We kick off the episode by unpacking the intricacies of lifespan, health span, and longevity, along with Attia’s preventative health strategies that transcend the typical advice. It will leave you considering not just how long you live, but how well.

We address the pivotal role of physical activity, emphasizing that diet alone won’t get us to our best selves. The surprising effects of exercise on conditions like type two diabetes are profound, and we debunk the myths while discussing the psychological barriers that might be holding you back from starting.
