Longevity - Living a Long, Healthy Life and Youngevity - Staying Forever Young Whatever Your Age

My neighbour told me the other day that he had suffered a heart attack. I could see from his expression that he was still very much shaken by the experience. He knew he was one of the lucky ones in that he actually survived this ordeal. Many do not.

His heart attack served as a wake-up call and reminded him of his mortality. He used to smoke and drink but now he quit those habits. He told me that his doctor had advised him to eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, to reduce his consumption of red meat and diary products and to eat more fish. I gave a wry smile.

It's not that I didn't sympathise with him. It's just that many people take their health for granted until their health fails. The truth is that there are simple things that one can do on a daily basis that will help anyone to maintain good health and one of those things is following a healthy diet.

This doesn't mean that you cannot indulge yourself from time to time. Aim to follow the 80:20 rule where you eat healthily 80% of the time and you will do much to enhance your chances of leading a disease-free life.

My neighbour told me about all the pills he had to take several times a day and again I could tell that this distressed him. Yet, previously he was happy to smoke a cigarette several times a day flooding his system with toxic substances. Now he is resentful that he has to take a bunch of pills to save his life.

At present he cannot walk very far without becoming tired. His family live abroad and he feels vulnerable. He recently experienced severe pain and had to call the emergency services to assist him because there was no one else to come to his aid. He would like to travel but it's not safe for him to do so at present.

Can you imagine what a wake-up call this must be for this man? And can you imagine the quality of life he is currently experiencing? His heart attack has literally turned his world upside-down but like I said - he is one of the lucky ones.

I know of many people who have died prematurely of diseases that could have been prevented with better dietary and lifestyle choices. And, if you are interested in living a long, healthy life, I have some good news for you.
