What foods should I avoid eating to help me stay young?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Avoiding white foods -- carbohydrates that are white, cream, and white sauces -- is a basic tenet of age-reducing nutrition. What about honey and natural sugars? Unfortunately, these are not healthy substitutes for white sugar. So, avoid foods that are laden with brown sugar, corn sweetener, dextrose, fructose (high fructose corn sweetener), glucose, corn syrup, honey, invert sugar, lactose, maltose, malt syrup, molasses, raw sugar, sucrose, syrup, and table sugar.
