5 +1 Steps To Looking 10 Years Younger

Are you aware that once you hit 40 years of age, whether you’re a man or a woman, your body starts aging FASTER than normal? It’s a fact that you can’t avoid. Studies have shown that without the proper nutrients and exercise, your body will age about 6 months EXTRA for every year that passes. Think about that! If you are 40, that means by the time you hit 44 you will LOOK and FEEL 48. And by the time you reach 60, you will LOOK and FEEL 70 YEARS OLD! We see this every day… just look around you.

Did you know that 90% of people over the age of 35 lose enough muscle every year to burn off an additional 4 pounds of body fat? That means you not only lose the only thing on your body that creates shape, tone, and strength—you also gain more fat every year, even if your calories stay the same.

Did you know that all of this is reversible at any age? That there are specific ways to move, eat, and think that tell your brain to STOP this rapid aging process… and even SLOW IT DOWN to the point where you’re aging less than a year for every year? That means you can look younger at 40 than you do at 35… or if you’re like me..younger at 60+ than I did at 40+….LOL…1very true!

This is not fantasy talk. This does not require a boatload of anti-aging drugs, supplements, or gimmicks. And, this works for anyone, male or female, and works at any age. 35, 45, 55, 65, 75… you name it. The biology is exactly the same.

There are many tips, tricks, and strategies that I have picked up through reading loads of health magazines that has allowed me to literally slow the aging process, at least from a cellular level. That means my body’s look, feel, and MOVE younger than my chronological age.

There are  5 + 1 key principles you must apply in order to STOP the rapid onset of aging that’s going on right now, reverse it, and begin “aging backwards” by restoring your body’s natural youth hormones.

That said, I have to warn you: What you are about to hear may go against all the conventional diet and exercise advice you’ve been hearing. That’s because the world has, to be utterly frank, gone soft! “Core training”, hot yoga, spin classes, tai chí, zumba clases, all of these are just fine, but they won’t slow your aging, and they certainly will never shape your muscles or burn off stubborn body fat. No way!

These 5 steps reveal the things you absolutely MUST AVOID if you want to slow the aging process, reclaim your health, and achieve your ideal body and the extra 1 thing you should also do

What you need is a splash of cold water, a touch of Old School, and the honest truth. Sound good? Let’s waka in!

Low fat everything has been the craze now for decades and look around. What has that wonderful bit of advice done for the bodies you see? We’re fatter, sicker, and more addicted to sugar and carbs than any other time in history. And, we’re passing these habits to our kids.

Fats are not to be feared – they’re to be embraced. They do not make you fat; rather, they help your body regenerate your power hormones. Testosterone, the ‘strength’ hormone, for example, is the direct result of cholesterol and dietary fat intake. That’s right: “Cholesterol” isn’t a dirty word! Your body needs dietary fat and cholesterol in order to produce ANY AND ALL vital hormones.

People on low fat diets look drawn, gaunt, and weak. They are often sick, sometimes to the point of literally breaking down. And, they can never just enjoy eating out. Every meal and every gram must be accounted for. Do you really think this will make you younger? Of course not… it will worry you to death if it doesn’t kill

 

runningStep 2: Stop Running in Circles

Gym classes can be fun, if you like sitting in one place and torturing yourself. But have you noticed how little people change their bodies in these classes? Sure, it’s good “cardio”, but cardiovascular conditioning can be gained with far less time and effort.

Treadmills, and any form of endurance training (especially running) does very little to help the age reversal process. Many times, these long-duration exercise bouts accelerate the aging process by increasing free radicals. These free radicals are scavengers that prey on your body’s essential nutrients and tissues.

There’s a smart way to exercise… we’ll cover that in a minute. And, what’s wonderful is that it takes you about ¼ the time of traditional workouts. We’ll cover more details on the next page.

As people attain middle age they blame their being fat because of that —NOPE!!!  they’re fat because they eat, think, and move like a fat, old, person!  Listen: Your body doesn’t own a clock. Studies have shown that men and women in their 90s were able to gain muscle tone in just a matter of weeks of simple weight training. I’ve read about men and women transform their physiques at literally all ages—25 to 95!

If you’re around those negative self-talk people who are constantly talking about growing old, all their aches and pains, and how life is just down hill after 40—LEAVE! Surround yourself with positive thinkers who absolutely crave a challenge. A challenge is what keeps you YOUNG, and the best challenge there is happens to be taking control of your health and body.

 

drinking waterStep 4: Avoid Chronic Dehydration

Water isn’t just “good for you” — water burns fat. Water suppresses hunger. Water renews your skin. Just drinking 12 ounces of pure water every day can take a few years off your face in a matter of weeks. You’ll also drop fat, have more energy, and save your kidneys and liver from chronic overwork.

When your kidneys are taxed from too little water, your liver has to take over. Now, get this: Your liver is your number one fat-burning organ. Do you REALLY want it processing liquids and toxins rather than BURNING FAT? No way, right? Well, grab a glass of water, and watch the mirror. Within a few weeks, the change to your face and body will be noticeable.

 

 

Old school resistanceStep 5: Work Out LESS (Yes, Less)

If you don’t work out at all, you’re going to lose muscle tissue every year. That means you’ll get fatter and flabbier each and every year with less shape and more sag. Is this what you desire? No way, right?

Well, the answer is old school resistance training.

An expert trainer said he has seen literally thousands of pro fitness athletes train over the year. He said the ones who looked the best — and that means looked the youngest, most toned, and had the least amount of unwanted fat — were the ones who left the gym while others were still warming up!

 

 

Love yourselfPLUS….Step 6:  LOVE YOURSELF

Most people find it difficult to love themselves and expose their emotions and body to all forms of bashings and torture.  When you love yourself, you will respect your body, both in and out and would do all you can to protect yourself from anything that would stress or violate you. Also, adopt the habit of looking at yourself in the mirror and say, ” your name….I love and appreciate you”! It is normal to use a sponge to bath yourself, but occassionaly use your hands to lather yourself and as you do that speak to yourself, “I love my body. I am strong and healthy. My cells renuew themselves daily. My skin is healthy……” just speak to your body. We are all energy beings and we radiate active action around us which responds to being spoken to lovingly.  Try it and let me know. Lol.

 

Health is wealth and you are in control of YOU. God has given you the knowledge to know right from wrong. The choice is always ours to make but sometimes ‘desire’ for the wrong things may seem more appealing but not beneficial in the long run.  You have only this body…treat it wisely and aim to live long in good health.
