What Actually Causes Aging?

Ep. 670
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens. To understand and combat rapid aging, we need to understand what causes aging, chronic diseases, and decline. We call these things the hallmarks of aging—the underlying common pathways or mechanisms of aging. Each hallmark is influenced by the others and affected by various imbalances—too much or too little of certain inputs that can negatively impact the expression and progression of the hallmark. Understanding those interactions and weblike connections is the key to solving the puzzle of aging. In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I dive into the 10 distinct hallmarks of aging and how to address them. What I’ve discovered has blown my mind and changed the way I approach my own health and the health of my patients. I’ve compiled it all into a new book called Young Forever, which comes out on February 21, 2023.

The 3 Biggest Myths About Emotional Eating with Marc David

Ep. 669
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Paleovalley, and Mitopure.Many of us turn to food to cope with feelings, then we beat ourselves up. Personally, I’m guilty of turning to food when I’m exhausted and then feeling bad about not making great choices or eating when I wasn’t truly hungry. But what we don’t realize is that emotional eating is natural and inborn, and it’s not a matter of having too little willpower. The healing process means getting unstuck from negative patterns, reframing our inner dialogue, and acknowledging the different parts of us and what they’re each asking for. Feeling guilty and disempowered isn’t doing us any good. Today I’m excited to sit down with a leading expert in the field of emotional eating and a good friend, Marc David. Marc David, M.A., is the bestselling author of the books, Nourishing Wisdom: A Mind Body Approach to Nutrition and Well-Being and The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, and Weight Loss, a frequent speaker and consultant, and host of the celebrated Psychology of Eating Podcast.
