Diet and Lifestyle

As an orthopaedic surgeon I believe that I play a small role in restoring patients to their optimal health. For most people in our society there are vast improvements that can be made by addressing diet and lifestyle issues. This is especially pertinent for patients who are sedentary, overweight or have diabetes.

There is of course a lot on the web about these topics and it is easy to become confused by all the (sometimes conflicting) information. My personal research has led me to believe that a diet low in processed “food”, sugar, and carbohydrates and filled with fresh meat, fish, vegetables, and some fruit is the optimal human diet for most people.

Coupled with a sensible consistent exercise program that includes strength training, good sleep, and strong community relationships, this strategy has the potential to improve your health, reduce the risk of disease, provide energy for activity and generally make your body the best tool it can be to live your life.

These sites provide good information on where to start…
