Califon, NJ (PressExposure) October 03, 2007 -- Over the past few weeks, The National Metabolic & Longevity Research Center has been bombarded with questions â but not about how to lose weight like most people might think â but rather, how to look and feel younger. To help folks get off on the right foot, Christopher Guerriero shares with you the basic foundation to looking young and vibrantâ¦
The primary cause of all premature aging, is living an acid lifestyle. Once you switch from doing things that cause acid to build up in your body and start doing things to create an alkaline environment in your body, you'll immediately begin to look younger, you'll immediately begin to have more energy, and you'll immediately begin to feel far better about yourself. But what constitutes an alkaline lifestyle? Well, before we go into what an alkaline diet is, I'm going to go over what an acid diet is, which is a diet or a lifestyle or foods that you're putting into your body that are causing you to build up acid and build up stress inside of your system. Hereâs a brief list of foods you need to avoid - foods that actually cause your body to age faster:
>> Sugars and sugar-containing foods
>> yeasts, breads and pastries
>> raised baked goods, things like breads, rolls, and cakes
>> Alcoholic beverages, all alcoholic beverages cause acidity in the body
>> Condiments and sauces which are things like mustards, tomato sauce, soy sauce, horseradish, vinegar of all sorts, mayonnaise, salad dressing, things like that.
>> Processed or smoked meats, all processed and smoked meats cause acid in the body.
>> Sodas, depending on where you are in the world, you may call a soda a soft drink or a pop or something like that, but all sodas. There's absolutely nothing good in sodas. Every single ingredient in a soda causes an acid build up in your body.
...and that's just the short list.
But now it's time to learn about an alkaline lifestyle.
This is the lifestyle that's going to help you live a lot longer, it's going to help you be a lot healthier and happier during that long life, and it's going to help you look a lot stronger and sexier.
In order for your diet to alkalize your body, it must be rich in nutrient-dense foods, in clean water, in lean healthy protein, and it's also got to be free of most toxins. And I say âmost toxinsâ because in today's environment, it's very difficult to avoid all toxins because there are toxins in everything around us.
Foods that promote a strong, healthy looking, energy-rich, alkaline body are raw, preferably organic, vegetables, and this is the single most important step that you could take today to alkalize your system, eating fresh, raw, preferably organic, vegetables allows your body to actually use the live enzymes, the life inside of those vegetables, and the energy from those vegetables, to energize and build your health from within you. So you're building health and you're helping reduce signs of aging from the inside out.
Eat raw vegetables, preferably organic, all day long. Juice them at least one or two times a day if you can. If you can't juice them or you don't like eating vegetables on a regular basis, then get yourself a greens drink and drink that at least one or two times a day.
But that's it. That's the whole list. An alkaline diet consists of loads of fresh, raw, preferably organic, vegetables, lean sources of poultry in each meal like fish or chicken and turkey (and if you're getting chicken and turkey, try to make them organic or free-range because that means that you're avoiding the toxins in there), and egg whites.
And also fresh water, preferably distilled water because the distilled water is going to help pull out any of the impurities that are in your system.
If you don't want to get that strict yet, then at least begin taking out all the foods from the acid list, especially those loaded with preservatives and other chemicals, and then slowly work your way into adding the really nutrient-dense foods like the organic vegetables, the lean sources of clean protein and the fresh water.
