Some great info, I've read about half of the pages so far. Lots of disagreement, but still some good nuggets I think.
I wonder if anyone has asked about, or has info on Human Growth Hormone (HGH). If so, sorry, just have such limited time these days, but I'm curious
not just for the weight issue, but it seems to cover a long list of "age" issues too.
I'm not sure it's the proverbial "silver bullet", but Silvester Stallone seems to be going strong, and he's over 60 now. From the little I've
read so far about it, it also seems to be good for weight loss. Or maybe it just helps reactivate some "young" biochemistry or something.
Anyway, not to get off topic, for all I know, HGH points to a confirmation of the OP, since many replies seem to repeat that things were just fine in
younger days (same for me), but then things slow down, next thing you know, fatso is staring back from the mirror! Does the younger body process
insulin better? Probably. If it's insulin resistance that develops over time, then maybe age-related issues play their part.
I've heard HGH can be expensive, maybe some risks? But with all the money thrown at weight loss, maybe it's worth looking at.
My "intuition" is that it must be very important, because after I turned 40, it was like someone flicked a switch. Actually, it was more like some
joker pushed me off a cliff! Yeah, getting old sucks, but the fact that many people seem to experience the same thing, they turn 40, and Wham!
Weight gain issues are likely complicated, and very individual, but It's got to be more than just diet and exercise.
