But then school and youth were over and we entered the adult world: responsibilities, families, careers, deadlines, the traffic commute, and bills to pay.</font></p> <p><font face="times new roman" color="black" size="3">Life slowly changes. Many start to smoke. For some it's coffee in the morning to get going, and alcohol in the evenings to socialize, and help with stress. As we grow into middle age, we at times enjoy a week's worth of food with all of the fat, salt, sweets, and drink - all in one evening. Activity slows, and we put on the pounds: our waistlines grow, we get used to the puffy look, and the gait slows. </font></p> <p><font face="times new roman" color="black" size="3">And life goes on: successes at work, children being raised, and the fast pace of life. But we cope. Stress, food, coffee, work, alcohol, less sleep, aspirin, headaches, more food, antacids, work, nicer home, indigestion, bigger clothes, more stress, better car, more doctors visits, less energy. The cycle just becomes normal life.</font></p> <p><font face="times new roman" color="black" size="3">This isn't aging. This is lifestyle and it seems to catch up with us all at once. The big diagnosis is such a shock: cancer, heart disease, back problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, cirrhosis, impotence, ulcers, etc.</font></p> <p><font face="times new roman" color="black" size="3">It's never too late to regain your health.
