In part three of this four-part series, I pose the important question of whether healthy, fit, athletic types might not need to indulge in fasting, keto, low-carb, low-fat, time restricted feeding and other so-called hormetic dietary stressors when we have “redundant pathways” we can access to optimize metabolic and cellular function. Similarly, le…

Hi listeners! Here comes a great show about fitness suggestions for anti-aging—the critical objective to age gracefully rather than follow in line into the accelerate-decline-suffering-and demise pattern that we see all around us, thinking it’s a part of chronological aging or that it’s normal. In fact, it’s absolutely not normal—I love the quote f…
