Coach’s Corner – The Silver Edge Manifesto

Today we have another edition of the Coaches Corner – so no guest today – it’s just me, and we’ll be back next week with our regular interview format. 

I thought it would be fun to talk about some of our core tenants and beliefs over here at the Silver Edge. So, I compiled a list of 15 ideas that make up our core philosophy. And here is the list in no particular order.

  1. We can be in the best shape of our lives after age 50
  2. Metabolic health trumps weight loss
  3. There are no shortcuts to a strong, lean, healthy body
  4. We need to focus on building functional strength
  5. Cardio sucks for weight loss
  6. The food/pharma machine does not have our best interests at heart.
  7. We are our own best health care advocates
  8. We can be overweight AND undereating
  9. The common advice of “eat less move more” is poor advice for most of us
  10. Diets don’t work
  11. The more restrictive the diet (keto, vegetarian, vegan, etc.) the more difficult to maintain optimal health
  12. There is nothing magical in intermittent fasting
  13. We should eat primarily whole foods
  14. We should eat more quality protein
  15. The common narrative of aging sucks!

I realize that some of these might be controversial or maybe even triggering for some folks, but join me today as I walk through each of these core tenants.
