What if YOU could unlock the secrets of the longest-lived people on the planet?

Well, I’ve got great news: You can.

On this episode I do a deep dive on Blue Zones – the 5 geographic regions that are home to some of the world’s longest-living people – and let you in on some secrets that could help YOU live the longest, healthiest life possible. 

And as the only nutrition expert to spend most of their career living in a blue zone, I can tell you that these secrets are likely NOT what you’re expecting 

I bust some of the biggest blue zone myths, reveal my #1 longevity-booster when it comes to diet, and share how YOU can set yourself up to live a long, healthy life – no matter your location. 

I’ll also answer some of YOUR most pressing questions on the matter – straight from my instagram!

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • Surprising foods that may be shortening your lifespan – and how to help offset the damage (10:06)
  • Why Italians avoid THESE 2 foods (they’re likely in your pantry) – and how you can ditch them for good (11:09)
  • The common denominator in ALL blue zones – and how it can help YOU live a healthier, longer life (12:46)
  • What most people get wrong about this “bad-for-you” food – and why it’s so popular in many of the blue zones (16:20)
  • Why I consider myself a “veg-aquarian” – and the dietary changes you can make to reap serious health benefits (19:30)
  • My must-know longevity secret and how it doubles as a tool for weight-loss (hint: it has nothing to do with diet) (22:50)
  • The IDEAL way to fast for maximum benefits – and what to do when you get hungry) (28:39)
  • How people in the blue zones avoid THIS health-wrecker – and how you can too  (35:00)
  • How I have changed my lifestyle since living in a blue zone (and easy changes you can make TODAY) (37:28)
