The key to living longer could be to eat a healthy, balanced diet – including at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day – as well as regular exercise. But you could boost your life expectancy by regularly eating low-fat yoghurt, it’s been claimed.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.
You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the easiest ways to make sure that you live longer is to snack on low-fat yoghurt, it’s been revealed.
“The science is clear. Eating the right foods can lead to a longer, healthier life,” it said.
“A basic heart-healthy diet can help you control your weight. That’s important because more than a third of people 65 and older are obese.
“A heart-healthy diet is one that includes: Fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products like yogurt and cheese, skinless poultry, lots of fish, nuts and beans, [and] non-tropical vegetable oils.
“Salmon and other fish, like trout and herring, are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower your chances of heart disease and may help with high blood pressure, among other things.”
