  1. Excellent info Dr van Loon. A year ago I rolled my ankle while jogging on a trail. For a few weeks I could barely walk, and it only gradually got better after months and months. I went from exercising almost every day, to not being able to walk around my apartment. What saved me was HIIT YouTube videos, which I started doing on one leg. Swimming is also good but not available to me during the pandemic. The only question I have after this, is how to turn on the signaling pathways to make protein after exercise? It seems related to insulin and AMPK.

  2. Optimum protein intake really needs to be sorted out. Prof. Luc's information is excellent but their are also studies which indicate that "lower" protein, especially BCAA may extend life. Obviously for transient conditions which require increasing protein intake. For the small fraction of us that will do it, we need tools that will monitor percent body fat and percent muscle. Also, as an older person who is dealing with sleep issues, the guidance is to not eat/snack within 2 to 4 hours before bed.
