    sex-restriction and longevity

    I propose that any relation between sex and longevity is more due to sex's effect on stress (distress, specifically, as opposed to eustress) than sex per se. That is, if having sex makes one feel less stressed about life, then it would not be a surprise that having sex is correlated to longevity. It would be more accurate to say that being less stressed is associated with longevity.

    sex-restriction and longevity

    Opening the pandora's box. Tread carefully. http://www.actualfreedom.com.au/sundry/frequentquestions/FAQ24a.htm RICHARD: Yes, the sex drive is an instinctual drive ... and, along with other instinctual urges, can be eliminated entirely. Then one is free to act appropriately according to the circumstances and not out of an instinctual reaction. Instincts are not set in stone, they are simply ‘blind nature’s’ way of ensuing survival. With our thinking, reflective brain we can improve on nature in this respect, as we have done in so many other ways. Any instinctual drive can be eradicated. Then one is free to enjoy the sexual act as a physical, sensual pleasure (not as an emotional or passionate ‘solution’ to loneliness and sorrow via love) or free to enjoy celibacy as an idiosyncratic celebration of singularity (not as a dispassionate or detached way to dissolve the ego via craftiness). It is then an act of free choice to have sex, or not have sex, just as easily in either alternative. No drive means no urge. With no urge there is nothing to have to deny, nor anything to have to indulge. Thus it is neither ‘Asceticism’ nor ‘Hedonism’ ... this is an actual freedom.

    The thread on keto (and low carb) diet

    Speaking of which, there is a specific variation of keto called Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet, which is basically 2:1 fat:protein ratio (in grams) including animal foods only (some people can include minor amount of low-carb plants). https://www.reddit.com/r/PaleolithicKetogenic/ https://www.paleomedicina.com/paleolithic-ketogenic-diet/ An average person can live off on no more than 400g of meat per day, which is interesting from CR perspective. In fact, I'm in the process of transitioning from a carnivore diet to this one currently.

    CR with ZeroCarb

    But I don't see any evidence (even if anecdotal) of the carnivore diet ending badly for anyone. Some people are doing it for over 20 years even without organ meats (which are supposed to address the nutrient deficiencies). I have arrived at the conclusion that our dietary understanding has a bit of plant-bias.

    CR with ZeroCarb

    I wonder if Joe Rogan has addressed these criticisms in any of his podcasts with carnivore diet people. I could not find much info addressing the Inuit criticism on the internet either. Lately I discovered the coffee is a trigger, especially if I have more than 1-2 cups a day. So going coffee-free. Trying to introduce white basmati rice with coconut cream as I love it ....

    CR with ZeroCarb

    Yea, but the question I have is - how does the Anderson family[1] do well eating nothing but ribeyes (not event salt or added fat) for the last 20 years?

  7. I posted a query on carnivore way of eating here: https://www.crsociety.org/topic/16838-cr-with-zerocarb/ Even though it doesn't adhere to CRON I generally felt welcomed in this community. I wasn't censored. I noticed that pretty much every "carnivore" community (on reddit, facebook, etc.) were pretty unwelcoming to any conversation around introducing non-carnivore foods. This makes genuine discussions around elimination diet or even idiosyncratic conditions where say a low-fat vegetarian would be better than high-fat carnivore (like those twin girls who healed their skin on the former) impossible. These carnivore communities act like echo chamber reinforcing beliefs and ejecting any one that says against their beliefs. So thank you for not repeating their mistakes!

    CR with ZeroCarb

    So I'm still on ZeroCarb. Recently quit coffee (switched to tea) and my skin went from 90% to 99% clear. What sort of health plant foods would you all recommend that I introduce now? I assume grains are off the limits? In the past when I "cheated" I used to go straight for pleasure foods like ice cream and biscuits, but this time I want to do it properly! :-)

    CR with ZeroCarb

    Thank you for chipping in! I see that you practice CR while losing weight. Do you think you'll continue to practicing CR with raw meat eating after achieving normal body weight? My main concern would be being able to keep a stable weight despite eating once a day because meat can be difficult to chug down the throat.

    CR with ZeroCarb

    I'm back! Sorry, I had no idea that my post had received replies until I stumbled across it when searching Google for "omad site:crsociety.org". mccoy - I appreciate all that info, thank you! I'm doing ZeroCarb only because it cures my chronic folliculitis (originally triggered by use of antibiotics about 4 years ago) 95%. Whenever I cheated my folliculitis returned in vengeance (I was cheating with hedonic foods like ice cream, poutine, chocolate, ..). My ZeroCarb diet has stabilized now (i.e., no more periodic cheating), so I'd like to reintroduce foods one at a time (I think nuts are off, sadly, but I'll re-check). Then perhaps I'd try CR+OMAD with the second plan (keto) mccoy suggested. In any case, I'll let you all know. Carbohydrates are easier to consume than hunting for reliable fat sources.

    CR with ZeroCarb

    (I searched for this information in vain before deciding to post this) Is anyone here practicing CR while eating ZeroCarb? What about CR+ZeroCarb+OMAD? Basically eating once a day, and just eating meat in that sitting. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I eat ZeroCarb (occasionally OMAD) but I'm considering adding CR to it for health (and thus longevity) reasons.
