Sugar, avoid!

How can you look younger? Avoid refined sugar, and you will look younger! Why? Because refined sugar is enemy number one. Because, as to your
  • SKIN, refined sugar turns to glucose, glucose triggers glycation, through glycation the sugar molecules bind to your protein fibers, the building blocks of your skin, and this glycation will age your skin. And, as to your

  • BODY, refined sugar ages your body as well. For example, the proteins of your blood vessel undergo glycation, and you get stiffer, less flexible blood vessels. This leads to high blood pressure, the formation of plaque, blood flow blockages, heart disease, strokes and heart attacks.

  • The smallest blood vessels, such as those in the back of your eyes, kidneys and brain, are hit the hardest. These areas require a constant supply of glucose to meet their high energy requirements. As a result, they have the highest degree of glycation. Therefore,
Avoid foods high in advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs), such as bacon, barley malt, cake, candy, cheese, cookies, corn syrup, dextrose, eggs fried with margarine, fast food beef, fried chicken breast, fruit juice, high-fat meat, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, maple syrup, molasses, packaged meat, pastry, pink steak, pizza, soda, and turbinado.

Choose, if you don't mind the eventual weight gain, post-carb letdowns and cancer, foods low in AGEs, such as fruits, vegetables, boiled beans, boiled potatoes, bread, coffee, honey, orange juice, milk, pasta, popcorn, seafood, tea, vegetarian burgers and whole grains!

Minimize all fruits and fruit juices, to prevent insulin resistance and (type 2) diabetes.

Further minimize, as explained here, all carbs, including fruits and vegetables.

Use natural sugars - such as erythritol, stevia, or xylitol - because they trigger neither glycation nor spikes in blood sugar, as they have a more complex chemical structure than refined sugar. (5)

And because a nice smile of bright white teeth will make you look younger.

Consider using dentists and or over-the-counter tooth-whitening products. Shop for a dentist, especially for a cosmetic dentist.

So, how can you look younger? Spend a bit of money on your teeth, whiten your smile, and you will look younger! ...More >>
