Beautiful Black Senior Woman

The way you look and feel when you grow older depends much on how well you have taken care of yourself throughout the years. So, if you are 80 years old and you feel like you're only 60, chances are you have done these 3 things on a regular basis!

3 must-do things to look and feel younger when you get old:

Stimulating your body to repair and strengthen cell components has been shown to improve overall health and disease resistance, and add years to your life.

#1 - Exercising: Exercising regularly is one way of not only keeping your weight down and maintaining strength, but it also cleans your body of various debris, including toxins, and helps stimulate the repair of damaged cell components. Toxins are flushed out through sweating, and exercise increases blood flow for cell repair.

#2 - Fasting: Intermittent fasting stimulates the breakdown of cellular components which promotes cellular survival by maintaining cellular energy levels. In other words, fasting can stimulate the body's natural reaction to activate cell survival. Restricting your eating between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., for example, gives you plenty of hours of fasting.

#3 - Eating a Low-Carb/High Fat Diet: This process produces the same results as fasting. Increasing the amount of healthy fat in your diet, along with a moderate amount of low-carb proteins, will boost cell repair and strength. You can get most of your high-fiber, low-carbs from vegetables, and healthy fats from natural, unprocessed fat found in seeds, nuts, real butter, olives, avocado, or coconut oil.

The whole idea is to stimulate your cells to clean out toxins and recycle to maintain healthy cell production and energy levels. The body has a natural process of breaking down and repairing cells. However, by doing things that promote this process, you can stimulate greater cell production, how you feel, and how long you live.
