Episode 22:48 DON’T Change Your Diet… Do This Instead

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) talk about the ONE thing you MUST change if you want to improve your health… and it’s NOT your diet.

Episode 22:48 DON’T Change Your Diet… Do This Instead

There are two things we want you to learn from this episode.

The first is this:

Your behaviors determine your health.

- Smoke too many cigarettes and you’ll get lung cancer.

- Drink too much alcohol and you’ll get cirrhosis of the liver.

- Eat too much sugar and you’ll develop Diabetes.

You get the idea.

Now, let’s look at the second lesson:

It actually begins with a question:

If your behaviors determine your health, what determines your behaviors?

Great question… and an important one as well!

Important because it is your MINDSET - what you BELIEVE - regarding exercising, eating right, getting enough sleep, spending time in the sun, etc… that will determine your behaviors.

And therein lies the second lesson:

Your MINDSET determines your behaviors.

Connect these two lessons together and you’ll have a tremendous understanding of health:

1) Your behaviors determine your health.

2) Your MINDSET determines your behaviors.

So, why is this important?

Because when seeking to improve one’s health, most people focus solely on the first lesson… on changing their behaviors.

For example, they begin to do things like exercise more and/or eat better.

And while these changes are good, they most likely will not be sustained, nor have a lasting impact, if the MINDSET of the person hasn’t also changed.

That is, if in your mind you SEE yourself as unhealthy, all the healthy behaviors in the world won’t, in the long run, improve your health.

Sure, you may look and feel healthier for awhile, but in the long run you’ll sabotage your efforts and revert back to behaviors that are consistent with your MINDSET.

For this reason, it is vitally important to identify and correct weaknesses in your MINDSET if you want to have any hope of adopting, and sustaining, healthy behaviors.

THAT is what this episode is about…

The importance of working on the one aspect of your health that most people, and doctors, ignore:
