I’m sure many of you know that the older you get, the faster you age. This is especially true if you don’t fuel your body with proper nutrients and regular exercise.
BUT I’m sure very few of you knew that by the time you hit 40, you actually gain an EXTRA 6 months for every year you age. That means that by the time you’re 44 you’ll look and feel 48. And by the time you’re 60… Yup, you’re going to look and feel 70. Yikes!
I bet that thought alone is enough to make you want to follow these 5 steps to looking and feeling younger… But if you still need more convincing, consider this: by the time you reach 35, 90% of people lose enough muscle mass to burn an additional 4 lbs. of body fat…so not only are you losing muscle you’re also gaining fat, even if your caloric intake stays the same.
It sucks getting old, doesn’t it?
But here’s something else few people know…
All of this aging business is reversible at ANY AGE. There are ways to exercise, think, and eat to slow the aging process down to less than a year for every year…this means that in theory, you can look younger at 50 than you did at 45.
Now, before I go any further, let me make it clear that this doesn’t require a gazillion anti-aging drugs, supplements, gimmicks, or hormones. These tips are all natural secret routines of the anti-aging experts. These 5 steps reveal the things you absolutely MUST avoid in order to look younger, reclaim your health, and get your ideal body.
Please be forewarned that this steps go against all the conventional diet and exercise advice you’ve heard before…so don’t be too shocked!
Work out LESS
Say WHAT?! Yes, I did say less. Here’s the thing. Wasting an hour in the gym is just that – a waste of time! The answer to getting your ideal body is old school resistance training, and doing it CORRECTLY. (May I stress the CORRECTLY part again – very few people do it CORRECTLY.) People who do resistance training are able to get in and out of the gym before others are even done warming up. AND they look younger, less flabby and more toned. Know what else is great? The fact that you’re spending less time working out means you can spend more time doing things you like a little more than sweating – playing with your kids, spending time with your pets or your hubby, SLEEPING IN…oh, the possibilities…
Forget about low-fat diets
Fats are not to be feared – they are to be embraced. It boggles my mind that low-fat and fat-free diets have been the craze for years now, and few people have come to notice that society is still fat; only now they are more addicted to carbs and sugars. I’m here to tell you that FATS DON’T MAKE YOU FAT. Fats help you regenerate your power hormones such as testosterone. People on low-fat diets look gaunt and weak…not younger. So drop the craze and enjoy your fats.
Avoid chronic dehydration
Okay, okay, we all know that water is ‘good’ for you. But did you know that water burns fat? That it suppresses hunger? That it rejuvenates your skin? Water also saves your liver and kidneys from overworking because when your kidneys are taxed from too little water, your liver takes over. Now, get this: your liver is the NUMBER ONE fat burning organ in the body. Would you really rather it be busy processing liquids and toxins instead of burning fat? I think not. Drink some water ladies, I promise you that within weeks you’ll see a noticeable difference in your figure and your skin.
Your age is no excuse
I know it’s easy to blame your weight gain on the fact that you’re aging, but in reality, people gain weight because they eat too much, they drink too much, and don’t exercise enough. Studies have shown that people in their 90’s are capable of putting on muscle mass in a matter of weeks…and I’m assuming if you’re reading this, that means you know how to work the internet, and you’re probably not 90. Contrary to common belief, your body actually DOESN’T own a clock. The minute you hit a certain age your brain doesn’t tell your muscles to deplete, and your fat cells to multiply. Yes, you run into certain obstacles, joint problems, aches and pains, for women a huge one is menopause, etc., but there is more to weight gain than just hormonal changes or a few aches and pains. Instead of lying down and letting ‘growing old’ win, step up to the challenge. Maybe you can’t do ALL the things you could do when you were 15…or 20…or even 30. But that doesn’t mean you can’t modify your activities to accommodate these changes.
Stop spinning your wheels
If you enjoy sitting in one spot and sweating with only minor gains, then stop reading here and continue doing just that.
If you’re not one of those people, then you’ll be happy to learn that spinning and other endurance activities such as running do very little to stop the aging process. In fact, these endurance exercises can actually INCREASE the rate at which your body ages by increasing scavengers that feed on your body’s nutrients and tissues called radicals. As I mentioned before, old school resistance training is the way to go.
So there you have it, all you need to look younger and feel better is a splash of cold water, a touch of old school, and the honest truth. Start training and eating the RIGHT way.
Let me help, my program applies all of the above. Stop getting older today.
