Every gadget, instrument or even furniture has a period when it turns around to begin to function less than optimal level or abnormally. The reason behind this is that materials go through wear and tear and if they had not been properly maintained in the past, the chances that the object stand the test if time is slim. So is the case in humans.
Humans from age 10 place a lot of pressure on their body system; from the foods they eat to their general life style while neglecting to service the engines that do the entire work. The result of this is that the body begins to become susceptible to infections and diseases more than ever before since no form of maintenance had been previously performed. Then, HOW DO WE SERVICE OUR BODY?
1 Soft Drinks And Sodas:
This is definitely top on my list. For me, no food seems to contain empty-calorie as much as these products. The major ingredients of soft drinks and Sodas are caffeine, fructose, and refined sugar. Do not be deceived by the word diet soda or diet coke or any other name that seems to attract you as you perceive them to contain no sugar. Yes, they do not but they are loaded with artificial sweeteners like aspartame and saccharin which are even worse.
At age 40, your pancreas which is the organ responsible for the secretion of insulin which acts on sugar could have reduced in its performance unknown to you. The caffeine in sodas has also been associated with higher chances of a heart attack.
Some health professionals have argued that a little alcohol is good for the body. While I do not disagree with their assertion, I have never read or heard of any research that shows how avoiding consuming alcohol becomes hazardous to your body. At age 40, regularly funneling volumes of alcohol especially lager and ale will place pressure on your kidney and liver.
I understand that a little red wine could be helpful but that is never a reason to indulge in the various brands of alcohol sold in retail shops all around.
It has been a long time since I clearly notice how people who indulge in fries suddenly turn overweight. As you age, the less likely it is for you to be able to follow a nutritional regime to lose weight. So, why gain it in the first place? At 40, consuming fries increases your overall calorie intake and this makes you gain weight.
This is particularly dangerous for women above 40 who could be battling with arthritis and other bone-related conditions.
4 Pancakes And Doughnuts:
Flour, sugar, and oil are the major ingredients of these snacks. So, how do you benefit from this at age 40? Yes, egg and other ingredients might be included but these flour made products are known majorly to raise sugar levels
5 Chocolates And Candies:
Asides from the fact that these products are loaded with sugar and raise your sugar levels, chocolates and candies affect your dental health. Women are the culprit in this area as they love these products. I am sure that no one at 40 would love to have a poor dental status. Avoid them completely
