Dr Attia pointed this out as well in "Outlive". Pretty compelling data. Bill, based on your writing over the past years, I made some lifestyle dietary changes. I was 5'10" and 165lbs 3 mos ago. Not too bad. But started intermittent 12 - 13 hours fasting and gave up evening (addicted) sweets and am down to 159 and feel even better. Dropped my second BP med (Norvasc). Who knows, maybe added a year or two to watch my grandson grow up! Thanks Bill !

Real, whole food is something I miss about living rurally. It's why I make my own bread and had I been able to stay out there longer, grow more of my own veggies and possibly corn. Having fresh eggs available cheaper than the grocery store was key as well and was going to do my own flock of chickens. Getting off of the highly processed stuff was key to my health and it's something I'm nudging my partner to as well.
