Misconceptions regarding the ageing process

There are many myths and misconceptions regarding halting the ageing process. We have all heard about special lotions and potions for the skin and also that staying slim is the answer to looking younger.

Here are a few misconceptions about the ageing process:

1. CARDIO – what do I see everyday when I go to my gym? An entire gym mainly full of cardio machines and most people pounding away at them for hours on end. Too many people think that cardio is the answer to anything weight loss related. Cardio, is of course useful, if done correctly, but it will not slow down the ageing process. In fact, it does the complete opposite – it can accelerate the ageing process!

2. A LOW FAT DIET – Since the introduction of fat free everything, the population has actually got fatter. We  need fat to remain healthy and look younger. Fat is not bad for you if you know what you are eating. If you are just following a low-fat diet, you are depriving your body of the nutrients it needs to function correctly and remain looking younger. You need fat to feed your hormones which make you look younger.

3. YOGA – There is such a fad over yoga – everyone seems to be doing it. Now I know yoga is good for improving your flexibility and spiritual connection but it can not be considered an effective overall exercise. Sure, some movements are physically challenging and demanding but they do not stimulate the entire body to build lean muscle, burn fat and most importantly slow the ageing process!!

 

So sounds like you need to eat more fat to look younger and engage in physical activity which will stimulate your entire body such as circuits and some weights.

What is Justin Beiber playing at?

I can’t keep up with Justin Bieber and all his women. One minute him and Selena are back together and then he’s out there with several other women! What’s going on Justin? You can’t keep it real with one woman? I have to say this little man does annoy me and his constant toying with Selena’s emotions is getting a bit tiresome for everyone. Selena deserves better and should just cut this loser free.

Justin has recently been seen getting close to model Yovanna Ventura and Chantel Jefferies. He is definitely not a one woman man so ladies beware! He’s not worth it! Justin should do the right thing also and just leave Selena Gomez alone rather than playing with her emotions. It’s not fair on a young girl.
