Eating well has been linked by research to better health. It's now being linked to aging well, too. According to longevity research at Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, eating healthier foods has been connected to longer life spans and less disease rates as people age.

Eating well includes a diet rich in vegetables, legumes, fish, nuts, and whole grains. It's a healthy way to enjoy food and also the "least expensive" way to live when you factor in the costs of fighting disease over time. Per researchers at the school and based on long term studies, the most long lived populations consume low amounts of protein and high amounts of complex carbs.

They also recommend timing your eating to 12 hours periods and then fasting for 12 hours. Don't skip breakfast but do skip the late night meals which may lead to disrupting sleep patters. Further, if you're eating the right foods, eat until you are full without drastically restricting calories.

If you have trouble getting to the store to buy quality food on a regular basis, try ordering through the Treatmo App which lets shoppers discover and order natural local food that is better for you and easy to get. The food is less processed and contains better ingredients. Best of all it ships directly to your door and may be a great eating tool for your longevity goals.
