I'm going to layout all my issues as i'm looking for hope/help starting a CR diet. I'm morbidly obese at 335 lbs and my body is falling apart. Recently I've had a cardiac stent inserted, I've got major back problems, fatigue, stomach problems, and now I have nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) that's causing pain (pins needles) in my legs/arms. To say the least i'm not in great shape. Sometimes it's hard to find the will to go to work. It's a struggle just to do the basic things in my life like cooking, cleaning, and hanging out with kids and friends. Recently I've been reading a lot about following a CR diet to help repair the body in various ways, lose weight and extend your life. Mostly I just want to get healthy again, lose the weight and repair my nerve damage. I think a CR diet is the way to go because in my late 20's I went on a CR diet and lost 150 lbs.... for a period of time (about 2 years) I never felt better in my entire life. Unfortunately it didn't last and I put weight back on over the next several years. Fast forward 24 years and my body is a complete mess... I need to recapture my youth. Has anyone had experience rejuvenating their bodies using a CR diet?
