I’m in Cozumel, lecturing anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists at a meeting sponsored by Emory University.
I still feel good when people I’ve known for years tell me that they can’t believe my transformation. It’s particularly fulfilling to teach about the care of patients with obesity, sleep apnea, and coronary heart disease. Especially since I know these problems first hand, and the benefits that exercise, a healthy diet, and weight loss have had in improving my health and function.
After my last lecture, I made a beeline to the treadmill (I lectured in my workout clothes – it’s a casual meeting – all ready to go! No excuses).
What to eat? Steamed, tasty local fish… veggies… bread (not shown below; I DO eat starch, though at home I have sweet potatoes [skin on] or brown rice). With wonderful local hot sauce, made from habanero peppers (hot!)
