my b/f (of 10 years) will be 53 this year. he was a lean, mean soccer machine when i met him, with a 6-pack. he was in amazing shape for a guy his age. he's not fat but now he's got a gut and snores like a chainsaw many nights. he also rarely gets enough sleep.
he simply will not give up his white bread, cheerios or heaven forfend the beer. lol. even though he admits my health has obviously improved since ditching grains a few years ago. he refuses to believe that lack of sleep may add to weigh gain.
some folks can't be told, ya know.
good luck with yours.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
