@charlie12 I dont think he is saying that you have to be perfect, I think he is saying that there may be some glaring inadequacies in your lifestyle that could benefit from reduction or abstinence. You need to be able to baseline people to figure out how to advise them is what I feel he is saying. I don’t think he is looking to judge. I feel like this forum, for the most part, has transcended those tendencies to judge and we are all just here to help each other. We ALWAYS ask for labs and range values so that we can do the same. I think that this is just the next logical step.
Maybe I am misunderstanding you and/or physio and if that’s the case I apologize. Ive been home sick for days reading forums, drinking black coffee, blowing my nose, using my netipot, and trying to not treat myself with treats because I am sick. I’m off my game!
