Many of the women I talk to who are working on getting fit and strong are really wanting a "toned" body. But the key to tone is MUSCLE tone. And no matter what goal you have, the bottom line is that adding (and preserving) your muscle is one of the keys to longevity, strength, and your ability to thrive as you go through time.

In today's show, I'm joined by Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, a functional medicine physician, and my own personal doctor. We discuss the concept she coined called "muscle-centric medicine." She believes that it's not that we're "over-fat" - it's that we're under-muscled.

When you learn some of the amazing things that muscle actually does, I think you'll agree that optimizing it through the way you work your 4 pillars of health is an essential awareness piece to have and will really support your goals and long-term health.
