MOD,
I agree. People use drugs and alcohol in an attempt to be happy. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "You might be healthy avoiding drugs, alcohol, and fast food, but I'd rather die you and happy than old and miserable". I usually respond with "I am happy. Are you really happy? You seem pretty edgy when you're not drunk, or run out of cigarettes". I usually get a half-assed answer and then the person changes the subject.

I think it's pretty clear that eating a ton of protein isn't a great idea. I always felt best on a high fat, low carb (but definitely high vegetable), moderate-low protein diet. I think when it comes to a diet tailored toward longevity whole foods, low calories, and lower protein (lower than Cordain recommendations) is the way to go. My meals recently have meat as a supplemental food, with lots of vegetables, healthy fats, some nuts, and some fruit. Works good for feeling healthy, but I don't know how it would go over for athletes.

Who ever said what competitive athletes do is healthy in terms of longevity and disease prevention? If you get paid to do athletic events and have to eat for that income...that's one thing....everything else is a lifestyle choice...as you can go overboard on it...or find a happy moderation that still promotes long term health. Sounds like you have a good plan that works....and that is all that matters.

Sounds good to me.
