You know that a healthy diet plays a huge role in your overall wellness (and okay, wrinkle prevention, too)—but it's not just what you eat.

With cabinets full of fancy creams and moisturizers that promise to smother out the signs of getting older, the bathroom is often the battleground for anti-aging. But there's a lot of anti-aging ammo in the kitchen too. In fact, according to new research out of Brigham Young University, your eating habits can help you live longer.

The research looked at two groups of mice: one had unlimited access to food, and the other had restricted access (they ate 35 percent fewer calories than the first group). The mice that ate less lived longer.

When you eat, your cells hustle to absorb and store nutrients. But in between meals, your cells essentially go into a state that allows them to rebuild and improve. "We're very blessed with an abundance of food, and we're swimming amidst calories and nutrients all the time," says John Price, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Brigham Young University and senior author on the study. "But that may be pushing our bodies to operate continuously." Keeping your body busy absorbing and storing all of the time might not be such great thing.

Thankfully, there's no need to go on a super-restrictive diet. It's more about not overeating than it is about undereating, says Price. "Plus, the variation between people is huge, and things like genetics, lifestyle, and many other factors influence the needs of your body."

At the end of the day, let this serve as another reminder to limit calorie bombs like soft drinks and tune in to your hunger cues so you don't overdo it, starting with these five tips to stop overeating.

We're not just talking knocking out wrinkles and creating glowy skin here. We're talking about creating youth-extending radiant, uh-cells. Sexy.

If you’re still alive, you’re growing older every day. You may not notice it, but you are. Doctors and scientists used to take aging for granted. Scientists used to think that because aging was a natural process, there was no need to investigate it.The good news is that the team at Natural Anti-Aging Shortcuts has found the solution! They have performed extensive research on how and why we age, and they have been investigating for years on ways to slow down the aging process. Introducing:==> http://bit.ly/myantiaging

These foods are loaded with plethora of nutrients that is required by the body to maintain the optimum function of the different organ system.

Lovely information, very true and effective. I myself had gained over 20 pounds after the birth of my daughter. I could see my husband slowly losing interest in me as i got padded up with fat. Plus with age, fat was not going away no matter how hard i tried with so many things. Finally Thanks to this method, I was able to lose 18 pounds just following this system: http://leanbellybreakthrough1.club/lose-weight-fast
