    ok i read an article provided with pics of five men who decided to take photos spanning through their lives. Snapped in the same location over a period of years. Funny enough when they were in their youth they were pretty much looking healthy. But as they got older, they lost all resemblance of their former selves. I wonder...if they made working out a priority, would they have aged better? Guys take a look. oo please read the article as well. As each of them had altering life experiences which contributed how they look now.

    Only working out? No.

    Including a good/healthy diet? Yes.

    Maybe some. But you just age. It especially hits in your 40s.

    Wow, those guys looked like they aged a good 40 years. Sunscreen is your friend.

    Sad. They are only about 48. These guys don't look like they took good care of themselves. They could have looked a whole lot better than they do.........no excuse for letting themselves go to pot at 48. They look like they're eating the S.A.D. diet (standard American diet). No gym time. No exercise. No watching weight. The second guy in line especially - - - - pathetic.

    You can actually look better as you age, within reason, if you take corrective action. I look way better at 43 than I did even 5 years ago. Losing weight certainly helped, and I'm less baby-faced, heheheh.

    Also, I have to throw my support behind those recommending sunscreen and staying out of the sun. Sun damage ages you like crazy.

    A conversation with the dermatologist while having a tumor removed from my back has made me paranoid about sun now. what was particularly impressive was hearing that the exposure that caused the tumor was a long time ago. As a kid, I used to fight going outside. hmm... I have a red head's complexion. It all adds up.

    Wtf happened to the guy on the far left? He looked good in 87 and looked like death 5 years later. Ironically he's the guy that looks the best now. You could tell that the guy that's second to the left and the guy in the middle weren't going to age well by looking at the first picture.

    Why being so judgemental and pessimistic? Of course people get old. It happens to everyone, and it has always been like that. And Not everyone have the same priorities in life. Why looking down on someone who doesn't have the same lifestyle as you?
    More than a bunch of guys getting old, I rather see good friends smiling and happy for their friendship that lasts through the years...

    no one is looking down...well at least not me. i posted the thread to demonstrate that aging simply was not an excuse to let oneself go....life can be hard yes but shit..it gets better if you take care of your damn health and physique.

    That's just what happens when you get older. You may as well accept it, because if you try to battle it with needles and surgeries, you're going to end up looking like a Bravo housewife--and the permanent duck-lip trend won't be so trendy in 20 or 30 years.

    Well, I'm only 34, but I already have arthritis and have had these bizarre multiple-sclerosis-like neurological symptoms for about three years, so I feel a lot older...and I can tell you, when your body hurts or you don't have the energy to get out of bed, you stop fighting it after a while. Nature will take its course. Hopefully you'll realize as you make it to 30, 40, 50 and beyond that a rock-hard body isn't the primary purpose of living.

    this is a men's issue sir....i have never seen men go under the knife if they are aging drastically. i'm talking more along the lines of proper diet and working out..and if all fails...shaving your head.

    you sir just won that argument....but at the same time...the exhibit you presented
    ...he surrounds himself with the worst form of females....no man goes out his way to get a facelift...as men if we make exercise mandatory ..we tend to look better as we age so i dont know what got into his head.

    I ate lunch at a table with him at an event probably close to ten years ago. I didn't have any idea who he was, but I couldn't stop myself from staring at his strangely rearranged face. It was much stranger looking in person than it appears in photos.

    That was their time line. Pretty sad/pathetic.
    As you look at their progression through life, you can see that they really didn't take care of themselves. Doesn't appear any of them has done any weight training. Nor does it appear that they followed any sort of diet.
    There are hundreds of men on this site alone who are in their 40-50s that look phenomenal!!!!

    And it doesn't take 30 yrs to see the deterioration due to non-exercise and a crappy diet. Went to my 10 yrs HS reunion 2 yrs ago. And you can tell who did and did not take care of themselves.

    Other than a physical impediment, there is no excuse to let yourself go. EVERYONE has a minimum of an hour a day to exercise.

    Of course I think it is good to exercise and take care of your skin and of what you eat. But I don't think it is that healthy to spend your time desperately trying to look young and go against nature. I am not talking about you because I don't know you.
    Some people are really happy when they get older, and that makes me think that there is a big difference between "being healthy" and "working out". icon_smile.gif
