#97 Build Muscle to Increase Metabolic Rate and Promote Longevity with Sal di Stefano

January 16, 2019

They say that eating fewer calories may potentially make you live longer. Unfortunately, it can also predispose you to diabetes, obesity, and insulin resistance, if you end up causing metabolic damage.

One of the best ways of combatting the ailments of modern living, such as sedentarism, overeating, losing strength and bone density is to do resistance training. Building muscle and strength make you burn more calories when doing nothing and it also protects against many of the other age-related diseases. It's incredibly important for longevity.

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I'm you host Siim Land and our guest today is Sal di Stefano. Sal's been a personal trainer for over 20 years and now he's one of the hosts of the Mind Pump Podcast that talks about raw fitness truths and misconceptions.

#96 Is Fasting the Missing Piece of Your Health

January 13, 2019

Could it be that intermittent fasting is the missing piece of your health? 

Of course, the foundation of health and wellness is proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management, but I'd say that fasting tends to be somewhat neglected in that regard.

#91 How to Adapt to Intermittent Fasting Q&A

December 22, 2018

Charles Darwin said: "It is not the strongest nor the most intelligent of the species that survives. It is the one most adaptable to change."

That's why I think the ability to adapt to different nutritional and environmental stressors is such a vital component to optimal health and longevity.

They say there are a lot of benefits to intermittent fasting. However, it doesn't matter how good it is if you're not able to fast at all. That's why you'd want to follow certain guidelines and recommendations to make it easier.
