What Is the Ageless Diet™?

2013-09-27 15.17.32

Our Ageless Diet Lifestyle™ is all about promoting an Ageless You™, a way of living & eating that keeps you feeling good and looking great. With this program we’ve created recipes, tips, shopping lists, meal plans, and ways of living that keep you happy and ageless. Growing older is nothing to fear when you are living and eating the Ageless Diet Program.

What is the Ageless Diet? It’s not a diet; it’s a lifestyle. A way of living that promotes an Ageless You, body and brain, because they are one, not separate. A way to eat, sleep, and live that makes you feel good and look great. Because you are what you eat, just as you are what you think. This is a diet that is not about restriction but about what you can enjoy, which are foods are that whole, energizing, and delicious. We’ve been developing this program for several years, and more focused and intensely these past few months. We’ve added a supplement component, to make you feel even better.

So here are the basics of the Ageless Diet:

1. Eat clean, anti-inflammatory whole foods

2. Take supplements & vitamins to augment your diet

3. Meditate daily, at least 10 minutes a day (20 minutes is even better, if you can)

4. Exercise daily – move your body through space at least 30 minutes a day, take a walk, do a little yoga, everyone has time to move the body

5. Sleep, sleep 7-9 hours a night (we have a list of supplements that will help support better sleeping)

Ideally you will do this diet and supplement program for at least 6 weeks. Some of the supplements – the basics – you’ll be doing for a while. The supplements are a good way to regulate your sleep and energy levels throughout the day. The diet is really simple. It’s about adding a lot of really tasty vegetables, fruits, certain types of proteins, and subtracting inflammatory foods. Your energy levels will be really good and clean, not jittery or weird, like with cleanses or caffeine or diets without enough food. You’ll give the 5 biggest inflammatory things – the top 3 allergens for people – for 3 weeks (after 21 days you’ll have a sense of how this new lifestyle works for you and how you can incorporate it into your life), and then if you want you can add, week by week a few of them back. After 3 weeks, you can add back a few whole grains, provided they’re not an allergen for you, this includes oats and sprouted breads. After adding a few grains back in your diet, you can incorporate some dairy, provided it’s not an allergen for you. This will mainly include grass-fed, organic butter and ghee, and, if you want, raw, organic cheeses, bearing in mind that most of the world -75%- has an allergy to dairy. And even if you’re not allergic to dairy, it’s best to keep consumption of it at a minimum.

For the full 6 weeks, you’ll want to abstain from any and all sugars (not including naturally occurring sugars in fruits and vegetables).

What are the 5 biggest inflammatory foods? They are: 1. Sugar, 2. Sugar, 3. Sugar, 4. Dairy (cheese, milk, yogurt, cream, etc.) 5. wheat (including grains like rye, farro, bulgur wheat, and for some people with severe gluten allergies, oats). Additionally, give up most grains, corn, any and all processed foods. We highly recommend giving up sugar for as long and as often as you can. It is the single most inflammatory food for most people, and it leads to major health issues – in the brain and the body! Sugar includes cane and beet sugars, honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, agave, stevia, artificial sweeteners – all of these keep your body in a constant craving for more sugar and thus in an inflammatory state.

“A growing body of evidence links particular foods and eating patterns with lower levels of inflammatory biomarkers. Both epidemiological studies and intervention trials support a link between diet and a reduced risk of many chronic diseases, and experts believe that the diet-inflammation connection might be one explanation. In a 2006 study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, scientists found that diets high in refined starches, sugars, saturated fats, and trans fats and low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and omega-3 fatty acids appear to turn on the inflammatory response. But a diet rich in whole foods, including healthful carbohydrates and fat and protein sources, along with regular exercise and not smoking, seems to cool down inflammation.” ( From Today’s Dietician) This is what we want to do with the Ageless Diet – cool down inflammation in your body (and brain) and get you feeling good, looking great.

We live in a time that has forgotten how to eat and move. Years of alcohol and drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational), too many carbs (especially carbohydrates in processed foods and sugar), dehydration (flavored waters, sodas, coffees), lack of healing sunlight (this is why we recommend a Vitamin D supplement everyday), almost complete lack of exercise, even walking around your neighborhood, connecting to the earth’s healing energy, and watching too much TV and content online and off has given us:

  • Significantly weakened eyes
  • Wrinkles by age 30 or even earlier
  • Inflamed and sick body and brain damage including depression, addiction, ADD
  • A body that is weak and stiff, and lacking in energy
  • A diminished, less vibrant you

You can make choices that can turn it all around. Your body is an integrated part of an information and energy system (there is no separation with how your body feels, your gut, and your brain – all is connected). Real, organic food is full of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients. But because our food is grown in a corrupted environment, we need to augment it with a basic battery of vitamins and supplements. How you feel is massively influenced by what you put in your digestive system. So eat the rainbow of fresh, whole, organically grown foods. Anti-inflammatory foods that are low-glycemic and organically grown. A mostly plant-based diet is one rich in antioxidants, nutrients and variety.

There is a long list of what you can and should eat! This Ageless Diet is not about deprivation; it’s about adding wonderful, energizing, delicious foods to your diet and life. You’ll find after a week, you won’t crave sugar, dairy, wheat, corn chips, or processed foods. Why? Because you’ll be feeling so good.

And because we live in a world where toxins abound, in the water, soil, and air, our food is not as pure as we would want, we augment this Ageless Diet with vitamins and supplements that support and promote a happier, ageless you. With this diet comes the list of supplements we recommend taking.

We’ll give you meals plans, a list of supplements, foods you can eat, meditation tips, and workouts, and more! And we hope this Ageless Diet becomes an Ageless Lifestyle for you, supporting you for the rest of your life!
