The answer posted is pretty nice. However, what discourages me is the part about eating small meals frequently. Where is the evidence that this does anything differently than eating the same foods but in less sittings. Your body digests food better this way? Please cite the source.



Change in hair color at an early age is mostly caused by genetics. In rare cases it can also be caused by malnourishment, however if you're posting on this website then it's probably not that. I'm asian as well and have had white/grey hairs since around 10 or so. Right now my hair is probably around 5-10% grey and I haven't dyed it once. If you really mind then get it dyed, but understand that any unnatural chemical process is not great for your hair health.

Expertise

At age 33, I began to worry about "turning 40." I decided to do something - anything! - before I was 'over the hill' in life and health. I figured that once you turn "age 40," life was 'over,' and you spend the next 40 years rapidly aging and "falling apart." If you were lucky, the 'blessing' of death would come before it was too late!! I am now 62, retired at age 60 and I am enjoying life more than I ever had. How wrong - mentally - I was! When I became STRONGER - physically - everything got better for me. "Growing old" is NOT a 'natural process.' It is a terrible disease you have to FIGHT each day.

Experience

Proper exercise is the answer to "aging well." I have been exercising for 31 years and I have 'first-hand' experience at to what works, and what does not. Especially for older people like myself. Good health does NOT come from sitting in a stuffed chair, 'weightlifting' by lifting soup cans and watching "Murder She Wrote..." This was advised to me by a federal agency for aging seniors! GIVE me a BREAK!! You can also find me on Allexperts under weightlifting and "how to get what you want in life."

Education/Credentials
I have an Associate of Science Degree in General Business.
