Some say weight and health are perfectly correlated, but others don’t. There’s a veritable cornucopia of opinions on what good digestive health looks like, and only a handful of those assessments line up in agreement. And let’s not even get started on the issue of what constitutes a healthy diet!
In an effort to lock down some solid information, here’s what physicians, researchers, and other folks in the know have to say when it comes to indicators of good health.
But, if you find that you want, or need, to make some changes, it’s okay to take things slowly. Adding in a few things that you feel good about, whether it’s a piece of fruit with lunch, an afternoon walk, or calling a friend for support, can actually go a long way. Doing the best you can with the circumstances and resources that you have is, in fact, a huge victory!
