I knew Dean Ornish when he was a medical student, doing studies on yoga and diet with heart disease patients. I suspected then he was destined for great things. This article he just wrote for Newsweek beautifully expresses what i like to call The Art of Growing Young.
What really works to make sustainable changes in diet and lifestyle? It’s probably not what you think. In over 30 years of conducting clinical research, I’ve learned that the real keys are pleasure, joy and freedom, not willpower, deprivation and austerity. Joy of living is sustainable; fear of dying is not.
Read the whole article, Heed what it says, and Enjoy the results!!–Dr. McKee
