Re: animal protein

Kudos to circular for detailed and persuasive explanation of the Layman / Lyons points of view. I agree with her that this topic is vital. Thanks Marc for helping me feel like I'm not wasting my time venturing down this path, although I think you may be giving me more credit than I deserve ;) You'v...

Re: Tips to heal fracture?

Would love to hear what others have done to heal their broken bones :) About two months after I fractured my hip last summer, I lost a fair amount of upper body muscle. I had stopped lifting weights, so it wouldn't have been a surprise to lose a little, but losing quite a few pounds of muscle over ...

Re: animal protein

Just a quick add that Layman refers to some case control studies by protein metabolism researchers that he suggests are better than the epidemiological studies often relied on to conclude that low animal protein is good. I'm out of time to go deeper, but this should be evaluated and weighed?

Re: animal protein

The problem I'm having with this is that I would think we should all aim to place substantial physical demands on our musculoskeletal system as long as we possibly can for healthy aging. This would mean a need for higher adequate* protein should continue. Along with Dr. B, I'm in full agreement abo...

Re: Sleep

'Cuz sometimes when you're not getting enough sleep, it's just too hard to remember to quote someone! ;) True :lol: Or like all the times I go to edit a post but click quote instead, so my edits go into the thread as a new post :roll: Good ideas. I'm so frightfully behind on everything and everythi...

Re: Sleep

Circular, Do you use a special pillow? Because when I sleep on my back, I inevitably wake up with a sore neck that lasts for days from my head falling to one side. BTW I'm surprised you're not using the quote feature so I get notification of that you're addressing me. This helps, since these days I...

Re: Sleep

Circular, Do you use a special pillow? Because when I sleep on my back, I inevitably wake up with a sore neck that lasts for days from my head falling to one side. I don't use any pillow at all. It never seemed like a good thing to me to cock the neck up all night. I use a folded linen scarf to jus...

Re: Genealogy and Assessing Risk

Couldn't delete this second copy. Was trying to edit and clicked quote instead. Terrible habit of mine ... thought I was doing so much better about it :roll: Hi circ, If you go to your duplicate post and then the row of icons where the "quote" mark is, you'll see the second one in is an X...

For the time being, try sleeping on your back all night with legs elevated. This will help prevent rolling over and movement in general.

Re: Sleep

This has really motivated me to work on maximizing deep sleep. Interestingly, for me it plummets each time I try to use mouth taping, although I would still like to confirm that with something more accurate. What strategies are you using to maximize deep sleep? How interesting (and unfortunate) tha...
