    Just tried apple cider vinegar as it was recommended as the fountain of youth. Fountain of puke more like....man, it is awful to drink.

    Yes, maybe it cleans your insides - by dissolving them!

    Anyone else have some fancy ideas about what I can take to make me a physical and mental God (again)?:p

    I take a supermarket-brand Berocca substitute every day and I still feel like ****.

    All these ideas are just fads. They are just "snake oil". For starters everbody's metabolism is different, and while some may process certain nutrients in certains ways, others will not. This is obvious from physiological experiments. If you were a skinny minny in your youth and are now much more rounded in shape, it is the calories (more correctly Joules) you input. There never seem to be any dangers pointed out in fad diets, fad exercise regimes, fad health advice. Some are obviously nuts (like Gwynnie's steamed vagina!!!), some are more benign, rarely are allergies taken into account. I managed to get my weight to about 12 stone (at six foor two) when I was at Uni, playing squash and weight training, now my knees are knackered, I have permanent tennis elbow, all my joints creak and can be painful and my right knee collapses occasionally, Why? Cos I'm old and weigh more like sixteen stone now. I'm fat. I eat too much (I like food, and crisps, nuts, sweets, chocolate, cake). I know the answer; eat less. I'll never be like I was at uni. I live with it.

    Just cut back on your sugar intake. You'll feel much better for it.

    Maleficent drinks that. She also drinks beetroot juice.

    I've never let Joules into me.

    This I do agree with. When I overdo the sugar I feel lethargic and then feel I need to take more to beat the lethargy.

    Cutting well back has me feeling much better.

    I cut mine back and now if I do indulge I start sweating and I can feel my heart pick up a pace... decidedly nasty stuff.

    I would not have the discipline and would soon replace it with a full fat Galaxy milk choc bar.

    I eat those so quickly I feel sick.

    It is a good sick, tho....

    I had a few squares of Green & Black's 70% cocoa solids dark chocolate (other good brands are available..I don't count Galaxy among them, of course!;)) at lunch, and I'm feeling good, thanks! :D

    Works? What do you mean?

    Efficacious in every case?

    The opposite. I tried drinking soya milk as it's supposed to be healthy but it triggers a painful auto immune reaction.
    Took me ages and weeks of pain to realise it was the soya.

    Without a doubt. Water is the key to most wellness. But not this fancy low sodium stuff.

    Don't drink water. Fish pee in it.

    Turmeric tea is the fad in my office.

    Quite a lot of his material is on Youtube. The man is outrageously funny with that timing only a few, real few comedians have that makes an obvious and quite banal joke reduce you to howls of laughter.

    Guilt, not sugar.

    My hippyish sister recommended a Vitamin D3 supplement spray over winter - I can't say it's done any harm and it may have benefitted my teeth, as it boosts calcium.

    I don't mess with obscure nuts, roots and fungi though.
