AN EXPAT scientist has released a book explaining how simple changes to our lifestyles can help us live past a century, including drinking more coffee.
William Cortvriendt, from Holland, has researched the right choices we can make in terms of diet and exercise that will dramatically increase our life-span.
‘Living a Century or More’ blasts fasting diets and the ‘multi-vitamins myth’ while recommending we eat more dark chocolate because it decreases blood pressure.
He also explains why coffee and tea are just about the best thing we could be drinking and that regular daily consumption will increase life expectancy.
Dr Cortvriendt, who lives in Marbella, is currently writing a second book titled ‘Goodbye Sugar High’, which aims to tackle obesity by tackling its root causes and will be published this August.
The doctor decided to rent a house on the Costa del Sol in 2005 and then built his own in Marbella in 2007 to enjoy the weather and the international community.
He practises what he preaches, living his life by the lessons in his book, having been inspired by his parents who are farmers in Holland.
