Default Screw diet!

Okey dokey...now I have your attention


Today we met a 78 y/o who was digging massive weeds from her garden with a garden fork, earlier in the day, spent around 5 hours in total doing hard graft. She mentioned another mutual friend that had planted a small handful of bulbs in her own mini garden and who as a result was tired afterwards.

The 78 y/o, though a celiac, eats a balanced diet, meat, veggies etc.
The younger 60 y/o is a vegetarian who eats mostly pasta, from what we gather and has always seemed tired throughout the past 15 years.

Whilst some vegetarians do understand the principles of how to balance their diets well, this one obviously doesn't and it shows in her continual lack of energy.



So, although the title states "Screw diet!" it was to highlight that diet is, to the contrary, very important.





I'm guessing this would have had more impact had it stated bodybuilder A and bodybuilder B; the entire point is it's still relevant.

Very relevant point.

Just as there aren't many individuals eating "normally" that can cook, there aren't many vegetarians who learn how to cook and balance their intake.

One thing I've learned from eating a low carb diet is that learning to cook, and learning how to combine what you can eat, is very important.

Did anyone ever see the episode of Dr. Oz (I think it was on Oprah though) where he goes around the world to areas where the average age of people was the highest? Balanced diet of natural foods, sense of belonging to community, active lifestyle, etc (I can't remember all of the markers), contributed to the happiest, healthiest, and longest life.

I just found the article version of it. He called in the "Blue Zones". It is where you find the largest numbers of people who live to 100 years old. The thing is that the people are also active, strong, and healthy. I remember him being in Costa Rica with this family in the jungle. It was wild to see like a 65 yr old granddaughter, at home with 90+ yr old grandparents. He showed how this old man tended his "yard". He used a machete to chop through the undergrowth. He even lifted the mans shirt to show the development of his muscles. He shows a 94 yr old heart surgeon, and a 103 yr old women using dumbells to work out in California, I found it definitely interesting.

A balanced diet don't just mean the food. It has to be balance with your activity's also.



Good post 5K.

Nice post Babs. And to Rich's point, this is huge. Eating for a job in construction is a whole different animal than if you work at a desk, even if you put a lot of time in at the gym.

Read Nutritional Degeneration by Weston Price. It's basically the same deal. He went out to find why the modern diet was producing such horrible teeth and found little incidences of many diseases among peoples who stuck to natural, unprocessed foods with little to no additives, etc.

Thx BTB.

Very true Rich & Brute. Your eating has to match your activity levels - whether work &/or physical activity.

I also liked the how the article emphasized stronger bonds with family/friends/community as well. I think these add a different sense of purpose to life.
