This was the result of a fitness level test that I did yesterday. And although it says I'm 74 years old, I'm only 3 days away from my 75th birthday, so it's reasonable to say I've knocked 43 years off my fitness age.

Shrimp and Cholesterol: a Good Combination?

Shrimp and Cholesterol: a Good Combination?

Many questions are asked about shrimp and cholesterol online. In general, many people are concerned about cholesterol levels in foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products. In the case of the shrimp, the story about cholesterol is different, because a number of studies have shown that the high percentage of ‘good fats‘ in shrimp reduces the influence of cholesterol and that the vast majority of people can simply eat shrimps as part of a balanced diet.

Years ago shrimps were seen as a taboo for heart patients or for people who had to watch their cholesterol. This is because a small portion of, for example, 350 grams contains about 200 mg of cholesterol. For people at high risk of cardiovascular disease, this is their maximum recommended daily allowance. (For a healthy person, 300 mg is the recommended daily amount.)

Shrimp, however, have a very low total fat (about 1.5 grams per portion) and contain virtually no saturated fat. Saturated fat is known to be particularly harmful to the heart and blood vessels, partly because our body can efficiently convert it to LDL (or bad) cholesterol.

4 More Ways to Slow Down Aging

Is Age Just a Number?

Age is a Number

It's a well known fact that we perceive the people we love as being younger than they actually are.

It can be a couple in their sixties or seventies who still see each other as the 20 somethings they married 40 years ago.

It can be a father who still sees his daughter as the twelve year old who needed his support, advice and protection when the rest of the world sees her as the successful attorney that she's become.

Interestingly, this only happens if the object of affection has maintained their health and appearance.

The rose colored lens doesn't work if the subject has got too fat or too wrinkly to fit inside it any more.

The takeaway is embracing a diet and exercise related lifestyle will keep those rose colored glasses firmly on your loved one's face!

4 Ways to Slow Down Aging

Is Age Just a Number?

Slow Down Aging

A recent study by Duke University reported that the process of aging is highly variable among even young people in their teens, early twenties and early thirties.

Young people who are aging rapidly show early stages of physical and cognitive impairment, leading to early dementia symptoms.

This is why improving health through diet and exercise is important from a young age and throughout life. It improves the state of all our organs, leading to a positive imbalance between chronological and biological age.

Biological age is a measure of how quickly your body systems are declining.
