Last week my sister visited London for the first time in three years.

She lives with her family in Toronto, so it was a big deal to see her in London.

In celebration, my parents and siblings planned a get-together.

The only downside to the evening was that my family is all vegan!


That meant bland food, and my father continually trying to convince me that.

“You can’t tell the difference between {any given food} and the {vegan alternative}”

They joined the religion based on ethical grounds and to my family, the fact my father

lost weight after his conversion adds credence to their faith.

The only problem is, he’s now frail.

A single lap around the local park a few times per week is all he can manage.

You see, your body is a system.

A system that continually looks for balance (known as homeostasis).

When you change one thing, it will have effects on other systems.

Many times we can be myopic about health.

For example, you start running when you’re overweight.

Good for your heart, but catastrophic for your knees!

When you should make more changes gradually.

That’s why I always stress that achieving your goals is a lifestyle change.

You must look at:

Eating better

Lifting heavier

And moving more

You must not choose just one.
