The Nutrition Playbook to Break 100

That’s your age, not your golf score!

 

Your age is a given. Growing old is a choice. As adults get older, they’re often told to slow down and sit down. I have a completely different philosophy. I tell them to speed up and stand up. Whether they’re in their 50’s or 90’s, my prescription is the same…move. Movement is medicine. But in order to be more physical, you need to feed your body. You may have managed to slide through life without any obvious ramifications by feeding your body years of soda, chips, steaks, and pepperoni pizzas, but it’s not enough to just fill up the tank. Eventually, your muscles, memory, and game face will tell all. 

Have you ever whined, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another,” as you make another visit to the doctor? Well, the chain reaction of functional breakdowns in older age is no coincidence. The human body is an amazing high-performance machine, and it needs to accelerate, rebuild, repair, maneuver, and make decisions every minute of the day. It can’t do that if your biological pit crews (a.k.a. your cells, organs, and tissues) don’t have what they need to do their job. 

By having an understanding of the causes and effects of “growing old”, you can adjust the way you live. Armed with the right training, tools, and tips in this nutrition playbook, you can control how well you feel, how fast you age, and how ably you break 100!
