Post The more you eat, the sooner you die.

This is not the first time I stumble across that opinion

The more you eat, the sooner you die.

Here's the link to the article.
http://www.time.com/time/specials/pa...963381,00.html

So according to the research, the more we exercise (specifically resistance training), the more we eat in order to get protein for muscle gain, therefore, the less we live.
The cure is either to exercise moderately and eat less, or become vegan/vegetarian.

What is your opinion on this?
In the end of the day, the point of Crossfit is to become fit in order to live longer and happier life..

Re: The more you eat, the sooner you die.

Living longer and Living happier don't always go hand in hand.

That said, the guy in here was an active male and his daily limit was 2500 calories a day. Which really isn't that much of a calorie restriction. You can fit an awful lot of food in 2,500 calories (unless you're in the PALEO!!! / GOMAD?!?!?!? crowd).

I refuse to believe this until the day I die, and I refuse to become a vegan too

Re: The more you eat, the sooner you die.

I concur, I think vegan propaganda is rubbish. Moderation of all things in life will equate to a better balance.

No lifting heavy weights
No Crossfit
Less S*x
Less Delicious food
No eating out
No Alcohol

My question is why the hell would you want to live longer
