1. Do not overeat.
Nutrition experts, who study longevity around the world, claimed that if one wants to live up to 100, it is best not to eat more than you can. In one study, it was seen that elderly Japanese people-- especially the oldest among the communities-- would stop eating their food when they were only about 85% full. According to researchers from St. Louis University, it has been confirmed that eating smaller portions than normal helps individuals to age slowly. In a particular study conducted in 2008, these researchers found that controlling one's calories helped in lowering the production of a particular thyroid hormone, known as T3, which is responsible for slowing metabolism and speeding up the process of ageing.

3. Keep away from the sun's gaze.
4. Build a strong network.
5. Include fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Eating fewer than two servings of fruits and vegetables every day can cause serious health issues in the long run. Fruits and vegetables are nutritional powerhouses replete with essential fibre, vitamins and trace minerals that can help in lowering one's risk of cardiovascular disorders by over 70% and can also play a huge role in cutting down the risk of breast cancer. Another advantage to longevity, is that the antioxidants found in fruit and vegetables not only help in fighting inflammation and boosting the powers of circulation but can also help in delaying the advancement of facial wrinkles.
