Doctors On Call: The Benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle

April 27, 2012 | Health Advice | By: Zach Muhrer | Tags: , , , , , ,

Last week Dr. Fisher spoke on obesity and the health related risks associated with obesity on Doctors On Call.  This followed Dr. Oller and Dr. Loney’s presentation on diabetes the week before.  These videos are available on SmokyHillsTV.org.  Click here to view past Doctors On Call videos.

All the Post Rock providers believe that it is important for individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Regardless of whether you are overweight or obese, it is a good idea to maintain a healthy diet and incorporate exercise into your lifestyle.

Dr. Fisher does an excellent job in his Doctors On Call interview of outlining just what a healthy, portion controlled diet should look like.  He points individuals to look at MyPlate, a Food and Nutrition Service program created by the US Department of Agriculture.

Exercise is important, even if it comes only in small doses.  Dr. Mike Evans outlines in his 23 and a half hours program the shockingly strong benefits that even a small exercise program can have on your health.

Before making drastic changes, it is a good idea to have a visit with your primary care provider to assess any possible risk associated with weight loss.  Call Post Rock today to schedule an appointment.
