Stay­ing In Step— And Feel­ing Vi­tal— Af­ter 50 (And Through 100!)

Amazing Wellness - - WHAT I TAKE -

Midlife moth­er­hood hasn’t slowed down Sal­man­sohn, who walks a mile each week­day morn­ing with her son to school—and a mile back. She re­peats this when pick­ing him up in the af­ter­noon. “I now walk four miles a day with­out even try­ing, and I love it!” she says. “And when I walk with him, we have the best con­ver­sa­tions. On the way home, I clear my head. It’s part mind­ful­ness and med­i­ta­tion, and part phys­i­cal.” Weightlift­ing at the gym and yoga round out her fit­ness.

Re­search shows that in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing can boost mi­to­chon­drial en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and ex­pand longevity, so she oc­ca­sion­ally skips break­fast. The self-styled “pesca-egg-atar­ian” starts her day off with an avo­cado smoothie and eggs, while fa­vor­ing fish, veg­gies, and fruit for lunch and din­ner. Her fa­vorite snack: brain-boost­ing wal­nuts.
