#189: Why Muscle is the Secret Key to Longevity with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon
Show Notes

So many of us are struggling with our weight or just struggling to step into the next phase of life with vitality. On today’s episode, my guest is going to flip the idea of weight and health on its head and focus on the importance of skeletal muscle and how she believes that muscle is key to longevity. Muscle is an endocrine organ and it has so much to do with blood sugar regulation, energy production, and hormone regulation. So, let’s dive into today’s conversation with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon!

You’ll hear more about:

  • How the physical body determines how the rest of the body functions 
  • The one thing most people have in common when it comes their bodies (hint: it might just surprise you!)
  • Three big keys to why muscle is so important 
  • Why the "recommended" daily amounts for vitamins and minerals are NOT nearly enough (and how much you should be striving to get!)
  • The importance of the first and last meals of the day
  • And so much more!
