    Valter Longo PhD: Fasting & Nutrition Protocols for Longevity & Disease Prevention

    Valter Longo PhD: Fasting & Nutrition Protocols for Longevity & Disease Prevention

    When it comes to fasting, how do you parse fact from fiction?
    How do nutrition and lifestyle choices make or break disease?
    And how do we eat to live longer, healthier lives?
    To help us answer these questions, Dr.Valter Longo is back.
    Dr. Longo first graced the show back on RRP #367, where we covered the basics for fasting for longevity. But today we are getting granular on the science of longevity and nutrition, including an analysis of the latest research on fasting and what Dr. Longo calls the fasting-mimicking diet and its connection to healthspan extension & the prevention of disease.
    So today we pick up where we left off four years ago, covering:
    The latest research on fasting, longevity nutrition, and his fasting-mimicking diet;the 5 nutrition pillars of longevity, various fasting strategies, the acute versus chronic effects of food on metabolism, optimal protein intake based on age, high fat versus low-fat diets, and how to think about and contextualize continuous glucose monitoring;the science around rapamycin, metformin and sirtuins;and many other topics.
    Today’s episode is also viewable on YouTube:

    Camille Herron: Crushing World Records, Narrowing The Gender Gap, And The Power of Happiness

    Camille Herron: Crushing World Records, Narrowing The Gender Gap, And The Power of Happiness

    She collects world records with wild abandon. With each race, she narrows the gender gap, rewriting the rulebook on human capability with a broad smile and arms outstretched.
    Meet force of nature Camille Herron.
    Alongside 21 marathon victories, Camille won the Comrades Marathon in 2017, becoming the first athlete to win World Championship titles in the 50K, 100K and clocking the most miles in 24 hours (167.8 to be specific) of any woman in history. Just after turning 40, earlier this year Camille took home a big win at the Jackpot 100, beating all the men and besting her own 100-mile Road World Record.
    In addition, Camille is the youngest woman to reach 100,000-lifetime running miles and she holds my favorite world record—fastest marathon in a superhero costume—running 2:48 dressed head to toe as Spiderwoman. Today she shares her unique story, in her own unique way.
    How can a woman who commits herself to such hellish feats of physical performance remain so joyous?
    Today we dissect it all: Camille’s relentless positivity, her unique backstory, her unique, quality over quantity training style, how she thinks about closing the gender gap in ultra running, the importance of strength training, how blood work has impacted her focus on nutrition, the difference between trail running and road running, her near term goals and future ambitions. We also talk about how she manages being married to her coach Conor Holt, how running can be self-transcendent, and many other interesting topics.

Dtsanger ,

Great listen!

Been listening for a few years now, what I find enjoyable, besides the content and subject matter, is his manner of speaking and questioning. His tone and speaking pace is very relaxing and easy to listen to. I’m from east coast, used to doing everything fast, including talking. Rich has an steady pace, even tone and never oversteps interviews with guests, allowing a very easy conversation. Really easy to listen to and engage in what they’re actually talking about, even on subjects I have no prior knowledge about. I think I fit into the demographic (former college swimmer that just turned 51) so a lot of these episodes really hit me but I think they’re great for anyone. Just solid content presented in a very pleasurable manner. Thanks Rich

So Professional and Informative!

I’m new to the podcast. I just finished the podcast Microbiome with Dr. Will B. I feel so informed of the new research happening in the health, fitness, and in general the medical community. This is grounding breaking science 🧪 🧫 🧬 and I’m excited to catch up on all of these podcasts! Thank you Rich and Team for such a great show.👏🏾👍🏾✊🏾
