Most people say they would feel content to live anywhere from 80-120 years of age. However, it’s living healthy and disease-free that most people desire rather than number of years. Diet and exercise have shown to play a small part in slowing down ageing, but it’s what this does to the body that makes all the difference; and now, science is starting to find new ways.
David Sinclair is an Australian biologist and professor of genetics. He is famous for his research on ageing and longevity, and author of “Lifespan: Why We Age — and Why We Don’t Have To”. He is one of the professionals who looks like a product of his research. He is about 50 years old but looks about 25. He must practice what he preaches.
If you haven’t already heard; my plan is to live to 200, so it’s know wonder I was put onto this guy. Currently, the average lifespan of an Australian is 82.5 years. It’s said that the first person to live to 150 is alive today. I truly believe, that with the advancements we’ve seen in science and technology to-date, particularly in the field of ageing, by the time I reach this age it will be possible to live to 200, and to do so disease-free with good quality of life.

We all have a chronological age — the number of years you’ve been on the planet. But we also have an epigenetic age, also known as a biological age — a measure of how quickly the cells in our body are deteriorating compared to the general population. In a weird and crazy way this may be a better age to celebrate, or at least acknowledge when we blow out the candles on our cake, because our epigenetic age is a better predictor of lifespan.
Be a little bit hungry every day.
Keep sugar, bread and pasta intake low.
Eat primarily a plant-based diet.
Avoid microwave plastic, excessive UV exposure, X-rays and CT scans.
Take a lot of steps each day.
Be a little bit puffed every few days (run up stairs everyday).
Increase muscle mass.
Get cold every day.
Stay cool at night.
Supplement with highly pure molecules.
Get vitamin D and K2 daily.
Get a daily dose of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), resveratrol and metformin.
We usually consider chronological age as our main measure of age; however, epigenetic (biological) age is a better measure of age as it takes into account how quickly the cells in your body are deteriorating. This is a better predictor of lifespan and the all important quality of life.
