Salad Every Day? Is the TV Doctor Right?
Have you heard of Dr. Mehmet Oz? He is a cardiac surgeon who has a daily TV talk show called The Dr. Oz Show. On his show, he focuses on a variety of health issues. Now, I like his show. He generally does a good job of informing people about health issues. But when it comes to his advice about nutrition – watch out!
Dr. Oz generally dispenses “one-size-fits-all” advice about nutrition, and we now know that “one-size-fits-all” advice does NOT fit everyone! So how can you tell if Dr. Oz’s advice, or indeed any nutrition advice, really fits you?
One way to know if a given piece of nutrition advice fits you is to try it out. However, this is where it gets tricky. Generally, you have to try the advice out for at least six months to know if it really works for you.
For example, on Dr. Oz’s show, one of his so-called experts suggested eating salad every day. So you would need to eat salad every day for about six months, and watch to see if it improves your health, helps you reach your target weight, and gives you better energy or digestion. If you do it for less than six months, you haven’t given it a fair test.
But the problem here is that you need to spend A LONG TIME trying out every single bit of diet advice you get. It can take years or decades to do this, and I know this for a fact, because I’m living proof. Before I understood how to customize my diet, I followed a lot of one-size-fits-all experts. I tried their diet advice for a number of months, and when it invariable didn’t work, I’d be on to the next expert and the next diet. I spent 40 years doing this, and I was no closer to finding the answer to my health problems than I was the day I started!
But what if you could know ahead of time if a given piece of diet advice was right for you? What if you could avoid years and decades of trial-and-error, and know practically immediately whether it applied to you?
