One of the most basic ways that has shown to extend lifespan is improving diet. The problems with most diets that advocate anti-aging benefits are that they are often contradictory. The only diet with scientific research to support these benefits is based on caloric restriction. Calorie restriction without malnutrition has shown to decelerate symptoms of aging in many species that results in a longer youthful health and may increase maximum lifespan. A healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet has shown a reduced cardiovascular risk.
There are hundreds of different diets that have been promoted for weight loss, and with so many options available, finding one that will help you lose weight, but that’s also good for your body can seem daunting.
One of our goals is to help you achieve optimal growth hormone levels to slow the aging process. A specialized nutrition plan based on your specific blood testing is the only way to achieve maximum benefit from eating. Growth hormone levels can be increased by following a low-glycemic diet and a regular exercise program. High insulin and glucose levels damage your body’s proteins leading to inflammation causing degenerative diseases such as arthritis, coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease and diabetes.
Common symptoms from a High Glycemic Diet include:
- Weight gain
- Increased abdominal fat
- Lack of fullness feeling after eating
- Low energy levels or fluctuating energy levels
- Excessive food cravings
