Not proven: While the typical American diet with processed foods is not truly "addictive", eating a lot of processed foods, sugars, fats, alcohol, etc, presents a challenge to the body's metabolism.

There is no strong evidence that it will cause you to have a change in your prescription. Use your eyes, but give them a break so they don't get dry and irritated. ...Read more

You are 44 years: Old, this has more to do with the normal loss of accommodation we all get after age 40, called presbyopia.

What are some types of crabs that I can eat along with my protein shake that would get me bigger?
Eat real food: Eating real food is best, instead of processed proteins. Crabs? My vote is Dungeness, with lots of crabmeat and a softer shell that's easy to take off (and Dungeness is delicious). A second choice is blue crab, but it is smaller and has a harder shell. Crabs are expensive, so eating less expensive fish twice a week will provide good protein and omega-3 fish oils. Limit seafood to 2-3 times a week. ...Read more
