Look. It is NOT sexy to read Walter Adamson’s stuff and realize that he’s right: proper diet, exercise, friends, family and a life focus are the Magic Formula. Every single piece of research I have ever seen points to the same things over and over and over and over. Why?

Hey thanks for the cameo! Love your writing. I had related thoughts when I saw the HYPOXI room open at my local gym.
It offers "targeted weight loss with low impact exercise". In fact, Lotta, 23, lost 9.7kg after 36 sessions. Fantastic. That's $1800 paid for the option of avoiding a brisk walk each day and being left with no healthy habits.
Nevertheless getting started is a challenge, and knowing what to do when we're older. It was the shock of diabetes that rocked me 23 years ago that got me started. And it took me years to work through the hype, the bros, and to figure out what's best for those of us over 50.
It's certainly about quality aging - being able to play soccer with your grandkids, working around the creaks and niggles, and always keeping moving.
