Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Michelle’s story of seeing her mother’s health declined in the last years of her life
  • What causes premature aging
  • Strategies to preserve your muscle mass
  • Tips on how to age gracefully 
  • AgelessLX

Key Takeaways:

  • The first domino in the aging cascade flips on when we lose muscle. And we start losing muscle in our 30s.
  • The more you yo-yo diet, the more muscle you lose. And when you start losing muscle, your metabolism starts slowing down.
  • Some staggering statistics that suggest that up to 60% of women over 50 are not eating enough protein.
  • When you lose muscle, that sets the stage to lose collagen. And that sets the stage to lose bone.
  • When you sleep, that’s when your body does its healing and building and regenerating. That’s when you have the opportunity to heal your muscle and grow muscle.
  • It’s better to make your own collagen than to take collagen.
  • Lack of grip strength is tied to all-cause mortality. That means that, all things being equal, you will live a shorter lifespan if you are weak.

 

Action Steps:

  • Preserve your muscle mass
  • Focus on whole foods and whole sources of protein.
  • Exercise or get movement into your day by engaging in various activities.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Get supplementation.

 

Michele said:

“Little hinges swing big doors. When you focus on making the right changes, you can make a huge impact on the health and longevity and the quality of your life as you age.”

 

“The stronger you become, the better you live. And I dare say it, you live longer but you live better.”

 

“No matter where you start, it’s never too late. You can actually reverse and rejuvenate your life.”
