Dr. Attia's approach to longevity is outlined in his 496-page book Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity.[0] He advocates for medicine 3.0, which focuses on treating the causes of diseases early and emphasizing prevention rather than waiting for symptoms to manifest.[2] In Outlive, he delves deeply into the four main causes of prolonged mortality: cardiovascular ailments/stroke, metabolic dysfunction, neurodegenerative illness, and malignancy.[2] He emphasizes the importance of exercise, suggesting that ideally 10 to 12 hours of exercise a week is necessary for a longer and happier life.[2]

Dr. Peter Attia is an experienced athlete, having been a boxer, swimmer, cyclist, and now a rucker, archer, rower, and strength trainer.[0] His former obsession with the “sweet science of bruising” is now replaced by a passion for studying science.[0] He has made it his mission to help people live longer and better lives.
