Ten Foods for Longevity

The Incremental Approach: Choose Two per Week and Get Younger!

Salmon MealIF YOU’VE clicked around on this site a bit, you may have noticed that some of my posts get pretty long and perhaps a bit abstruse for a blog.

I know that blogs are supposed to be short and breezy so they can be scanned, rather than read. Sometimes I comply. In fact, that’s the idea behind this one.

Rather than construct another magnus opus on healthy foods, super foods (Superfoods, Anyone?), or longevity foods for 86 year-old billionaires, this post will be short and easily digestible.

In fact, I’ve grabbed a SlideShare presentation about Ten Foods for Longevity that’s available for distribution, because it does two things:

1. It presents a simple and enjoyable format to quickly learn about these ten foods, and

2. Its simplicity and directness may soften you up for a suggestion.

My Suggestion

Click through the presentation below and choose just two foods that you commit to eating regularly, as in several times a week. Be fair with yourself and select two foods that you already don’t eat.

This incremental approach is a good way to slowly get yourself to make changes. Two foods are not formidable. You can achieve this. And this positive step programs you to take more of them.

Next week, choose two more from the list.

When you discover that you’re eating all that you’re willing to eat from the list of ten, consider reading my two primers on the subject: A Blueprint for Eating Right and Diet 101, and discover if you have more room left to get to the promised land.

Let me know how you do in the “Comments” section below. Have fun!

Oh, try to get the organic stuff, and the salmon wild caught.

Excellent slide presentation. These foods really contains nutrients. Thanks for sharing this. Is it not bad to drink wine everyday?

    Wine is not in this particular list of 10 foods for longevity.  But many long-lived people world wide are known to drink one or two glasses of red wine per day.  More than this and the alcohol content might be more damaging than the benefits of the red grapes and trace amounts of resveratrol.

There’s no secret a healthy diet it’s very useful for our skin. A person that has such a diet can easily delay the signs of aging.
Even if wrinkles take over your appearance you should continue to be careful what you eat….Even after treatments like botox or dermal fillers a patient should eat right and healthy because these treatments won’t do everything for you.
