Being a grown-up means a lot of responsibility. Similar, when it comes to food habits, you have the freedom to eat whatever you want. However, once you hit your thirties, you should not be taking a chance with your health. It is time that you start fueling your body with the right kind of nutrition. While you must eat clean and healthy to nourish your ageing body, there are several foods that you should avoid after turning 30 to lower the risk of health issues.
You might feel like your body is completely the same in your thirties as it was during your twenties, but the reality is different. As you reach the milestone of 30 your body changes in such a way that losing weight becomes a challenge to maintain good health. To flaunt your body and age gracefully you must start avoiding food with artificial flavours. Skip any snack or food items that come with synthetic colours and flavouring. Even your favourite flavoured milkshake and yogurt!
Processed and canned food are equally not as best as you might think. Canned corns, tuna or even baked beans are no doubt handy for meal prep. But, when it comes to health it doesn’t do any good. It is loaded with sodium and preservatives that can worsen your blood pressure. Several studies have confirmed the link between high blood pressure and skin ageing.
It is ideal to lower down your sugar intake until you can stop it completely. Sugar induced diets/drinks can cause a slew of health problems, ranging from diabetes to PCOS to even female infertility. People who love to kick start their day with sugary breakfast tend to develop cardiovascular diseases more easily. If you’re craving for something sweet, fruit might be the safest option for your body.
Doctors also warn against excessive consumption of alcohol and beer as the ageing body doesn’t metabolise happy juices efficiently post the 30s. Similarly, it is best to avoid junk or fast food to prevent health complications.
