Big news from today's edition of Archives of Internal Medicine: body size is not necessarily a good indicator of how healthy someone might be. Good living habits help a lot!
Those "risk factors" can be tamed, even ended, rather simply. Read on.
If you're on the heavier side of the scale but not experiencing high blood pressure or high cholesterol and other "unspecified" risk factors, you're likely to be in better health than your neighbors in different circumstance.
Please. Take the advice I've been offering recently: get outdoors for limited amounts of time, lose some weight (only a pound at a time. Don't make this harder by forcing unrealistic expectations into your diet plan), and move around. Climb stairs instead of using elevators, talk pleasant strolls, do some windowsill gardening if you can't start an outdoors garden, and stop smoking (get professional help if necessary).
World-famous psychiatrist Dr. A. Twerski tells me that "Addicts and people on chemotherapy need [him] less" after he gives them copies of my book. "They simply do better after reading It's My Crisis! And I'll Cry if I Need To: A Life Book that Helps You to Dry Your Tears and to Cope with a Medical Challenge!" he says.
To your good health,
