My girl Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is back for another episode of “What’s the Juice?”! Dr. Lyon has been my personal doctor for 7 years now and has truly changed my life. She is a well-respected functional medicine practitioner and the founder of the Institute for Muscle-Centric Medicine®, specializing in thyroid health, lean body mass support, and longevity. In this episode, we build off of our conversation from last year about the importance of skeletal muscle and its immediate positive impact on your health. We get into the principles and key takeaways of her new book, “Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well” which is SO motivating and easy to understand. You’ll leave this conversation feeling ready to take action and not afraid to work hard for your health goals. 

Links from the ep: 

Here’s the juice:

  • Why you’re only going to get as healthy as your self-worth allows you to be

  • How to navigate a present bias and why you need to focus on future goals over immediate results

  • Why she sees anxiety as a distraction

  • The concept of having “guard rails” – how getting the consequence right really keeps you from repeating that action again

  • How the most successful people in the world are deeply aware of their weaknesses 

  • Asking yourself “what are the standards for my life?” vs abiding by a strict diet. What actions and personality traits are required in order to meet my goals?

  • The importance of raising the wellness bar for those around you 

  • Food addiction and how protein can help stop the food noise and curb emotional eating 

  • As we evolve our coping mechanisms need to evolve as well

  • Highlighting your patterns as characters by naming them and giving them a voice

  • Why low skeletal muscle and excess body fat can lead to fertility issues in both men and women 

  • Why we actually THRIVE during challenges, contrary to what we may believe
