Stress, Fasting, Longevity, Why Diets Don’t Work, A Special Guest & The Metformin Joke

Episode Summary

Ikaria was recently featured on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night Program and a number of interesting topics were raised which we discuss on this episode with Thea Parikos.

  1. Is the Ikarian lifestyle a large reason why they are known as the “island where people forget to die”
  2. Is fasting an appropriate and effective “biohack” for living a great long life
  3. Is the diabetes drug Metformin an even more effective hack for preventing chronic disease and keeping us young?

We discuss all of this as well as officially opening applications to our 2018 Mediterranean Longevity Experience in Ikaria. To apply and to find out more go to www.100notout.com

Spaces are limited, and applications are processed on a first-in first-served basis. Applications will exceed the number of available sports, so even if you aren’t 100% sure if you can make it, we still recommend applying (it’s free to apply).
