Giuseppe Riva, 47, was born and raised in Italy before moving to America two decades ago. Since then, he's noticed a decline in the quality of his diet, the frequency of his exercise, and the overall state of his health. Combined with a relentless travel schedule that includes international trips, Giuseppe opens up to Dr. Sanjay Gupta about his desire to make a change. Using a life expectancy calculator powered by data scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, Giuseppe will learn his current life expectancy, and the ways in which he can improve it. Along the way, we'll all learn the tips and tricks that can improve not just the length of our lives, but the quality of those years.
