“When you’re not moving as much, you’re not using your muscles, they’re not firing – you’re no longer building them. And it becomes harder to maintain muscle mass if you’re not using it.” – Travis Zipper
“If we’re not feeding and using our bodies, what happens is the muscles atrophy, and that makes us more susceptible to falls, to injuries, to sicknesses. So, really maintaining a solid diet which has enough protein, enough movement throughout the day that someone would consider themselves still active, and getting a good variety of plants so that they’re not nutrient-deficient can be one of the biggest things that tends to, once again, fall between the cracks and the older demographic, or just say, as we age.” – Travis Zipper
“We think we trust our bodies, but sometimes our bodies can give us false senses of security.” – Travis Zipper
“As we get older, we synthesize protein less or less efficiently, so we actually need a little bit more of it, but we tend to eat less of it because of multiple reasons.” – Travis Zipper
“All the best coaches in the world have coaches. All the best doctors and teachers, they all have mentors. So, learning from someone that is always getting their hands dirty and not just taking one source as the holy grail of information, I think, is somewhere that definitely could be improved in the education level as we go on in life.” – Travis Zipper
“People look at it like ‘Oh my gosh. 30 fruits and vegetables for a week. That’s a lot.’ But when you really track, it’s not that much.” – Travis Zipper
