We begin our conversation with the question “What exactly does “outlive” mean? Referring to “healthspan” (typically defined as the period of life when we are free from disability or disease), outlive is the ability to die perhaps with disability or disease but not die due to disability or disease. Dr. Attia discusses how, through lifestyle choices, we can outlive the “four horsemen”: heart disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disease, and type 2 diabetes and related metabolic dysfunction. These diseases develop from the accumulation of multiple risk factors typically causing a “slow death”. Dr. Attia describes how each risk factor is relatively easy to reduce or eliminate through lifestyle choices. The primary risk factors include metabolic health, diet and sleep, exercise, and emotional health. We discuss briefly each risk factor, then dive into what Dr. Attia calls the “most potent longevity drug” exercise! We focus on four primary types of exercise that together have tremendous effect on overall health and wellness and the ability to OUTLIVE. With Archnell’s expertise input, we review Strength, Aerobic efficiency, Max Aerobic output (VO2 max), and stability. Archnell describes what each is, how to measure each, and some great examples of each giving our listeners a guideline to begin or continue to OUTLIVE!
