Sometimes you just realize how much of a bubble you've ended up in. When you're in the health/diet/fitness world sometimes you are liable to forget that there are plenty of people who do nothing particularly special with their diet or exercise who are extremely attractive. When I moved from writing about food in light of diet to more general restaurant writing I was exposed to more of these people. Because a lot of them work in front of the house positions as servers or bartenders. I met people who have lifestyles and diets that would horrify most personal trainers and diet gurus. And yet they were often very attractive people. Who worked long hours and had very bad schedules in terms of sleep. And yet had plenty of energy.
You look phenomenal. What are your secrets to aging so beautifully?"Well, that’s genetics. I have nothing to do with that.
For myself, I've found how I look is pretty much dependent on calories and exercise. I can look the same as on a note-perfect paleo diet while drinking plenty of whiskey and eating cartloads of pasta as long as I exercise and do some intermittent fasting when I'm not stuffing my face with doughnuts.
I posted this article about Tom Brady and Giselle's "anti-inflamation" diet on my Facebook page and someone responded:
I want to see full body shots of the person giving advice as well as blood tests and videos showing me what kind of energy they have. A pic of Tom Brady versus the author of this piece is enough to know which way to lean in this case.
