Mark Hyman calls Muscle is the Currency of Longevity and I so agree.

Why? The natural loss of muscle mass as we age is linked to what I call lifestyle diseases like, Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease, Stroke, High Blood Pressure, Insulin Resistance. 

To make gains in the muscle mass department we need to eat quality protein. Now, eating a plant based diet is also a huge help in ageing strong, and managing the needed protein in a plant based diet, can be challenging for some. 

Either way if you are plant based eater or an animal protein eater,(and I have no judgement either way), protein provides us the building blocks to grow and maintain new muscle tissue. The building blocks also play a part in messenger hormones like, prolactin (PRL), growth hormone (GH), and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-I), as well as significant influences on immunity by thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). 

So pretty dam important right, and yet most people don’t eat enough quality protein. Aim to get 20-40 grams of protein at each meal or snack four to six times per day. (You might need a little more or less protein each day depending on your goals, body size, and other factors like physical activity).

I hear clients say hey, I’m having heaps of protein, I eat a 100+gram chicken breast as day. What they don’t realise is that a 100gram chicken breast only has about 30grams of protein. So even meat eaters can be running short in the protein dept. 

I am 61 years young, strong, fit and healthy.I was up and surfing at sunrise this morning, and had a rippa session too. I am not on any medications and plan to never be. I never did the menopause drama or anything. We truly don’t have to break down as we age. I have been living to age strong for decades, since I started studying as a naturopath. 

No matter your age today, I promise its time to start looking at how you want to be feeling and living in your later years.
