I don't think it's fatalism to acknowledge that many of us have diseases that can't be cured but can perhaps be controlled. I have two of them, asthma and hypertension.
My growing suspicion is that conscious weight-loss may not be the answer for anything. I'm not even sure that it's helpful for the morbidly obese.
To date, I'm aware of no clinical study that shows weight-loss increasing longevity. On the other hand, there is evidence that weight-loss decreases longevity.
I suspect that, end the end, we'd all be healthier and happier if we stopped trying to lose weight.
That's interesting stuff Dream. I'm currently pursuing a high amino acid diet to see if I can get some of the natural benefits, and that might help my body release some of my own natural made HG. This coupled with a regimented workout/weights and cardio routine for better health.
I've always been in decent shape but lately I've had this little tire in the mid section that just wont go away.
I'll let you know about how it's going.
Also have you heard anything about deer antler velvet? I'm going to try some soon.
