Silly Health Myth #1

"People have to 'worry' in order to take care of themselves."

Who worries? I value my body enough to take care of myself but also know how to have fun too. I consume whatever I want. I live it up. I'd say that there are a few ruffled feathers over on the "Whats so cool about thin and trim people". But I wouldn't call that worrying either. More like the Banty Rooster Smackdown.

Um really, you needed to start almost the same exact thread over again? You already posted about the more pushin' for the cushion over on the twin post.

I'd rather spend the rest of my life living than dying or wondering if I am....

Food has been taken out of its normal context of family life and integrated culture. So we are obsessed with controlling it or overindulging. We move too fast to sit down, have a relaxed family meal that sets the right pace for eating. So we are out of whack. I think we need to get back to basics of cooking healthy satisfying meals and eating them in a family atmosphere. Not so much stress on being very thin, but healthy. The pressure to be a certain image is really destructive and i wish we could kick the millions of images out of our heads and just be real.

because dying of a heart attack when im 50 and decimating my family isn't nearly as cool as it sounds. I actually WANT to eat good, healthy food because I like feeling good. Eating refined scraps and the skeletal remains of actual food that were s_h!t out of an industrial machine sounds more like being a b than living it up. being flabby and shapeless, and continually turned down by attractive women also doesn't sound like living it up to me (that's not to say looks are everything, but if you're after a beautiful girl, you've essentially eliminated the ability to achieve a 'want'). i've also heard that exercising might actually prolong life, and definitely supports an increased functional capacity when aging. being bed ridden or losing sleep from the pain of sciatica and limiting what you experience in life because of the terrible condition of your body also doesn't sound much like living the high life.

get real

Who wants to live a long and boring life? I myself agree with Aquilles: let it be short but exciting . On the other hand, it's just what they say still to be proven by time, that if you do all the "healthy stuff" you will live longer. Remember margarine, chocolate, nuts, olive oil? They used to be very bad things, now they're good. Also, at the turn of the century, doctors recommended to be what for today standards is overweight. Well let's wait a couple decades and see where we stand. "Good" and "bad" are trendy concepts, which today more than ever are pushed by marketing and publicity, to which even medicine doctors succumb.
Go ahead, enjoy your life, do what you love, don't do what you dislike. Worse comes to worse, you won't survive to be over ninety, in a home, with a strong ticker and a poor mind and a burden to your loved ones.

Do you thing that i.e. smokers are "more expensive" to society than non smokers?, then you must believe that if you don't smoke you will never get any other disease and live in a perfect state of body and mind, and die at 101 in your sleep. Well...that's not true. Assuming that you can avoid (or delay) one disease will not exempt you from thousand of other possible unrelated ailments. And the longer you live as an elderly person, as healthy as you think you may be, you will still need to see doctors and buy prescriptions, so everything is a trade-off.
And if you don't believe me, here's an example, with numbers and statistics (unfortunately I cannot add a direct link, so please, cut and paste the following website):

"Isabella, the Chic-Geek says:
As long as you pay for your own heath care costs and don't expect society to fund your self inflicted diseases."

"Isabella, the Chic-Geek says:
So, you have no problem with 2/3 of the population being fat or obese now and moving toward 100%?"
Is the problem the rise in obesity or the people themselves?
"Evidently being fat also affects brain function."
Evidently some people's perception of people that are obese affects logic overall lol.

Exactly. If we keep going at this rate Slim Jims and Bacconators are going to be contraband lol. I would think fanatically obessing about health might also shorten life but to each their own unless we want:
