JonnyG: Well, eating cooked foods is not exactly natural.


Actually, for humans it is. We've been cooking our food for over half a million years. It's why we have such small teeth and jaws, such short intestines (for an omnivore of our size) and such huge brains. Cooled food provides 20% more nutrients than raw food and takes a lot less energy to digest. Ergo: we can take the body mass we used to devote to mastication and digestion and use it for brains.

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!'

You look about as "20s" and this chick looks "16".
I await the blurry, far off black and white Myspace angle pic you'll post as evidence.

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.

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.

Also, the need for reading glasses in one's 40s has nothing to do with diet and exercise. If a person's distance vision is "better than 20/20" then due to the natural structural changes in the crystalline lens, near vision will necessarily be affected. I hear jokers every day brag about how they don't need reading glasses, and it turns out they either don't read, turn the mag up on their monitors, or hold everything 2 feet away.

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?"

Ayep. We've evolved to eat cooked food, and on the plus side, cooking, as he mentioned, increases nutrient and calorie uptake.  There's nothing intrinsically wrong with the 'raw' diet, but if it precludes meat, she's going to have a similar problem to many vegetarians in obtaining certain key vitamins. Especially if she doesn't eat beans (have to cook them) and tofu (fermented, and usually cooked).

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.


My grandmother always said never to trust a fat doctor or a thin chef.

Do women age differently in the UK or something?  Because every time there's one of these types of stories, where some woman talks about how she's often mistaken for someone ten years younger, they always look to me like their actual age.  This girl looks like she's in her mid-to-late twenties, not sixteen.
