Welcome! I’m so excited to be doing this tune-up with you! This week, we’ll try to move toward the goals from Dr. Gregor’s book How Not to Die. They may be stretch goals for you. Some of them are for me. (I mean, a cup and a half of beans every day? 90 minutes of moderate exercise?) But every well-timed step closer is a step toward health. We’ll also be adding meditation and sleep.
I made a spreadsheet to keep track. You can download it now as printable pdf that you can write on. I’ll put the live spreadsheet in the cloud tomorrow for you to use. The image below shows what my tracker might look like at the end of day 1. It shows that I made the goal of 23 points for the food and water, but am 1.5 short on the exercise and sleep.
Don’t Push Too Hard!
If you usually eat a low-fiber diet and don’t exercise at all, then you’ll want to start gradually. Eating just one serving of each item of this list would be a huge step toward health for many people. Take a similar approach to the exercise. Of course, follow the advice of your doctor or dietitian. This tune-up is meant to be a way to explore Dr. Greger’s new book together, not individual medical advice.
