Doctor’s Tip: Dietary changes are evolutionary not revolutionary

exercise, diet, behavior change

“Throughout my 22 years in public health it has been clear that two health behaviors are by far the most challenging to alter: exercise and diet. This is true for three reasons: 1) meaningful clinical benefit occurs only with constant (daily in the case of diet) repetition of the behavior, 2) “results” of the behaviors are often not readily apparent (particularly with dietary changes), and 3) the surrounding cultural, physical and “market” environments may not support the new behaviors.
