64. I won't touch that shit with a 20 foot pole, anymore.
I gave up most of it not long after my 30th birthday, along with making other lifestyle changes.

Haven't eaten red meat in years, much less a fast food burger, although I admit to occasionally being tempted by In & Out.

No overly processed foods, bleached grains, High Fructose Corn Syrup or hydrogenated oils. No shitty preservatives or crappy mass-produced snacks. No soda, sugary drinks or heavy sugar foods in general. My drinks of choice are coffee and tea, preferably green and unsweetened.

Mostly, now, I eat lower on the food chain, no fried food, not a whole lot of dairy (nonfat milk in lattes being the exception) .. I eat organic whenever possible, free range or sustainable fish & poultry. I had a year or so where I was completely vegetarian but that didn't last.

In the long run, though, it's been years since I overhauled my diet and I can honestly say that, along with regular exercise, it's made all the difference in the world. I'm in better shape than I was when I was 25, and I feel great.
