  • At my age should I stay on my diet or eat drink and be merry


  • #2
    Nowhere near your age, but I find my tastes and preferences change over time. When I realise certain foods or drinks (in excess) don't agree with me as they used to, I automatically develop an aversion. No need to force myself to 'give up' anything, with very few notable exceptions.

    Also, I agree that physical exercise becomes more important to keep fit, which is why I opted for a pedelec as my main mode of transportation.

      Members of the group are "right" about how they choose to live. It's their choice after all. That choice, however, has no bearing on how you choose to live. If you have a life plan (concerning diet, exercise, etc) that you are happy with, stay the course or modify it as you see fit. I'm surprised you need such advice, however, having reached 70 all by yourself.

        Physical activity is some thing that I have a Love Vs Hate relationship with . When I get up in the morning I'm thinking of all sorts of excuses why not to get on my treadmill but once I'm on it and my headphones are at full volume , then I love it

        I do miss my pre diet days and a glass or three of Red wine with a noggin of Blue Stilton cheese and buttered jacob's cream crackers.

          Your right reaching 70 ( without ever being admitted to hospital ) I should not be looking for advice , but I still have this nagging thought , could the thoughts of the majority be worth considering .

            Worth considering? Of course, but not under pressure. Their ridicule of your life choices is, at best, insensitive, even if such thoughtlessness is unintended. Ultimately, you know what's best for you.

                  Because, as many locals will attest, ignorance is bliss.

                    A little reading on a related subject:

                    The man who unlocked the world's secret to living to age 100 says you can skip the gym
                    by [email protected] (Hilary Brueck)





                    Dan Buettner, a continent-trekking cyclist and storyteller, figured out that the world consisted of at least five "Blue Zones," in the early 2000s. That's when he made the term, which was first coined by Belgian professor Michel Poulain, a household phrase in a best-selling cover story for National Geographic.

                    In this handful of hidden corners scattered across the globe, he discovered that people were sailing past the 100-year mark with surprising frequency, and often avoiding dementia.
                    People residing in these Blue Zones are outliving us because they have figured out what others have not, according to Buettner
                    Buettner reverse-engineered a "Blue Zone" in rural Minnesota, and people there lost four tons of fat


                    Buettner has successfully trialed this holistic approach in cities and towns across the US, with stunning success. In 2009, he piloted his first "Blue Zones Project" in Albert Lea, Minnesota. The goal was to reverse-engineer it into a Midwestern Blue Zone.

                    "If you want to live longer and be healthier, don't try to change your behaviors, because that never lasts for the long run," he said. "Think about changing your environment."
                    For Albert Lea, that meant the town of roughly 18,000 people was pushed to do more daily movement, with citywide changes that turned healthful actions into the simplest choices.
                    The city added 10 miles of sidewalks and bike lanes for its residents, and local businesses made it easier to pick and eat healthy food. People started walking more and creating their own strolling groups that hit the streets together, collectively shedding 4 tons of weight (an average of 2.6 pounds per person). Smoking went down by 4% during the first five years of the program.

                    "When I started four years ago, I had high cholesterol and high blood pressure," Albert Lea City Council Member Al Brooks told MinnPost in 2015, saying he started walking 2.5 miles a day since the city turned into a Blue Zone. "My cholesterol is lower, my blood pressure is 116/70, and I lost 15 pounds."


                    Buettner has now consulted with dozens of other "Blue Zone Project" cities around the US that are trying his "ecosystem approach" to health and longevity, and saving millions of dollars in health insurance costs in the process.
                    The city of Fort Worth, Texas, for example, reduced its smoking rate 6% after partnering with Buettner in 2013. Fort Worth now saves an estimated $268 million annually as a result of that one action alone.That figure doesn't even account for the tens of millions of dollars in other health care costs saved because of Blue Zone-inspired programs in the city.



                    But making it a habit to ditch smoking and move around throughout the day doesn't mean you should neglect eating the crunchy vegetables, beans, fresh herbs, and oils that are so popular in the Blue Zones. Instead, Buettner's eating advice aligns with what nutrition experts and dietitians consistently recommend.

                    He suggests formulating your diet around plants, including plenty of complex carbohydrates (like beans and whole grains) and making convenience snack foods, desserts, and trips to fast food joints the exception, not the norm.
                    "When it comes to longevity, there's no short term fix," Buettner said. "There's no pill or supplement or hormone. If you're not going to do something for years or decades, don't even bother with it."
                    Buettner's new "Blue Zones Kitchen" cookbook is filled with vegetarian recipes from each of the five Blue Zones, but he says you don't have to buy his tome to try out the eating technique. Instead, find "five or 10 recipes that you love." Then make those foods, along with some consistent, regular movement at home, an integral part of your daily routine. You can even get lazy and skip the gym.

                    "The secret to eating for 100 is to find the plant-based foods, heavy with beans and grains and vegetables, and learn how to like 'em," he said.

                      Overthinking most everything might be considered a promoted fabrication - very Farang.
                      Accepting the nature of things is clearly healthier.


                      Hedonism is not just a figment of our Kool-Aid drinking imagination.

                        Really? What else could it be?
