  3. The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

01 How Your Diet Affects Aging

There are three main reasons why your diet affects aging:

  • Glycation: Glycation happens when sugar molecules attach to proteins or fats in your body. Eating too many sugary foods, pastries, and fried foods can trigger this process. As a result, your cells can get damaged, leading to wrinkles, saggy skin, and other signs of aging.
  • Oxidative stress: Oxidative stress occurs when your body has an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, while antioxidants protect cells from damage. Eating a lot of processed foods can increase oxidative stress, speeding up the aging process. But you can balance it out by adding antioxidant-rich foods to your diet, like berries, green leafy vegetables, and even dark chocolate.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation is your body's natural response to fight infection, but chronic inflammation can damage cells and lead to health problems, including aging. A diet high in processed food and sugar promotes chronic inflammation. L’évive Labs will show you anti-inflammatory foods to incorporate into your diet for prevention and reduction.

02 L’évive Labs’ 4 Pillars of an Anti-Aging Diet

You can adjust several things in your diet to slow down or even reverse the aging process.

Pillar 1: 
Anti-Aging Diet List

Do Eat:
  • Vegetables (especially cruciferous ones): Spinach, broccoli, peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, lettuce
  • Citrus/low-fructose high nutrient Fruits:  Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, lemons, pomegranate, avocado, soursop, goji berries
  • Wild-caught Fatty fish: salmon, tuna, mackerel
  • Whole grains instead of refined grains (in moderation): Millet, quinoa, buckwheat, (ancient grains)
  • Legumes: Chickpeas and beans
  • Soy products: Tofu, tempeh, edamame
  • Nuts and seeds: almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds
  • Herbs & Spices: Cayenne pepper, turmeric, ginger
  • MINIMAL Natural Sweets: Dark chocolate with more than 80% cocoa; monk fruit, stevia, organic agave/maple syrup; xylitol
Do not Eat:
  • Processed or baked foods: High in unhealthy fats, sugar, and salt, contributing to inflammation and weight gain.
  • Excess processed farmed red meat: Meals excessively high in saturated fat, TMAO, ferritin, and nitrates increase the risk of heart disease and chronic ailments.
  • White sugar: Refined carbohydrates cause blood sugar spikes, weight gain, and inflammation
  • White salt (table salt): High-salt diets contribute to obesity and poor skin health. Refined table salt contains excessively high levels of sodium, which leads to fluid and subtle mineral imbalances, hypertension, etc.

Pillar 2: 
Cook your food using gentle methods

High-heat cooking methods like frying or grilling can damage your cells, so it's best to cook your food using gentle methods, such as steaming or boiling.

Pillar 3: 
Add nutritional supplements

The older we get, the harder it gets for our body to extract the nutrients it needs most efficiently to drive cell renewal. This is why L’évive Labs has worked on a set of supplements that can help you boost your cell renewal and longevity:

Pillar 4: Listen to your body

There is a reason why we sometimes feel bloated, why our skin reacts to a certain intake of food, or why some of us can process certain foods better than others. We are all made of different genetics. Your own genetic code, our DNA, determines what your body can process the best to renew its cells and recharge its energies. At L’évive Labs, we help you understand what your body is made of and what diet will help you feel young and look fabulous.

03 Practice Intermittent Fasting

What is intermittent fasting?

There are many different ways to do intermittent fasting, but the most popular method is the 16/8 method. This means that you fast for 16 hours and eat during an 8-hour window. For example, you can eat between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., fasting then in the evening, overnight, and into the morning. However, you can adjust these times to suit your schedule, as long as you are sticking to the 16 hours of consecutive fasting.

How does intermittent fasting work?

When you fast, your body enters a state called ketosis, where it starts to break down stored energy sources, such as glycogen and fat, for energy. This process is called metabolic switching. Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body burns fat for energy instead of glucose. This can help to reduce body weight and improve insulin sensitivity. Studies also show that intermittent fasting helps to slow down the aging process through a process called autophagy, which helps your body with cell renewal and regeneration.

What are the benefits of intermittent fasting for anti-aging?

Reduces oxidative stress: Intermittent fasting helps to reduce oxidative stress, which is a major contributor to aging.

Promotes autophagy: Autophagy is a process by which cells recycle damaged or old proteins. Intermittent fasting can help to promote autophagy, which helps to keep cells healthy and prevent aging.

Protects against age-related decline in cognitive function: Intermittent fasting helps to protect against age-related decline in cognitive function.

If you are interested in trying intermittent fasting, there are a few things to keep in mind:

Start slowly: If you are new to intermittent fasting, start by fasting for shorter periods of time, such as 12 hours. Gradually increase the length of your fasts as you become more comfortable with the practice.

Listen to your body: If you feel lightheaded, dizzy, or weak while fasting, break your fast.

Stay hydrated: It is important to stay hydrated while fasting. Drink plenty of water, unsweetened tea, or coffee.

Eat healthy foods: When you are not fasting, make sure to focus on foods that will nourish your body.

Key Takeaways:

What food you eat, how you cook it, during which hours you eat vs allow your body to rest and recover, and which supplements you add will all have a significant impact on how you age.
