Many people would wish for long life if they were asked to make a single wish. But, as we all know, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride them.
You don’t have to rely on wishes to live a long life when you can make deliberate dietary choices to help you live longer.
These seven dietary changes will help you live longer.
Get a Glass of Wine
According to the American Heart Association, a glass of red wine every now and then is beneficial to your wellbeing (AHA). The American Heart Association claims that the antioxidants and other components present in red wine tend to lower the risk of heart disease. Moderate drinking for women means no more than one glass a day. No more than two for guys.
On Occasion, Go Meatless
People who consume very little meat live longer, according to a report from Loma Linda University. Vegetarians consume less saturated fat and consume more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, both of which are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Consume Some Watermelon
Because of its high lycopene content, it is well-known for its ability to combat cancer and heart disease.
Increase Your Intake Of (healthy) Fats
That might not sound like the healthiest advice, but replacing saturated and trans fats with the healthier monounsaturated fats may help lower bad cholesterol, increase good cholesterol, and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis.
Consume Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
There are many health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables on a daily basis or several times per day.
Increase Your Fiber Use
According to research published in 2008, the more fiber you consume, the lower your risk of coronary heart disease.
Fish Is a Good Option
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to lower bad cholesterol, aid in inflammation reduction, and lower the risk of cancer and heart attack.
