    Nuts and Mortality

    This is false just because you say so? Interesting. I also made an assertion with nothing backing it up, and you could say that doing so might have been intellectually lazy but just because you aren't convinced yet, i'm going to reply with a response that has more meat on it so to speak. The wiki article that i'm referencing gives the ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3, and like my post presupposes, directly states that one shouldn't get too high of a ratio of omega 6 to omega 3's. It also mentions that the typical american diet actually does have way too many omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. Furthermore, as I said earlier, the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in nuts is listed in a convenient table, and the table says that this can be 2 or 300 hundred omega 6 fatty acid ratio to omega 3's. I like nuts just as much as you do, buddy, but this article shows exactly why they might not be a great pick if you're worried about nutrition. I can also find further sources if you don't like wiki, so just post again if i need to do that and have read all of the above elsewhere as eating nuts will upset the ideal ratio that many nutriotionists prescribe, thanks Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatty_acid_ratio_in_food#Optimal_ratio_of_omega-6_to_omega-3_fats

    Nuts and Mortality

    The thing with nuts is that the fats contained are all omega-6, and it's generally seen as a good thing to get fewer amounts of omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids. I dont see nuts as being a magic bullet to health but definitely deserve to be part of a balanced diet.

    Whole Body Vibration Therapy for Bone Health

    Dude, just lift weights and the added muscle will stimulate bones that are more dense.
  4. Thanks for the post. Most hunter gatherers are always moving and have to work a lot harder for their food than people in industrialized societies and that's why obesity is unknown to them. If they ate more then they'd gain weight just like anyone else. It also seems that I have a lot of painful work of going down from a 23 BMI to a 20, but with a will anything is possible. Thanks for the replies, guys. 🙂
  5. In terms of exercise I concentrate on muscular endurance. Every day I do 4-5 sets of kb swings, and then 20 other sets of lower body exercises all using high reps often 2-300 or 1000, the latter for exercises with a very low level metabolic exertion. I also use my rowing machine 2x a day, and burn 400 calories each time. So I get quite a bit done. I realize that the protein load is kind of high but I'll also feel bad if I decrease that amount, so I suppose that I'm good with it. For my diet I'll have 4-5 eggs for breakfast, and usually eat a couple of cans of tuna for lunch. Then I'll have dinner which gives me the majority of my calories for the day. Ill also have some frozen vegetables. So my diet is pretty close to the carnivore style if that makes any difference. My BMI is 23.2 from the app I just downloaded. Btw, is there a preferred method to calculate bmi? And would that have a particular name for the process?
  6. Has anybody done CR while also having a heavy exercise load? I'm 6'1, and my weight goal is to dial it down to 170. I've had a few cardiac issues in the past but the thing is that I feel a lot better when my weight is low and I regularly include aerobic exercise, so I'm trying to make that work with CR. I'm getting about 125 grams of protein and around 2000 calories a day but I'm sure I'll have to bring those calories down some to reach my weight goals. Would 1700 cals sound like a healthy CR plan for someone that needs to lose just a few more pounds?
