Show #356 – Mikki Williden PhD: Nutrition & Exercise As We Age and How To Tweak Things Accordingly


About this show:

Mikki Williden, Ph.D. joins us to discuss the personalisation piece, regarding healthy ageing, metabolism, exercise choices, recovery from exercise, protein on different diets, and more. If any of the following is something you want a calm, science-backed voice on, this is a must-listen:

  • Health in kids – surprising research and simple fixes as we look at how metabolic issues can begin early in life
  • Only 3% of people are doing of the 5 things considered to be essential for health – how do you fare? 
  • Exercise from your 40s and onwards – do I have to ‘give up’ my favourite cardio for weights now? 
  • Recovery after exercise and how ‘what’ you do after exercise needs to change as you get older, to preserve muscle mass – one doctor tells you ketones, the next health professional tells you carbs – what is the science telling us and can it be different depending on the person/age?
  • Protein requirements for all types of eaters and how to ‘get it in’ when you’re doing intermittent fasting/narrower eating windows. 
  • How we can mitigate issues and bounce back from ‘go with the flow moments’ in life as we get older and are less carbohydrate sensitive (ie less tolerant to them)

A great, clear explainer of all of the above, Mikki is a calm and encouraging voice in an often stressful “You’re not doing it right!” health world.
