Nutritionist Vasilisa Ponomareva revealed a way to live to a hundred years. According to her, proper nutrition will help increase life expectancy by 13 years, reports Medikforum.
“We have known for decades that a healthy diet can have a positive impact on longevity and health,” said the expert. Ponomareva pointed to studies in the so-called “blue zones”, where people live longer and healthier. These are five places around the world, from Okinawa to Sardinia, where the diet is characterized by a high intake of vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes.The nutritionist noted that foods that are avoided in the “blue zones” play a special role, these are refined sugar, processed foods, as well as excess meat and dairy products. The preferred diet for places where life expectancy is high is a mostly plant-based diet with an emphasis on legumes as the main source of protein, the expert concluded. Endocrinologist Ekaterina Yang named three sources of non-burning fat on the table. She recommended reconsidering your diet if weight loss attempts are unsuccessful.
