How old was he when he had that heart attack?

Hi died in 2011 at the age of 80. He was a marathon runner in the '50s and '60s.

The Mediterranean areas along the coast have been known to have among the lowest incidents of heart attacks and also cancer for a while, even though they are heavy smokers. The diet includes among things the OVOO, fresh seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables, and unadulterated wine, along with very little processed food.

I think that what needs to be taken away from this diet is that the least nutritional part of the typical American diet is the box it comes in.

That's the wrong John Kelley. Johnny Kelley the Elder died at the age of 96. He was still running marathons well into his 80s.

I wanted to make the point, dieing at the age of 96 of a heart attack is different from dieing at the age of 56 for the same reason.

I'm a firm believer that when your number is up then your number is up.

Do and eat what makes you happy during this short journey we call life.

If eating or not eating something makes you happy then go for it.

Moderation in just about everything is a good thing.

I'm A-Fibber and no doctor has given me any cause and effect.
Zorched 3 times and went back to fibbing every time.
It is what it is.

Enjoy life and don't sweat the small stuff.

There is no miracle answer to live forever.




Please excuse my rant.

James Fixx, anyone remember him? He was the runner's guru,wrote several books, and died at age 52 of a massive heart attack.

I was looking at the Mayo Clinic Diet today...there's no way I could get recommended portions of carbohydrates in every day. I did take a look inside the book--getting rid of 5 bad habits and establishing 5 good habits...it all made a lot of sense, but way too many carbs for me. Recent Canadian research has identified regional areas of obesity and that 25-33% of adult Canadians are obese. Also in the news was the high sodium content of restaurant food (which, btw, the Mayo diet recommends not eating out because one eats more when dining out). And, of course breakfast is highlighted and how to get in the habit of eating breakfast.

There were two John Kelly's. Johnny Kelly is not the one who had the heart attack in his 30's or 40's.
