Exercise

#163 – Layne Norton, Ph.D.: Building muscle, losing fat, and the importance of resistance training

“I always tell people, I don’t think I would’ve had the success I did in business or social media or academia if I hadn’t done weightlifting because that taught me so much about other things in life.” —Layne Norton

Aging

#118 – Lloyd Klickstein, M.D., Ph.D.: Rapamycin, mTOR inhibition, and the biology of aging

“Our approach is to address serious aging-associated diseases, and if we’re successful, the side effect will be longevity.” — Lloyd Klickstein

Ketosis

#116 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part I of II: Ketogenic diet, exogenous ketones, and exercise

“If you restore insulin sensitivity, you’re better able to access and burn fat.” — Dom D’Agostino

Fasting

#114 – Eileen White, Ph.D.: Autophagy, fasting, and promising new cancer therapies

“I would like to translate what we’ve learned about the role of autophagy in cancer and that involves developing small molecules to inhibit autophagy for cancer therapy.” — Eileen White

Treatments

Metformin and exercise – déjà vu all over again?

Metformin blunts muscle hypertrophy in response to progressive resistance training

Fasting

Can you maintain muscle during fasting?

But in the short-term (at least up to a week for most people), I believe you can maintain muscle mass while fasting, particularly if you’re resistance training.

Aging

Targeting aging

Given that “TOR” is literally “Target of Rapamycin,” it’s no surprise that rapamycin may increase longevity.

Fasting

Wanna know what keeps me up at night?
