What About Diet for Antiaging and Longevity?
For many years I've heard about special diets for longevity.
I've researched and read a lot about the Calorie Restriction Diet, Blood Type Diet, Diabetic Diet, Macrobiotic, Vegan, and on and on. How important can diet really be?
We all know certain people (well, just a few, really) who seem to beat the odds. They do everything wrong and live to be 96 in relative good health. Shouldn't we just do what we want and hope for the best?
I'm sure there's a way to find out what the most effective diet is for good health and long life; I just don't know where to start.
I live a healthy life now, don't smoke or drink, eat a lot of lightly cooked veggies and fresh fruit, a moderate amount of lean protein, moderate fat consumption, and very few artificial ingredients.
What else can I do to maintain my health well into old age?
