Delay Aging and Lengthen Your Life With LifeSpring

The iconic American author and activist Betty Friedan famously said, “Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” While this is true, it is also important that you take advantage of the opportunities afforded by aging by maintaining your health. After all, aging well is not just about the effort to lengthen your life, but also about trying to be in optimal shape during those later years.

The Importance of Maintaining a Balanced Diet to Help Lengthen Your Life

There is now little doubt about the correlation between how you eat and a longer life. According to the peer-reviewed journal Nutrients, “Nearly 50% of premature deaths are linked to lifestyle, such as our diet. A diet can be characterized quantitatively, by its calorie content, or qualitatively, for example, by its macro- and micronutrient content…. Apart from the daily calorie intake, the macronutrient composition of the diet is also a key factor.”

How can these dietary-related premature deaths be avoided? They can be avoided by maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. Oftentimes, maintaining a balanced diet becomes much easier when meals are specifically tailored to you. Receiving pre-prepared healthy meals takes all of the calorie and nutrient aspects out of your decision-making. With someone else doing the cooking, the only thing you need to focus on is what types of meals are going to satisfy your hunger needs. Remember food must satiate hunger as well as offer essential nutrients.

Some Keys to Help You Delay Aging and Lengthen Your Life

It is also important to remember that what you don’t eat can be just as important as what you do eat. This has to do with nutrients and anti-nutrients.

According to the Journal for Nurse Practitioners, “In order for food to be therapeutic, it must be nutrient-dense, measured in part by the nutrients and anti-nutrients, contained in consumed foods. Nutrients are plant and animal sources providing macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fat), micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants, probiotics), and fiber…. Anti-Nutrients are food products that have no biological necessity.” Focusing on getting the right balance between nutrients and anti-nutrients can delay aging and lengthen your life.

It is also important to remember that part of maximizing nutrients and minimizing anti-nutrients includes focusing on how much food is consumed. For example, even extremely nutritious foods can become detrimental if not consumed healthfully. Take a banana, for instance. This fruit contains plenty of nutrients and healthy fiber. However, if you eat multiple bananas in one day, you may exceed both your daily caloric and daily sugar intake. This is yet another reason why utilizing packaged personally tailored meals can be so helpful.

Healthy Eating Habits Can Be Happy Eating Habits

There is a misconception out there that healthy eating cannot be happy eating. This is simply not true. Individuals who believe this have unfortunately not had the experience of eating flavorful healthy food. Perhaps even worse, they may have had the experience of eating flavorless healthy food.

The key to healthy eating habits is to eat what you enjoy but to do so in a balanced fashion. However, the issue is that many people are unaware of what that balance entails. This is not their fault; they simply have not received the proper information. There is a reason that there is a billion-dollar health, diet, and wellness industry out there.

Why Dietitian-Designed Diets Are Helpful

Still, what about those of us who cannot afford or do not have access to our own professional nutritionist or dietitian? We can get these benefits by connecting with a meal plan that has our specific needs in mind.

It is important to remember that no food is universally healthy. This is why we all need individualized diets. You may have sensitivities or allergies to certain foods. Certain foods may not go well with your specific medications or health conditions. What’s more, certain foods may not settle well with your gut microbiome (a key component of nutrition). It is because of these individualized factors that medically tailored meals are not only beneficial but in some cases life-saving.

How to Delay Aging and Lengthen Your Life With LifeSpring Home Nutrition

Here at LifeSpring Home Nutrition, we believe in providing healthy, medically supportive food directly to our clients. Just as importantly, we believe food must be delicious and highly satisfying. That is why we work diligently to be part of every step of the process. From production to packaging to delivery, we make sure each meal is perfect for each and every one of our clients.

The Greek poet Euripides once wrote, “When a man’s stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor.” At LifeSpring Home Nutrition, since 1996, it has been our goal to provide healthy and satisfying meals to all who need them. We do this because everyone deserves a life that is not only long but also worth sticking around for.

It is now widely agreed upon that maintaining a healthy and balanced diet can slow the aging process and lengthen your life. For example, foods such as berries, leafy green vegetables, and fish contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that enhance skin quality and overall health. Proper eating habits also provide the body with the necessary nourishment and reduce the risk of developing many diseases. If you feel like you or someone you love can benefit from healthy, medically tailored meals with convenient home delivery, we can help.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
