to become a rawest to retain my beauty is a lie. If you have wrinkle genes, you will be wrinkly. And the pigment plays a huge role. Eastern European descended people naturally look very old very early.

  2. This is not true for all I know folks that eat all these- things and look younger everyday it baffles my mind but if i eat anything sweet it ages me—there is probably an Unknown factor in my DNA—I’ve noticed certain surroundings have an impact on how i look and feel —-it’s sorta like adding and subtracting all things in life and knowing the difference. PEACE!!!!
