Dr. Scott’s EASY Muscle Program (Seniors ONLY)
If you never step foot in a gym, I don’t blame you.
You’ve got 50 different pairs of eyes on you… and there are always a couple of meatheads lifting weights in front of the mirror.
Who ARE those guys?
But here’s a dose of truth… you can’t just ignore your muscles.
Keeping good muscle mass as you age is literally a matter of life and death.
And I’m going to show you how building muscles is WAY easier than you ever thought possible.
I have no problem running, walking, or biking, but I hate lifting weights.
Maybe you’re the same?
But just because I hate something doesn’t mean I don’t do it.
A study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, by researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, found muscle building increased health-span better than almost anything they found.
Building muscle is important because:
- Muscles keep you moving throughout your life and exercise is good for everyone.
- Good muscle tone helps keep joints and bones healthy.
- Low muscle tone is a common feature in many chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, fragile bones, and even stress.
- Muscles play a strong role in your metabolism–if you want to lose or maintain a healthy weight, good muscle tone is a key.
- More muscle increases insulin sensitivity which helps to keep your blood sugar low.
- The amount of muscle you have determines how well you might survive a long-term illness.
But how do you build muscle?
The study looked at 49 high-quality past experiments (for a total of 1,863 people) to discover what worked for muscle-building.
What they found was interesting: lifting weights is not enough and just eating protein didn’t work.
You need both: protein and weight lifting.
The study found that almost any protein will work (but other studies suggest that leucine, an amino acid, is the main driver of lean muscle growth).
Building muscles requires two things: the first is that you move your body around a bit. Yes, this means you need to do some exercise. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, just get out and move your body. The second is the right nutrition.
Foods high in leucine include beef, chicken, pork, nuts, and seafood.

You have five primary senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. (The sixth one doesn’t count. Only your Aunt Mable claims that one.)
