It is not too late..YET

 A man going about his day to day routine started experiencing heartburn-like symptoms that were very painful.  He could not get it to settle so he went to the doctor.  While he was waiting in the doctor’s office, he fell dead.   Just like that… he was gone.   It wasn’t heartburn, it was a massive heart attack!  This man left behind a wife and children and this would most likely have been prevented if he ate a healthy diet and exercised regularly.  This saddens me SO MUCH!  Being someone that didn’t really care what he ate and ate for pleasure instead of eating for fuel, I know exactly how easy it can be to fall in this rut.  So many people today don’t even know what is healthy and what isn’t!  It isn’t easy to live a healthy lifestyle… especially when every time we turn around we have unhealthy options in front of our eyes!

Here are the facts from the CDC: 1/3 of all cancers can be PREVENTED from diet. 1/3 of deaths from stroke & diabetes can be PREVENTED from diet. 1/2 of deaths from unnecessary prescription drugs (which is #3 in US deaths by the way) can be PREVENTED from diet. 1/3 of deaths from heart disease can be PREVENTED from diet. Even advanced stages of heart disease can be REVERSED from diet. In 8 years, there has been a 70% increase in diabetes amongst the age group 30-39 & 40% increase in older age groups. Heart disease, diabetes, cancers are simply symptoms of poor health and nutrition. The US spends more on health care per person than any other country in the world. We exceed the #2 country by more than 50%. So is it because we have the best health care? NO! We rank #37 in quality health care in the world.  We can cut health care costs if we ate healthy and exercised regularly!

Way too often I hear about people wanting to change their health AFTER they got bad news from a doctor about diabetes risk or heart attack risk.  People are given bad news about cancer, put on blood pressure medication and many other issues because they have let themselves go too far.  You are playing with fire of you don’t do something with your health TODAY!  Do it for yourself and do it for your family!  You don’t want to risk leaving your family without their mother or father, husband or wife.  You need to take action today!  This obesity epidemic is out of control!  Our children are projected to have a much lower life expectancy than we have.  Let’s change that trend!  Be the example you should be to your friends and family, take control of your health.  Other’s will be inspired by what you are doing and will want to do the same.

The story you cite about a man having heartburn and dying is all too familiar. My husband's business partner died this past summer at age 52 . He had heartburn (and was a health-care professional BTW) and went to bed, never to wake. He left behind a wife and two girls, ages 13 and 15. It could have been prevented with diet and exercise. Don't let this happen to you or those you care about!

You know it took a doctor's visit to get me to make a change in my life. It wasn't as serious as a heart attack or anything, but it was eye opening. I think a lot of people just don't realize how bad obesity or poor nutrition is because they do it for so long without many repercussions. If only people truly knew how much their life would improve, then I guarantee that they would make the change.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes a little over a year ago. Within nine months after eating right and working out, my doctor took me off all my medications. About two months later, she took the diabetes diagnosis off my chart entirely. With the help of P90x and Shakeology, I cured myself of a chronic, "uncurable" disease. There is more hope out there than most people realize, and unless you're already dead, I believe anyone can turn their health around.
