    I quit smoking back in college and I never think about it unless my buddy brings me a nice Cuban cigar. I never did cigarettes but Cigars and a pipe were no problem for me to quit. I have gone cold turky off of oxycontin when my insurance was lost and I couldn't afford it. All those things were easy compared to Mountain Dew. I do purchase the natural sugar variants instead of the High Fructose crap though. It kinda makes you wonder if there is something in there that makes it hard to quit.

    Seems odd that real doctors would have the time for amateur videos. Chiropractic is voodoo. Something is going to kill us all. I plan to enjoy each minute to its maximum.

    I've looked high and low. And I know what works for one person isn't necessarily the best for someone else. But, to my reasoning, the approach of these guys seems to be on the right track & has made me feel WAY better (when I adhere to the protocols). Mostly vitamin/mineral-supplementation, intermittent fasting, & elimination of industrially-refined carbohydrates, coupled with high-nutrient food choices.

    To each his own. My medical doctor was the one who referred me to these authors books/videos.

    Yes. Aspartame is a neurotoxin.

    'Aspartame Is Made From Bacteria Feces, Patent Confirms'
    "... What makes diet sodas taste sweet without all the sugar? The simple answer is artificial sweetener, but a patent has confirmed what the commonly used sugar substitute aspartame is really made of: the feces of genetically modified E. coli bacteria..."

    My wife has been feeding me healthy for over 30 years, Diet Coke is my soda of choice, when I feel like it I will have as many beers as I like, I work outdoors, and this regime is working well for me, I may not have the energy of 25 years ago but I don’t feel the need to change anything, or I may become a statistic! Cheers Mitch

    Exactly. When I got out of the hospital they told me to avoid a long list of artificial sweeteners. Splenda is the only one that seems to be ok but I don't want to risk it. My daughter gave me some gum last week that had aspartame in it and I lost vision in my right eye for a bit until it wore off. Very bad stuff if you have any brain/nerve issues. Also it taste like shit anyway.

    I AGREE you should enjoy life every minute. Every day after middle-age is a GIFT. But for me, it's easier to ENJOY it when I'm feeling good instead of awful. You'll both understand when time finally takes it's toll on your body & you begin to get worried about 'what am I going to do..?'

    Quality-of-life is EQUALLY important as Length-of-life.

    If I live another 18 years and 3 months, I've made it to the average lifespan for males here. Maybe I'll make it, maybe not, but I sure don't want to know :)
    Happy new year!

    Im not sure "healthy living" is making us live any longer
    My great grands /grands or parents didn't have access to fresh veggies n stuff like that .....but they managed to go pretty far
    Perhaps moderation/awareness will extend the quality of our lives (the need for wheelchairs or oxygen ) ...but as for the time ,I think it's all about the same .
    If some damned disease , cancer ,MS,ALS ,or whatever creeps up on us ,there's not a lot we can do
    Im missing people everyday who should be "middle aged " with me , but they didn't make it

    Im happy to be among you....today

    As far as things go with what you can control, I've always read and agree with what most doctors claim...to live a long, healthy life, stick to these simple things:

    watch your waist line
    eat your fruits and veggies
    exercise
    watch your waist line
    don't smoke/use rec drugs/drink booze
    get rest
    watch your waist line
    take your vitamins
    watch your waist line

    I'm 50 and in the best shape of my life (always been fit/healthy though, I'm just at a crazy level right now from marathon training) and have always followed the above pretty closely (although I do have a sweet tooth and will indulge sometimes lol). That said, I'm sure someday I'll get done in a car accident or armed assault, etc...so like obi-plexi quoted, live it like it's over tomorrow!

    Yep. Too much Stress-Hormone is AS BIG a risk-factor as ALL the others, except unlike some of the other factors, you can CHOOSE to avoid the stressful situations most of the time...
