Everyone has an opinion about how to live a longer and healthier life.

Some swear by specific diets, others point to genetics or sheer luck.

From a scientific perspective, there's one important factor for longevity: #CardiovascularTraining.
If you want to live a long and healthy life, there's no substitute for regular cardiovascular training.

Even just a few minutes of #cardio exercise per day could help you live almost 7 years longer than non-active people.
Best of all, there are a lot of options.Aim for at least 5 days a week and 30 minutes per day:

⛹️Team sports
🏃 Jogging or running
🏋️ Resistance training
🚴 Interval training
🏊 Swimming
Keep in mind that exercise isn't a magical way to increase your lifespan.Instead, you should view cardiovascular training as a quality of life enhancement that keeps your body, mind, and metabolic health in peak condition as you age.

I was attacked by an OB/GYN today for pointing out the financial incentives in health care.

Let's look at C-Section rates.

US: 31%
Canada: 29%
Northern Europe: 26%

What's the $ impact for our hospitals as a result of that 5% higher C-Section rate here? Image
I'm not saying OB/GYNs are responsible for increased C-Section rates in the US.

I'm saying that our system rewards interventions and disincentivizes preventative care.

Most babies are born in hospitals.

Most moms are exposed to this incentive structure.
To pretend that zero incentive structure exists in our medical system is naive.

To attack those few of us medical professionals who are willing to point it out is obscene.

We cannot afford to temporize. We have an obligation to inform the public of the current state of knowledge and to assist the public in making the correct food choices. To do less is to avoid our responsibility."

"The problems can never be solved merely by more and more medical care."

Americans are facing a mental health crisis. Nearly one in five people suffer from a diagnosis every year.

Researchers are turning to possible correlations between the mind and body—including #metabolichealth.
Metabolic health has a significant effect on both #addiction and mental health.

Not only does being metabolically healthy reduce the risk of developing addictions, but evidence suggests it can improve mental health markers as well.
Many mental health disorders are correlated to the altered metabolism of glucose. Switching to a #ketogenic diet may be helpful.

Improved metabolic health also has clinical evidence for prevention, as schizophrenia and bipolar disorders may increase metabolic health factors.

So you’re interested in #metabolic health and can see the benefits of making a change, but you're not sure where to begin your journey.

I suggest a two-step approach: researching for general awareness, then seeking certified coaching.
2/ The most basic definition of #metabolichealth is the creation and management of energy. But only 12% of Americans fall into that category. 88% are metabolically unhealthy.

Planning and direction are critical to future success, which is where
3/ Metabolic coaches work in an industry related to #healthcare, and have spent years refining their approach to wellness.

Since coaching can be accomplished virtually, it's efficient and convenient for those who are unable to travel or don't have time to visit in-person.

Poor metabolic health has serious consequences on the heart. It may increase existing risks for stroke, increase pressure in veins and arteries, and prevent the body from managing energy effectively.
This is accomplished by:

•Controlling blood pressure, which may put unnecessary strain on the vessels and arteries.
•Managing weight, which may contribute to heart disease and its recurring factors.
•Reducing risks for diabetes, stroke, and heart attack.
Above all, metabolic health is key to promoting lifelong disease prevention. Restoring a healthy balance is key for limiting risk factors and putting you at the controls of your personal wellness.
