In this episode, I’m privileged to have Richard Kirwan, a respected nutritionist and current PhD candidate at John Moores University.
During our conversation, Richard and I discuss:
- Richard’s work as a nutritionist and his focus on helping older individuals — particularly those who have had heart attacks —build muscle through diet and exercise.
- The unique challenges that older people face regarding fitness, the importance of resistance exercise and a higher protein intake for maintaining and building muscle.
- The benefits of Mediterranean-style diets and the importance of making small, sustainable lifestyle changes for overall health.
- The vital role of community support and finding a personal “why” or long-term health-oriented goal as key factors in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and making sustainable changes.
Join us in this enriching discussion about the path to a healthier lifestyle.
