I picked it up after reading an article on Dr. Attia, who at first seemed extreme in his physical practices but definitely rang a bell that we sit too much, eat too much, and keep our emotions locked up. I wanted to know more since some of the health challenges he described are part of my family’s history. Dr. Attia is encouraging us to move from what he calls a Medicine 2.0 disease-based model to Medicine 3.0, a proactive prevention model.
The author said, “I’m not fond of the way we reduce complex, nuanced, vitally important questions down to a simple either/or. Cardio or weights, low carbs or plant-based, keto or vegan?” He hopes to change the way we approach health and nutrition rather than telling us what to think or what to eat. Dr. Attia asserts that we may be looking through too narrow a lens and instead must attack body and mind on multiple fronts to maintain good health.
So here are my major takeaways:
You’ll be encouraged by his personal story that shows how important emotional health is to a life worth living. Enjoy reading and making the changes that will boost your aliveness now! And remember your body is a work in progress and you’re never too old or too young to start.
