Healthy Eating is Easy and a Choice

Updated: Aug 11, 2019



After over 14 years in clinical practice as a Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist focused on GI and Liver diseases, what I thought I already knew has become even clearer: Physicians are provided very little formal training on nutrition and diet, nor on their overall impact on one's health, disease states, and well-being.

We all know the basics: Eat high fiber, low-fat foods, etc. Yet we all need reminding.


I will use this evolving blog as tool to share, educate, remind and redirect people to healthier, cleaner eating, with the goal of a sustainable plan and overall better quality of life.


Here are some of the Basics:
Eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein
Portion control
You can eat—but moderate salt, fat, and sugars
Exercise (even on any level) is necessary for a long life

Basic enough concept. Read the labels. Too long? Cannot pronounce it? Comes in a bag? Likely it is processed foods. More and more data is being published showing how unhealthy "processed" foods are.


What I tell my patients when asked: "How do I lose weight?"
1. No white flour 2. No white sugar 3. Nothing in a bag

Even I needed resetting and coaching.


Last October, I started to reassess how I ate. How much. How often.


I went to a coach. Even as a Gastroenterologist — I needed coaching on how to "reset" my "healthy" eating, nutrition and dietary choices. I needed accountability.


I lost 15 pounds in 3 months and ~5% body fat with accountability. Maintaining it today with minimal weekday exercise. I saw it work on others. Then it worked for me.


This is me. October 1st to December 31st. Some meals I made.

Personally


I eat a high fiber, mostly plant-based diet, no red meat, drink 4 liters of water a day, exercise, and am focused on "nutrition simplified." No pills. No supplements. No purchased meals.
