Fvck you. Read this sh1t again .Mid 40s, early to mid 20s is my norm.
I’m not convinced aging has to do with aging chronologically as much as it does with adopting a healthy lifestyle. Smoking, drinking, eating non-organic meats filled with hormones and pesticides, not eating sufficient veggies/fruits, not physically working out or doing cardio, excessive drugs, self-prompted stress and then things beyond your control such as pollution, second hand smoke, gases, chemicals/poisons in products—all these things AGE you.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle based on things you can control will keep your aging at bay for a very long time.
Diet and exercise alone is sufficient to keep you in the race longer than most could conceive.
Our bodies were meant to survive a very long time. 17th century English life expectancy was 35 yo. That number has skyrocketed in the 20th century and today’s average life expectancy is around 72 yo.
Technology is advancing exponentially, and IMO with stem cell research and other advances, we should see life expectancy rise to 150 yo in the next few centuries.
What does this have to do with the man wall? Well that too is getting pushed. And I and a few others in the forum are outliers to the rule simply because we adopted certain healthy lifestyle choices.
Skin does not need to sag or lose texture and is a
choice. Musculature (the breaking down and reforming of stronger vital proteins) is a choice. Staying lean is a choice. Running a healthy lifestyle is a choice.
Aging is simply not loving your own body enough to make the “sacrifices” necessary to keep you healthy. This lack of love reflects in your appearance and rightfully so because if you cannot love yourself (your body), why should another, then, love you?
Nature is fair IMO.
