According to leading anti-ageing experts from around the world gathered in Sydney to attend this third annual conference the primary way to achieve this is to eat less as often and as regularly as we can. We also need to eat less animal-based protein with most of our protein being sourced from beans, chickpeas, seeds and lentils. From the perspective of a pyramid the base from which we obtain the vast majority of our diet should be comprised of fibre-rich vegetables including cauliflower, sweet potato, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, cucumbers, squash and celery alongside fruits like berries, tomatoes, apples and oranges. Above these resides the grains then on the next level are the plant proteins mentioned above flanked by leafy green vegetables; spinach, broccoli, kale and lettuce and finally at the apex we find the fats and oils comprised of almonds, pecans, walnuts, avocado and olive oil.
Aside from the longevity diet there are also natural compounds we can take to eliminate senescent cells that make our bodies age. These include fisetin found in apples, grapes, persimmons, strawberries, cucumbers and onions, and quercetin present in apples, onions, tea and red wine.
