In an episode of The Model Health Show (Shawn Stevenson’s podcast), Steven Gundry had stated that 8% of our health is controlled by our genes (TMHS - Episode 336). I have also heard other experts say similar things like that 95% of diseases are not strictly genetic. Knowing this makes me want to shake people when they say they have no control over something because “it’s genetic.” Yes, we know that diseases can run in the family but if you take care of yourself properly, almost anything can be prevented. Even if you don’t know or trust these experts, at the very least, this is a very empowering idea.
You can beat your odds for diabetes, certain cancers, and just about any other disease. You can get your ideal body. You can develop the skills you need in order to reach the goals you are striving for. In order to do those things you need to do one thing. Put. In. The. Work. Get to know what diet works best for you. Stop consuming anything and everything you crave, whether it be food or entertainment. Instant gratification kills productivity. Those hours you spend with mindless entertainment you can spend getting closer to your goals. Take this concept and take control! I personally love learning what experts have to say about health and nutrition and treating myself as an experiment in my journey of self-improvement.
If you have not started your self-improvement journey (or if you have but have yet to do these things), I highly suggest taking these steps:
A big part of why I created this platform is to help with the 3rd step.
