    Over stimulation of mtor has shown to be bad for longevity. Excluding PEDs I'm starting to think the bodybuilding lifestyle is not good for you at all. I listened to a podcast from Ben Pakulski stating eating for performance and longevity are two different things. So do we need to pick one or the other??

    I'm afraid so but you can have a balance in my opinion. Digestion takes energy away from other things. That's why fasting for long periods have shown to have to some really good effects on even chemo patients going through treatment.
    I feel as though it has everything to do with lifestyle and genetics though. I've recently started fasting just because of this theory. There will come a day where I switch totally to longevity eating and training but right now...I'm getting yoked. Lol

    I guess nobody else gives a shit about health on this board. If I posted something like how much tren should I run , I would get a bunch of opinions. It's a shame because their are some really smart guys on this board.

    I dont think Dr Jim will respond because their probably arent enough studies to give a definate answer. A Dr. Usually doesnt give their opinion. I guess the only person that can give a educated opinion is @Docd187123 .

    I'm a big proponent of fasting. A few months ago I did a 3-day water fast and the results were impressive both mentally and physically. I would like to do another one, a longer one but I'm on EQ and I believe the hunger pains would kill me. To those of you that haven't tried it do some research online first and decide if it's right for you or not. I will certainly be incorporating it into by lifestyle from here on out.

    He's not a real doctor but does walk around in a lab coat. True story.

    No, I know hes not a real Dr. But he does geek out on alot of stuff, so maybe he does have a opinion on the subject. It would be nice if this board had a few experts on nutrition for longevity and how to balance it out with bodybuilding or sports.

    Anything taken to an extreme will more than likely be detrimental to longevity. Those same things within moderation will more than likely not be detrimental to longevity.

    It's been known for a while that bodybuilding for the vast majority of people isn't healthy. Surprised you just started to think this.

    Like @Docd187123 said, anything to the extreme tends to be unhealthy.

    Being passionate usually means taking it to the extreme.

    If longevity is TRULY your goal, take THAT to the extreme.

    Still a good chance you'll get hit by a bus or something though .
