Eatings Habits That Are Eating You

Do you want to age early? I don't. I mean, aging is fine, I'm just not rushing to get there. But did you know that some of our eating habits make us age faster.?

Which eating habits am I referring to? Here are some examples:

Keeping a fast-food diet.
Most of us live on fast food meals because we're too busy to cook. Doctors say that grab-and-go meals are brimming with trans-fat which decreases our cells' ability to regenerate over time.

Over-indulging one's sweet tooth.
Although sugar converts to energy, there's a limit to what the body can process effectively. The excess sugar then causes a ruckus on the body by setting off an age-accelerating process called glycosylation.

Eating only when we're really, really, REALLY hungry.
The hormone that signals the brain of our hunger doesn't immediately normalize once you start eating. This causes a tendency to overeat. And when this happens often, your risk of obesity increases. And we all know that obesity does nothing good to the body.

So again, do you want to age early? If not, then you might want to look out on your eating habits.
