Doug green. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. We’re back here in the studio shooting another episode of the realtime with macro mills podcast and download where I am podcast. Yes. Or I’m your host Douglas screen. And as always joined by my beautiful bride, Sarah Green, and on today’s show, what we’re talking about is eating well at any age, uh, and how meal prep companies can help you, uh, do so, um, we, we believe that uh, longevity in life is, is done by nutrition.
Yes, absolutely. And we know that food is fuel and that food can either assist us or it can hinder our ability to get through life and to stay lean, stay healthy. So you’re saying Doritos and Twinkies aren’t the solutions? No, no, no, not last. I checked. So you can’t out-train a bad diet. No, no. But there was a dude that ate McDonald’s every day. Still lived to be like 80 or something. I don’t know. We’ll have to Google that. But so funny. I think I think he ate like a Big Mac every day or I don’t know. But don’t take that advice. Do not take that advice. Fantastic. No, but good health and an awesome chiseled figure usually come pretty easily when you’re young. Like, do you remember what you look like when you were 20 with the best Meal Prep Companies?
I was uh, uh, I was chiseled. Um, what was that movie? The 300 or whatever it was then, yeah, why you asking me about movies? Okay. So just so you know, I don’t watch movies and I just really don’t watch too much TV either. I was in the Marine Corps for a long time because I didn’t have a choice not to be like chiseled and to be honest, in the, in your 20s, as a male, uh, your testosterone is peaking at that point. So people, uh, get in their twenties, they can be. So we were, we have the fortune to speak with the cardiologist. Um, Gosse two weeks ago. And he was saying, and this is kind of one of our statistics I guess for the show was saying that if a child is obese by the age of 15, not morbidly obese, but on the obese level, uh, their risk for heart disease and obesity throughout their life is like almost guaranteed. Yeah. It’s pretty sad.
It is pretty sad when you think about it, and that’s really, the parents have a lot of control over that. So yeah, you gotta make sure watching out for everybody in the family, not just yourself, but, um, yeah. So we’re talking about being 20 and being fit and chiseled, but, but what about your thirties, your fifties older years? Um, [inaudible] but yeah, we feel it’s important to eat right at every age so that you can feel great at every stage and every milestone and every, you know, at every point in your life. Um, and you do that by eating healthy, keeping active and just maintaining throughout the life the statistic or the standard of movement per week. Are we still at 120 active minutes per, per, you know, I don’t know the exact quote off the top of my head, but it’s something like, um, you’re supposed to be active on all or most days of the week for 30 to 60 minutes? Um, and that’s a moderate intensity level. If I’m, if I’m remembering correctly from the American college of sports medicine, if you Google their standards, that’s pretty much the gold standard for exercise and activity.
So you’re saying if we develop these habits in our twenties, uh, we’re eating right, uh, we possibly using meal prep companies, um, then those habits can conform and we’re exercising every day, uh, and as we get into our thirties and forties and 50s and so forth. It should just be routine. Yeah, it should be. It should be. And I mean, I know everything changes depending on kind of where you are, where you’re at in life. I mean, in your 20s, usually, you’re in college or you’re starting your career, usually, your budget’s a hindrance, um, for buying good, healthy food. Um, but you also have more time generally in your 20s than what you do as you get older. As you know, my thirties are coming to an end, but I know, but yeah, you know, when you’re, when you’re in your 20s, I mean, gosh, you have so much more time to kind of explore and find out, find your groove, know what, know what you like and um, what works well for you. But you can establish really good habits and behaviors, um, when you have that extra time in your 20s. So, so why does it matter when you’re older eating a healthier diet? Oh gosh. Well, I mean, there’s just so many more roadblocks. I mean, when you’re an older adult, you’ve got, usually, your appetite’s down is great. Um, there’s just other things that come up. It’s a convenience factor and it’s like my,
my dad has always has said, he said, you can either pay for, uh, your, your, your health now or you can pay for it later. As you age. Uh, you can choose, you can make the choices now to eat healthier, um, and spend a little money like on meal prep companies or a personal trainer or you can get into your sixties and seventies and you can pay a doctor and you can pay probably double what you would hospital bills and whatever else. Chronic diseases that you developed. I love bad diets. Business is good.
I think they love it. I think they feel bad. I mean they’ve gotten into that industry for a reason. But yeah, I mean everything. I mean, what motivates you in your 20s isn’t what’s going to motivate you in your 30s. And that’s not going to be the same thing that motivates you in your forties. I mean, looking good is generally, I would say in your 20s, that’s probably your main driver, your main focus. Um, it probably, yeah, I found a good one, but I’m not supposed to grade it is this. They thanks. Um, but yeah, I mean those different parts of our life we’ve got different things that intrinsically motivate us. Um, in your thirties, you’re usually developing a family. So, um, a lot of times
developing or like making a family or creating your family and [inaudible] your careers a little bit more stable. You’re still really young. Yeah. I think you have it figured out and then the 40 sit and you’re like, why was I doing, what was I thinking in my twenties? Trying to deadlift 400 pounds. Yeah. Don’t kill it. Don’t kill it. But yeah, I think we have a, um, a step. Um, so 49% of American adults surveyed between 2013 and 2016 reported trying to lose weight at some point during the previous 12 months. And that’s from a report from the CDC. Who’s the CDC? Is that like that with some cool new like, like jazz bar? We’re going to go down to the CDC tonight. It sounds cold, but no. Okay. No centers of disease and control. Okay, go ahead. Yup. Um, and then older people, for example, were less likely than young adults to report attempted weight loss cause they gave up, they just said, you know what, I’m going to be fat the rest of my life. Yeah. I don’t know. Maybe that’s my theory. It was probably not that the truth.
And it gets more frustrating when you can’t make progress as easily. I mean, when you start an exercise routine, like let’s say you’re 25, you start an exercise routine or something that you haven’t tried before, it’s a lot easier to adjust and adapt and, and get your body moving, how it’s supposed to move. Um, it’s also a lot easier to adopt new behaviors and habits because you can focus better. Um, I dunno, it’s just a lot easier. It’s harder to develop new patterns, new behaviors, and new habits. The older you get, cool. But yeah, wherever you’re at in the age spectrum, there are some pretty universal ideals when it comes to nutrition, um, that is useful for everyone. So, um, in your twenties when you’re at your peak conditioning, um, it’s generally when you have more time to explore and learn about what works for you nutritionally, physically. Um, but sometimes, yeah.
Do you know where you can nutritionally get sound at, at macro meals? online.com Oklahoma’s number one reviewed meal prep company. Do you know that? Yeah. Okay. I didn’t know if you knew that or not. I just want to throw that in there side of Canada. But go ahead.
I love your interruptions. Okay. Um, but yeah, I mean, compare your twenties to let’s say your seventies and a lot of things change in comparison to the 20-year-old men in their seventies lose appetite, which we talked about. Um, they need a lot of good quality nutrition in the food that they do eat because their appetite may be suppressed. Um, and then their digestion is lowered. So they might need to take a multivitamin, mineral supplements, digestive enzymes, things like that. Um, but yeah, another stat is that older people with a BMI of 25 to 30, Oh, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. What was back at those [inaudible]. So for us, um, less smart non-scientist people. What’s BMI when it comes to Meal Prep Companies?
It’s a body mass index. So basically it’s, it takes into consideration your height versus your weight. There’s nothing else in that formula. It’s just your body weight in kilograms divided by your height and meters squared will give you your BMI. Tough. But yeah, I mean, um, so a BMI of 25 to 30, they have, um, the lowest risk of death while those with a BMI of greater than 30, which would put you at the obesity.
This isn’t terrible. I think maybe at higher mortality risk, aren’t they saying like the thirties now? Morbid obese. I don’t, I think too at 25, I believe you’re considered overweight and then at 30 you’re considered obese and then there are classifications of obese. That’s just a, I don’t think that’s a cookie-cutter skill then this is just my personal opinion because I work out, you know, most days of the week and I’m bigger, I’m taller, so I have more lean muscle mass. Right. Not a good standard other than the BMI scale for a large population considering all things. So I mean I think it would be good if you’re doing a mass population that you also follow it with waist circumference. I think that tells a little bit better picture. But again, it’s just, there’s not a way to use a standard formula for all, all populations. So it’s a good compromise. Let’s put it that way.
So, we have two recommendations for preventing chronic disease, right? And promoting health, using your favorite meal prep companies. Again, two recommendations for preventing chronic disease. So we’re going to try to prevent our chronic diseases, the, the heart, the stomach, the floor of the gut stuff that Sarah is talking about, like um, maybe you know, cancerous stuff.

We’re going to get active. We’re going to get our butts off the couch.
We’re going to stop eating Lay’s potato chips and stuff, watching TV. And then we’re going to number two, we’re going to choose to eat. Oh stay active protein, healthy fats, eat colorful fruits and vegetables. So no laced potatoes. I did not see that in [inaudible]. So we’re going to get active, we’re going to stay active, and then we’re going to choose lean protein, healthy fats, colorful fruits, and vegetables. I don’t see a whole lot of carbohydrates in there. Um, but we know those are important to eat those. Yeah, let’s make smarter choices when it comes to the carbohydrates, the simple versus the complex. You’re watching your fiber intake, that’s going to make sure that you’re not eating as many refined or processed carbohydrates, which is what you really should avoid is the refined and processed carbs. Cool. So we have a pretty cool quote here from Winston Churchill.
If you want to go ahead and go to the pessimist, sees the difficulty in every opportunity and the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. And that’s from Winston Churchill’s. It’s so good. It is. The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. I love it. This is loving it. So, guys, we’re going to end this show here.
