Today our guest is Sandra Woodruff, registered dietitian and co-author of Dr. Vlassara’s AGE-less Diet: How a Chemical in the Foods We Eat Promotes Disease, Obesity, and Aging and the Steps We Can Take to Stop It.  Dr. Benzinger sits down with Sandra to discuss the AGE-less diet and why it is useful for fending off disease, obesity, and aging.  Some topics covered include:

  • What does AGE stand for?
  • Why are cooking methods like stewing, braising, and steaming generally healthier?
  • Which kinds of fats are more likely to form AGEs?
  • Are there any popular diets that follow the AGE-less cooking guidelines?
  • What kinds of kitchen tools are needed for AGE-less cooking?
