As we come to the end of the year, there is a lot of talk about New Year’s Resolutions, diets, weight loss, etc. I have good news for you. I know the answer to all of your questions about diet and exercise. Are you ready? Here it is. . . All of the above.
I know, I know, you’re amazed it can be so complicated. All of the daytime talk show hosts and self help authors make it seem so simple. Wait, you don’t know what I mean? Ok, here goes:
Is obesity caused by high fructose corn syrup? Yes.
Is obesity caused by sedentary lifestyles? Sure.
Is it caused by artificial light? Yup.
Is it caused by antibiotics? Why not?
Is it caused by smartphones? Of course it is.
Is it caused by refined grains? Probably.
Is it caused by vaccines? No.
Is it caused by desk jobs? Definitely.
Is it caused by stress? Absolutely.
Is it caused by being rich? It always has been.
Is it caused by television? Totally.
I could go on, but I think you get the idea. So, why is this good news? Because now we can stop with the magic bullets and fix the problem. Cutting out any one of those things will do nothing. Here’s what you need to do: First, keep in mind that I am not a doctor, nutritionist, chemist, biologist, or any other kind of expert. Then, sleep when you’re tired and don’t sleep when you’re not tired. Eat when you’re hungry and don’t eat when you’re not hungry. Eat as wide a variety of foods as your pallet will tolerate. Be active. Go outside. That should about cover it. Happy New Year.
