    Okay, I'll indulge...from what I have read, LaLanne was largely a vegetarian (Ornish-like) and ate lots of grains so saying he "didn't know what a CHO was" doesn't change the fact that the majority of his diet was made up of them. I couldn't care less about this, but touting him on a Paleo™ board is mildly humorous (ironic?) to me considering these points. He was also known to take over fifty "supplements" every day which is also against core Paleo™ belief systems, me thinks...
    Didn't mean to come across as a thread "Jacker". I was trying to point out that this guy worked out in a fasted state every day and practiced IF before it had a name. I think we get wrapped up in dogma and science and could learn a little from a man who lived to be 96 lifting weights and shunning processed foods.

      Maybe, maybe not.

      Counter point to this is that Jeanne Calment smoked for over a hundred years until she passed away at the age of 122. Just because she was active, cognitive, and lived until that ripe old age, I wouldn't recommend that anyone follows her lifestyle choices.

        For someone with a website proclaiming "No bro-science or dogma", you sure seem to spout both.

        Instead of lambasting Jack Lalanne and Jeanne Calmen, you should spend a little time dissecting them. From your link:

        "Calment's remarkable health presaged her later record. At age 85 (1960), she took up fencing, and continued to ride her bicycle up until her 100th birthday. Calment was still in good shape, and continued to walk until she fractured her femur during a fall at age 114 years 11 months (January 1990), which required surgery.[3][12]

        Calment smoked from the age of 21 (1896) to 117 (1992),[1][14] though according to an unspecified source, she smoked no more than two cigarettes per day.

        Calment ascribed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance for her age to olive oil, which she said she poured on all her food[4] and rubbed onto her skin, as well as a diet of port wine, and ate nearly one kilogram of chocolate every week.[11]"


        1KG of chocolate a week? Port Wine? Olive oil? Walking? Fencing? Bigtime nuggets there. You made it sound as if she laid on the couch watching soaps and stuffing bobbons in her mouth while chainsmoking Pall Malls.

          So, in other words, you didn't read what I wrote at all or just lacked comprehension because you were excited to unleash an ad hominem attack. I'll state again, exactly what I wrote..."just because she was active, cognitive, and lived until that ripe old age".

          Not sure what part of the word "active" caused your imagination to leap straight to an image of her laying on the couch watching TV; not that any of her activities beyond smoking are relevant anyway as they are strawmen in the context of our discussion point. Nor did I "lambast" either of these individuals, your sense of dramatic flair is strong.

            I would argue being active and cognitive are actually lifestyle choices in and of themselves though if we really wanna keep on this. Maybe you mean ALL of her lifestyle choices.
