this is another one of those **** im getting old moments. people you looked up to, favourite athletes, artists, uncles, aunts are all passing away. didn't know dmx, but me and my friends spent hours and hours listening to his music, watching his movies, analyzing the lyrics and continued listening to his music as soon as he became irrelevant post 2010.
ive seen too much health related suffering in the last year which has basically motivated me to push myself to eat healthy and stay active as much as possible. i did go on a takeout food binge on the long weekend but will correct it all this week.
Glad to hear it. I went off junk food (cookies and chips) for a few months, and was getting my blood checked regularly. Then I binged for a few days, had my bloodwork done a few weeks later, and there were poor results (hs-CRP - i.e. cardiovascular inflammation). Went cold turkey for another six months and my numbers came back to normal, or even better than before. So I've given up cookies and chips for good. Never again. I pass by those aisles in the supermarket without even a hint of temptation. Once you see how sugar and deep fried (w/ seed oil) carbs tangibly hurt your body, why would you eat them?
But resistance training and cardio (HIIT) are equally, if not more, important than diet. I can't wait until the gyms are reopened.
Actually, the two most important ingredients to health and longevity are 7-8 hours of sleep per night, plus some sun exposure during the day (Vit. D).
