I interact with hundreds of patients each week and get asked a lot of questions.  On Fridays I like to share some of the answers I give and hope it has value for you.

Something I’m eating?  Recently I’ve been enjoying cauliflower pizza.  For those that don’t know – this is not pizza with cauliflower on top but rather pizza with a crust made from cauliflower.  By not having the bread crust, the glycemic impact (response to sugar) is not there and I can enjoy eating pizza without feeling sluggish.  I’ve been eating these a couple times a week for dinner with a large salad on the side.

Something I’ve been enjoying for exercise?  Rather than do all my leg exercises using both legs at once (as I did for decades), I have switched to almost all single leg movements for the past few months.  I’ve noticed that it has helped my running and my knees feel more stable when I aggressively push off such as when sprinting, jumping or lunging.

Something I use that’s been helping?  Last year as a birthday gift I got an inversion table.  I use mine regularly and it helps a ton.  I don’t usually fully invert but go back far enough where I get a great stretch but no head rush.  I remain there for 2-3 minutes and do that 4-6 times a week.  It alleviates significant amounts of tension in my spine and at the end of my busiest days I rarely feel stiff or sore.

Something I’d recommend more people do?  I encourage people to get up earlier.  So many people sleep in until the last possible second and their morning turns to chaos if anything slows them down for even a second.  Most days I am up by 5-6am and really enjoy having more time to get primed for the day.  It can be tough at first but it’s totally worth it.
