“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” — Hippocrates
I went to the organic juice store to get my usual, and the owner was there.
He’s full of wisdom from his mentor and he has an amazing set of stories of people he’s helped get their health back.
Anyway, since I hadn’t seen him in a while I asked him if he had learned anything new about health.
He took a deep breath. He paused, as he got ready to fire away his latest insights.
He said there is nothing new with health — it’s always the same. He then rattled off 7 things:
- Low fat
- Low sugar
- Low protein
- Low gluten
- Think better
He said it always comes down to that. He said people over complicate it, or try to find new solutions, but he said that time is our best teacher, and those are the keys to health, longevity, and vitality that have proven themselves over time.
I asked him why he said low protein, and he said because protein can tax our liver and kidneys, and it produces uric acid.
As I left, I thought to myself, that sometimes knowing is the hard part.
But other times, it’s the doing.
And then other times, the hard part is knowing how to measure whether we are on track.
And sometimes the hardest part is just getting started.
