3. Don't eat or drink anything that hasn't been consumed for at least 1000 years. I have read a lot about blue zones where there are clusters of people living over 100. One thing they have on common is natural foods not the processed crap. A great example is Okinawa. Blue zone for the old. Highest rate of diabetes and obesity for young and middle aged. Okinawa has the highest percentage per capita of fast foods joints in Japan.
And Sardinia...

Sardinia is interesting because it is the only blue zone where men are more likely to be over 100 than women. Why do you think that is?

Young men lying about their age to dodge the draft? That, not yogurt, was the reason there were so many centenarians in Armenia in the 1960s.

A lot of factors I presume.
Booze, fat meat and cheese, low density population, less pollution, less stressful life,more community bonding

Hi fellow middle age guys. BCAA (branch chain amino acid) question here. I have these sups and take them once or twice a week during the end of my workouts. I've seen some guys in here saying they are garbage and do nothing really. In my mind, they seem to be working, especially after muscle pulls, strains, or injury.

What do you armchair health gurus think?

One big thing I've noticed staring down the barrel of 50 is it being nearly impossible to exercise and do heavy labor for work simultaneously. My winter job this past year had me weighing in the low mid 160 lb range, 10+ hours of heavy labor outdoors 5 days a week. Leading up to this winter I've gotten my weight back up to 180 lb range, sort of swole from lifting, relaxing, sleeping. Deep sleep is THE most important facet of maintaining a minimal chronic pain lifestyle
Are you doing any active recovery work? Just basic stuff like side bends, contra-lateral raises, or even just walking around are very beneficial if you work a physically strenous job. Here's a great routine from Iron Wolf that I posted on another thread, enjoy.

Here's the recipe if over 30 years:

1. IGF-1
2. NAD+
3. PQQ
4. DHEA
5. Green Tomato Extract (weirdly it helps proper DNA-RNA formation)
http://tst.pg2 .at/abstracts/data/full_papers/full_paper_74.pdf
6. HMB
7. If you have an overall lack of energy then Cordyceps with Coenzyme Q-10 and Kettle Bells.
8. Spirulina with all of the above. Especially if over-weight.
9. L-Citrulline or L-Aginine.

I can lift far more than most guys half my age. It is a good recipe to build with. Like 410lbs pull downs 10x.
