Discover the latest anti-ageing secret. Becoming younger from within and Future Proof Your Skin


how to change your diet to look younger and live longerArticle by Dr Stefanie Williams

While some people are genetically lucky and, seemingly without any effort, be able to maintain healthy, young looking skin and vitality into high age, most of us are not that fortunate. However, the good news is that genes merely express tendencies and that they are greatly affected by our lifestyle. In my new book, ‘Future Proof Your Skin’, I share the secret of why we are not just a ‘slave to our genes’, but how we can actively influence them. It is about future proofing your skin and future proofing your entire body and mind, by changing the way you eat. This book will change your life as it has changed mine.

Slowing down the ageing process

I have been painstakingly researching the scientific literature on how to slow down the aging process at a cellular level for many years. Once I assembled a comprehensive system based on the outcomes of my research, I started changing my lifestyle accordingly. After only a few months, I started seeing impressive changes and can now honestly say that I have never felt better in my life. After being repeatedly asked to reveal my anti-aging secrets, I decided to share my knowledge and experience.

But the book is not only about keeping your skin looking young and beautiful. It’s also about how to stay young within. It is about extending life span while feeling fit, well and happy because what is the use of having the most amazing skin if you die of a heart attack or cancer at the age of 55? These diseases are the number one killers in the Western world. However, it is estimated that 30 to 40% of all cancers and an even higher percentage of diabetes and cardiovascular disease could be prevented by lifestyle and dietary measures alone.

The underlying goal of the Future Food Plan is therefore to take optimal health into high age. For me, this equals true ‘anti-ageing’! Having beautiful, young looking skin is simply a great side effect of this. The Future Food Plan not only slows down the clock, but also has astounding ‘side effects’ including finding your optimal weight (without even trying) and cutting the risk of many modern diseases, including diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Longevity is only 20-30% determined by our genes

The aim is to trigger an ideal gene expression of your individual genetic potential. Newest research from the area of epigenetics has confirmed that genes do not behave like a light switch (i.e. either on or off, present or absent), but more like a light dimmer. Prominent longevity researchers believe that only 20–30% of what happens to us is determined by our genes (i.e. inheritance), and that the other 70–80% can be attributed to our environment and how well we maintain ourselves, i.e. are due to the lifestyle choices we make every day.

You can achieve this by inducing a beneficial hormonal and metabolic balance in your body and skin, which, in turn, will support longevity, and beautiful, healthy, young looking skin. I want you to become biologically younger from within, not just show fewer lines and wrinkles on the surface.

Future Proof Your Skin

I can promise that what you learn will challenge long-held beliefs and transform your view of what comprises a ‘healthy’ lifestyle. I will introduce you to completely new concepts, such as why the current ‘healthy’ eating advice actually makes you age quicker. A great deal of the information discussed in my book is derived from cutting-edge scientific evidence, but we all know that information challenging long-held beliefs is often controversial and takes time to accept. The public and even most doctors may not be aware of this evidence yet, as it has not entered mainstream medical practice.

Personally, I wouldn’t want to wait until society as a whole is gradually progressing towards a more longevity friendly lifestyle; it could be decades from now. And I want you to be at the forefront of new developments also. So, follow me for your breath-taking journey to Future Proof yourself!
