Podcast: Episode 177-Take Care of Yourself and Why You Should Avoid Extreme Eating

Welcome and thank you for listening. We all realize that exercise is good for you. Last week I discussed how it could add years onto your life. I discuss a study on this episode how exercise might help prevent colon and lung cancer. Exercise, is a lot like everything in life. You get out of it what you put into it. Why can’t people stay on the exercise or the plant strong wagon? Is it your spouse’s fault, your kids, your boss? I have been reading two books that have given me some insight into the problem. The first is What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell and the second is 12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson. What the Dog Saw is a collection of pieces that Malcolm wrote that shows things are often not as they seem. We use the Bell Curve to describe a lot of phenomena and then focus interventions aimed at the large portion in the center. Sometimes focusing on the ends is actually more important and rewarding. We use plant based nutrition to reverse lifestyle diseases. It works wonderful if you can do it and a lot of people realize it but cannot stay on track. Perhaps those people need to look elsewhere and perhaps inward. Are you worthy of good health? Would you neglect other’s health like you neglect yours? When a parent is in the hospital, the adult children are on their parents to take better care of themselves. Take their medicine and watch their diets. But do they? Dr. Peterson suggests that perhaps they do not find themselves worthy of attention to their health details.
This may allow people to go as far as extreme eating. These high fat, salt, calorie meals were described in a NY Times article. You might be surprised just how bad some of those more expensive sit down chains are with regard to nutrition. Just because it costs more does not mean it is healthy.
