4 Steps To Turn Back The Aging Clock

SHARE & COMMENT

iStock_000000831737XSmallIn my gym and among my personal training clients I meet many men who dismiss an expanding waistline, brain fog, decreased libido, low energy, and other health issues as normal.

“That’s the price of getting old,” they reluctantly say.

Yet I see people in their 40s, 50s, 70s, and beyond with active, vibrant lives. They enjoy fulfilling relationships, have tons of energy, travel frequently, and share a passionate zest for life and living.

 

Why do some people succumb to adverse symptoms while others enjoy lean bodies, abundant energy, fantastic health, passionate sex, and meaningful relationships as they grow older?

I’ve looked closely at these healthy, happy people – many of whom are my clients, while others are friends – and determined 4 practices they employ to turn back the clock and prove that age is just a number:

1. They eat an anti-aging diet. Every meal they eat contains fresh, unprocessed foods such as free ranging animals, fish from the ocean, leafy greens, tons of vegetables, nuts and seeds, lots of healthy fats and some fruit. They snack on a handful of nuts every day. Best of all, they enjoy these foods, including treats like an ounce of dark chocolate daily.

2. They meet their unique nutrient needs. More than 80 percent of people are nutrient deficient, which among other problems leads to low testosterone and other hormones that accelerate aging and bring on poor health. Not these clients. They get optimal amounts of critical nutrients including a balance of protein, good carbohydrates and healthy fats along with plenty of omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin K, magnesium, zinc and calcium.  They easily meet their daily 30–40 gram fiber quota.

3. They stay VERY physically active. Beyond simply working out, these people optimize their workouts. They don’t spend hours on elliptical machines or doing low intensity ‘cardio’ type activity. Instead, they combine proper strength training exercise with a session or two of interval training each week. Many people fear heavy weights will make them bulky. Far from it: these folks use weight resistance to look youthful and lean, boost hormone levels, strengthen their immune system to fight infections, and slow aging.

4. They manage stress well. Everyone experiences some stress. A moderate amount gives you purpose and challenge. Trouble begins when you don’t manage it well. Chronic stress accelerates aging and decreases your performance. These folks have plenty of life stress, but they know how to handle it. They get adequate sleep, have fun, eat well (ie not processed foods), exercise daily, and enjoy peace and calm in their daily routines.
