not really OT: fat around the belly
Posted by: noughties ()
Date: May 5, 2019 19:17

This has been debatted before, I know. Maybe some new light can be "shed"?. However, neither Mick, Ronnie or Charlie have any visible fat around their belly, as people their age usually get. How come? Is it because they are rockers, whatever that implies? Btw, you also see that drug addicts are very slim.

It's simple: Keep busy and don't overeat. But when you get older there are other factors involved. Such as losing to much weight which is even more dangerous.

Not all addicts are/were slim!
Check out photos of one of Charlie's jazz heroes...the one and only Charlie Parker.
Perhaps he ate the wrong food in addition to doing copious amounts of drugs.

It's really not simple. There are a lot of 60- and 70-year olds who work out and eat right, and still develop a mid-section paunch, even if it's a tiny one.

Belly fat accumulates in males as testosterone production decreases. Even Gary Player, the golfer, who's in his 80s and is in incredible physical shape, has a little paunch.

We all know what Mick does to stay in shape, but how Ronnie and Charlie stay so slim, I don't know.

anyhow – it's an interessing exception of the general rule "stay in this band or get fat" (just think of Mick Taylor etc)

Everyone ( minis healthy issues ) is capable of not getting paunchy in the belly. When your testosterone production decreases than eat less and exercise. Obviously the three Stones made a decision to stay thin. I respect that. i have little tolerance for people who can't control their weight. If it was my band I would tell the bass player to straighten up or he is out.

They don't eat sugar. Belly fat is most often caused by sugar : ice creams, soda, corn syrup hidden in most junk food, etc etc...
Fat is NOT your enemy, sugar is. Human metabolism has been dealing with animal or vegetal fats for 10000 years. It has not been programmed with the onslaught of sugars "modern" (read degenerate) food that's been available since the 70's.

Very true. The bogus "low fat" craze (replaced with carbs and sugar) is one of the worst things that ever happened to Western diets.

It doesn't help that the word "fat" is so loaded that seeing it on labels automatically makes people it's bad for you, when protein and healthy fats should be a key foundation of your diet.

I always remember reading an article once that mentioned that Keith Richards would hang out with John Belushi and they would sometimes do over to Mick Jagger's apartment. Jagger always kept very little food around ( wanted to stay thin ) and Belushi would ride him about it all the time and he even started bringing alot of food over with him to load up Jagger's fridge. The attitude of a guy who had pride and wanted to stay thin vs an attitude of a fat slob who thought there was something wrong with being thin. Way too many in the second category.

Th Stones are post-war children. After WWII there was not that much food in the UK (or in continental Europe) and I'm sure there were very very little sweet foods available. A candy would be sth you get occasionnally as a reward.

I'm sure the Stones have more or less consciously kept that "war diet".
I mean can you imagine dapper Charlie chewing on a big burger while slurping a bucket of soda? >grinning smiley<

I've gone from 110kgs down to 73kgs (17.5 stone down to 11.4). I work out, I run half marathons (want to do the full 26 miles next year), 10km races, and park runs. The thing is: once you get into it, you want to keep doing it, and keep trim. I still have a little bit of a pot belly, but that could be down to being 48 years' old.

I also think running is seriously good for your mental health - check out Bella McKie's blogs on running, and her book Jog On.

What's even more surprising is that they don't wear glasses. If I wear contacts I can't read sh*t. So I resorted to multifocal glasses.
But they don't seem to have any of that sort of problems. And they are still 25 years older than me..

eye surgery? Anyhow: how really wants to see the audience? (I wouldn't even be able to see the drums from front rows without my glasses)
