An outstanding interview and discussion across several dimensions - especially the psychological dimension. I voluntarily put myself through 4 years of psychotherapy in the 1970's (mid 20's) merely because I learned from some of my consultant clients (psychologists) that the state of Texas required by law that for a PhD Psychologist to practice clinical psychology, one had to have gone through the psychotherapy experience to better understand themselves and not allow their problems get confused with their patients. And that person did not control the length of that therapy. So what started as a trial of 3 or 4 sessions to see what this mysterious (seemly Hitchcock -ian") "PSYCHO-therapy" was, ended up as weekly individual and group sessions each week for 4 years. An amazing journey. So I resonate with the 2nd half, his reliance on counselors and his humility in his admission of his truth (insecurity). As the renowned Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Han would say (something like): From mindfulness and being true to oneself, comes understanding not only of oneself but also of others and from true understanding comes appreciation, compassion and thus love itself. I have a new understanding of Peter Attia as a result of watching this video. He is not only, as he says late in the video, a person driven by emotional attachment, rage and obsession, he also can face his truth and maybe he got to that point for the wrong reason, as he implied, (i.e obsesssion, insecurity, etc.) but he got there. He is human. Bravo! And thanks for the tip on David Foster Wallace's - This is Water.

The problem is that my wife is a coffee roaster and I cannot go without coffee. Its problematic but I just restrict everything but coffee.

The fitness world tends to glorify "overkill fitness", like squatting twice your body weight or running a marathon, but Peter Attia points out that most of us should prioritize "functional" tasks, like carrying heavy luggage up stairs or sprinting short distances. Variety is the key, to cover the huge range of physical demands. Skill deficits tend to cause more injuries than a lack of brute strength.

The commenter has swelled under eyes. I wonder why, maybe too much salt, too much nitrites/nitrates, too much starch (?),…. all in combination possibly, - those are factors I've noticed can be causative of puffiness under the eyes. I've got relatively deep-set undereyes with darkness, but, I've had that since my teens, though I think it was caused by my vegan-fruitarian-raw phase in my late teens to early 20's, which left 'the mark' on me as that, variable per person. Btw, prudent omnivorism for the win, from my experiences since 1984, age 16, to now age 50.

Body integrity. Your body reveals as to what's good for you, including how much, if any, and with what if so,… and what's not good for you. Body integrity is more key than 'health'. The integrity of all your tissues, fluids, and mind,…. it's in your control, given adequate choices, which typically we do have at least in the modern western world of abundance.

Fit, testosterone-charged, bulletproof men who take seriously projecting an alpha-male image in their physical prime are not necessarily the best-placed to imagine the optimal regime for health, fitness and wellbeing for older men - let alone women. We need to hear more from people like Markus Antonius (helpfully commenting here below) - BUT also bearing in mind that he may be exercising for his past self rather than his future self and that he may be forced to modify his routine because of unexpected constraints impinging suddenly from out of left field. People who criticise Markus Antonius should have the credibility of their opinions discounted for every year they are below his age. Bro science is no match for lived experience.

His total lack of personality gets me questioning how much I care about him living forever. If I had to hang out with him for half an hour I'd take up smoking and drugs just to shorten my life as much as possible...

This guys idea is a fail as muscle strength drops because theres simply not enough muscle growing hormone output anymore after one reaches a certain age - although the idea that one can extend health through muscle strenght exercise is solid, but yeah, may be pretty hard after 80...

Any who have believed in Jesus Christ and surrendered their lives to them, are, already, immortal in Christ, for their sins have been forgiven, and "they shall not perish, but have eternal life," - John 16:33 Quality of life while we're in our mortal body is a small portion of our eternal lives in Christ, for we are not of this world, though live in it. Good sound advice here, therefore, from a balanced health perspective. But no. We're not going to live in these bodies, forever; but will be given new bodies. My sport? My invention - the arrow saber. I'm an arrow saberist: usvid.net/video/video-ETJgwjUu-KE.html But, regardless what we do - we should "do everything, heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto man," - Colossians 3:23 - living the truth as from Jesus Christ, and NOT "being like water," like Bruce Lee said. We're not going to see "perfection" on this side of eternal life. We can only cling to he who was perfect - and is, forevermore, Jesus Christ.

Hmmm he doesn't sound like the obnoxious guy who interviewed Dr. Dave Feldman. I was so disappointed at him that I was never going to look at his face again. I even unsubscribed from his site. Well....let me see what he has to say....and how he conducts himself. I am of the believe that everyone should be a little disciplined and courteous toward a guest. Anger or frustration doesn't leave much room for intelligence. Mr. Feldman handled it remarkably.

It surprises me that you make such a big deal out of Peter having insecurities. I would think that it'd be impossible for anyone not to feel insecurity on some level, on account of the fact that the more we specialise in one area, the less we know about all other areas, as there's only 24 hours in a day and we have to sleep. and most people only specialise in something because it fascinates them.

For people who want to know more about exercising for health and longevity, I dearly recommend reading stuff from Joel Seedman and John Rusin.
Dan Riverso
Dan Riverso Month ago
This guy is reading from the same script as everyone else nowadays. Problem is, it's dead wrong. The Blue Zones of the world do not eat Keto diets and their daily activity is mostly walking and tending to gardens/fields, not squatting some insane amount of weight. He is right about sleep and, honestly, I'm on the fence about fasting. The one thing he didn't mention is that social connections (and I'm talking real connections, not over social media) also lead to a long life. So sleep, breathe, eat mostly plants, get moderate impact exercise and have great relationships and you'll increase your chances of living a great life at 100.
Achak Hakan
Achak Hakan Month ago
@Dan Riverso Yes, he has a smooth voice but is completely wrong about everything; he actually looks unhealthy to me. I suspect Keith Richards will live a longer, healthier life than this goof. Studies have shown that longevity is highly correlated with having fond memories of childhood, and having a low-stress lifestyle. Eating right and staying active are also helpful, but spending 10-12 hours a week in the gym is asinine and counter-productive. I have many healthy relatives in their 90's who, as far I know, have never exercised at all.

Don't overload the joints. I've been saying since I was a teenager. That's why I bike, not run. When I do run, it's really sprinting, rarely, on a field. I've always challenged runners injuries. What's the point of a health promoting activity if it causes injuries? Maybe that's why they call it "pounding the pavement."
