An anti-aging index is often implicit in a person’s eating habits. If you have the following four dietary habits, it is time to change.
1. Skipping breakfast
If you skip breakfast, your brain blood sugar will be low. Then you will feel tired and your response will be slow. Moreover, skipping breakfast and eating too much at lunch and dinner will disrupt the physiological activities of the digestive system and easily induce gastrointestinal diseases. People who often skip breakfast have an enhanced protective function of storing energy in the body when fasting, and the food they eat is easily absorbed, making the body obese. In addition, people who often skip breakfast will have dry skin, wrinkles and anemia, which accelerates aging.
How to improve: The best time for breakfast is 7 to 8 o’clock. Five types of foods should be selected for breakfast: foods rich in high-quality protein, such as eggs, milk, beef sauce, soy milk, etc.; foods rich in vitamin C, such as juice, vegetables, fruits, etc.; staple foods rich in carbohydrates, such as bread, Steamed buns, Hanamaki, etc.; liquid foods rich in moisture, such as rice porridge, milk, soy milk, etc.; appetizing foods that increase appetite, such as tomato juice, small pickles, etc. On the contrary, fried foods such as oil cakes, dough sticks, fried cakes, and fried steamed buns should not be used for breakfast.
2. Eating too much
If you are very full or even half full, it will increase the burden on the gastrointestinal tract and induce premature brain aging.
How to improve: Just eat seventy percent full with rice. Don’t overeat or make yourself particularly hungry.
3. Eating outside
If you often go banquets in restaurants, your intake of sugar, oil, salt, and alcohol, which all contribute to aging, will greatly increase. If things go on like this, it will inevitably accelerate the aging of the body.
How to improve: reduce the number of meals out to no more than 2 times a week; try to bring or have healthy food for lunch on weekdays and eat less foreign fast food, fried or spicy food for takeaway.
4. Instant food
Foods such as biscuits, instant noodles and chocolate are often high-sugar, high-oil or high-salt. Regular consumption can lead to premature aging of the body, causing the skin to become loose, dull and increase wrinkles. It also increases the body’s metabolic burden and the risk of high blood lipids, arteriosclerosis and other diseases.
How to improve: Eat three meals a day instead of biscuits, chocolates, quick-frozen dumplings or instant noodles. Each meal should include meat and vegetable, with a reasonable mix of staple and non-staple food. Choose fruits and milk for extra meals instead of pastries, biscuits, milk tea and other foods.
