How to live longer: Easy food swap ‘could add over a decade to your life’ – expert

Weston said: “A recent study found that if a 20-year-old boosted their intake from zero grams of legumes per day to 200 grams (this would be the equivalent of a bowl of lentil soup for example) they could expect to live nearly two and a half years longer.”

How much of these foods do I need to eat?

Apart from increasing your legume intake to 200 grams daily, there’s also the old golden five a day rule.

Weston added: “Also consuming 225 grams of whole-grain products per day, such as porridge and brown rice, as well as a daily 25 grams serving of nuts were linked to adding two extra years of life.”
