Biological Age and Diet


By: Colin Cooley

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that people who strength training consistently look younger than those who don’t. Although we have no control over our chronological age, our biological age is within our control. Biological age refers to the time that has passed since body cells last regenerated. When training, the body must regenerate its cells more rapidly than when idle. Depending on your activity level, six to eight months from now our bodies will have regenerated nearly 100 percent of their tissue at the cellular level. This new tissue will literally be made up of what we eat between now and then. So a diet filled with processed foods and laden with sugar and crap is not what you want to ingest.

Oh. Thats Sexy. So you mean training consistently and eating well can make me look younger?

Yes. I am. Definitively. It’s Science, folks.

Remember: The more consistently you train the faster your body will regenerate itself. Keep your body looking young and vibrant through rigorous training and smart lifestyle choices. It’s the choices you make today that will determine how gracefully you’ve aged into your 50’s, 60’s, and beyond. Choose wisely!
