Kelly Nicole

Hi! I am a 22 year old who was recently in a car collision. After taking 3 months from recovering from the hip disolcation and fracture I suffered from the accident, I was wondering if practicing yoga would be a safe and beneficial workout for my hip? Thanks!


His diet may well have hastened his death. ALS and CR do not work well together. ALS patients have difficulty getting enough calories and nutrients. Further, a reduced calorie diet seems prone to exacerbate the muscle loss. We do have ways to prolong life, and do so by diet, exercise, and nutrition. The body may well not be suitable to live past 120. Evolution would not self select for beneficial attributes after reproduction-any traits would not be passed along.
Third, Lisa looks bad because she had little fat in her face. WIthout this filler, people look old. Without restriction of overall calories, just fasting every other day can slow aging somewhat. Perhaps, instead of living 2x as long, we learn to get more meaning from life instead.

I can't believe the shallowness of the comment being so critical of Lisa and her father. First, Lisa's father's death had nothing to do with CR. He contracted some weird neurological disorder with no cure, and no definitive idea the pathology (why or how it happened. He told me he thought he it was a result of exposure in the BioDome).

Secondly, no one has figured out how to prevent death or significantly prolong life. But many have figured out ways to improve their lives while alive. As someone who eats too much, I always admired the zest and energy in both Lisa and her father. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I bless both of them for their contributions and ceaseless work to improve the lives of others, for their service and warmth.


I was interested in calorie restriction until I saw how the people who are practicing it looked. Wow! Lisa, you looked emaciated and sick...your skin is terrible! Your Dad did not manage to extend his own life...not exactly the endorsement I was looking for.
