Aging is an inevitable process and as we age, it becomes more and more complicated to struggle against chronic diseases, uphold a healthy routine, and keep belly fat at bay. But contrary to popular belief, our health isn’t actually destined to plunge downhill with every turned page of the calendar. Sure, it would be much harder to cut out bread for a week and lose weight like you did in your twenties, but there are certain foods that you can add to your diet that will help you feel less old. Sooperchef.pk has listed the top five foods that you need to your diet in your quest to turn back time and feel healthy even after crossing 40.

Eggs

Preparing an omelet, making some scotch eggs or just boiling them in plain old water? Once you are above forty, it time to forget separating the yolks from the white and embrace the whole egg! There are healthy fats within the yolks that help you feel fuller longer and help you curb cravings. Not to mention that they are loaded with choline: a nutrient that has great belly fat-blasting tendencies and is only present in the orange part of the egg, but make sure you don’t consume more than two at t time. So the next time you go to the kitchen with the intent of whipping up a scramble, remember to crack the whole egg, yolk and all, into the pan.

Onions

Not only loaded with the powers of changing even the most tasteless burger into a delicious snack, onions are also great when it comes to fighting cancer. According to a group of researchers, grown red onions pack a healthy dose of quercetin and anthocyanins: compounds that fight off colon and breast cancers. Onions trigger corridors that push cancer cells to experience cell death and they endorse a hostile milieu for cancer cells by disrupting communiqué between cancer cells, which inhibits their development.

Chickpeas

A mere half-cup serving these tasty beans pack in about eight grams of fiber, helping you easily reaches the FDA’s 25-gram daily fiber recommendation. Whilst these beans make a sincerely satisfying salad topper, we can also fall in love with them by blending them with a bit of tahini, lemon juice, and salt for a delectable homemade hummus and falafel.

Almonds

Almonds are not only a delicious and handy snack, but these delicately charming nuts are also laden with heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that can help reduce the LDL (bad) cholesterol levels from the system. Even though chowing down almonds throughout any point of your day is a smart choice, getting your daily serving before you head for a workout at the gym can, in fact, help you cut even more fat and stay slimmer. A study found out that the amino acid L-arginine, which almonds overflow with, can help you burn more carbs and fat during workout sessions.

Watermelon

If you are tired of spartanly staring at the puffy bags under your eyes every morning then this summer fruit can help you look better even when you are way past the big 4-0!. Although it might sound illogical, the high water concentration of watermelon can, in fact, help reduce the water retention on the face especially the kind that leads to puffiness around the eyes. And since watermelon is low in sugar as compared to many other fruits, you would have to worry less about glycation, the chemical reaction that compromises collagen and contributes to wrinkles and lines on the face.read more: Top Six Foods That Your Body Will Thank You for Eating
