Now that I think of it I have met one female Paleo in reality, and she was the worst advertisement you could imagine. Her face was literally ravaged (though my other Paleo friend put this down to her being an endurance athlete).
As AshleyL pointed out above, Mark spent most of his life as a pasta and gatorade pounding ultra-marathon runner. He talks about the physical damage that can do that is permanent. I think he is remarkably healthy given that he had all those years of abusing his body to undo.
I know that I look younger and better at 50 than I did at 40. I only wish I had know about Primal sooner.
People have always pegged me as younger than my years (same with both my mom and dad, so it's partly genetic), but since giong primal, I seemed to have stopped aging. Two years, ago, people thought that I was 26/27. Today, people think that i'm 26/27. That's two years on primal.
The way that I see it is that I have the opportunity to stack this in my favor. And I'll be honest, when I look at mark and his wife, I see people who look *a lot healthier and younger* than their CW (or other) counterparts.
I wonder, had my parents done something like this when they were my age, would they look even younger? would they have looked younger longer?
