Why Building Muscle Is The Key To Lifelong Weight Loss & Higher Life Expectancy


When you hear the word “muscles”, your mind might go straight to images of weight lifting or the gym. While your muscles are responsible for keeping your strength and flexibility at a healthy level, they also serve a lot of different functions you might have never considered before. 

My guest today has spent her career studying the interconnectivity of muscles with the rest of the body. Her name is Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, and according to her research, muscles are actually critical components to metabolism, lifelong weight loss, and more! I’m so excited to share this wide-ranging conversation with you all. And now, please help me welcome the one-and-only, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, to The School of Greatness.
