Getting Healthy in the Nude


AANR profiles my road to better health through diet, exercise, and nude recreation. Link here.
Is nudism/naturism the answer to better health? Not entirely, of course. It takes some regular exercise and sensible eating. We made the conscious decision not to get a golf cart, which forces us to walk back and forth from our campsite to the pool, pavilion and bathhouse, pulling our cart filled with cooler, towels, chairs and whatever else is needed for the day. We drink moderately, and after watching two parents waste away from tobacco addiction, we don't smoke at all.
For my wife and I, it's not so much about weight loss as it is about feeling good and generally looking better. We don't own a bathroom scale and we don't count calories. 
In mid-July I turned 57 years old. At Cedar Trails, when some friends learned that it was my birthday, they told both my wife and I that they would not have been able to guess that we were that old. Needless to say it's always great to hear a compliment, and when we got back home I began digging through photos of myself from a decade ago, and was somewhat shocked to see how much healthier I looked. That's what prompted me to write about this.

I'm proud of you. It is important to stay healthy and work out as we get older. What a great example. I'm just going to have 1 happy meal for lunch today instead of 2 because of your advice.

Seriously, thank you for sharing.

Looking good. From the photo, I can see a noticeable difference from a couple years ago.

I agree, nudism isn't the answer to better health but can certainly be part of it. Becoming a naturist helped motivate me toward a healthier lifestyle and without the clothes, it's easier to see the changes.
