Would You Like to Look and Feel 10-15 Years Younger?
Then Do Not Follow the USDA Food Pyramid – It’s the Antithesis of Anti-Aging Health
The Real Goal of Anti-Aging Health: Adding Quality Years to Your Life
Contrary to popular belief, advancement in age is not what causes illness. It’s our poor lifestyle that
culminates in illness as we age. Poor dietary habits, excessive stress, alcohol, smoking and lack of
exercise are what make us age. Knowing, learning and applying anti-aging health solutions can not only
forestall the aging process, but can add quality years to your life.
Don’t get me wrong - lots of people live long lives today. In fact, our life expectancy is longer than it has
been say, 40 years ago. However, we need to look at the quality of life we are living as we advance in age. When it comes to quality of life in old age, we are sorely lacking. Many people as they age are
plagued with arthritis, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure that rob them of
You Really Are What You Eat
We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” When it comes to anti-aging health, this principle is
even truer. We must learn to treat food as a powerful medicine. This is the foundational basis for all of
It’s difficult to admit, but when it comes to health, we’ve become a bit lazy and overly obsessed with
quick fixes. Americans on the whole are the fattest nation in the world. With all our technological savvy,
we still don’t apply the most basic of anti-aging health principles. Hippocrates said it best nearly 2000
years ago, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.”
So, why is our modern day diet making us ill? The powerful food industry, with $1 trillion in annual food
sales in the United States, understands the principles of anti-aging health but chooses to ignore them for
a number of reasons. One, they are costly to implement. Two, government subsidies for corn and
safflower oils create more profits for food producers by using these pro-inflammatory oils. Third, we as
consumers have not demanded healthier anti-inflammatory foods for ourselves and our children.
When It Comes To Anti-Aging Health, Politics Can Make You Sick
Politics are powerful and unfortunately the USDA Food Pyramid is loaded with misinformation guided by
political back scratching. If you want to realize the kind of quality health that is based on strong science,
don’t wait for the government, schools or universities to show you the way. You have to take your health into your own hands. The science of anti-aging health points to one major culprit underlying most
all chronic illness and debility: silent inflammation.
Unlike regular inflammation, which is a natural response of the body to infection or injury, silent
inflammation doesn’t cause pain, nor is it related to any specific injury or infection. You don’t know you
have it, unless you take a very specialized blood test called a “serum phospholipid fatty acid profile.”
Your doctor most likely never heard of this test.
What causes silent inflammation? There are three major causes:
1) Elevated insulin levels that come from eating too many carbohydrates and too few proteins
2) Too many omega-6 fatty acids and not enough omega-3 fatty acids in your diet
3) Not enough phytonutrients, which are the nutritional compounds found predominately in the
skin of pigmented fruits and vegetables.
If you don’t know about silent inflammation and you don’t know how to keep insulin levels low, and you don’t know how to balance proteins and carbohydrates and you don’t know how to get enough
phytonutrients in your diet, it’s not your fault. You are a victim of the system that was supposed to protect you.
You Can Lay the Foundation of Anti-Aging Health in Less Than 30 Seconds A Day
The good news is it’s not that hard to learn the foundational principles of anti-aging health. Better yet, there are now ways to create a strong personal foundation of health in less than 30 seconds a day. I
know that sounds hard to believe but it’s true. Simply incorporate the following three principles into
your daily regimen:
1) Treat food as a powerful medicine by eating at least 1 gram of protein for every 2 grams of
carbohydrates that you consume.
2) Speak with your doctor about taking a pharmaceutical grade ultra-refined fish oil in high enough
doses to reduce silent inflammation in your body. The dosage should be based on the results of
a blood test, called a serum phospholipid fatty acid profile. This usually means taking four to
eight capsules of Omega-3 fatty acids a day. That takes about 15 seconds. (Do not take this
much fish oil from health food stores or Costco. It is not safe. It needs to be pharmaceutical
3) Include phytonutrient foods in abundance, usually about 10 to 13 servings of fruits and
vegetables a day. For those of you who can’t imagine eating that many fruits and veggies a day,
don’t worry. There are now functional beverages that have been designed to have the
phytonutrient and antioxidant equivalent of 10 to 13 fruits and vegetables a day, in as little as 4
ounces a day. Find one of these high quality beverages and drink up. That will take you about
another 15 seconds a day.
So there you have it. In just 30 seconds a day, you can learn and incorporate each of these levels of anti-
aging health into your daily regimen. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Are you ready to look and feel 15 years younger?
