Longevity is at the top of everyone’s mind these days, and we can’t talk about longevity without mentioning movement, mobility, and safeguarding against falls and fractures. What lies at the heart of these endeavors? Our capacity to build and sustain lean muscle.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon to discuss why building and maintaining skeletal muscle is critical for preserving our healthspan, life span, and metabolic health. In this episode, Dr. Lyon explains the power of a muscle-centric approach to weight loss and shifting body composition.
She shares how prioritizing building muscle has helped countless patients reclaim their health and speaks on her strategy for consuming enough dietary protein, strength training, and meal planning and how to incorporate them into your life in a sustainable fashion.
Dr. Lyon is a Washington University fellowship-trained physician in nutritional science and geriatrics and is board-certified in family medicine. She is the founder of the Institute for Muscle-Centric Medicine and has a private practice that services leaders, innovators, mavericks, and executives in a number of fields.
In addition, Dr. Lyon also works closely with special-operations military personnel. Her goal is to change the paradigm of medicine from obesity-focused to muscle-centric and the way we think about health and medicine with high scientific integrity. Her new book, Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well, is set to be released on October 17, 2023.
