How bout yous guys all eat healthy & whole foods, stay hydrated daily, surf a real damn lot and keep bodyweight low, manage stress, and get laid on a regular basis. Save all your duckets by not buying any snake oils and you'll be able to support this aforementioned existence. Especially if you stay away from booze and butts. $10+ per pack of cigs in MA!! Wow!!
Keep it simple. Live clean and healthy. Your genetics already have decided quite a bit of your destiny, but you can change some of it. No magic pill, just do what you're supposed to. And surf a real damn lot. Ponce de Leon did.
Yep surfing will keep you young! Leave the GNC to the weighlifting dudes who can't put their arms down.
I'm making an assumption here but most of the Japanese population probably does not eat your grocery store species of fish like tuna, swordfish, etc. All these are slow growing and have higher mercury content. If we moved our fish consumption to smaller schooling fish that the larger fish are feeding you could get the same benefits of a fish diet without the worries of contamination.

You are better off spending some money on fish and eating that a couple times a week. Much more effective.
Here is the cancer study:
I think you have to eat a lot of Omega 3 containing foods to get to the level found in the study. I still believe in a diet that incorporates fish at least a couple times a week.
As for the Japanese, they don't just eat fish all the time. Their diets are lighter in general, leading to a greatly reduced risk of heart disease (the #1 killer). Obesity is our main problem in the USA.
Brah, I've got nearly two decades of education and anecdotal experience in the application and practice of every possible weight training and diet regimen out there. Yet I don't even need to lift anymore, and haven't in four months. I charge every day there's swell and hit the Carver whether there's swell or not. Joint health has never been better, physique looks like I'm still lifting plenty, and well-being is very high. I'm not anti-weights now, but there's too many people out there that think lifting weights is everything and have no focus on getting functional activity in something like surfing.

the thought of all that tight slim trim not being serviced makes me sad :(
I will gladly help the situation and service 2, 3, maybe even 4 a day....
What's "the Carver"? Not messing with you if its something obvious that I should know. Just curious.

I own one and like it a lot, as obviously does EMS, and many other SI members. For more info:
There have also been previous SI threads discussing Carvers. You probably already know this, but can find these discussions using the forum search feature.
I agree with everyone who recommends a balanced diet of whole foods and superfoods ( garlic, lime, hot peppers, etc.) that are packed with high levels of nutrients that can be easily absorbed by the body.
Another thing to consider when discussing fish oil: The harvesting of krill and other base species to manufacture fish oil is doing a lot of harm to the natural balance of the oceanic ecosystem. These are the organisms that support the whole food chain. Once they are diminished, the rest of the species dependent on them as a primary food source will face collapse.
Eat lots of splittail snapper. This will keep you healthy and in shape to surf all day, err day.
