LLM Program Overview
Longevity Lifestyle Matters
Longevity Lifestyle Matters is a brain-based 12-week program—the first of its kind. It is designed to help individuals pursue gradual and permanent lifestyle changes to prevent what is preventable, reduce the risk for what is not preventable, and manage more effectively what was not—or could not be—prevented.
You can follow the program at home by yourself or with friends. You can look for a program to attend, one night a week for 12 weeks, for 90 minutes each week.
It also offers the opportunity for interested individuals to join a core of LLM Certified Facilitators locally, nationally, and internationally to present and promote the Longevity Lifestyle Matters Program.
The Longevity Lifestyle Matters program is designed to assist people in learning how better to use their most powerful resource tool—their brain—in achieving an optimum and perpetual state of high-level healthiness. It is designed to help people learn how to stay healthier and younger for longer, through motivational education, practical application, and encouragement strategies.
Since each brain is different, each implements the 14 components in a way that will work for the rest of the person’s life—in balance, since the brain works best in balance—with the view to reducing one’s risks for obesity, diabetes type 2, cancer, and heart disease—conditions often linked with unhealthy lifestyle management choices, either currently or in past generations.
Brain-based reasons exist for the information that is included in the program. Each component links back to the brain in some way—because everything starts in the brain. Information about genetics (worth an estimated 30 percent of how well and how you long you live) but it emphasizes epigenetics (worth an estimated 70 percent of your health and longevity). Lifestyle is part of epigenetics.
The simple but highly effective approach is not about dieting or a short-term fix—within the space of about 3 years most people gain back all they lost and more, often with a higher fat-to-muscle ratio. Neither is it about deprivation, which can lead to bingeing. Nor is it about a negative mindset, as that can lead to failure. And it is not about over-exercising, compulsively counting calories, prolonged fasting, embracing any other fad, or existing on unpalatable food—all of which can lead to discouragement and depression.
Rather, it embraces the exponential power of science in creating synergy between the brain and body, unlocking vast potentials for positive health and longevity. Slow and steady wins.
