Today's Adult Generations Are Dramatically Aging Faster

Alarming New Study Shows 40 is the New 55!

European Journal of Preventive Cardiology learned that today’s adult generations are aging faster than our parents. And the poor nutrition of today’s adult generations cause them to be less healthy.

They found that when it comes to metabolic health (how your body uses insulin to process the sugar in your blood), today’s 40 year old’s are on par with 55 year old’s of the generations before them. What does that mean for younger generations? Simply add 15 years!

20-Something Twice as Likely to Be Obese By Her 30s

The study examined various aspects of metabolic health, including the prevalence of obesity and body mass index (BMI). Young people today are notably higher than what they had been in the past. Women in their 20’s have twice the rate of obesity from a generation earlier. These results show that a 20-something is twice as likely to be obese by her 30s when compared to woman 10 years older.

The study points out, particularly among the younger generations, the need for a healthy body weight. Accomplish this by encouraging a good lifestyle, by increasing physical activity and have good eating habits with proper nutrition and a balanced diet. Including these habits will help you stay healthy and keep from aging ahead of your years.

Exercise

Regular visits to the gym with an optimized commitment including a personal trainer, will be a sure win. Or add speed walking to work 5 days a week. Try to achieve 30 minutes a day of physical activity. This will help you maintain a healthy weight, regulate blood pressure and reducing inflammation and allow your body to process insulin efficiently.

Healthy Diet

Remember that what you eat in private shows in public. But do you really stop to think about what you are doing? Routinely loading up on carbs from juice, cereal, wine, cakes, pasta, bread, rice and added sugar forces your body to demand more insulin to break down the rush of sugar in your bloodstream. Over time, your body relies on those levels of insulin. The same amount doesn’t work anymore causing the development of insulin resistance bordering type-2 diabetes.

Drinking just one can of soda drink a day increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 22%, according to a large European study. A theory suggests that high sweetness of diet drinks urges people to crave and eat more sweet foods, thus eating more sugar in the end.
