British physician Tim Lebens listed the main eating habits that will increase life expectancy, writes Express…
According to the specialist, one should stop consuming sugar, which he called “the silent killer.”
It is necessary to add plant foods to the diet, in particular lentils, peas, nuts and chickpeas, which contain the necessary nutrients, proteins and carbohydrates for the body.
Lebens stressed that it is necessary to ensure that the person does not overeat. To do this, eat slowly and use smaller plates. According to the doctor, it takes about 20 minutes for the intestines to tell the brain that you are full.
Also, the specialist advised to consume at least 2 liters of fluid daily to maintain a high level of hydration of the body.
Earlier, the geneticist listed simple habits that reduce the risk of death from cancer and cardiovascular diseases. In particular, he advised consuming greens with every meal.
