To look and feel younger, make your plate as colorful as possible. Fill your diet with brightly colored foods like fruits and vegetables, plus legumes like red beans, all of which are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants fight oxidative stress and free radicals, both of which are linked to aging and disease. "Eat foods that are closer to the earth, and avoid chemicals which can make you age faster,” said Dr. Upton. So choose lean meats like chicken and fish, plus make sure you get enough healthy fats like Omega 3s, fish oils and flaxseeds.
