The Only 47 Words Of Health Advice You'll Ever Need

[Yesterday @DarrenM898 reminded me of this piece I wrote in 2015, and given the volume of the diet wars these days, thought I'd reshare. Still holds up pretty well I think!]

In no particular order:
  • Get vaccinated.
  • Avoid trans fats.
  • Replace saturated fats with unsaturated if you can.
  • Cook from whole ingredients.
  • Minimize restaurant and ultra-processed foods.
  • Cultivate friendships.
  • Don't smoke.
  • Nurture sleep.
  • Drink alcohol at most moderately.
  • Exercise as often as you can enjoy
  • Only drink those calories that you love
Comparatively, everything else is minutia.
