Re: This is the single best thing you can do for your health.

That was a great presentation. Low tech is often overlooked.

I'm a 30 minute a day because I have a dog so I guess I'm doing OK.

Re: This is the single best thing you can do for your health.

Along with excercise nutrition is critical, check out the book Health and Vitality Truths by Dr. Luan Pho. He is an internal medicine doc and speaks to how nutrition can prevent a number of illnesses. An interesting read in a non technical fashion. Check it out.

Re: This is the single best thing you can do for your health.

Book looks pretty good. Going to have to get it. - thanks

"Have you ever learned something that goes against everything you've believed about it for your entire life and remember what that felt like? Well, it's about to happen again after you read HEALTH AND VITALITY TRUTHS: TO KNOW AND TELL by Dr. Luan Q. Pho. This internal medicine physician realizes that the general public has far too many preconceived ideas about what being "healthy" is all about. But he drops some big time nutritional health truth bombs that will rock your world and send your head spinning with compelling evidence to support such ideas like:

- Reversing Type 2 diabetes simply by increasing the amount of Vitamin D in your blood
- Limiting your consumption of carbohydrates to preserve so many aspects of your health controlled by insulin
- Moderate your consumption of protein insuring you have ample for bodily functions, but not too much
- Embracing fat consumption instead of a low-fat diet will make you healthier and ward off disease
- Why the USDA's Dietary Guidelines are a horrible way to be feeding yourself and leads to more illness
- How the heavy promotion of grain-based foods as "healthy" has more to do with money than your health
- Why eating an Atkins-styled low-carb, high-fat diet is much better than the heavily-promoted high-carb, low-fat diet
- Not all calories are the same...some are worse for you than others
- De-stressing your life will do more to improve your health than just about anything outside of diet
- Weight loss and optimal health can be effortless by making one very simple but important change in your diet
- Diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's can be prevented and cured if the focus is put on the real solution

There's so much information in this book that will rock your world that I cannot recommend it highly enough! READ THE BOOK and embrace the concepts you learn about--if you dare!"

In all honesty, that little video was the final straw that pushed me back into my "program". So, thanks Dan.

Re: This is the single best thing you can do for your health.

Dan,

Just wanted to thank you for the push that it took to get me off my butt. I never have had a desk job so have been somewhat active but have been meaning to loose some weight for quite a while.

Anyhow, started walking after seeing this and am now up to ten miles a day. About half walking and half jogging.

Thanks again,

Re: This is the single best thing you can do for your health.

Dan, after last Saturday, I'm willing to concede only that this this is the second best thing you can do.
Took the dual sport out and found some race tracks with deep woops. We ran those until our arms and legs finally just gave out - completely. Rested up a bit, and did it again. I have NEVER worked so hard in my life!!! Holy crap.
It's now Tuesday, and my shoulders still hurt.
Still though, I have to admit that I'm remaining consistent to my treadmill and elliptical. But only because I can't ride the woops every day

Thanks Dan I had just started a walking program a couple of weeks ago but found this week I was starting to lose momentum. I think I will have renewed energy and focus now. I also just recieved my pedometer in the mail today so I will really try and keep this up. Thanks for your post again WAL

THANKS Jim - This is excellent and a book that I will purchase and recommend. It is a great compliment to the walking video. I am about 1/2 way through it and find it awesome. It is amazing how a few simple things can greatly improve your health and limit disease.

These two men make it easy to understand. Thanks again for the recommendation.
