The amazing Anti-Aging Diet promises to be a real-life fountain of youth!
Follow it, and you could live to be 120, according to an expert.
“It’s possible to survive well past a century, and it won’t require any superhuman effort on your part,” said health, fitness and preventive medicine expert Dr. Art Mollen.
The 70-year-old author of the best-selling book “Dr. Mollen’s Anti-Aging Diet” has finished three Boston Marathons, competed in triathlons and been an expert on healthy dieting for decades.
According to Dr. Mollen, the keys to longevity are regular exercise and a low-protein diet.
“The reduction of protein is the most important element in slowing the aging process,” said Dr. Mollen, who was recommended for U.S. Surgeon General.
“Protein is taxing on the kidneys, liver, heart and bones.
By slashing your intake, you’ll slow your body’s aging mechanism!”
By reducing protein intake, your body will not only look fitter, but will also be stronger internally and more resistant to disease, he said.
There’s no counting calories, and any loss of protein is balanced by the quantity and quality of food you eat.
The plan starts with the “Weight Loss Diet” stage, which “is designed to get you to your ideal weight,” Dr. Mollen explained. “Then you move to the second stage, or ‘Anti-Aging Lifetime Program,’ for the rest of your life.”
During the first stage, you’ll lose about two pounds a week.
He also recommends drinking 10 glasses of water a day and eliminating alcohol.
Proof that his Anti-Aging Diet works is in the thousands of patients who have successfully followed it.
“I have one patient who is 96 and walks three miles a day, and another who is 96 and walks two miles a day and golfs three times a week,” he said.
But you don’t have to be close to 100 to benefit from this doctor’s orders.
“One woman came to me at 31, and feeling 50,” he explained. “She was 40 pounds overweight and taking meds for heart palpitations, depression, anxiety, elevated cholesterol and headaches.
“After 60 days, she lost 40 pounds. Her cholesterol and blood pressure were down, and after three years, she never gained a pound back.”
Exercise is also important, he pointed out: “A 15- or 20-minute walk or workout of any sort, once a day, every day, will keep you young and strong to your 100th birthday and beyond!”
