hey guys today we're gonna talk about how to look at least 10 years younger

okay so I'm 54 years old going on 29 and my wife is 55 and I'm gonna tell you our

secret but if I tell you this you have to promise not to tell anyone okay

you're gonna have to sign off on the comment below and say you won't tell

anyone this is just between you and me in the four walls and I'm just being

totally kidding around because this is really it's not really a secret it's

just very basic common sense because if you think about it if you want really

useful skin what does skin man have fat in protein

okay is it made out of unsaturated fats no it's made out of saturated fats so

take a wild guess what you should be eating more of that's right

cholesterol and saturated fats the exact things that they tell you not to eat I

mean think about if you go in a low-fat diet you start getting old really fast

so if you want aging skin just starve yourself of fats okay especially

saturated fats all right now what does cholesterol and saturated fats do for

you well there's three things 50% of your cell membranes are made out of

cholesterol okay because we meet cholesterol body makes it and we need it

from our diet it also helps you make bile to help you digest the fat that

you're eating especially to extract the fat soluble vitamins out of that fat

also the cholesterol is needed to make hormones because as you know as you get

older you lose your hormones you look older right so we want to make sure the

food the precursors the raw material for your hormones are there very very

important now under ball the fats and vitamins the vitamin A is the most

important anti-aging fat soluble vitamin for your skin okay the epidermis and the

dermis the different layers of the skin are controlled by vitamin a and if you

have enough vitamin A your skin will be soft and firm and it won't be so dry

because vitamin A deficiency it creates dry skin scaly skin it's

called actually corn avocation which is real

rough skin you get acne I don't know if you knew this but the genes that make

collagen need vitamin A so vitamin A triggers the production of collagen now

where do you get vitamin A well you can get it from leafy greens right but the

beta carotene in the leafy greens including kale and spinach and other

greens is a precursor it's not that retinal the active form of vitamin A it

has to be converted into the active form so it's important to consume these

things the exact oxidants these phytonutrients but if you're doing high

amounts of beta-carotene without enough of these active forms your skin is not

going to look as youthful you really need the active form of vitamin A so

guess where you get vitamin A egg yolks okay cod liver oil butter salmon fish

goats cheese make sure that the color all you get is virgin cod liver oil it's

just a higher quality make sure the eggs that you consume are pasture raised

organic very important the next important vitamin would be vitamin E ok

vitamin E protects the skin against aging against sunburns against oxidizing

ok it will prevent wrinkles too it actually is anti scarring and it

supports your pituitary hormones ok so it's another key nutrient to help as a

building block especially if you're going through menopause as you get older

your ovaries go in hibernation they go in retirement they don't work anymore

so that means you don't need as many sex hormones so the pituitary doesn't output

as many hormones and the vitamin E starts dropping down you need vitamin E

for those sex hormones so it's very very important to have vitamin E where do you

give at a mini well you get it from palm oil eco-friendly of course especially

the red palm oil leafy greens you can get it from wheat germ oil I don't like

that source but you can olive oil seeds and nuts and a lot of the other foods

that I mentioned about vitamin A also have vitamin E now the other thing

on the flipside that you need to focus on is what to avoid okay the number one

thing to avoid to prevent aging skin is AGEs just so happens that stands for

age this stands for advanced glycation end-products now what is that basically

when you combine protein and sugar or protein with fat like in a deep-fried

doughnut or french fries or if you're taking protein like barbecued ribs and

you're actually compiling all that sugar with the protein you create these sticky

proteins and the protein starts getting sticky and it starts clogging everything

up in the eye and the artery and your glands but it's gonna make your skin

look very very old very very fast smoking is gonna age the skin and of

course smoking actually causes these advanced glycation end-products as well

stress we want to avoid cortisol cortisol in high amounts ages the skin

so definitely avoid these things right here and of course sugar avoid sugar and

refined carbohydrates simply because that's going to oxidize and aged things

very very fast so this is just one more reason that the healthy ketogenic diet

is important if we also add intermittent fasting to this we can accelerate it

even more because we get repair actions and when you're doing intamin fast and

you go through autophagy which kind of cleans out these damaged proteins that

are unusable now so you can clean up the old stuff within intermittent fasting and

with healthy keto add enough saturated fats to provide these nutrients and

other nutrients to start looking younger so thanks for watching and I will see

you in the next video hey guys real quick I have a new healthy keto eating
