A healthy, balanced, plant-based diet is the key to glowing, healthy skin. When you eat out you don’t really know what you’re putting into your body, and it’s likely not the healthiest option. Once in a while is fine, but you’ve got to be conscious about getting whole, clean foods into your diet on a consistent basis. These foods contain essential vitamins and minerals that repair and strengthen your body from the inside out, promoting a youthful appearance and optimal body functioning. The more you eat out, the more you rob your body of those good-for-you nutrients and fill it with excess fat, sodium, and sugar.
A study published in Lancet Oncology found that men who followed a healthy diet, a regular exercise regimen, and stress-reduction strategies were able to slow the aging process at the cellular level. The diet was high in whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and unrefined grains.
