A few months ago, I shared this image of my two-year health transformation on Instagam which got a lot of our community talking. In the image on the left, I had only recently turned 40, and I was in the worst shape of my life.
My eyesight was deteriorating, my waistline was expanding, a double chin was appearing and worst of all, I was starting to lose my hair. I had failed all my health goals, and instead I was turning into that stereotypical "middle aged" man. I wanted to stop this, as I wanted to be physically able to play with my great grandkids and have the energy to run my business even in my 70s. To do this, I needed to figure out a way to slow down, or even reverse ageing.
As I begin researching and diving deep into the science of longevity, there was always one name that kept popping up as the leading authority in this field - Ben Greenfield, the man who successfully reversed his biological ago by 17 years.
How did he do it? Surprisingly, the practices he used to achieve this were not complex and did not require expensive equipment (often not needing any equipment at all). They also did not take a lot of time to do. In other words, these were health strategies anyone could do — no matter how old you are today or your current circumstances — to reap incredible rewards in both the length of your life, but also the quality of your life.
Ever since I started applying the ideas I learned from Ben, the difference it has made to my health and fitness has been profound (see the second image on the right). Today, I’m fitter, stronger, slimmer, more muscular, and more energetic than I ever was in my early thirties — And I don’t expect that will change for years, or even decades to come.
