Cosmetic surgery may improve your looks, but nutrition and physical fitness are far more effective

Most people considering cosmetic surgery don''t want to radically alter their appearance, says a new study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Instead, they just want to enhance their appearance with natural-looking improvements. In other words: they don''t want a total nose job, but a simple tuck that conceals excess skin flaps under the chin would be nice.

It''s an interesting trend in cosmetic surgery, but it''s also educational in the sense that these same results can typically be achieved without cosmetic surgery in the first place: regular physical exercise and a total diet makeover can subtract years from a person''s apparent age while hiding excess skin flaps, too! In fact, there''s nothing that makes you look better than regular physical fitness and following an outstanding nutritional strategy.

On the food and diet side, that means avoiding all processed foods and eating only natural, whole foods like fruits, vegetables, organic meats and whole grains. It also means giving yourself the nutritional supplements necessary to provide your body with all the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and other phytochemicals necessary to keep you healthy from the inside out.

Cosmetic surgery may be the shortcut, no doubt, but for the long haul, nothing beats diet and exercise for looking youthful, healthy and energetic. Because, after all, it''s not just for looks. You are youthful, healthy and energetic when you eat right and exercise regularly.
