Hey guys, it’s Wengie here. Welcome back to my channel, and ever since I told you guys that I was 30, you guys freak out, and I got so many comment on it, some of them completely hilarious, but I definitely owe you guys some anti-aging tips and what I discovered recently, re.
. literally blew.. rea-literally, literally brew ugh.. oh my god, literally blew my mind, because this isn’t something I ever learned in school and my parents never told me this it’s is one of the most awesome anti-aging tips I ever found out in my life, and is not skin care I always been a firm believer that what you put inside your body has a bigger effect on your skin and your overall health than what you put on top, although a good skin routine is super important, I may stress really really important looking young and looking gracefully has a lot to do with what you put into your body and what I recently realized, bacon could actually be giving me wrinkles, other things that I’ve been putting into my body have also been very bad for it, I actually didn’t even know until I started reading this book called ‘how not to die’ is a New York Best Seller I highly recommend it, I am gonna explain more about in the description box and link it for you guys what I read on it rea-literally change the way I look at my food I’m actually really excited I could share this over 900,000 thousand of you guys, oh my god our family has grown and if you guys haven’t joined, click the subscribe button and I post 2 videos a week, you’ll get notifications at the end of the video, I am gonna be giving you some super easy ways to incorporate this new diet in your life style because I am lazy and if I can do it, I am sure you can.
What I just discovered in this book is that the amount of AGEs in your food can actually affect the aging process, whether you get wrinkles, and high levels of AGEs can also promote insulin resistance, which is hand in hand with things like diabetes and it makes it harder for you to lose weight, and AGEs stands for Advanced Glycation End Products is kind of like a very perfect acronym because it spells AGE and it helps with anti-aging, meant to be.
What AGEs does is it actually increases the oxidizati… the oxidization and that is bad for aging because antioxidants reduce oxidization and keeps us looking young, where oxidization does the opposite.
Foods with high levels of AGEs can actually increase oxidization levels to a point where your body can’t handle it it increases inflammation and basically it just ages you and it could age you prematurely if you are consuming too many AGEs.
Some of the most innocent things you eat on your plate has crazy amounts of AGEs so bacon that has been microwaved for 3 minutes has over 90,000 AGEs and canned corn has 195 AGEs so the difference in just like food choice is incredible the other thing I discovered that was crazy is that even the same food items can have a huge difference in AGEs just depending on how you cook it So chicken that has been fried by 8 minutes has over 73,000 AGEs but if you take the exact same chicken and boil it for an hour, there is only a little over 11,000 AGEs you can even eat the exact same food and cook it differently and you can vastly reduce the amount of AGEs you consume in general fruit and veggies have low levels of AGEs and fats, sugars, processed foods, and meat have higher levels cooking methods with high levels of moisture such as steaming, boiling, cooking at low temperature, like stewing and slow cooking it reduces the amount of AGEs cooking methods that are really dry and really really hot like over 300 degrees can actually dramatically increase the amount of AGEs things like frying, grilling, barbecuing, baking, goodbye barbecues forever, so long and one thing to know is that even if you fry or cook vegetables and fruits in these really high temperatures and dry methods it actually doesn’t increase the amount of AGEs that badly compared to foods with high fat or sugar content such as meat and I wanted to take you guys to brunch to show you how I changed the way I eat after finding out this information I love going to cafes with my fiance, how like eating lower AGEs actually doesn’t affect your enjoyment of food we are heading to a healthy food cafe I try and pick dishes that are legumes, vegetables and if you feel like something meaty you can consider mushrooms, avoid a lot of cheese and bacon and sausages are super high in AGEs ask them to substitute the meat with something else if you can we got a spoon got it all over my hands ~laughs~ you know is not as fatty as normal nachos in terms of the meat, there is not much oil, is all vegetarian, no cheese, chip tomato mince and I feel like they are baked and not fried, is really good.
think poached eggs instead of fried eggs, poached chicken instead of fried chicken or roasted chicken and also look for things that are raw instead of baked or roasted, when I go out now I try to look for cafes that have the words like whole foods or even like vegetarian cafes.
Have the choice of picking the healthiest thing from the menu even if you can’t pick the restaurant. so as I mentioned before a really quick and easy way to reduce the amount of AGEs is in your food is actually to change the way you cook things try steaming things more often, going to restaurants with steam foods, boiling food, we use a slow cooker, instead of using the high heat on your stove, turn it to low heat and cook it a little bit longer also avoid things like burn bits, crispy bits, they can actually increase your AGEs dramatically and they are actually not that great for you if you avoid burning your food that can save you a lot of AGEs, so if you do have to have barbecues, marinating these meats in a citrus based kind of marinade like lemon or lime can actually reduce vast amounts of AGEs once you cook it so I hope that this little gem of information inspires you to change the way that you eat so that we can all be vampires living a healthy lifestyle low in AGEs can actually reduce a bunch of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, alzheimer’s disease, and kidneys failure there is no harm in changing the way you eat key bonus is that we get wrinkles a lot later in life and I think a really fun exercise would be for you guys to list 1 kind of food substitution change after listening to this video, so are you gonna replace you know fried chicken with boiled chicken? I love to know what your tips are and I’m sure you guys will inspire other people to make changes reducing AGEs is only of course a small component of a healthy lifestyle I got a whole playlist of diets and sort of exercise tips on my channel so I’m gonna link that down below in here for you guys I went through a huge weight loss phase, where I tried to become healthier so don’t forget that I love you guys so so so much, and I’ll see you guys right back here in a couple of days bye
