S3: E2 – Mastering Your Potential for Longevity: Practical Implementation of Diet, Exercise, & Sleep

Jackie is nurse, mom of three, and certified nutrition, physique, and bodybuilding coach who has expanded my understanding of proper nutrition and how to create practical changes to your lifestyle to achieve your health goals permanently. She is a Women’s Health coach with Team Biolayne. Have a listen because creating a lifestyle that is healthy and joyful is hard! But remarkably easy to do when you schedule the time. Shifting mindset and priorities can make the seemingly impossible achievable.

Weight reduction significantly alleviates various symptoms associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), such as excessive daytime sleepiness. It also markedly improves irritability and other neuropsychiatric issues. This improvement extends to cardiovascular health, effectively lowering risks of high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes, thereby enhancing overall quality of life. In moderately obese patients, a 10-15% loss in weight can lead to a 50% reduction in OSA severity. Consequently, one of my sustained treatment strategies for addressing sleep apnea includes building muscle and losing fat.
