Dr. Scott’s “Super-Ager” SECRETS
The way I figure it, you have two choices as you age:
You can either be the type of senior who goes out dancing… cooks their own meals… drives… and volunteers.
Or you can be the “old person” who can barely walk to the mailbox… eats whatever is convenient… and almost never leaves out of the house.
I present this like it’s a choice… BECAUSE IT IS!
You can be what scientist call a “super-ager” – someone over the age of 90 who’s healthy and active – or you can be a lump of clay.
The choice is yours.
But I’ll show you EXACTLY how to get on the super-ager track today!
Super-agers are defined as people who made it to old age with almost no disease AND who are living much like they did in their 50s and 60s.
And while you think these people may have won the genetic lottery, that’s simply NOT TRUE.
Experts have found your genes only account for about 20 to 30 percent of our longevity.
That means what you and I do every day has much more to do with our health as we age than how long our parents lived.
Here is what the super-agers have in common:
- Diet: Most super agers have made plants the main part of their diet. If you read this newsletter at all, you know I think fats and protein are important to a diet. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also think vegetables are important as well. Try to fill your plate with as many vegetables as you can and balance those with a good protein source.
- Exercise: Super agers take every opportunity for natural movement. They tend to be walkers or gardeners (or even herders). They aren’t crazy athletes running millions of miles a week, they simply use their body as often as they can to accomplish daily.
- Sense of Purpose: Super agers are people who have a goal and something they want to accomplish. They tend to love reading and learning.
- Community: Many people who are super agers belong to some sort of community. Most of them tend to be in faith-based communities, but any group of people who can support and help guide them seems to help increase their longevity.
- Nap: Super agers find a way to take a nap every day. If they can’t nap, they find some other way to downshift or be calm and quiet during the day.
- Eating: Super agers tend to not eat too much, and they tend to stop eating early in the day. A ton of research supports the idea of compressing you’re eating time into a small amount as possible – this means only eating for around 8 hours every day.
Being a super-ager is not that hard. Focus on the good things in life: good food, friend, community (and of course, naps).

Our healthcare system has a fatal flaw. It’s set up to react to illness, NOT prevent it. So, doctors are stuck in a losing game of whack-a-mole.
