The benefits of healthy eating will help keep you looking younger; the internet is usually the first place people will look, for information on the best foods for health.

Eating healthy foods is the first thing to do, if you want to fight aging. There are so many important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, nuts, meats, chicken and fish that out body needs and wants.

There is no sure fire way to aging quicker, than having a diet high in refined white flour (white bread) and junk food. Try to eat more brown rice and whole grain breads instead.

The best way to lose weight is just eating healthy foods. I am always amazed at the numerous types of diets out there. All you really have to do is make sure you have a healthy breakfast in the mornings. Don’t skip this important meal of the day, as people who do, usually find they are continually fighting tummy fat.

A healthy breakfast can be anything from organic porridge, muesli, fruit and yoghurt, a banana smoothie with lsa (linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds) or wholemeal toast with a poached egg.

The benefits of healthy eating can be a marvellous thing for your body, and it doesn’t take much to get what you need, to stay looking younger and feeling good.

A handful of almonds for a quick snack when you are feeling peckish, with a small piece of dark chocolate, are always good for you.

There are many vitamins your body does not store, and are flushed out of your system through your urine, which is why it is important to eat healthy foods.

Vitamins such as B12 are not stored in the body, yet this is a very important vitamin, it is responsible for healthy skin and good vision. It is also needed to help the body break down calories.

The muscles in your body contain a lot of protein, which is another why eating healthy foods is important, you need to help your body replenish that protein.

You also need to help your body create new cells, ward off diseases and cancers, and have the energy to function every day. Everything you eat passes through your digestive tract, and all the goodness from the food you have eaten is used to repair and nourish every cell in your body.

When you have a healthy diet, you have more energy; you are not so moody and can think clearly. You will have healthy hair, skin and nails, everything about you just screams ‘I am healthy’.

Three meals a day and a couple of healthy snacks in-between is all you need to do. Make breakfast your biggest meal of the day and work down, so that your evening meal is the smallest one.

Try not to eat after 7pm as your metabolism slows down towards the evening, so it is best to try and get that evening meal in sooner rather than later. This is a great way of helping the body lose weight.

The message is always the same, eating healthy foods will help you live longer and look younger
