The midlife muscle crisis, with Dr Gabrielle Lyon

Do you weight train? Functional medicine practitioner Dr Gabrielle Lyon joins Liz on this podcast to share why your health and longevity may be determined by having too little muscle rather than too much fat.

Gabrielle and Liz discuss how skeletal muscle mass can impact your immune system, brain cells, and hormones, plus they cover the benefits of a high protein diet and how else to protect our muscles as we age.

The episode also dives into the relationship between body composition, waist circumference, and brain volume. And Gabrielle also talks through why she believes resistance training should be prescribed by doctors to patients.
