STEP 8: Cook the anti-aging way

It’s not always what you eat but how you prepare it that can subtract years from your life. That’s why you need to prepare your food in ways that do not promote the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), those nasty substances that accelerate aging, cause inflammation, and contribute to dozens of diseases and illnesses. Healthy cooking methods include poaching, boiling, stir-frying, slow-cooking (crockpot), and steaming; avoid baking, grilling, broiling, and microwaving. The same holds true for meals you order at restaurants.
