Is your doctor sexy? When I say sexy, I mean are they lean, trim, do they have nice skin? Are they physically fit? Is it apparent that your doc is in good physical health?
Too often, physicians, health care professionals and those making nutrition recommendations are obese and sick themselves. Now, this doesn’t mean a physican can’t be in transition towards optimal health, but would you want to take diet advice from a fat doctor?
What about those doctors recommending a plant-based diet? Knowing they practice what they preach, what do they look like?
In today's video, we look at plant-based pioneers Dr. John McDougall, T Colin Campbell, Phd., Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., his son Rip Esselstyn and Dr. Neal Barnard.
Some of these physicians are in their 70s and 80s and are still practicing or presenting around the world. I'd say that's pretty darn sexy!
Next time you visit your doctor, I want you to ask yourself... "is my doctor sexy? Are they lean, trim and healthy? Do they practice what they teach?"
I want to be clear -- individual doctors looking good is not scientific evidence or justification for health recommendations. I would never tell anyone to eat a certain way because a doctor is lean! That’s a horrible idea!
Also, just because a doctor is overweight, doesn't mean they're incompetent or that you shouldn't listen to them. However, I do want you to be more conscious of who you're listening to and how they take care of themselves.
I want you to think about this and to share your thoughts. Answer this week’s Take Control Now question and put your response in the comments section below.
