"I get this question all the time, and the best answer is often a
surprising one. The best diet is the one you can maintain long term. I’d add a
few additions to this. Mainly, the diet should include nutrient density at
least 80% of the time. This means plenty of color derived from fruits and
vegetables, lean sources of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. The
macronutrient composition is truly dependent after these factors by the health
and goals of the individual. "

"You don’t need to have the latest tech to be healthy. The world's
healthiest populations (blue zones, for example) are not using technology to
live longer – or better. If technology is something you think will help enhance
your adherence to healthy living, the personalized approach led by your
healthcare provider may be a good option. This can include CGM’s. Ketone
monitors, dexa scans, step counters, or devices to track sleep and stress."

"This depends on the patient's health, medications, etc. but the general
recommendations from the CDC, AHA and WHO are between 1500-2300mg/day."

"Studies have found that walking helps manage weight, blood sugar, heart
health, and brain health. It’s also considered a great way to get physical
activity that only requires walking shoes. Walking has also been associated
with better mental health. Finally, studies have shown that walking is a major component
of longevity."

"Colostrum has not been studied enough to warrant an
educated option on whether it would be useful for adults from a bovine source
(the main source seen in supplements). To be clear, we are discussing a
supplemental form that is tending right now, NOT the colostrum that a mother
provides to her infant shortly after birth."

"This is dependent on the woman’s health, chronic disease status,
medications, health goals, and physical activity routine. Creatine may help
maintain and grow muscle mass. Reductions in muscle mass that occur as a woman
ages may often result in weight gain and, consequently, an increase in chronic
health risks. The dosage, however, will be dependent on many factors."
