On Today's Episode: What damage is the American diet doing to millions of people who have mindlessly bought into the misinformation about fats, “healthy” processed foods, and three square meals. For years we’ve looked at diets all wrong, and as research and technology is making more advances we can finally start to assess our individual risks for longevity and what the path to a longer healthier life is on a personal level. Peter Attia is the co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of the popular fasting app, you probably have downloaded right now, Zero, and the bestselling author, podcast host, and longevity health expert. His latest book, Outlive, debunks many of the ideas you may have sworn by around diet and its ability to optimize your lifespan. What we’re getting wrong about longevity?
– Diet isn’t the cure-all it was presented to be
– Someone with an obese BMI can be metabolically fit
– A lean person who’s metabolically unhealthy has worst outcomes Peter is exposing common misbeliefs around longevity with his groundbreaking manifesto.This episode is a chance to expand your knowledge and distinguish the differences between lifespan and health-span. Check out Peter Attia’s latest book, Outlive, The Science and Art of Longevity: https://www.amazon.com/Outlive-Longevity-Peter-Attia-MD/dp/0593236599 QUOTES: “If you consider the difference between a person that doesn’t have type 2 diabetes and someone who does, it’s literally only the difference of one teaspoon of sugar in the blood.” “High cardio-respiratory fitness and high muscle mass and strength are more predictive of a long life than anything else we know.” “What good is it to have a brain that works if your body actually does not.” “Living longer is not accomplished by living longer with disease. Living longer is accomplished by living longer without disease.” “True prevention needs a set of tools that medicine 2.0 doesn’t participate in. Medicine 2.0, which is the medical system that everyone of us who’s trained goes through, is largely a pharmacologic playbook.” Follow Peter Attia: Website: https://peterattiamd.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PeterAttiaMD Twitter: https://twitter.com/peterattiamd Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/peterattiamd/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/peterattiamd/ Podcast: https://peterattiamd.com/podcast/
