I’d like to share with you the number one health and longevity secret. Would you like to know how to live longer and healthier? Would you like to live in optimum health and live to a ripe old age before you die? Would you like to enjoy your health and actually die healthy? If so, then I’ve got some good news for you.
Now, before I share it with you, I’d like to make you a deal. I will share this secret with you, IF you will promise to try it for at least 3 weeks. Fair enough?
Why 3 weeks? I personally believe that it takes about 3 weeks to create a new habit, whether good or bad. In this case, you’re going to be doing both. You are going to be creating for yourself a new lifestyle changing habit, while at the same time you’re breaking an old unhealthy habit. If you can apply this secret to your life for three weeks, consistently, then you’ll have the best chance of it becoming a new healthy lifestyle habit. Once it becomes a habit, it will be far easier to do on a consistent basis. As a new habit, it will benefit your health in numerous ways and contribute to your longevity.
#1 HEALTH AND LONGEVITY SECRET – Practice systematic undereating.
It may sound too simple to be true, but this truly is the number one health and longevity principle. This key to good nutrition and eating healthy is critical to your health and well being.
For the next three weeks, I want you to practice conscious under-eating. In other words, every time you sit down to eat a meal or a snack, I want you to take smaller portions than usual and eat less. It’s that simple, but it really makes a huge difference upon your health and how you feel after eating a meal.
The less you eat, the better you will feel because your digestive system will not be overloaded. Every time you eat, you put your digestive system to work breaking down the food in your stomach. Then your body has to assimilate the good nutrients and eliminate all of the toxins and waste. This whole 3-step process puts a strain on your body and it’s main organs.
What’s the opposite of under-eating? OVEREATING!
Did you know that overeating is one of the main causes of premature aging and degenerative illnesses? Overeating is a huge problem in our nation. Americans, on the average, overeat more than almost any other culture. As a result, we have not only a very high percentage of overweight and obese people, we have millions of people who are suffering from premature aging and terrible degenerative illnesses.
Here’s one final eating healthy tip. Eat only when you are really hungry. If you’re not hungry at mealtime, skip the meal. And remember, when you are hungry, practice conscious systematic under-eating. You will live a lot longer and be able to enjoy optimum health. Eating less food every day is one more of the keys to good nutrition and tips to eating healthy. I challenge you to try it for 3 weeks and see what a difference it will make in your life and long-term health.
