10 Healthy Foods for Longevity

Health is determined by what you eat."Let nutrition be your medicine," Aspostolus said.

What is true then has not changed today.

From my research and on-hand materials that I used to study for my Masters in Science in holistic nutrition, and clients who successfully improved health, energy or accomplished weight loss between 10 pounds and 100 pounds, here is my list of the top 10 foods.

These foods were selected for their general health, low toxicity and nutritional value (in terms of protein, fats, carbohydrates, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals).

And what is good for your health is great for weight loss and your longevity. Both go hand in hand.

10 Health Foods For Longevity

The foods chosen above are my "Top 10" foods list.

This list addresses protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes, which are essential for longevity and maintaining a healthy disease-free body.

The foods on this list contain the necessary building blocks to fortify your body, maintain a youthful skin and a healthy immune system.

This will help to maintain body weight and may prevent new-century diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancers when consumed according to your personal BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate).

Stay focused.
