Anything you put in the mouth affects both physical and mental health. Have you ever wondered why you have gained or lost a couple of pounds for no reason? Your diet has something to do with it! As with other things, diet also impacts the way you age. Specifically, it plays a role whether you age gracefully or whether you show signs of early aging.
The food choices you make also affect the rate at which your metabolism works. For instance, protein-rich foods may boost your metabolism, while refined carbs and complex carbs slow the metabolism because they are difficult to break down.
