How can I look five years younger?

Connie Haralson
Psychology

I am in agreement with the other professionals that diet, exercise, and sleep are critical, but what about our mental health? I have seen dramatic improvements in the way my clients look and feel by gaining a stronger sense of self, confidence, and living their life authentically. We often feel tired and overwhelmed because we are not connecting with ourselves or others in a meaningful way. It is important to focus on the whole self!

The easiest way to look five years younger is from the inside out.  Our Chef Clinic experience has shown a less bloated, less red-eye, cleaner skin personal appearance after approximately 5 days of changing your diet and deliberately getting higher quality sleep.  Topical products can moisturize the skin, but expensive potions are unnecessary.

The keys are restricting your diet: discontinuing caffeine, alcohol, and high glycemic index foods and trans fat heavy foods(especially pastries, breads, and pasta), and foods with artificial chemical additives.  And increasing foods rich in omega-3s such as cold water fish (salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel) and walnuts, and olive oil. Adequate protein at breakfast (eggs, nuts, legumes), several servings of whole (not processed) vegetables, and whole fruit (with the skin) daily also appear important.
