Whoa, are you on statins and/or blood pressure meds? those are great numbers. How did you do it?
Hi... No I practise calorie restriction, at first glance it might seem that my low numbers could be caused by some disease, but I have no diseases or anything that caused these low numbers. CR is the only known way to retard bioligical aging in all animal, you restrict calories by 30% it makes the animal live 30% longer and so on...
I got these numbers by eat healthy and restricting my calories to 1800k/cal a day. Calorie Restriction is universal in its benifits as I mentioned earlier on. I got very little response when I shared this with this section of the forum, probably because CR would be difficult to do, especially for life. CR has a rejunvenating effect on the heart and it prevents primary aging not just secondary.
Please take a look at this very recent study, our members at CR Society took part in this study.
"This decline in diastolic function is a marker of primary aging," Fontana said. "Diastolic function declines in most people as they get older, but in this study we found that diastolic function in calorie-restricted people resembled diastolic function in individuals about
15 years younger."
"People in the study averaged only six years on the diet, but their hearts looked 15 years younger. So Fontana said it's possible that the diet has a rejuvenating effect."
You can read the rest at the link I gave you.
A very high majority of us that do calorie restriction have very good health markers, changes happen farily quickly... If you are interested I can share some links with you to Videos or articles on it.
this is a typical day for me:
