months ago about a black female bodybuilder who looked fantastic at age 70.
80%+ of your body composition is diet. I'm 52, and I too watch as my friends age, get paunches. I have one facing a hip replament that I beleive is
preventable. They just get fatter. Makes me sad.
1. Doctors don't know everything. Most of their post school education comes from drug companies. 99% of them don't know squat about nutririon except
to parrot back "hearthealthywholegrains", "lowfatlowcholesterole" garbage.
2. Diet. Diet Diet. Real food. Grassfed meat. Chickens raised on pasture and thier eggs. Properly raised vegitables and some fruit. Berries. No sugar.
No grains. No cokes. No vegitable oils or margarine. Use coconut oil, beef talolow that you render yourself or real butter from grassfed cows. You get
the point. REAL food.
3. Movement. Walking. Resistance excersize (lifting heavy things). I'm not talking about 5lb pink weights. I mean HEAVY. I've seen women older than
me lift what I can lift. This also strengthends bones. Go to someone and learn to lift without hurting yourself.
4. Don't run. Waste of time and damaging to the heart. The heart needs variable beating. Running causes a non-variable beat, and that's not good.
Ever wonder why those seemingly healthy young people drop dead of heart attacks when running? If you want to run, sprint 20 seconds on and 10 seconds
off for 4 minutes 3x/week.
5. NSAIDS. Just don't. Especially Ibuprofen. Extremly bad for the heart.
6. Statin drugs. Another don't. There is no connection between heart disease cholesterol. That was all based on a fraudulent study by Ancel Keys in
7. Sunshine. Do that. Don't burn though. Suppliment with vitamin D3 to get a level of 40ng/ml at a minimum. I keepmine around 60ng/ml. With this take
vitamin K2 complex. This will keep the calcium that the D3 make more bioavaiable in the bone instead of soft tissue. This is why women have caught up
with men in heart disease. They all take calcium for their bones and they lack K2, so the excess calcium goes to soft tissue like their arteries...
Do this. Change today. Then as the years go by, watch all your friends get fatter and more infirm while you are 52 like me and still feel literally
like a 25 year old.
