Adopting a lifestyle that supports optimal health is a big factor that supports longevity*. This means that the Habits of Health®, which are all about moving forward on the health continuum, are a great way to position yourself for a long and healthy life.

Once you reach optimal health, Co-founder and Independent OPTAVIA Coach, Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, recommends striving for UltraHealth, a state of health that pushes your body to be the very best in a state where it operates at optimal efficiency.

UltraHealth is seen as an augmentation of the Habits of Health lifestyle through:

  • Dietary optimization: Once you achieve optimal health, consult with your healthcare provider, and follow Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen’s recommendations in the Habits of Health on the optimal diet and calorie intake for you during this stage.
  • Movement enhancement: Increased activity and robust movement several times a week can help build optimal cardiovascular musculoskeletal and brain health! Come up with a safe and efficient exercise plan to share with your Coach and healthcare provider.
  • Brain-health optimization: Our brains need exercise just as much as our bodies! Try completing puzzles, playing games, reading books, writing, painting, and even having conversations with friends to get your brain moving.

Ask me, your Independent OPTAVIA Coach, about additional tips on achieving UltraHealth.

*No one can predict how long we are going to live, but research suggests that making an overall lifestyle change by taking an active role in your choices and behavior, including losing weight, eating healthier, moving more, and reducing stress, has the potential to help you live a longer, healthier life.
