Obviously most of you are fat, ugly shambles who look about 10 years older than your actual age and will die well before the average life expectancy.

I plan on living until I'm at least 100 which will be decent coming from one of the worst places in Scotland for life expectancy. Think it's about 38 or summin.

I was actually gonny start a thread about nutritional yeast, which i recently discovered, but seemed a bit narrow. It's fuckin awesome though. Like a nutty, slightly cheesy flavor and it's pure good for you.

What do you pricks do to try and maximize your life or do you generally naw gie a fuck as your life is that shit anyway death will come as a bit of a relief?

I always get my 5 a day, more like 8 probs. Drink at least 3 litres of water and exercise at least 4 times a week but usually more if we include walking 2-3 miles.

I don't eat much shit but can binge from time to time. Going for an indian tonight, actually, although Indian's are fuckin' shit here, so I'm by no means really strict on my diet but it's definitely top 20%, i'd say.

I also take omega oil supps, a B12 supp, zinc for extra spunk, a multi vit with iron and creatine every day.

I take Multi vitamins, fish oil, Choline and Mucana.

Try and drink 2-3 litres of water a day, drink green tea and Chomile tea, watch what I eat, excercise (well I try).

I quit smoking completely last year and havent touched tobacco in about 10 months, that alone should help.

Also, I try and keep my mind active after seeing what dementia has done to my grandma, hence the fish oil etc.

Oh and I also do deep breathing excercises and have been doing excercises for sleep apnea.

What's the choline and mucana for, mate?

Never heard of them?

You feel they benefit you?

I dunno if the shit I take actually works, how do you tell...except the multivit with iron. I definitely notice that helps me with energy. I think it's the iron more than the vit though. If i don't take it for a while I feel myself being extremely tired driving home from work. Like, literally dozing at the wheel tired but i don't get this at all when i take it every day.

I think the zinc helps a bit with test levels but i'm basing that on spunking a wee bit more.

What time do you eat in the morning? I typically only eat from 1pm to 7pm. Not as strict on the weekends but during the week it is.
That's a fucking awesome effort tbf. I'm 9-6.

I was of the opinion that raw vegetables was ok after six for a long time, too, but that seems also to be bullshit. But it does mean you have to force all those green in through the day. No point in feeding windows if all you're cutting out is the stuff that helps you.

It's all probably for nothing tbh and i am still quite a heavy drinker, but i for sure feel a lot better these past few years.

I work out 5-6 days a week, and cut down on the carbs a lot. Not keeping them at a certain intake level, but avoiding them for the most part unless I'm going out or...feel like it. That's about it though. I still drink too much. Did quit smoking again though.

I basically just skip breakfast, man. Easy peasy. You adapt quick as fuck too. I literally don't feel hungry until about 30 mins before i normally eat. Even when i tried only eating from 6pm-8pm, after a few days, i didn't feel hungry until just before i was due to eat. Your body is adaptive as fuck.

I still eat the same though. Like at 1pm i'll eat my breakfast (oats, protein, chia/flax seed) then my usual lunch. Dinner at around 6. So i just eat the same as i would if i ate breakfast at the normal time. I just give my body that 16-18 hours fasting time to recuperate and do whatever the fuck else it does when it doesn't need to process food.

I don't really drink that much any more, man. I'll still binge now and again but a few times a year rather than a few times a month since i moved here. Sometimes just have a random beer as a thirst quencher too but rarely.


Edit: I do have a screwdriver most sunday mornings, actually.

I spend too much time in the sun with no protection though. Probs the stupidest thing I do. Putting on sunscreen is just such a cunt though.

That's interesting.

I don't think it could work for me. I work basically in three innings and two of them are before lunch. I'm a fucking idiot when i'm hungry. I struggle. I'm a bit older than you and probably heavier so it might just be a blood sugar thing. But honestly I start confusing people and everything it's ridiculous and because I work in three different sectors I need to keep that straight. Might give it a bash at the weekend though.

Is fasting that long, good? I was under the impression, it's better to eat small bits more often throughout the day?

Eitherway, i'm getting a dominos tonight which will be my 6th takeaway in the last couple of weeks.

Exercising has gone to fuck as well.....

Hard to tell if it's even worth it anyway. I'd guess just having a healthier diet is always going to be better than any slight benefits from the times you eat. The 1-7 suits me though. I only miss milk in my tea in the mornings but my mornings tend to be meetings solid from around 9-1130 so i'm always busy then i go a walk and come back to eat. To even eat before that i'd have to make an effort to make time. I have to walk as early as i can before it gets too hot and i'm sitting in work like a sweaty bastard.

I think the benefits of IF are pretty conclusive at this point, man. I aint here to espouse it though. Like i said to McGraaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiin, just a simple healthy diet is going to benefit you more than anything else.

And that "little and often" has basically been blown up at this stage too though it totally was the thing for ages.

My diet went to pot and fitness regime too. Body is just about hanging in there on the looking good aspect. I don't feel that bad, but my strength is at a poor level. Really want to kick on and get back into things health wise. Prepared meals are good, just snack too much and have not hit the weights in a very long time.

The avoiding breakfast did work well for me, I'd replace it with fruit and lean meats. Those are what I'd snack on most of the time, plus nuts and seeds.

Multivitamins are actually bad for you if you have a remotely decent diet. If you literally lived off crisps, oven chips and takeaway pizza then it would be worth it, however not only is there zero evidence that multivitamins are good for people with normal diets (never mind decent diets) the available data actually shows that they have a negative impact on health.

The entire industry is a sham.

This is really interesting article on the origins of this crap and it provides some links to large studies that show the flaws behind it...

These cunts don't know what they're on about I don't think.

There was a guy on Joe Rogan he said that almost every living thing from algae up has its life extended by calorie restrictions in feeding windows. But the same guy said fuck all about tanning loads of whisky four nights a week so swings and roundabouts.

Yeah, I got gallstones a couple of years back and talk about calorie restrictions...do you fuck eat anything when you have those bastards. So I was taking multi-vitamins then but otherwise what's the point? I guess they'd be good if you were fasting.
