Community Discussion Forum Adults and PKU Anyone w/ PKU try to build lots of muscle? Reply To: Anyone w/ PKU try to build lots of muscle?


Wow. That's some serious muscle.  Good for you.  Yes, I hope to make it to the gym again soon.  I have a career in politics so my schedule is rather hectic and on call if you will.  My before and after pics are silly haha.  Night and day difference I tell you. 

But I think we can all agree that physical fitness is one of the best things you can do to cope with the PKU diet / lifestyle.  And what's also true is that our diet constraints force us to eat healthier… The toxins from poultry and fatty foods we are not exposed to.  I've heard that our life expectancy is a lot longer than that of the ordinary person.  Time will tell I guess.
