The Six Best Doctors

I found this in my web wandering and fell in love with it. I don’t even know if it qualifies as an infographic.


In the close to 10 years I have been writing this blog I find that a lot of the loose ends have been burned off. In the beginning it was all about losing weight, counting calories, measuring portions, etc. Now, while I am aware of calories and portions, my focus has shifted entirely to simply living healthy. I weigh in the mid 150 pound range where I have dwelt for around five years. I have total confidence that I can control my weight. I don’t try any more. I am simply doing it. Just like Yoda said, “Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.”

I don’t think you need expensive gym memberships or more expensive personal trainers to get control of your weight. You can do it.

This infographic, or set of pictures with captions, tells the whole story for me. Get outside, move, drink water, get enough sleep, eat intelligently and enjoy the sunshine.

I hope you can get it to work for you.

For the record: While I don’t use a personal trainer, I realize that they know a lot about exercise and can be very helpful. Also, I have a number of friends who do that for a living. If you feel you need one, by all means, use one.

    If you are senior (past age 65), you cannot absorb vitamin D from sunlight.


    • Not true. What is true is that seniors are often LACKING in Vit D because –
      -Decreased dietary intake of vitamin D
      -Less exposure to sunlight
      – Reduced skin thickness
      -Impaired intestinal absorption

    Excellent advice


  4. This is a great post. People often get “hung up” on the symptom(s) and therefore never address the main issues resulting in their ongoing and/or recurring problems. As you write, weight wasn’t your “root problem;” it was the RESULT of deficiencies in lifestyle habits. Your “doctors” in this post provide the answers to addressing the “root causes” of so many people’s problems. You’ll notice, however, the answer was never found in ANY ONE “DOCTOR” alone. Integrating the various “doctors” synergistically result in the answers most people seek. LIFESTYLE is one word that refers to this integration that achieves real long term results.
    Great post, Tony!
