Heart Health and a Full-Time Lifestyle!
What are you and I putting in our bodies? Are you leading a healthy lifestyle since your decision to travel full-time? I can only answer those questions for myself. I have not been treating my castle with care for some time. I have tried to convince myself that I consume a fairly healthy selection of foods. NOT!
Have you ever read, Eat for Your Blood Type (dadamo.com)? You might try it. I am an A+ and for years, I have consumed red meat on a regular basis. I also have eaten my fair share of pork over the years. I’m from the South. It’s what we do! Meat is not on my play list as an A+.
My primary care provider asked me if I was up against myself, meaning, was I saying one thing and doing another. Answer, YES! At 55, I have plenty of time to reverse things. I also have an additional incentive. I have Paroxysmal AFib. My heart goes out of rhythm for no apparent reason due to a miss fire in the Atria (the upper chambers of my heart). That puts me at greater risk for strokes and clots. I don’t want to be hooked up to a bunch of tubes or the other terminal option simply because I chose to be a knucklehead!
Do some research on your own. If you want some very credible help, check out www.drjohnday.com. Dr. Day is a cardiologist who trained at Johns Hopkins and Sanford. He provides great insight on a number of topics.
Let’s face it, if your heart is malfunctioning, all bets are off. Don’t do what I do. Find out for yourself if what I’m telling you is the truth.
I am now in day 4 of my radical change in eating habits. Will I stumble? Probably. Do I want to finish the race well? Absolutely!
Take care of your heart folks! Cheers!
