The study I quoted compared two groups of people hitting the same calories having significantly different health results. There is a heck of a lot more research on this than the one study I quoted.

Personally I don't see the point in diet/exercise if the goal isn't to improve overall health, both short term and long term. And if that's the goal, the why not figure out how to maximize both?

In my own case, after years of sedentary lifestyle raising a family and building a company, at age 56 I've reversed high triglycerides, high cholesterol, and diabetes and have gone from getting winded leaving the Q after a game to doing high intensity interval training 2 hours/day.

I still have a ways to go to get to where I want to be, so I continue to refine things on the nutrition side to get there. I was in the best shape of my adult life when I was about 30, I plan to be in better shape than that at 60. And I intend to reverse my high blood pressure, the last thing I was on medication for before I started making changes last year.
Congratulations! Sounds like you are on a great path, my friend!

I understand what point you are trying to get across, maybe it could be summed up — in regards to diet/exercise — is there are many, many options. Your deeper thought(s), is what i have spent that last several years researching — are there more optimal “diets”(specific food types)/protocols for optimal overall health?

Thoughts/experiments of intrigue for me personally:

- animal products (proteins/cholestoral/fat soluable vitamins and minerals)of the highest quality as the greatest source of nutrition, specifically for the human body.

-Fruits/Vegetables and bioavailability in the human body. Can plant sourced foods be digested efficiently and how much are/can we absorbe?

-In what decade were we the healthiest and what were the primary sources of food?

I’ve been reading The Longevity Diet by Valter Longo and am learning a lot from it. Here’s a ted talk he gave

Has anyone here used CBD?

If so, for what symptoms and what was the effectiveness?

I know several of the Tour PGA players are using it now.

I use a CBD (KUSH 2 GO) drink that has 60mg of 99.3% CBD.
We just got it in the gym, and I did a hard workout on the turf (battle ropes, tire flips, etc) and took 1/2 of the drink (which is the recommended dosage). It is very relaxing, so I’ve learned not to take it if I have to work after a hard workout.

It’s also beneficial if you have trouble sleeping. So I use it more for sleeping.

How does it compare to melatonin?

Aright here's some junk math.

I didn't get my weight before I jumped on. When I stopped cutting I was at 191 and dbol. At my heaviest here I was at 204. I'm off that and at 197 now.

So let's say 7 lbs was from water and glycogen from orals. So I wasn't at 191, I was at 184 without orals starting out. Puts me up 13 lbs? Maybe a few glycogen and a few fat.. 8 lbs? In 8 weeks? And I still have abs. That's decent

I think I'm going to extend this

I can't believe I'm not bigger. I eat 4500 calories a day and that's way way over my tdee. I should at very least be fat as fuck

Melatonin does nothing for me. I tried 5mg dose and was still up during the night. I upped it to 10mg and it gave me nightmares and then the worst headaches for the next day and a half.

7 weeks into changes with my eating and physical activity habits (and medication) after putting off high blood pressure for too long (not to mention being significantly overweight). Lost 30 lbs and the past week or two my blood pressure has been consistently better than my goal BP from my physician.

My changes mostly just involved tracking calories and macros on MyFitnessPal (esp. sodium), having a much better ratio of whole foods & home cooking vs. processed foods & takeout/fast food, doubling the walking I already do, and doing some HIIT for 10-15 minutes most days.

I anticipate the weight loss to slow down a lot (and totally fine with that), but hope to lose another 30 lbs by next summer.

I just don't get it. Down to 186 and I can lose 5.i do seem much bigger than before I started that cycle though.

Fuck this is nuts. I'm happy with how I look though.

5 weeks out from another one. Finally working legs hard and I like it.

Cutting for a couple weeks and then going to try a long cycle, starting with noo or deca and finishing with teen.

188, 12%.

Idk I just think my genetic limit is lower than a lot of people. I'm never ever going to be 250. I didn't weight myself before that last cycle but maybe I put on and kept 6 lbs and I went hard and ate right and worked out hard and didn't rush cutting.

Anyone in here a certified personal trainer?

I was approached by the district that I work in to pursue a certification. I would use it mostly to assist with football training in the offseason. I’m also thinking about using it to train some clients at the gym I currently work out at. Is the money worth it? Are classes difficult? Any tips/info would be appreciated
