Today we bring you another podcast from our phi-life series.
Today’s topic: Life Extension
Life extension and anti aging products have become very popular in the last few years, a few of these products include: many types of health foods, supplements, workouts, drugs, and even special therapies.
One of the biggest claims actually comes from intermittent fasting when used as a tool for extending one’s life span, some say that it can add decades to your life.
The question is, can it really add that many years to your life? This is what John Barban and Brad Pilon will answer for you today.
Technically, there are only two ways we can approach the anti aging process. First, the obvious one is to create protocols around your diet, workouts, drugs and therapies and wait for the results. However, the issue with this approach is that you need at least one generation to have valid data and more importantly you can’t tell people what to do for the rest of their lives. The only way this approach can work is to study mice, keep in mind that mice are very different from humans, so not everything that applies to mice will apply to us.
The second approach is to reverse engineer this process and to actually study the people that have lived the longest (over 100 years).
Strangely enough, there is very little they have in common. There is no single workout or diet you can copy and hope to live for as long as them.
There are a few common indicators such as:
- Low Stress Levels
- Activity (both mental and physical)
- Low Bodyfat Percentage
Apart from these three things, each individual lived a different lifestyle. In other words, you can’t guarantee that a low carb diet or powerlifting type of training will help you to live to be a 100.
The even greater question to ask is will lifestyle changes help you live longer or are you at mercy of your genetics and faith?
If so, what is the best approach to take?
This is what John and Brad will attempt to answer for you today in our podcast.

- Is it even possible to study anti aging and have any measurable data?
