I definitely don’t agree that having a slow metabolism increases life span whatsoever. BUT! For the sake of argument, let’s imagine that it did, in fact, increase your number of years on this earth. So what? I know that when my metabolism was at its lowest point, I didn’t even FEEL like living really. I was cold, fatigued, anxious, depressed, sleep-deprived, had zero-sexual interest, and lots more of those terrible symptoms associated with having a slow metabolism. In a word, I was miserable.
I’m now determined to add more life to my years than years to my life. Speeding up my metabolism (I’m still early on in that stage, but have noticed remarkable improvements during the first few days!) has given me my life back. Heck, I’d rather be the happiest guy alive and pass on a few years earlier than to add three years of zombie-esque existence to my life. That’s just me, though, and that’s also assuming that having a slow metabolism increases lifespan, which I’m pretty sure is bull.
So let’s focus on adding more LIFE to our YEARS, which is quite likely the best way to add YEARS to our LIFE. Who’s with me?
Just my 2 cents :)
