My massive health insight of the past week

In the past three years I

  1. have given up smoking
  2. have given up alcohol
  3. have given up artificial sweeteners
  4. no longer view sleep deprivation as heroism and get much more sleep than I used to
  5. have gone paleo (i.e. no sugars/starches, minimal carbohydrates and high fiber) in my diet

And while I haven’t stopped aging the signs of aging have more or less vanished.  I now think that aging, up to about fifty or so, should be viewed as your body not forgiving you for damaging it.
