- In order to live the anti-aging lifestyle, you need to 1. Normalize insulin levels within the body 2. Increase Human Growth Hormone (HGH) naturally 3. Increase intracellular glutathione
- To normalize insuline one must avoid processed sugars, "hidden sugars" and foods they are allergic to
- HGH can be secreted at the highest level through high intensity interval training, combined with eating low glycemic foods such as complex carbohydrates and healthy protein post workout
- Supporting healthy glutathione levels can be done through removing environmental toxins from your home and body, combined with consuming foods rich in precursors to glutathione such as asparagus, avocado and spinich
Just a few weeks ago one of my patients named Sarah, a Hollywood actor, asked me if it would be okay if she could get Botox. She is in her late thirty’s, has had an extremely successful career, but knows she’s not looking like she use 15 years ago. She said, “Dr. Jones, everyone and their mothers gets Botox in Hollywood, I’m the only actor that doesn’t get it done. They also get Human Growth Hormone (HGH) injections. What do you think?”
Botox creates laxity in the skin by inhibiting and even killing nerve cells that innervate muscle tissue. This toxin works for 2-8 months before you would need re-injections into the skin. Human growth hormone is your body’s fat burning and anti-aging hormone. I reviewed the pros and cons of getting Botox and HGH injections and then introduced to her the ultimate anti-aging lifestyle that I’m about to reveal to you within this short article. She had never been exposed to this science before. As you will discovered, this information has the power to turn on anti-aging pathways within the body. The greatest part of it all, is that it is easy and free!
Anti-aging isn’t about taking another pill or getting a new surgery or procedure. It’s about rebuilding your youth through taping into your genetic potential on a cellular level. In order to rebuild your outer look, you need to rebuild your “inner look”. Anti-aging pathways need to be turned on within the body and you can only do that in the long term through living the anti-aging lifestyle.
When adopting the anti-aging lifestyle here are the 3 major factors that you need to address:
- Normalize Insulin Levels – Follow an anti-inflammatory lifestyle and nutrition plan
- Increase HGH – Follow specific exercise and nutrition strategies to see the most potent anti-aging hormone surge in your body up over 500% (this is the hormone that causes an increase in elasticity to your skin that can help remove wrinkles!)
- Increase Glutathione – Glutathione is the most potent anti-oxidant on earth and is made naturally within the cells of your body. Consuming foods high in precursors to glutathione and removing toxic exposures in your environment, you can help to boost this within your body.
By following these strategies, you give yourself the greatest potential of turning your anti-aging genes on within the cells of your body.
Exactly How To Normalize Insulin Levels
It is estimated that 1 in every 4 adults will develop type two diabetes in their lifetime. Double that if you’re a child. The stage before diabetes is what they call “insulin resistance”. You may have insulin resistance and not even know it.Why is this happening? The average person living in our industrialized nations consume over 95 grams of sugar per day! Much of that sugar is in the form of “hidden sugar”. Compare that to how much our ancestors ate. On an average day they would be consuming roughly 15 grams of sugar a day. Over time our cells insulin receptors become “fatigued” and down-regulate. Eating this amount of sugar doesn’t just cause insulin resistance or even diabetes, but it also accelerates aging within the body!To learn about what hidden sugars you may be consuming I recommend you watch the video presentationmy wife Erica and I have put together for a healthy lifestyle and weight loss program called ReNew.The good news is, this is totally reversible for most people. Adopting an anti-inflammatory nutrition plan will help heal the body and normalize insulin. As a side effect, you will produce less free radicals and turn on anti-aging pathways within the body.So what food do you eat? I have to pre-frame my answer by saying that the goal is to literally heal the cells of your body. You can only do that by staying away from foods that spike insulin and cause inflammation. By removing chronic levels of inflammation you dramatically remove the factors that damage the cells of your body. Here are five practical steps you can take:
- Drink Non-Sugar Beverages – Fruit juices like orange juice, soda and coffee with a few scoops of sugar spike insulin and accelerate aging. Stick with water or tea and try to stay away from artificial sweeteners. Stevia in moderation is fine.
- Consume Healthy Organic Meats- Conventional meats have several inflammatory, age-accelerating agents within them. Grass fed beef, low mercury fresh water fish and free run chicken and other animals are ideal.
- Cut Out Food Allergies – Food that you are allergic to create inflammation in your body and help to pack on the pounds. Common foods that people are allergic to are: Conventional dairy (especially from A1 Cows), grains and brewers yeast.
NOTE: Over 97% of the food allergies panels I’ve done for my patients come back with either moderate or severe food sensitivities to grains, over 70% to conventional dairy and 100% come back with sensitivities to brewers yeast.
4. Eat Healthy Whole Foods – Cut processed foods, fast food and TV dinners out of your daily routine. There are 100’s of healthy complex carbohydrates that you can have that are essential to consume when living this anti-aging lifestyle.
5. Eat Healthy Fats – Good fats include extra virgin olive oil, organic butter, and coconut oil (to name a few). Toxic fats include margarine, canola oil, conventional butter, cottonseed oil and vegetable oil (to name a few).
I know some of the things I’ve included in the list may come as a surprise. The reality is, in order to normalize insulin levels and turn on anti-aging pathways; you’ve got to follow the five steps above. The nice thing about living this lifestyle is that it will also turn on fat burning pathways in your body as well. To understand the science behind this, when you have a few minutes to spare, click the “ReNew” link on the side bar to the right of this article.But that’s not all. Nutrition is only one piece of live the anti-aging lifestyle. To create a stunning figure you also have to increase HGH.
The Best Strategy To Legally Increase HGH Over 500%
Research shows that if you follow specific healthy lifestyle strategies, you can boost HGH levels up over 500% in a given day. This is the equivalent of an Olympic athlete illegally injecting HGH into their bodies. The good news is, you can do this in a healthy way, naturally!
I’m sure you’ve seen your friends try “short cuts” through either a pill, a device or diet that promised them to lose weight and feel great! Dieting has an over 90% failure rate and a pill or a device isn’t typically long term sustainable. Living a healthy fat-burning, anti-aging lifestyle will most likely give you the safest and fastest results that will stick with you in the long term. You don’t get to high levels of success without pushing yourself a little here and there. The same goes with exercise. Exercise is not running on the treadmill or elliptical for 45 minutes and then going home. I hate to break it to you, but if you’re not sweaty and out of breath, than you’re not exercising.
The secretion of high levels of HGH can only be accomplished through high intensity exercises. High intensity exercise should be short (10-30 minutes) in order to minimize inflammation and stress levels associated with working out. Long workouts that go beyond 45 minutes or to the point of over exhaustion can secrete high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which increases insulin in the blood. This type of exercising also drops testosterone levels like a rock, which is important for both man and women.
Sarah had not been consistent with working out. As an actor she flies all over the world. She liked the idea of exercising like this because it was short and sweet. She would warm up for 3-5 minutes by going for a jog. Then she would sprint all out for 20-30 seconds until she was winded and felt “the burn”. She would catch her breath and slow jog for 1 ½ to 2 minutes and then go all out again for 20-30 seconds. She would repeat this six to ten times and then cool down for 3-5 minutes. She was normally done within 15 minutes, which accounted for a total of 1% of her day. She would repeat the same exercise 3 times a week and sometimes combine it with yoga or resistant training if she had time.
Burst Training Strategy Review:
- Warm up for 3-5 minutes
- Sprint all out for 20-30 seconds (biking, swimming, and rowing also work)
- Rest by slow jogging for 1-2 minutes
- Repeat the sprint and rest between 6-10 times (6 if you’re a beginner, 10 if you’re more advanced)
Now, it’s important to understand that what is antagonist to HGH is insulin. So if after a workout if you consume a banana or something high glycemic, you are essential shunting HGH secretion. You might find it interesting to know that the majority of HGH doesn’t get secreted until after the workout.To get HGH to the highest level possible, it is recommended to consume food that is high in complex carbohydrates and protein after your workout. Many anti-aging experts including myself will wait 1-2 hours after my workout to eat to enable HGH to skyrocket.
HGH is one of the sexiest topics in health right now because of its ability to create a stunning look and turn on anti-aging pathways within your body. However, if you ignore the anti-aging power of glutathione within your body, you’re anti-aging lifestyle wouldn’t be near as powerful.
How To Boost The Most Powerful Anti-Oxidant On Earth Naturally Within Your Body
When you see someone visibly aging, it is due to the minute damage that has been done day-by-day, year-by-year within the cells and tissues of the body. Many people that I test are deficient in the most powerful anti-oxidant on earth called glutathione.
It has been stated that over 80% of the population has glutathione depletion. Low glutathione levels are strongly correlated to these diseases:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Cancer 
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Crohn’s Disease
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Heart Disease
- Liver and Kidney Dysfunction
- Lung Disorders (IPF, Asthma, COPD)
- Wrinkling and Aging
- Parkinson’s Disease
As you can see, this anti-aging anti-oxidant is nothing to take lightly. There is no anti-oxidant on earth that has a higher anti-oxidant score (ORAC score) than glutathione.  For instance, blueberries have an ORAC score of 3000, dark chocolate has an ORAC score of 13,000 and Acai berries a score of 18,000. Supplements that detox the body and raise glutathione naturally have an ORAC scores as high as 192,000! 
You can see why it has such a powerful anti-aging affect within the body. So why are we seeing such a strong depletion of glutathione and what can you do to naturally increase it within your body?
Environmental toxicity, certain medications and excess stress all can deplete glutathione levels. Environmental toxins such as heavy metals, volatile organic compounds that off gas from laminate flooring, electronic equipment and mattresses as well as toxic preservatives and taste enhancers within the food we eat, deplete glutathione. It’s important to remove any chronic level of toxic exposure such as conventional cleaning agents and preservative rich foods. Getting an organic mattress and keeping your house as natural as possible is very important. Acetaminophen also depletes glutathione (Bartlett D 2004; Anker A 2001) and stress can deplete glutathione as well.
The solution is to remove the environmental toxins from inside the cell through what I call intra-cellular detoxification, avoid going on unnecessary medications, and implement strategies that will bring more peace into your life.
Some of the top foods that can support the healthy glutathione levels are:
- Curcumin found in Tumeric
- Undentured Whey Protein (Ideally from Grass Fed Cows)
Keep in mind that cooked food contain far less of the precursors to glutathione if none at all. There are other therapeutic ways to increase glutathione exponentially that have a far stronger effect than just eating the food suggested. But this is a great start for most people.
In order to live the anti-aging lifestyle, you should really work to normalize insulin levels within the body, increase human growth hormone as well as glutathione. By consuming foods low in processed sugar and even hidden sugars found in fruit juices and grains, you can help turn on anti-aging pathways in the body. As a bonus you will turn on fat burning pathways as well. Through high intensity interval training, combined with eating low glycemic foods such as complex carbohydrates and healthy protein, you can surge growth hormone to a very high level within your body. And through removing environmental toxins from your home and body, combined with consuming foods rich in precursors to glutathione, you can support healthy glutathione levels. Take these three steps and you’ll have implemented the 3 most powerful anti-aging lifestyle strategies available. Sarah is now living the true anti-aging lifestyle, which is the lifestyle that will create her new stunning look. Will you join her?
