It’s not sexy but it’s real talk and it’s important. No one thinks about this in their 20’s and 30’s, or even 40’s unless they have family history.
But if we only talk about body composition and strength gains and #liftingheavyshit and I don’t address long term health then I’ve failed as a “coach” and someone who wants to encourage you to create life-long healthy habits.
From the British Journal of Sports medicine…
✅Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions.
✅A simple way to combat insulin resistance (chronically high levels of serum insulin) and inflammation:
✅Compared with physically inactive individuals, those who walk briskly at or above 150 min/week can increase life expectancy by 3.4–4.5 years independent of body weight.
✅Regular brisk walking may also be more effective than running in preventing coronary disease. And just 30 min of moderate activity a day more than three times/week significantly improves insulin sensitivity and helps reverse insulin resistance (ie, lowers the chronically elevated levels of insulin that are associated with obesity) within months in sedentary middle-aged adults.
✅This occurs independent of weight loss and suggests even a little activity goes a long way.
✅Another risk factor for Coronary heart disease is environmental stress. Childhood trauma can lead to an average decrease in life expectancy of 20 years.
✅Chronic stress increases glucocorticoid receptor resistance, which results in failure to down regulate the inflammatory response.
✅Combining a complete lifestyle approach of a healthful diet, regular movement and stress reduction will improve quality of life, reduce cardiovascular and all-cause mortality.
✅It is time to shift the public health message in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease away from measuring serum lipids and reducing dietary saturated fat.
✅Coronary artery disease is a chronic inflammatory disease and it can be reduced effectively by walking 22 min a day and eating real food. There is no business model or market to help spread this simple yet powerful intervention.
