This week we welcome Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders to the show. Annabel and Susan have compiled almost 100 short cuts to health in mid and later life, including: how, when and what to eat; the supplements worth taking; when, where and how to exercise; the most useful medical tests; how to avoid health-threatening chemicals; the best methods for keeping the brain sharp; and how to sleep better.
The Age-Well Project is an essential handbook for making the second half of your life happy, healthy and disease-free.
Questions we ask in this episode:
This week, I'm excited to welcome Annabelle Streets and Susan Saunders, who are founders of the Age Well Project. Between them, both Annabelle and Susan witnessed family members succumb to heart disease, cancer, dementia and diabetes and wanted to do everything they could do to reduce their risk of suffering the same fate. So, for the last five years, they've immersed themselves in the latest medical studies, radically overhauled their own lives and documented their findings via a blog. And now a book. In this episode we discussed the health misconceptions that mainstream media lead us to believe and learn about the four cornerstones of healthy aging that holds the key to truly optimizing our own health. Over to Annabelle and Susan. Hey guys, this is Stu from one 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Annabelle streets and Susan Saunders to the podcast. Ladies, good morning. How are you?
01:41 Really good.
01:41 Good morning Stewart.
01:43 Good morning from London.
01:44 All the way from London way. Hopefully you've got a nice day. We are just coming to an end over here in Australia. So, but I can tell you that Friday's been a good day, so don't despair. It's all good.
01:54 Good, good. We are hoping for a good Friday ahead of us.
01:59 Yeah, this is a good start to the day.
01:59 So, first up, thank you so much for joining me today. I've got loads and loads of questions that I want to fire at you as well. But for all of those people, our listeners, that are not familiar with you guys, your work, books, things like that, I just wondered if you could share a little bit about yourselves please.
02:21 Yes. Well we, we met about 10 years ago outside the school where we had two daughters and we started talking and we discovered fairly early on that we both had very similar backgrounds in terms of the families that we came from and the, the diseases that we believed were in our genes. And a, and we sort of cemented our early friendship over conversations about subjects like dementia and Alzheimer's and all those sorts of things. And then later on we decided to start blogging. We were both working, we had young children, we were very, very busy and we were finding it quite hard to adopt sort of healthy lifestyle practices into our own lives because we were, we're juggling so many, so many balls.
