One of the biggest killers in the U.S. today is heart disease…Heart disease is preventable!
Do you know someone in your family that has had heart disease? If you said yes, then you will want to watch this CNN special called The Last Heart Attack. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN has spent the last year studying this and shares his findings in this special report. It is eye opening and should be a wake-up call for all of us.
I am a believer that heart disease (and many of the health problems we are facing today) can be solved with proper nutrition and lifestyle. The problem is, these diseases are chronic (meaning we become sick over time) and as humans (for whatever reason) we do not like to address things until it is a serious problem. We stick our head in the sand and say, “I will eat better tomorrow” or “I will start working out tomorrow”. Well “tomorrow” may be too late. If we wait until our body gives us the big signal, we will have much bigger issues to deal with than figuring out how to eat better or finding time in our busy schedule to workout.
The good news is you can make a small changes in your lifestyle today and totally avoid having to deal with these bigger problems tomorrow. The first step is education. Make some time and watch this special report. It’s about 40 minutes long, but worth it.
Then, start taking action. The sooner you start, the easier it will be. I believe the best (and least painful) way of making change is baby steps. If you start now, you can change your lifestyle over time, in a easy manageable way. If you wait until tomorrow, well…it just may not be as much fun.
