i don"t understand why anyone would listen to life lessons from somebody who is still young. If someone who was 75 was saying this and looked in their 40's I might entertain the advice. But you only live once so why not enjoy what you eat.

BumpInTheNight: Remember visiting old relatives and sitting on their plastic-wrapped furniture?  Remember how odd and uncomfortable it felt and when you asked about it they responded they were protecting it for down the road?  Remember how you thought it was silly they'd have all this stuff in ridiculous plastic wrap but never really get to use it because they were so afraid of themselves damaging it in some way?

Yah, same thing with your bodies.  Have fun and be reasonable, you only live life once.


Yeah, but it's totally okay to wrap your dingaling in a plastic thing if you're gonna schwing.

Muta: My doctor was pushing some diet.  He asked me how old I thought he looked.  I said 63, he was 64.  He didn't look exceptionally healthy either and he was about 20 pounds over weight.  I should have kicked him in the nuts.


Doctors are not immune from hating aging.

Fano: Lots of vain people think they "don't need" reading glasses because they don't want to admit they've hit their 40s/50s.

I think we've been hit by a Smug Health Troll. "I'm as healthy as I was when I was 18, in fact, my 5k time is even FASTER than then." "How come we never see you run?"


That's called Middle Aged Delusional Syndrome. Like when you see 250 pound guys with bald spots and huge guts wearing spandex bike outfits on 10000$ carbon frame bikes.

Ok, so I can read better when everything is placed approx 1ft away from me.... (or I use a torch to illuminate books, that helps. It's worse when I'm tired.)
I also rarely post pictures of myself on th'intarwebz. Ok, I may *act* and probably feel 20+ years old some days, except for the fact that due to not being well and that my diet is as complicated as it needs to be, I'm under the hospital because my system has gone wrong and switching it off and turning it back on again won't help, plus the extra 35 pounds put on in the first half of this year is aggrevating my walking (I do a lot of walking and drinking water.. hate sodas). I took part in a protest march at the end of September.

Nidiot: Reverend Monkeypants: not csb:
friend's wife, a complete yoga freak raw food nutrition health person just died from cancer at 42 yrs old
so, whatever

We have less control over what will kill us, and when, than we'd like.

I'm sure that's especially disappointing for all the control freaks.


I personally like the guys who exercise and bicycle and do cardio like nuts and then one day their heart just... stops... while enjoying a light jog

CoRrUpTeDbUdGiE: low fat lacto-vegetarian. Thanks to the wonderful way my body can't cope with a lot of the fats/oils people take for granted, plus an egg allergy, the fact I've spent my life eating as little meat as possible has served me well. I could never get the hang of enjoying meat, plus, with all the health scares about meat produce, I wouldn't really miss anything I wasn't eating.
Fast food of any description is OFF. I am proudly bragging that it's been 3 years since I last had a cold. Up to that point, I'd allow myself a once a week portion of either chicken or fish.
My eyesight is perfect - in fact my distance viewing is better than 20/20 and while at some point in the future I may need to wear glasses for reading things, but, it's not urgent.
In fact, I'm the only member of the family that doesn't wear glasses...
the rest of the family are meat eaters.
Oh and yes, I do look younger than my age. I'm almost in my mid 40's and I can still get away with looking how I did in my 20's (including that bit where I used to have to produce ID before getting served with booze & cigs - both of which I've give up.)
Best compliment was 'But you're too young to have a teenage daughter!'



Well let's see. I haven't had a cold or the flu in over thirty years, my eyesight was 20/15, I need glasses for the small stuff now (old eyes). I eat meat (YUM BACON) a couple of times a week, love butter, cheese, etc. I could lose 10 pounds but I figure why? I don't look my age either, I credit that and my health to good genes and moderation!
But if you want to think it's because you are a 'Low fat lacto-vegetarian' more power to you?

snowybunting: I'm not taking advise on eternal youth from a 29 year old. Shown me someone who's 175, bicycles 25 miles a day, bangs whores all night, and only eats dog assholes, then MAYBE I'll listen to them and change my diet. Until then, I'll stick with what got me this far.


I was with you until the bit about the dog assholes, then you completely lost me.

bratface: I'm lacto vegetarian because my body cannot handle the consumption of animal fat without making me seriously ill, also, I'm very allergic to eggs.
But, I'm guessing it's all down to good genes. I pretty much share my fathers eyesight. I've a few grey hairs, but nothing to warrant use of hair dye (after spending 20 blonde, and 10 years black, it's time to give the dye a rest while I'm in and out of hospital)
Moderation is everything - small regular portions rather than competitions level dinners against the clock. I just wish I could eat everything, but with knowing now I'd get horrendously ill, it's not worth it. Pretty much learned how to cook around myself and it's obviously working (a bit too well).
Obesity doesn't really run in the family either.
If we have good genes, then so be it.

I heard about stuff like this in the 60's and 70's, especially when Guru's from India were the fad and all knowing and full of universal wisdom and quick to grab a buck.

The diet itself? It can't actually hurt you. These days, you just need to be concerned about bacterial contamination that cooking would normally kill. It may be good for you, so long as you monitor your protein intake. It certainly will keep you slim -- but even then, you need to monitor fat intake. You body needs a certain amount of fat to process foods.

You can actually starve by eating nothing but lean meats and no fats. Woodsmen know it as 'Rabbit Starvation' because eating a diet of rabbits and greens in the wild, with rabbits being real lean, can make you sick. To get the necessary fat, you're supposed to eat the rabbits brains, liver, heart and even crunch up and eat the bones.

Keeping you young? Well I know a lot of hippies from the 60's who went all out for these diets and are old and leathery today, just like everyone else.
However, on the plus side, her diet is like drinking a fruit and vegetable smoothie. Those are good for you. So is V-8 juice. Any of the drinks from juice bars are fine along with the 'natural' mixes sold in grocery stores that have no preservatives added or additional sugars or salts.

I like to knock back carrot juice myself, often mixed with tomato juice and frequently added to V-8. However, I dined on some fine pork ribs last night, make a mean deep fried battered onion and love hamburgers.

Juicing or smoothies are cool. You just need to blend the contents to taste. Juicing tends to remove the majority of the solids. However, you can freeze those and add them to soups and stews later -- though they're nearly tasteless.

Besides, consider India, one of the filthiest nations on the globe where the folks still insist on bathing in the Ganges River -- the Holy Waters -- which is one of the most polluted on Earth. They even tend to 'bury' people in it -- and have a whole cast of ghouls who salvage the corpses and eat them. Not to mention that it's also their favorite toilet.

I have a problem accepting dietary advice from people who will drink and wash in cow p*ss, drink spoiled milk from bowls spread around a temple for rats -- while the rats are drinking and often use human excretement for crop fertilizer.

Though, as I said, her blended diet can't hurt you, is actually healthy but do not expect miracles from it.

JonnyG: Well, eating cooked foods is not exactly natural. It just tastes better.


We've been eating cooked foods for our entire history as a species. It's natural for us. Raw food veganism has to be the most tedious of all food nuttery.

Oh, even better.  I as expecting a high rez shot from ten feet away with a tablespoon of Vaseline on the lens.
Instead you post two blurry ten feet away pics that obscure your face and body.  It was all I was expecting and more!

You look 40.

I'm 40 (well, 39 for another few months), in those pics she looks ten years older than me.  And no offense, Budgie, but with all of those ailments, it doesn't sound like you have "good genes".

Yeah, I meant that more as a "You look your age or more but not a day younger." sort of comment.
I'm guessing by "I could pass for in my twenties" she means she's really vacuous and obnoxious.  Pretty standard for the 40 year-olds I've met who claim they could pass for twenty years younger.  Insufferable, all of them.  Same as the groan worthy teens who say "OMG people like, totally think I'm older.  Like, they think I'm like twenty-five 'cause I'm so mature."

It's difficult to tell in those pics, one she's covering her face, the other it's only mostly obscured, shadowed and at night.  But if I saw her at that distance, wearing what she's wearing, walking with a cane, I'd assume she was older than I am.

But when you say things like "yes, I do look younger than my age. I'm almost in my mid 40's and I can still get away with looking how I did in my 20's" and then post pics, they should actually be in evidence of that and not the opposite.

I know I dislike you in the space threads, but I will say that when life extension becomes possible, it will be because of high tech genetic manipulation and chemistry, not eating the right foods. If it were that easy, mankind would have hit on it thousands of years ago.
