In this video, we’re going to talk about why some people have a had diet and still live a long life.

I recently had a commenter say, “My grandfather ate bread and sugar and drank alcohol and lived to be 90. How do you explain that?” This is an interesting topic that I’d like to cover in this video.

We’re all born with different genes. Some people have highly robust genes that can withstand much more than others.

Other people develop metabolic issues early in life and are not able to consume unhealthy foods without them having a tremendously negative effect on their health.

For me, it was at 28 years old that I began to feel the effects of unhealthy eating. From that point forward, I had to eat healthy to feel healthy.

Epigenetics also play an important role in how healthy your body is. Your health reserve and attitude are other pieces of the health and longevity puzzle.

In summary, yes, it is possible to eat unhealthily and live a long life. However, very few people are able to do this without experiencing serious health consequences.

Whether or not you have robust genes, your health can benefit from a healthy keto diet and intermittent fasting.
