Very few people have ever decided that they are going to just throw up their hands, decide that whatever happens happens, and just choose to stay sick and broken down and headed for an early grave. But at the same time, the evidence is there...
Do you feel good? Right now, at this moment, do you feel good? As a cardiologist now halfway through my third decade of practice, I've noticed two things about the possible answers to that question...

Before you begin figuring out how to replace your bad habits with good ones, you need to understand that everything you do for your health has to be a step toward nutrition.
