7 Ways My Body Has Changed After Hitting 30

In spite of my best efforts, I have been unable to halt the effects of time upon my body. While I have no serious health issues, a crop of minor annoyances have popped up. I want to share them so the young men reading today have an idea of what to expect as they get older.

1. My sex drive has reduced

sex-is-coming

In my early 20’s, I remember masturbating at least once a day. I used to think about sex constantly and be ready to fornicate with anything remotely decent. Today, I don’t think of sex at all unless I’m in the vicinity of a beautiful girl or I haven’t been laid in at least two weeks. Because of that, I’ve been far more productive when it comes to work and can think more clearly, but I do feel like I’m missing out on a primal motivator that drove me in the past.

I know many men who take various hormonal substances to re-gain their vigor, but I don’t yet see it as a problem requiring medicinal supplementation.

2. My urine flow is more lazy

leaky-faucet

It takes me more time to shake off the remaining drops after urination, as if there is greater leftover still in the pipes. I’m aware that I could do reps of squeezing exercises that hit my PC muscles, but it’s not yet a big problem

3. I’m more fatigued after working out

marathon-collapse

After a workout, my body wants to call it a day and rest. To combat this, I sometimes have to take an espresso shot to help get me through the remainder of the day, something I didn’t have to do when I was younger. When I was boxing in Ukraine a couple years ago, some of the workouts were so intense that I had to go to sleep right after. Working out is supposed to increase your overall energy in theory, but you must account for long periods of rest.

4. My joints are getting stiffer

frankenstein

When I wake up in the morning, my spine, shoulders, wrists, ankles, and knees feel rigid, and I have to move around a bit until they are lubricated. I also have to stretch a lot more than when I was younger.

5. My kidneys are more sensitive to salt, caffeine, and alcohol

caffeine

After eating a salty meal, I have to drink huge amounts of water afterwards to re-balance my system. My kidneys also go crazy if I go too heavy on diuretic drinks during the day, such as consuming coffee in the afternoon and then beer in the evening. During periods of drinking coffee every day, I feel like I’m in a chronic state of dehydration.

6. My eyes get so dry they burn

dry-eye

I’ve always had slightly dry eyes, but during the winter it’s getting bad enough that I have to sometimes skip out on wearing contacts. I’ve been able to temporarily solve this problem with eye drops and heat compresses, but I’m not producing enough eye oil. My eye doctor thinks it’s due to being on the computer so much, where blinking is less frequent.

7. My stomach sticks out slightly more

beer-belly

I haven’t put more fat on my stomach, but I noticed it’s a bit more distended than when I was younger, as if it wants to round out. My guess is that this is from lower levels of testosterone and just general aging.

The above changes aren’t debilitating by any means, but they are changes nonetheless. Based on what I see in my father, I’m guessing that my body will degrade slowly at first, and then a bit more rapidly after I hit 50 and all the little problems escalate further. As long as my dick works and I don’t need to hire a Filipina nurse to sponge bathe me, I think I’ll be able to adapt to the changes that come.

I’m willing to accept the aging process, but I would be lying if I said I am looking forward to it.

I wonder how much of it can be ascribed to the natural aging process and how much to a diet of processed shit and an environment that’s laden with all sorts of artificial chemicals (polluted air, water, soil).

There are many college-aged guys out there, barely in their twenties, who already look like 35, and many stories of girls who already hit puberty at 8 years old. I don’t know what’s going on, but it certainly isn’t natural.

Yeah, I’ve been slacking off from taking care of myself recently.

But conditions of modern society is definitely wrecking our collective health, and in more ways than we can ever imagine. Heck, I read one article that said we’re not getting diverse microbes in our bodies, something no one even thinks about.

As a comparison, look at people in tribal societies. These gentlemen (whom I guess are in their 50’s) don’t look so bad considering they don’t have an access to gym or protein powders.

That’s a Paupa New Guinea tribe, many of which were cannibalistic until Christian Missionaries began trying to westernize them in the 40’s. The 2nd man from the right has his ‘penis gourd’ on display. The ‘Chambri’ tribe is the matriarchal and matrilineal tribe which Margaret Mead observed and which she used to try to bolster feminism in the west in the 40’s. All men wore the traditional ‘penis gourd’ until missionaries came promoting a western dress code. The missionaries never preached patriarchy so I wouldn’t consider them true christian. If a missionary or anyone else in the street or out in the bush were to proselytize the rule of patriarchy then THAT’S what you call christian. Anyone hammering the word and blowing the horns for patriarchy, I would have to consider as a true or at least ‘honorary’ christian or ‘dietist’ of a masculine godhead and promoter of ‘man rule’ in society. But the foundation funded missionaries who don’t preach patriarchy are nothing but subversives and spies for the globalist great whore bitchsystem and are in league with the peace corps.

North Sentinel Island,a remote island south of India inhabited by fierce tribes that have existed for an estimated 60000 years with .00000001% interaction with modern humans .This tribe left Africa eons ago and decided they would never co-exist with other humans,protocol is death to invaders of the island,shipwreck victims,explorers,humanity aid workers,profiteers are lucky to leave the island alive ,as most end up arrowed,speared,or throat slit to death.

These people look healthy as professional athletes and hurl spears that penetrate low flying aircraft .Definitely not in the establishments best interest to publicize a thriving community that’s barren from government intrusion even if they live in a modem stone age,these people are fit,happy,healthy,and seem to enjoy a reclusive hunter,gatherer lifestyle with a social caste system.

They also dont live in a culture of excesses. We do. We have very simple access to excessive amounts of food that we can have on demand. Marry that with a sedentary lifestyle and the prospects arent too good for staying in shape.

Personally, I’m not 30 yet but, can feel how things are changing with my body. I have a very active job that helps but, us bigger guys feel the effects of our size on our joints earlier than average sized guys. That and having a young child at home doesnt exactly do wonders for the sex life either. Half the time I’d rather have a nap than sex.

Testosterone decreases about 1% a year by the time your in your 30’s. Many of the effects noted in this article can be ascribed to that.
Sex drive, gut .recovery …

When did your sex drive really ramp up? In your teens as testosterone production increased. At the same time a guy becomes more muscular, deeper voice etc

There are testosterone creams that can be applied.

There’s gotta be a lot of similarities on a biological level, even if you were to compare a nineteen year old husband and father to three to a “more mature man” maybe two decades his senior who is also married, with three children. I’m not a scientist, -i just had a shitload of my racing buddies get married and produce their progeny within a year or two just outta high school. (those who were left after not knocking up one or two while IN high school. ) Wow. They all made this really noticeable shift within the first year of their first born….i’m really not certain that marraige plays a hardcore hand either…because almost none of them actually got married until the second or third child was on the way. smile Anyways. that first year of the first born child. Some of the hardest badasses i knew transmogrified into …big, irritable, passive-submissive teddy bears who possessed less aggressive resolve than i did as a virgin. annnnd i was a freekin V for a pretty long time. They all packed on about twenty lbs., stopped hitting the weights, started hitting the couch and empty carbs. Now you could argue that things like midnight infant formula runs and three a.m. teething shrieks, coupled with a disgustingly constant & countless diaper change onslaught….can really take it out of a guy. Here’s the thing though: i was around the same age as them, i was homeless at the time so i was always crashing someone’s couch. Those Someone’s being all the homies who had moved out of their parent’s house already because they…yeah. Anyways. nobody knew it at the time : i was still a sad little virgin. And i kept up with the “household duties” and took turns, even at three a.m. -doing diapers and rock a bye babying those nasty little teething shrieks away and riding bikes at 2a.m. to the grocery store to steal infant formula, etc, etc.(yeah i know, i know. tell it to the crying baby.)
Man. what a post h.s. education that was for me. Needless to say i still don’t have any kids of my own. But my point was: i continued to hit the weights, grew bigger, and remained extremely active thru all of this. maybe it’s because i wasn’t actually raising my own. but this was no weekend project…i was there doing that “street uncle” shit for years. i got tired from the rigamorale, -but it didn’t seem to do me in. My “parenting homies” all transformed literally right before my eyes into the fathers they needed to be…but biology and mother nature are both CUNTS for making that mean that you, as a man, now have less juice available. They have things like Kegel’s and whatever for post pregnancy women. Perhaps they should have a supplement for freshly married men who just impregnated their better half. Like a supplemental pre-treatment. So that they don’t transmogrify into the shadowpuppet of a lesser feeling half. I mean…shit, it’s 2016. we should have this kind of crap figured out by now. here’s a link to the original data i was citing: 2006 – ncbi.nlm.nih.gov>PMC1560035

I think alot of the microbe stuff is a red herring. If you look at the microbes in fish(who we evolved from) you dont really see any uniformity. However if you look at say the fermented food Kimchi you can control the bacteria created simply with salt and ph(hmm sounds alot like ocean conditions). I think the real problem people are getting is exactly that, not the proper level of salt and ph in their digestive tract. There is a long history of ‘aperatifs’ that for some reason cause you to produce more stomach acid, and they have a long history of being medicines as well. Its very well known that as people age they produce less stomach acid..this is a problem that no doctor I’ve seen even talks about. If you can’t properly digest what you eat, nothing else matters. Not your supplements, not your bacteria not your paleo diet.

it’s not so much white skin they admire, they just prefer their skintone to be lighter because in their history, having darker skin meant less prestige and equate with working in farms.

Asian skin tone is yellowish light hue while white people’s skin is pinkish light hue. Also many whites have freckles and moles so it’s not really white skin that they emulate.

Never run out of your vitamins. I can float for awhile if I run out but whatever I’m lacking, I’ll probably feel it sooner or later. Luckily I’m not hooked or chained to any health system and I don’t need pharmacy pills just to live. If a disaster hit, half the folks on ass-ache chronic meds would be jonsing like motherfuckers. Men need to learn what nutritional/medicinal plants to chew on if they ever have to head to the woods during a disaster. Sodium(salt) is like magic for the electrolytes. I’d bring salt to the woods#1 after water of course.

I don’t know much about Adisson’s disease since it’s rare but it is in the class of autoimmune conditions. The fatigue and ache symptoms could be like hypoglycemia or any of the other autoimmune spectrum.

About fifteen years ago, over a period of a year or so, I got fatigued and it felt like something was eating me up from the inside out. I didn’t know what it was but I was hitting some sort of wall with my crappy uneducated diet. And I sure wasn’t going to a doctor because I don’t need no stinking doctors. Then a friend turned me on to ‘The Blood Type Diet’ by Dr D’Adamo. I may have had onset of addison’s, celiac, hypoglycemia, thyroid and others. Basically my shit was getting fucked upper by the day and something was eating me up like a big giant internal worm it felt like.

Autoimmune conditions are like the common psycho conditions in that they come in packages, ergo – a typical psycho doesn’t have just BPD or schizo alone, no they have an assortment of a few of them rolled up into one burrito. For example, have you ever known a girl with JUST BPD alone? No usually she has a few other things rolled into it as well like OCD, addictive behavior, cock thievery. Diseases come in packages. It’s always a burrito roll of related maladies. ‘Shit likes company’ is a universal law.

A paleo diet is a good hedge aganst the creep of autoimmune conditions which increase with age especially if you’re a crappy diet shiteater like I was. But the blood type diet is more refined than paleo. The blood type diet is the strictest of diets. It is strict as hell like being a ‘food nazi’ but it is the ‘ace in the hole’ of diets. I can swear by it.

About six months after only eating certain foods designated for my blood type and religiously avoiding others, I began to feel way better and younger and without ever having to be dissected on some stinking doctor’s table.

The funny thing about the blood type diet is that some blood types should eat a certain group of foods as a staple diet but if another blood type ate those same foods, they’d be wiped out or killed by the wrong foods. Each type has its own set of foods to eat. Foods that are good for one type are bad for another type. Only a few foods like broccoli and pineapple are ‘people’s’ foods and are good for everybody.

The girl that turned me on to the diet was a super lean regular bike rider and I called her a ‘food nazi’ when she ate her stuff and she told me to eat completely different stuff. Then I read the book and tried the perscribed foods. People who eat the diet become ‘extremely’ lean. That diet alone without any stinking meds or doctors cured my condition.

Most people don’t bother to learn what and what not to poke into their hole until it’s too late, when shit starts to break down. I pity those who feel obligated to not cure themselves but rather to live under socialized medical tyranny and obamacare.

Before I followed the blood type diet, it felt like I had one foot in the grave but it was really the burrito roll of autoimune syndrome that I had. It’s a festering stinking inedible burrito that grows quickly by the day after you hit a wall from years of eating nothing but nitrated pink slime, gluten, HFCS, GMO, red40, mercury laiden large fish, frankenfood, dead food, trans fat, MSG, hydrogenated veg oils – those are all the ingredients to make that awful autoimmune burrito – the dead burrito you’re going to be if you don’t go cold turkey on the bad shit.

But just going cold turkey on the bad processed shitfoods isn’t the entire ticket. You need to know what perscribed foods to begin eating afterwards. For example, type A is the only type that can tolerate corn but not lima beans. Lima beans will fuck type A’s up if they eat enough of them but they’re good for type B. Corn will wreak havoc with a type O’s asthma tendency and so on . . it’s all autoimmune.

For a short listing of the proper foods matched with the designated blood types:

Right now, I’m trying garlic essential oil, and it has effect on my eyes, worsen my exophtalmus.
As garlic stimulates the thyroid, maybe I’m hypo now?
But I don’t understand how I could be hypo with exophtalmus, and gaining weight. It seems contradictory.

Garlic is an odd one, Ayurveda says it isnt fit for human consumption and other cultures say only aged garlic and generally in slowly increasing doses. When you alternate hypo and hyper thats usually because your immune system is directly attacking your thyroid or receptors(then it releases thyroid hormones making you hyper). Hyper lowers immune response, so you become hypo again. Hypo raises immune system and the cycle repeats(there are blood tests for these specific antibodies which doctors never request). My personal belief is that Fluoride and Acidity are the primary problems that most people have. You might try some sodium ascorbate a few times a day in the gram level, and you might try boron(5-10mg/day) and diatomaceous earth(1/2 teaspoon per day working up to 2 teaspoon) to remove fluoride. Ayurveda says and studies confirm Tamarind increases fluoride excretion(am testing now) General symptoms of fluoride are joint problems, skin problems, teeth problems, cellulite(problems making collagen). Tumeric and Chili in larger doses also do wonders for weight loss-I lost 30 lbs in 3 months. Activated charcoal will help with any detox symptoms like acne or headaches. Cold pressed Castor oil rubbed daily on your thyroid and ovaries can remove any abnormal cells, like hot or cold nodules or polycycstic ovaries. Best of luck to you Miss Lili.

That you say make sense. I know in physiology, it’s very often that you have this kind of body behaviours, excess, lack, and then, excess and lack… Like with diabetes for instance.

Really THANKS for your help!!!!

I avoid fluorides, waters in my country have no fluoride (but they’re full of bleaching water), I don’t use fluoride toothpaste.

My boyfriend is an Asian, so I generally eat a lof of chili/tumeric/garlic.
I know I have a deficiency in magnesium (muscles spasms and pain when I don’t have magnesium intake, like bananas or almonds), an iron deficiency, because my skin is very pale, and now my lips, that had a pretty pink color before, are very pale, almost all white.
I eat (very) few meat, as I know it’s very acidic, but don’t want to be a vegetarian, for the iron intake, the B12 and the animal omega 3, etc.

I used to use kefir, kombucha, germinated seeds, apple vinegar, I will go back soon to all this. I use clay, as you mentioned, sometimes, and will probably use it on my neck, since my neck is swollen now. I though I gained weight and had a double chin, but it seems related with my thyroid. It’s a kind of oedema. I really hate it.

My hypo/hyper is the reason why I refused to have chemicals drugs. They also wanted to remove my thyroid, doctors said I’m at risk for a cancer.

I had big problems with my teeth (like if they were melting), but had surgery to fix it.
I have inflammatory kind of problem: asthma, adenoids, eczema etc.

My thyroid problem date back to Tchernobyl, I was almost baby at this time, and got indirectly irradiated (by toxic rains on Europe)

Yes, I need a detox. I wonder if I’ll try the liver detox program(epsom salt).
I can fast a very long time, without losing any weight (like 2 or 3 weeks). I also take very little meal, once a day, but have always a lot of digusting cellulite around my hips.

Is good you Eastern Europeans are generally very well educated about health. I remember having a similar problem where even eating very little didnt let me lose weight. Generally water has a larger effect on acidity than anything else in your diet, and much of Eastern Europe has very acidic water. There are many parts of EE that also have high levels of natural fluoride in the water(Odessa for example) Alot of your symptoms seem to indicate that. Meat is acidic but has a neutral effect because your kidneys convert the glutamine in it to bicarbonate in your blood(and ammonium in your urine). If you need iron you can also get it from blackstrap molasses. The reason why your thyroid swells is that part of the process of making thyroid hormones is your body makes hydrogen peroxide in order to change iodide into iodine to make T4 and T3. you can actually see this if you drip some potassium iodide into hydrogen peroxide..it turns yellow(the iodine released). hydrogen peroxide is a very damaging substance. If someone supplements iodine without selenium their thyroid will often swell because it starts making more T4 but doesn’t have enough selenium to reduce the further damage. Selenium is the rare essential element your body uses to reduce the damage caused by this hydrogen peroxide and it is also used to convert thyroid hormones to the more active forms which burn fat(so supplement selenium!). T3 and T2 are commonly used by body builders to lose fat.The thyroid is intimately related to acidity/alkalinity, because it releases parathyroid hormone and calcitocin which cause you to release and recreate bone mineral for example during exercise. thyroid removal should be your very last choice, it is often a horror story(read online forums and youll see what I mean). Thyroid Cancer is generally a very benign one, with an extremely high survival rate. You might consider reading the whole history of the Gerson Therapy, it is a very fascinating one(it originally had a 90%+ rate of curing incurable skin tuberculosis) and it has one of the highest rates of curing cancer and generally improving health. I’ve heard of people successfully removing thyroid nodules just with cold pressed castor oil. Liver detox with epsom salts(and olive oil i assume) worked for me, I only wish I had taken charcoal and DE at the same time, as alot of toxin are released at the same time. So it seems to me your likely problems are fluoride, acidity low vit c, and lack of selenium. Its good to keep in mind what the Chinese believed.. if a doctor had to rely on surgery to fix a health problem, he wasnt a good doctor-he didnt understand the true nature of disease. It sounds like you have a good start on the things you are trying. Best of luck to you lili.

In Paris, water is very basic (a lot of limestone), and full of bleaching water.
But I drink very few, I’m never thirsty. It’s a real pain for me to remember to drink. I don’t like the taste of water.

I will keep a copy of all what you’ve said, it’s very enlightning!
Where did you learn all that?
Very few people understand how the thyroid work.

Everywhere I could, online forums, old books, new books, blogs, pubmed studies, and self experimentation for about 3 years now. And of course with the best motivation, to cure my own health! Thyroid hormones are probably the most interesting hormones, because they can act as antioxidants, catalysts , and they seem to be the oldest hormones-go to a beach and even the starfish or sea urchin you pick up have thyroid hormones. So where are you originally from?

oh and the exophthalmos is an interesting one..you can see almost the exact same symptoms in three very different diseases, Dengue fever, Scurvy and Graves Hyperthyroidism. Basically in all three you are causing excessive acidity in the body which damages collagen, and depletes bone mineral. It can get so bad that you even get internal hemmorhages, wounds reappear and teeth fall out. This excess acidity can also damage the kidneys(look up rhabdomyolysis). Alkaline water can do wonders.

Mine is Graves. I don’t have hemmorhages (yet?), but had a lot of problem with my teeth recently (fixed with surgery, now they are perfect)
I try to eat a lof of banana, it’s good for excessive acidity. I’ll try to have at least one a day. I have magnesium deficiency (maybe also calcium), because I have spasms in my muscle, I know it’s because of magnesium. Almonds and bananas remove my spasm. I also have iron deficiency, I have a very pale skin and now even my lips are pale (they had a pretty pink color before), my lips are almost white. I know it’s an anemia sign.
I have normal menstruations though.
I don’t know how to do with this thyroid unbalance. As I tried garlic essential oil, maybe I should try the opposite effect essential oil, calming down the thyroid.
I try to eat very few meat, but don’t plan to be a vegetarian at all.
I had a good experiment with kefir, I’ll go back to it.
I’ll go back to germinated seeds too, kombucha.
My skin is dry, because I don’t have any thirst. I can stay all the day, even when it’s hot with only a glass of water. Thinking to drink is very had for me, unless it’s sugary.

Thanks for your advice! If you have any on essential oil, massages or diet. I’ll take them! I don’t want to look older because I’m tired because of this shitty disease.

The lack of minerals in the soil is something I haven’t figured out a good solution for. I eat little meat, since it is raised on chemicals and hormones (try eating meat abroad and it tastes totally different than American frankenfood), have a garden, and get fresh food from a farmers coop every week. Don’t eat fast food, etc. But I hear a few people I trust in the healthcare field talk about lack of minerals in the soil and how it is the root cause (no pun intended) of most medical problems.

Are you a fan of those colloidal minerals or what’s your solution?

Also hear more about how grains are bad for you but I rarely eat them, maybe a bun with a hamburger once a month or something.

zinc benefits

http://main.poliquingroup.com/ArticlesMultimedia/Articles/Article/812/Top_Ten_Benefits_of_Zinc.aspx
You can only get zinc from animals- zinc found in plants cannot be absorbed by the body. Best sources are oysters, and organic beef and lamb. I take ZMA(zinc/magnesium/b6 vitamins). Eat organic eggs and whey for your protein. Apparently soft-boiled or sunny side up are the best methods of cooking it. Use as much organic butter as you want to fry em- apparently olive oil is a nono- its only healthy if you eat it cold, so drizzle it on your salad.

I eat 2 poached eggs every morning (very similar to soft boiled) and use organic butter. Always use full fat greek yogurt and real cream, half and half, or milk, not any of the adulterated reduced fat stuff. Your body needs fat, and many minerals can only be absorbed with fat (drinking nonfat milk is particularly stupid–the vitamins A and C and calcium cannot be absorbed by the body without fat so you might as well be drinking water– plus it tastes like crap).
I do cook with olive oil. There’s so much conflicting stuff out there, it’s hard to know. It’s the best oil for you. No it’s bad. Who knows? But I do know that eating full, whole foods, which are unprocessed, is always the best. I think I’ll start switching from EVOO to butter though. I take some vitamin supplements, but no minerals. I bought some colloidal minerals in the past, and probably will again. Eggs are awesome, and make me feel great. Your body will react to good foods, and reject bad ones, if you listen to it. Mimic the diets of thin, healthy cultures. Lots of veggies, fruits, fish, etc.

Yes! Colloidal minerals and/or chelated minerals is where it’s at. A good magnesium supp changed everything for me. Also certain vitamins/ vitamin rich foods have synergistic effects with each other which can boost absorption. Also the zinc for men big time as mentioned.

I grew up on a farm, farming has changed, there is no or little crop rotation, no more leaving the fields fallow, fertilizers only have like 4 minerals that are supplemented. 90 years of plant, harvest plant harvest, and that isnt going to deplete the soil? When I was in Argentina its as like going back in time, grass fed cows, black soil a foot deep, leaving fields fallow, rotation..shocking Argentines are skinny.

The quality of food in South America and Africa (have not been to asia) is the highest I have experienced by far. (Hell, even western Europe is better than USA). I actually stopped eating chicken after tasting what a real chicken tasted like in Ecuador, and coming back home and realizing this bland frankenbird chock full of hormones and chemicals and grown to full size in 6 weeks that I had been buying in America was barely related.

Also, I wonder if they have the rash of recalls and contaminations that we have in the US due to factory farming. Every couple of years there is a huge outbreak of some bacteria that kills a few people and results in millions of dollars worth of meat being recalled. I barely eat meat in the US anymore.

The sad thing is globalization is destroying any differences between cultures, and soon places like Argentina will have factory farms coming in and paying the poor farmers huge prices for their land, and most will sell, and then you can say goodbye to the good food and skinny people.

“There are many college-aged guys out there, barely in their twenties, who already look like 35, and many stories of girls who already hit puberty at 8 years old. I don’t know what’s going on, but it certainly isn’t natural. ”

Metabolic syndrome accelerates the aging process, and also makes kids hit puberty earlier.

The solution is basically giving up refined carbs, and adopting a Paleo, or “Paleo-light” diet.

“a diet of processed shit”
Don’t eat any of the so-called healthy fats; canola, etc., get your fats from animal sources as humans from the mists of time have done. Cancer and heart disease used to be so rare doctors would travel to see a case. People ate butter, eggs, red meat. In the arctic people would thrive almost entirely on animal fat.

Ignore entertainers like Dr. Oz and read up on a true to life conspiracy against animal fats on the part of Ancel Keyes (of “K Rations” fame) and the seed oil industry after WWII.

It’s mostly about taking care of yourself. I’m a heavy drinker so I deal with the eye dryness thing, and occasionally, I go from a 33 inch to 31 inch waist after I piss. But yeah, some people age so fast and it’s out of nowhere. Girls and a few boys are getting so many GMOs and whatever they put in the water aside from fluoride and all sorts of poisons… you’re in your 30’s, and one day feel like you’re 18, and then after walking your dog a mile… game over. You lift weights, the next day, and feel great… but can only hit the elliptical machine for 25 minutes without taking a nap or going into a coma. I believe it’s being more awake about reality, and the fact that the only hot chick you can bang in the next week without paying or moving to another city that’s not Houston(don’t move here, it sucks)… sleepwalkers pretend that nothing has changed, but you can prove it. The microbe thing Corey mentions, could be causing some of this. Overdo eating awesome, and spend more on that… than… booze and everything else. Take care of yourself, and your dogs, cats, whatever first. People can go to hell eventually, cause they must love it… I get told I look so young, but if I don’t shave for a few days or just say I’m only eating pizza and generic ritalin will be my cure for any weight gain… I get told I almost look my age but feel like I should hit a hospice. We age, and we suck at rebounding… plus… evil guys don’t care about everyone else. We suck it up, and should try to adapt… die or adapt. Hopefully we man up or cease to exist. Babies and trannies will be the last humans standing, cause the elite LOVE them. Talk about Israel being against Jesus or mention Voltaire, Napoleon, or even Thomas Paine, and you will not get laid in the South. We care less, I believe, when you’ve been and done enough even though you’re not even wanting to buy that Porsche with a ridiculous lease or watching 2001 episodes of Aqua Teen while drinking 40’s. Those sound like great ideas in this collapse… as master shake stated something about, “when everyone zigs, I zag.” Jesus, I’m watching Aqua Teen on an ex’s Huluplus account… not exactly what Andrew Jackson would have done.

“I’m willing to accept the aging process, but I would be lying if I said I am looking forward to it.”

This haunts me as well. One hears the politically correct sound byte : “You’re not getting older, you’re getting better!” which is a load of horse shit.

Unfortunately western society really cannot stand the elderly, it’s sad really. If a man has not either become financially independent, or secured an iron clad job with benefits by age 50, he’s out. There are only so many positions for Wall Mart greeters available out there, but but now we are talking about being employed by a concentration camp, you’re better off dead anyway.

I don’t know what the solution is other than Aarran Clarey’s Smith & Wesson Retirement Plan i.e. a pistol to the mouth, with brain tissue and skull fragments spewed againat the wall.

The S&W retirement play? lol

I posted here and on RoK the H&H retirement plan — heroin & helium, and was blasted for being a nihilistic douche. But then the guy using that label was probably 19 years old. IMHO I don’t categorize making it to 90ish in a wheelchair with oxygen the same as winning Survivor. It’s an empty goal.

Unlike most people, the mere act of physically living isn’t enough to justify my existence. If I’m not contributing something to someone or the planet as a whole, I’m just taking up space. But that’s my own philosophy. I don’t consider life to be sacred. Life is function of biology, as evidenced in all the other species inhabiting the planet. I know that religion and spirituality seek to establish an intangible eternal value to the individual, his soul, and his need to live on. But then those things were likely written to keep slaves and the oppressed from simply ending themselves to escape the pain of all the unjust rulers of the past.

Even now as I sit here typing this, I doubt the value of my contributions now and to the rest of the world and debate when is the right time to “retire,” as you aptly put it.

I’m traveling now to find the last pockets of civilization and culture where elders are still regarded in high esteem — and consequently still have access to young pussy. Any man of modest accomplishments that survives to 40 or 50 and can provide wisdom to the younger generations should qualify. Unfortunately, here in the west we celebrate the clumsy stupidity, ignorance and inexperience of youth. We replace real accomplishments by the size of one’s bank account and ego. It’s a sad sack of shit awaiting aging men in the west.

Sounds like you’re a materialist.

But all of the materialists and atheists can’t explain how life arose or other things like irreducible complexity or lack of transition fossils.

The materialist narrative is like Homer’s night out with many scenes missing:

“IMHO I don’t categorize making it to 90ish in a wheelchair with oxygen the same as winning Survivor. It’s an empty goal”

Good points made. Even if I am able to age with all of my faculties i.e. being physically able and strong and have my marbles intact, I too want to feel I’m contributing something of actual value to the World. If not, then one is simply perceived as a “drag” on society.

The other thing is that regardless of how well a man ages, at some point he becomes repulsive to young females. Exceptions might be if there are any young hotties who have a perverted fetish for ear hair or something only an old guy has, but I’m not talking about money. I guess inversley a man’s libido drops to the point where he no longer needs to dump his load. But there is something else: at the risk of sounding schmaltzy, young love is not only about fucking, but also about seeing the sun setting light on a pretty you thing’s face, or the way the light makes her strawberry-brown hair glow. That, plus the sparkle in the eyes of a young woman, the firmness of her body and pureness of her skin. That at such a young age she has life in her, a smile of someone just starting out in life. Old hags simply do not have these qualities anymore. Suffice it to say I think there is a good reason nature enabled men to have cataracts – so that aging females – these sacks of decomposition and decay would be a merciful, out of focus blur to men.

Calling it quits is one thing, but the existentialist question, and this is assuming one’s consciousness continues after the physical-biological life ends: does one’s fate differ if he commits suicide vs. natural causes? And if “yes” then what defines suicide? Is not living the life of a drinking and drugging party animal not a form of slow suicide?

The Smith & Wesson retirement plan is pragmatic, but also forces any man to think about death more thoroughly since he is literally commanding his fate.

“I think you hit the nail on the head that men DO want to command their fate. And, that includes when and how he dies”

Indeed – but there is always the question of whether or not someone’s after life is different if he calls it quits and takes his life. This is very much like Shakespeares famous “To be or not to be” monologue.

I should also add in an additional thought, because I had a close friend of mine commit suicide i.e. took the Smith & Wesson retirement plan and took his own life. He was just turning 50, and I’m in my late 40’s.

Before he died – he mentioned about calling it quits, though I did not take him seriously at the time.

He said something that continues to stick with me: he said “Paul, if you’re thinking about ending it, you owe it to yourself to turn over every rock of possibility to investigate whether or not there may be a place for you. Pursue that crazy venture you’ve been thinking about but have been putting off, ask out that young 20 year old woman even though there’s a good chance she’ll throw up at the mere thought of going out with you. Just do it, because at the end, when you decide to call it a day on your Human condition, you want to do so knowing that you do not have any more options, making your departure from this life a qualified one.”

This certainly makes sense. It is absolutely out of line to end one’s life simply based on one random less than pleasant event.

That said, I could’nt imagine what it would be like to investigate all possibilties and possible niches and relationships, only come to the realization that there is nothing else for you; that you are, in fact, truly done, and that the moment of ending one’s life has arrived. A moment like that has to be beyond sobering.

No doubt. Leave no opportunity unexplored — to a point.

Here’s what I can say about exploring the infinite possibilities for a purpose. A man will find that the actual pursuits can be infinitely varied. What starts to be the same for a man is his sense of satisfaction and accomplishment from chasing this and that goal, activity, relationship, etc.

Roosh has experienced a level of this diminishing return on effort in activity of gaming girls. What was thrilling and fulfilling at first is less so with each new girl. The same can be said of any endeavor a man can engage in, any pursuit he can throw himself into, and any goal he sets for himself.

Each time a man reaches some goal or participates in some task, the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction diminishes. I After a while, a man sees any new activity or endeavor as no different than any other because at the end he has experienced all the various emotions, satisfaction, and senses of accomplishment he’s experienced before from other pursuits. Even adrenaline junkies will eventually either burn out or need more intense and life threatening pursuits to generate a similar high as the first time he braved a bungee jump.

We see men who most consider to “have it all” who are empty and lacking the desire to pursue anything else in life. Ted Turner is a classic case of this. He had money, fame, status, and a hot celebrity wife at one time. Yet he considered suicide at around age 63. His reasons may be linked more to failures and misfortune in his life, but men with prospects beyond their situation don’t typically contemplate suicide. It’s only men who don”t see any future prospects that do.

That is the danger for men who’ve either accomplished all that they set out to accomplish in life (I was an early bloomer), or men who don’t see prospects for the future. Even if coming from two completely different emotional states, these men of these two situations look to a future without prospects.

I am by no means saying that there’s nothing left for me. In one sense, there are an infinite number of things I can pursue. However, the real question is whether or not any one of an infinite number of pursuits can provide me any sense of joy, accomplishment or satisfaction that I do not already possesses or have not already experienced. And while I can say there are some pursuits that would provide me so novel experiences, I don’t know that in the end they provide me anything so radically new and fulfilling that they are worth pursuing.

It’s many words to try to say that most men will arrive at a point where they will have to soberly evaluate the question, “What’s left?” And, what should I devote my life energy to pursing the future. There are an infinite number of distractions that an man can pursue from having to answer such questions. But at some point we all must answer those questions one way or another.

“but men with prospects beyond their situation don’t typically contemplate suicide. It’s only men who don’t see any future prospects that do.”

This time I think you nailed it on the head. This is why my friend called it quits – he was no longer young and living in the States where, in the current zeitgeist, being over age 28 is considered old. He was also in a profession soon to be overtaken by robotics. So he did the math on it all, and on everything: his social niche, his business prospects, and his economic prospects. He came to his conclusion: the return on investment just wasn’t there anymore.

I would wager that it’s easy to be a young guy, starting out in life with potential across the board and say to one’s self “When I turn age “x” I’m going to end my life.” But when that age arrives and it’s time to check out, it has to be grueling. At least dying of natural causes means you simply do not know when it will happen until it does. Men who are lucky die of something instantly – heart attack or stroke; while others slowly rot and see their demise coming very rapidly. But even for those who go Smith & Wesson, that micro-second just before the trigger gets pulled has to be the most intense ever experienced in his life.

Great post. I just turned 30 and I’m noticing some of this stuff, including stiff joints (I sat on the floor recently for 5 minutes and I had trouble getting up, even though I work out and can run long distances with no problem).

I’ve also been unable to really enjoy shitty food like I could in my youth. If I eat anything remotely sweet I get a huge surge of energy and then crash hard. I used to be able to eat fast food every day and not feel a thing and still remain skinny, but now eating one burger from McDonald’s or Burger King will sap my energy for the rest of the day and make me feel bloated. And I don’t drink as much a I used to, but the hangovers I get are severe, sometimes lasting 2 days. When I was in college I could drink till I blacked out, then wake up in the morning and go to class and make it through the day. Today I could have 8 beers over the course of 6 hours and it’ll still take me till about 4PM the next day to work up the energy to even get out of bed and shower.

You have to eat two or three times the probiotics to break down the sewage in a mickey D’s and still the gluten sensitivity raises with age.

I experienced that eating Gelatin, or Collagen in some form can be massively helpful, for joint pains, dry skin and eyes etc. (I`m 36 also)

It`s something that our ancestors ate a lot of, but that is rarely present in our diets today.

This is the brand that i`m currently using;

Sprinkle Rogaine or Minoxidil on your head. Also the product also increases facial hair thickness but it has negative effect if you want to get boner. That’s the downside. They sell those products easily on Walmart or Target (in America).

Never drinking alcohol, avoiding junk food at all cost and rarely staying up very late but he is in amazing shape. Even in his late fights, his body looked much younger.

For #4 joints: I’m 50 and had the same issues, especially since I have an intense MMA/BJJ workout schedule.

The ONLY thing that finally worked to reduce and practically eliminate joint pain and stiffness was tumeric curcumin supplementation. Just this basis food/spice did the trick! No wonder it is used extensively in the cuisines of India and the middle east.

I take 1 x 650 mg tumeric curcumin cap (Fettle Botanical) in the morning and one at night. Joint pain and stiffness GONE! Try it. Might work for you.

And I doubt it was psychosomatic, as I’ve taken all sorts of supplements over the years with high hopes. None of the other stuff ever worked.

I plan on taking tumeric for life. Other than joint relief all the science points to other benefits too, especially digestion. One positive side effect is that it also cuts down on flatulence, so if your diet is heavy on beans and other legumes, take one cap of tumeric 30 mins before the meal.

I want to ask the men who are 30-plus: do you feel jaded and less excited about life as you get older? I’m more active than when I was younger, but I hardly experience any enjoyment and satisfaction anymore. I’m wondering if it’s a natural process of aging or if I’m suffering from anhedonia.

I’m not too far into my 30s Corey, but I think it’s not that (somewhat) older people are less excited or satisfied with life, it’s the fact that by the time we reach 30 we all have a lot of negative baggage which can’t be erased.

We’re all told we can conquer the world at our High School and College graduations, and 8 or 12 years later when we’re 30, we have all gone through job hunting frustrations, job loss, relationship failures (divorce for the really unlucky ones), dealt with countless A-holes, and pretty much figured out that we can’t “make the world a better place”. It’s a cruel cruel place out there and monetary enrichment and sexual adventures seem to be the only things that motivate people.

If you wake up single, no children, with thinning hair and in just an “ok” job at 30 like I did, you can’t help but feel a sense of melancholy when you compare yourself to the same day at 20. Likely in college, with tons of friends within a mile from where you live, healthy with a full head of hair, and women in their prime all around you left and right.

The only constant is change, but we shouldn’t feel too bad for getting old in the long run. It’s a privilege a lot of people don’t reach.

You go from being so optimistic and thinking you have your whole life ahead of you, you feel indomitable, children and family a distant notion, fast forward justa few years and you start to get this creeping prickling sensation of dread and you start to realize you probably aren’t going to find that woman of your dreams, you’re not going to have that family with a passel of children

I am 64. I have been single all my life, but I do have a kid. I have never been sick and there is nothing wrong with me even now except my joints are a little stiff and I need reading glasses. In my fifties I lost my sex drive entirely which I consider a blessing.

Sensing the end of life approaching is sobering. I don’t like it one bit. How can I die? It does not seem possible. But then I did not think my parents would die either.

One thing I think younger people should be mindful of — it certainly blind-sided me — is the loss of one’s parents. To lose the only people who ever loved you and cared about you unconditionally can be devastating. So try to spend time with them now while you still have them, overlook their faults, and tell them you love them. It may be later than you think.

This outlook lets one consider suicide as a valid option. Why waste years in old age when it just simply sucks when you can die sooner, get a new body sooner (if you are into rebirth/wheel of life religion) and enjoy life to its fullest once again. Shakespeare was right.

It may make things easier, but it does not give you back the joy and happyness you took for granted 20 years ago. It just takes away the worries how to pay your bills or if you can afford this or that. You can do all that, and its good. But it is no compensation. Not by a far cry.

When I was young, that’s all I did weekend nights. Now these same people seem like a bunch of idiots to me.

I was 31 when I went to US Army Infantry Basic training, and was 32 when I went through Officer Candidate School to become an Infantry officer. I made it through fine and suffered no more than the 18 year olds. My running was not as fast as when i was 24 (~5 minute miles), but i could get 6 minute miles. When I went back for the Infantry Officer’s Basic Course 2+ years later at age 34, the other, much younger, officers thought I was only a couple of years older than them. Truth was, while I could max out the pushups and situps in the Army Physical Fitness Test, I was having a hard time keeping my mile speed below 6:30. From 35 on, the decline was pretty dramatic, and I did not recover from injuries quickly. Some I did not recover from, and it cost me my active status. I am 58 now, and I have to say the aches are constant companions and reminders of all I did in the past. I loved being Infantry. I wish I had started earlier.

In Plato’s Republic, book 1, Socrates is fictionally quoted as saying regarding his advanced age, “I may mention Sophocles the poet, who was once asked in my presence, ‘How do you feel about love, Sophocles? are you still capable of it?’ to which he replied, ‘Hush! if you please: to my great delight I have escaped from it, and feel as if I had escaped from a frantic and savage master.’ I thought then, as I do now, that he spoke wisely. For unquestionably old age brings us profound repose and freedom from this and other passions.”

Most likely your stomach is sticking out because of a bigger curve in your low spine (called lordosis). Bigger curves in the spine also make you shorter as time goes on.

A lot of the physical endurance drop off is the cumulative effect over time of diet/lifestyle vices/decreased activity and those factors get unfairly conflated with purely aging.

If your stomach protrudes it is probably because you have visceral fat from drinking, poor diet or being sedentary, not because your testosterone is too low. Visceral fat is the most threatening to your health because it inhibits organ function and increases diabetes/heart disease risk.

I’m 40, just turned. A lot of people still think I’m in my late 20s and are floored to find out my real age.

I still get horny, but not nearly as much. Though at times I’ll get a spell of hornyness not unlike when I was in college. However if I touch a girl I’m attracted to, I’m rock hard in an instant, so no worries. I’m actually in a good place. My boner still works when it needs to, but I’m not getting boners just by looking at a girl in a bikini like when I was a teen. I have to actually touch her to get an erection. I still think about sex a lot but one thing that’s changed dramatically is that attraction is as much a mental thing as physical. I really “get off” on meeting a girl that impresses me and checks my personality boxes, not just looks good. Seeing a hot girl walking down the street stumbling drunk, face in her iphone is a huge turn off and my gut feeling is contempt more than attraction.

My hair and goatee have rapidly began greying since 35. No biggie though, nothing a $4 bottle of hair dye can’t fix. My hairline is intact for now, as is my father’s at age 65.

Going to the gym feels more and more like a chore ever year. It’s hard to keep myself consistent so I’m not seeing much in the way of gains. It’s more tiring now and heavy cardio absolutely destroys me. I get these sharp heart palpitations too under heavy cardio that scare the shit out of me.

Chronic constipation issues. Though that’s probably not that common for most guys my age. I know I need more fiber.

The slightly longer to squeeze the last drops of piss out that Roosh reports. I hadn’t even thought about that until he mentioned it. But it’s not even any big issue.

Scars take longer to heal. Weird random nerve ending tingles in my neck. Joint stiffness. More groaning as I reach over to pick something up.

I’m apprehensive about jumping off of anything more than a foot high. Something that only recently started occurring to me. Though I’m physically capable of jumping a fence, mentally I tense up at the though of doing it. Something that was unthinkable at age 22.

That feeling of resignation that those college hotties are off limits now and view you as an old creep for looking at them. Though visiting another country where young women don’t mind older men willing to exchange sex for financial stabilty(like SE Asia or Dominican Republic could change that).

On the plus side though, I’m more emotionally grounded. More red pill. See more shit for what it is. See the world with greater clarity and wisdom. I don’t get as easily provoked by daily annoyances. I have a more “big picture” view of things that is satisfying and I look forward to growing my knowledge and wisdom.

PS – I’ve noticed one feature that really ages people. Their jawline. When your jaw is no longer visible and chin, jaw and neck become indistinguishable, that’s what makes you look old. Do whatever you can to maintain a nice jawline. Stay fit and do jaw exercise. Often, whenever a guy is claimed to “look good for his age”, he almost always has his jawline intact. See David Beckham as an example: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/03/06/article-2110758-0A716E19000005DC-826_306x423.jpg

I’ve really noticed increased salt and alcohol sensitivity as I’ve aged, so I’m cutting back on both.

Still, I’ve been told I look 10-15 years younger than I am, I still have lots of hair on my head, and I have few lines on my face despite spending lots of time in the sun and water, so I must be doing something right.

At my gym I regularly see guys in their 40s-60s who are extremely fit. Their secret? They lift.

Also, as you get older and have achieved your goals–professional success, wealth, lots of sex, travel, etc.–it becomes even more important to re-define your purpose.

Take Male hormone replacement therapy. I heard they work. Once I hit around Mid-30 then I’m going to start taking them but I also feel and notice the effects of my body as I get older too. I can no longer get a morning wood anymore even after heavy sprinting and heavy squat workout. I literally have to take multiple Arginine, 5-HTP, some Choline and other mumbo jumbo supplements to get half erection.

But at the same time, I’m stretching my penis with weights to enlarge so maybe this has something to do with it.

I will tell you good things though. As I age, my urge for alcohol decreased to the point that I don’t even need to drink alcohol or even coffee to stay awake. Coffee is a poor vasodilator for the penis and it’s no good. IF you want to get it up instantly, take Niacin but don’t overdo it and don’t go over 500 mg since it has taxing effect on your liver.

My urge towards females has also decreased and my tolerance for girls yapping and moaning has decreased to the point that I prefer to communicate with a wall but irony is that I”m a hetereo-sexual male and the female scent and their touch is intoxicating and no matter how much yapping and bullshitting they radiate, a Man cannot resist a flesh of a young sultry woman.

These are the facts of life masquerading as self defeatism. If there is something you want in life and you don’t have it, its because you don’t want it bad enough, that’s the long and short of it.

My senior year of high school I went to TIjuana, Mexico for a house building immersion trip. The team I was assigned to had Varsity Athletes in it, Football and Baseball.

When it came time to mix the cement, not a single person on our team, myself included could mix the cement, but the 64 year old grandpa of the family we were building a house for mixed that cement with a regular shovel like it was nothing. If he can do that, then anyone can.

Either you’re making excuses for why you don’t have the things you want, or you are going after it. Many choose to make excuses because they don’t want to admit to themselves that they don’t have what it takes. Whats the point of breathing if you don’t have the testicular fortitude to go after what you want?

You always seem to be writing about the things I’m thinking. I’m about the same age as you, have the same existential crisis, the same fucking career. But I’m not about to blog about how women shouldn’t have the right to vote because too many people know where I live.

My sex drive didn’t fall off until my 40s. I seem to take forever and sometimes not orgasm at all. Taking Viagra. Didn’t need it before. Viagra affects eye sight. Never knew there’s correlation between eye sight and sex drive. All the masturbation jokes are true. So don’t take Viagra and drive. Not a good combination. Aging doesn’t help with driving skills either. Can’t see and can’t react.

My joints didn’t have a problem yet, but my muscles are cramping regularly. Need to stretch out more and don’t be in one position too long.

Adding more weight so watch your diet. Easy to have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high sugar/glucose. Developed some food allergies.

Using the restroom more often. You just need to go more despite feeling like you haven’t finished.

Yeah, 30 is still close to the peak. I’m 42 and taking 3 of my kids on a backpack trip this weekend. I can already feel the hurt.

I’m knocking down 40s door and i feel exactly zero of these things. May I suggest increase your clean water intake (at least a gallon a day, more on workout days), that will help with problems 2 thru 7. Cut out all grain, especially wheat (and limit/eliminate all other quick carbs) which will help with problem 7. And as for problem 1, to hell with sex (or at least to hell with actively pursuing it, it will fall into your lap more than you think). Much better ways to spend your time.

Agreed. I used to drink a gallon of water a day (guessing), and now it’s less than a glass. I have purified R.O. filter at home and will start forcing myself to drink more. It helps with skin clarity and overall attractiveness as well. And looking into cutting out grains completely.

It has direct effect on skin. Your brain gets the most water first with skin being last. Chronic dehydration can wreck an appearance

There is no clear evidence to support this claim at all. There is a severe lack of research showing that drinking extra water has any impact at all on skin appearance lol

cut out all carbs and you’ll feel nothing but fatigue.

Didn’t say all carbs. All quick carbs. Wheat, rice, sugar, grains, etc. Vegetables supply all the carbs needed (which actually none are needed). And moderate fruit if ya need that “sugar” boost. I can’t speak first hand, but it is my understanding that once the body fully goes into ketosis, the fatigue actually goes away. What I can attest to is that restricted/minimal carb intake has me feeling great always. I feel like crap on days I cheat.

Compared to the changes a woman sees when she reaches her 30s these are trivial. I wasn’t getting laid at 20, so have no point of reference, but still have a strong enough sex drive in my 30s. I notice some stiffer joints, but I have nothing to complain about other than the belly, which I can fix by doing some regular cardio, and some wrinkling in the face (until the last year or two could pass as a college guy.. now only some of the time). I suppose I will give the beauty industry some money and I’m sure can find something to reduce the facial aging or hide it.

Dear friends, Roosh is right, so pay attention to him young lads. Speaking as a fit 60 year old, I can tell you that it is down hill from about age 25. However, what you need to do is make the decline a gentle one down a grassy slope, rather than a crash over a cliff. You can still be tough and manly. See my “Zombie Apocalypse: Barbarians, Blood and Blades in the New Dark Age” via Amazon Kindle, on how to do this.
