    So after years of looking and reading into the "optimal diet" (at least basic guidelines for one) I feel pretty confident that the recommendations of Ray Peat pretty much encompass that, and I am finally satisfied.

    I can't really say the same about fitness and strength training though, I'm still searching. Long ago I thought crossfit was it, and I've really changed my mind on that.

    I know this a very open ended question, that depends highly on the individual, but so does a persons diet and Ray Peat seems to have given just the right amount of broad yet specific recommendations that we all can use as a starting point.

    So is there anyone or anything out there that you feel is up to par with Peat in regards to keeping a healthy, strong body for life. I know Dr. Peat favors some amount of strength training, and not so much endurance exercise, but how about a source out there with some more specifics on this?

    "Some muscle-building resistance exercise might help to increase the anabolic ratio, reducing the belly fat."
    "Concentric resistance training has an anabolic effect on the whole body. Sprinting is probably o.k. Endurance exercise is the worst. I don't think martial arts are necessarily too stressful." ... tandi.html

    "Intense exercise damages cells in ways that cumulatively impair metabolism." ... ideas.html

    I would probably just stick to doing weight sessions for 30-45, possibly 3x per week with 2 minutes rest between each set. Probably wouldn't do any cardio.

    Yeah basically what I do though 4-5 times/week. Easy recovery, never more than very mild muscle soreness. Gain enough muscle to be happy with the look, lol vanity. Do hit the heavy bag or pads for about 10 minutes x3 per week. That's enough 'cardio', lol but I do it to keep my hand speed and accuracy good rather than for other reasons like 'fitness'.
