At 70, she was told her medications would need to be increased to address her health issues, but Joan decided to make some serious changes in her daily life. Now 74, Joan tells us she was able to get off all of her medications and she lost over 68 pounds.
Joan's new healthy habits include:
- Training with weights 4 to 5 times a week
- Doing cardio and yoga
- Measuring her food and eating 5 small meals a day
- Drinking at least 3 liters of water each day
- Daily meditation
"You can't turn back the clock, but you can wind it up again," Joan shares with The Doctors.
Dr. Ian Smith urges everyone looking to make a health change in their life to give new habits time to set in. "When changing your habits, it is important to be flexible and try new things. Allow for setbacks and give yourself time to make a new habit and in time it will make a new you," he shares.
