Dr. Peter Attia’s Rule: Forget Expensive NAD Supplements & Nutrition Controversy–Focus on THIS

High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

Dr. Peter Attia suggests we forget expensive NAD supplements and nutrition fads and focus instead on exercise as the primary tool to support longevity. Support Healthy Hydration and Exercise Performance with the new Electrolyte Stix by MYOXCIENCE Nutrition: bit.ly/electrolyte-stix Save with code podcast at checkout Link to Video and References: https://bit.ly/dr-attias-rule Time Stamps:  01:39 Exercise has a huge impact upon disease and death from all causes and overall, all-cause mortality. 02:34 Attia’s Rule: Don’t quibble about nutrition or supplementation until you dial in your exercise/strength. 05:05 Exercise is a drug. Muscle is an organ that releases hormones. 06:20 Exercise impacts many psychiatric and neurologic diseases: schizophrenia, stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as dementia, Parkinson’s and MS. 08:45 Stimulated muscle releases peptides, and hormone-like mediators called exerkines or myokines. 10:05 Resistance training causes muscle to release an extra-cellular vesical that tells fat cells to release stored energy to be burned as fuel during exercise. 12:40 Ageing individuals with low muscle mass have a 200% increase in all-cause mortality compared to those with high muscle mass. 13:00 Low strength is a 250% greater risk of all-cause mortality, over high strength. 14:00 Prioritize strength. Get stronger. 15:10 Strength reduces rapidly with ageing, even faster than age-related muscle loss.

Podcast Notes Playlist: Fitness

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Only by clearly defining what you want in your last decade of life can you work backwards and put in place a plan to get thereTwo vectors of longevity: (1) lifespan: literally whether you are alive and breathing; (2) healthspan: how many healthy years you live – biomarkers matter less, physical & performance tests matter more (DEXA scan, VO2, fat oxidation, emotional state, etc.)ApoB is the single most important biomarker to measure – be proactive in obtaining this as early as possible! It’s uncommon in the U.S. though used in Europe & other places as part of regular health check You should monitor weight but an annual DEXA scan is more valuable than tracking BMI“There’s not one thing I’ll tell patients that is more important than exercising.” – Peter Attia“Strength training is an essential part of our existence. It’s never to late to start but you should never stop.” – Peter AttiaTry the back casting thought experiment: In detail, what do you want the last 10 years of life to look like? Then you can plan and live accordingly. Until you do, everything is abstract.Peter Attia on the Women’s Health Initiative that deterred the medical community from hormone replacement therapy for women: “It’s hands down the biggest screw up of the entire medical field in the last 25 years.” – Peter AttiaPhilosophical differences in prevention – Medicine 2.0: we’ll treat you if it seems like disease is imminent in the next 5-10 years; Medicine 3.0: treat the causative agent nowRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgMy guest this episode is Dr. Peter Attia, M.D., who trained at Stanford University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Hospital and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Attia is host of The Drive podcast and is a world expert on behavioral approaches, nutritional interventions, supplementation and pharmacological techniques to improve lifespan, healthspan and athletic performance. We discuss how best to evaluate your health status using routine blood work, body scans and regular tests of physical strength and endurance. Dr. Attia explains what he uses with his patients to “back-cast” their health goals as a way to design their exercise and nutritional programs. We also discuss hormone modulation and replacement therapy for both men and women. We explain how cholesterol and related factors contribute to cardiovascular disease risk and how to monitor and mitigate that risk. Dr. Attia details various supplementation, nutrition, exercise and prescription approaches useful to people in every decade of life to improve vitality, reduce their risk of disease and increase the number of years sustaining peak cognitive and physical health.  Thank you to our sponsors AG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/huberman Thesis: https://takethesis.com/huberman InsideTracker: https://insidetracker.com/huberman Helix Sleep: https://helixsleep.com/huberman Supplements from Momentous https://www.livemomentous.com/huberman For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com Timestamps (00:00:00) Assessing Health Status & Improving Vitality  (00:02:51) Momentous Supplements  (00:03:46) Thesis, InsideTracker, Helix Sleep  (00:07:29) Lifespan: Bloodwork & Biomarkers Testing, The “4 Horseman of Disease”  (00:11:51) Healthspan: Functional Testing, Cognitive & Emotional States  (00:13:59) Blood Testing: Best Frequency  (00:16:01) DEXA Scan: Lean Mass & Fat, Bone Mineral Density & Osteoporosis  (00:22:33) Bone Mineral Density & Age-Related Decline, Strength Training, Corticosteroids  (00:29:24) Osteopenia & Osteoporosis Diagnosis, Strength Training (00:31:03) AG1 (Athletic Greens) (00:32:16) Back-casting: Defining Your “Marginal Decade”  (00:38:31) All-Cause Mortality: Smoking, Strength, VO2 max  (00:44:43) Attia’s Rule of Supplementation, “Centenarian Decathlete” Physical Goals (00:49:24) Importance of Exercise, Brain Health, MET hours  (00:55:23) Nicotine & Cognitive Focus (01:03:12) Menstruation, PMS & Menopause  (01:10:10) Hormone Replacement Therapy, Menopause & Breast Cancer Risk (01:22:06) Estrogen, Progesterone & Testosterone Therapies in Women (01:26:35) Hormone Replacement Therapy in Men, SHBG & Testosterone, Insulin (01:37:23) Clomid, Pituitary, Testosterone & Cholesterol, Anastrozole, HCG (01:47:46) Fadogia Agrestis, Supplements, Rapamycin  (01:52:06) Testosterone Replacement Therapy & Fertility  (01:59:26) Total Testosterone vs. Free Testosterone (02:02:51) Cholesterol & Dietary Cholesterol, Saturated Fat, LDL & HDL, Apolipoprotein B (02:17:42) Apolipoprotein B, Diet, Statins & Other Cholesterol Prescriptions  (02:25:15) Cardiovascular Disease, Age & Disease Risk  (02:28:53) Peptides, Stem Cells, BPC157, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), Injury Rehabilitation  (02:37:40) Metabolomics & Exercise  (02:40:44) GLP-1 & Weight Loss  (02:47:06) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous Supplements, Instagram, Twitter, Neural Network Newsletter, Huberman Lab Clips Title Card Photo Credit: Mike Blabac Disclaimer

Peter Attia, MD On Becoming a Centenarian Decathlete, Metabolic Health & All Things Zone 2

The Rich Roll Podcast

Healthspan extension may pique your interest. But it’s the obsession of today’s guest, a physician and engineer focused on the applied science of longevity to reframe and improve how we live while challenging all we’ve been previously taught about the interaction of health, human performance, and medicine.Meet Peter Attia, MD.Peter’s current practice deals extensively with nutritional interventions, exercise physiology, sleep physiology, emotional and mental health, and pharmacology to increase lifespan (how long you live), while simultaneously improving healthspan (the quality of your life).Today’s conversation, the first in what I hope to be many, focuses on the following specific topics: Longevity. From a holistic perspective, discussing the physical, mental and emotional pillars required to erect the foundation for a long life well-lived, including how and why he is training (as all us of should be) for what he calls “The Centenarian Decathlon”. Metabolic health. What this actually means, how to optimize it, and the role a Continuous Glucose Monitor (or CGM) can play in engaging you with your own metabolic health. Strength, mobility and brain health. Zone 2 training. What it is, how to do it, and why it’s important. Peter is an utterly fascinating human with a clear grasp of science and how to effectively communicate it. I hope you enjoy this exchange as much as I was honored to host it.Watch: YouTube.Read: Show notesToday’s Sponsors:Birch Living: The best, most affordable, organic, and sustainable mattresses on the market with a 100-night risk-free trial.

B.rad Rebroadcast: Peter Attia - Longevity, Diet, and Finding The Drive

The B.rad Podcast

Today’s show highlights a collection of some of the most memorable quotes and lessons from past podcast episodes, starting with the first B.Rad interview ever, Peter Attia, back in August 2018. To this day, that show with Peter remains one of the most-downloaded episodes in the history of this podcast!  You’ll learn how to avoid the most common disease conditions of modern life (heart disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative disease), what Peter’s favorite longevity marker is and why, plenty of tips on how to successfully achieve peak performance, and much more! TIMETAMPS: Dr. Attia talks about his particular medical practice where is not only seeing patients, but is very involved with research. [06:38] When looking at the desire for health and longevity, the biggest impact would be nutrition, exercise and sleep. [09:30] If you take all sugar, refined carbs, processed oils out of your system, you can vacillate on whether you want grass fed or organic or dairy etc. What about “everything in moderation?” [13:05] No one depletes glycogen stores fully.  That’s a misnomer. [17:01] There’s a competition for energy where your muscles are going for energy as well as your brain. [21:09] Peter talks about being in ketosis and then out, eating more vegetables and also intermittent fasting. [22:08] When he was in ketosis for three years, was he looking for application for patients or performance edge? [28:06]Early in the stages of ketosis, when a person is not in fat balance, when they are not weight stable, many people are losing weight. [31:11] Peter is experimenting in 13-week periods, alternating between fasting and nutrition collecting data. [33:48] Make sure that you have the good food you want to eat on hand.  We tend to “eat what’s there” when we are hungry. [36:45] It depends on the person and the psychological strategy of handling these periods of nutrition. [40:28] It is interesting to monitor your emotions. Find out when you are angry and really why? [43:14] Riding your bike on a road is one of the most dangerous things you can do. [46:57] When training for a swim to Catalina, Peter would swim for 10-hour periods. [50:44] Are the people who have these stunning performances especially genetically gifted? [54:58] If you wanted to build a perfect runner, they would have enormous cardiovascular capacity, large quads, glutes and hands. [57:05] The aerodynamics of swimming and running are very different. [59:47] The arrow position on bikes is a compromised position for power output. [01:00:35] Because the density of water is so much greater than the density of air, pretty much everything in swimming goes down to avoiding drag. [01:04:02] Keeping your athletic prowess in an age-appropriate style is important for longevity. The journey of getting better at something is very important.
