Outlive Quotes With Page Numbers. Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity by Peter Attia, #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER OVER ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD • A groundbreaking manifesto on living better and longer that challenges the conventional medical thinking on aging and reveals a new approach to preventing chronic disease and extending long-term health, from a visionary physician and leading longevity expert.

the Book focuses on how humans can live longer and live longer for better. By drawing on a wide body of science, anecdotes, and personal stories, Attia communicates complex biological processes to a general audience. The crux of Attia’s argument is that we need to maximize both chronological lifespan (age) and healthspan (quality of life), which represent the two key components of longevity. 

Attia believes that modern medicine (Medicine 2.0) is ill-equipped to help us achieve our longevity objectives. Instead, he argues that people need to take control of all aspects of their health to craft a strategy that works for them based on science. He believes only a new way of thinking about medicine—Medicine 3.0—can help people do this.

  • “One macronutrient, in particular, demands more of our attention than most people realize: not carbs, not fat, but protein becomes critically important as we age.”

  • “Unfortunately, in today’s unhealthy society, “normal” or “average” is not the same as “optimal.”
  • “How much protein do we actually need? It varies from person to person. In my patients I typically set 1.6 g/kg/day as the minimum, which is twice the RDA.”
  • “But if you really want to raise your VO2 max, you need to train this zone more specifically. Typically, for patients who are new to exercising, we introduce VO2 max training after about five or six months of steady zone 2 work.”
  • “found that grip strength, an excellent proxy for overall strength, was strongly and inversely associated with the incidence of dementia (see figure 8). People in the lowest quartile of grip strength (i.e., the weakest) had a 72 percent higher incidence of dementia, compared to those in the top quartile.”
  • “In July of 2009, a study published in Science found that rhesus monkeys that had been fed a reduced-calorie diet for more than two decades had lived markedly longer than those who were allowed to eat freely.”

  • “Twice a week, I spend an hour doing dedicated stability training, based on the principles of DNS, PRI, and other practices, with ten to fifteen minutes per day on the other days.”

  • “Of course, exercise is not just one thing, so I break it down into its components of aerobic efficiency, maximum aerobic output (VO2 max), strength, and stability, all of which we’ll discuss in more detail.”
  • “It’s similar to what has happened with weight. In the late 1970s, the average American adult male weighed 173 pounds. Now the average American man tips the scale at nearly 200 pounds.”
