How to Live Forever in Ten Easy Steps: Step 3

Welcome to Step 3 of How to Live Forever in Ten Easy Steps:


Avoid Processed Foods.
The worst kinds of foods out there for your health are highly refined and energy-dense foods. I’m talking about candy bars, Twinkies, Doritos, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Oreos, most kid’s breakfast cereals, corn syrup-laden sodas, etc. Most of these foods contain both sugar AND salt in frightening amounts.

I’ll depress you even further. Your body can transmute these processed "foods" into body fat unbelievably efficiently. This is especially true if you are sedentary. And even if you are a regular exerciser, you can actually feel these foods literally clogging up your bloodstream and slowing you down during workouts.

The richest irony here is these kinds of foods are often the most expensive foods in the grocery store! Collard greens are only 99c a pound, but Doritos are $4 for a one-pound bag. Which of the two will leave globby residue on the inside of your arteries? Try to focus your diet away from these kinds of foods and instead focus on the types of foods in rule #1.
