Exercise is Medicine

Foundational Health Principle 7: Move for 150 minutes per week
Fact of the day: Exercising 150 minutes per week for four months straight is equally effective as a prescription antidepressant.

Like 90% of Americans, I have often not gotten enough exercise. But seeing exercise as medicine has changed my perspective and led to more consistent habits. 

There are now reams of peer-reviewed research showing exercise is more effective than any drug at preventing everything from coronary heart disease to pre-diabetes to stroke.

The key for exercise is consistency and low-impact training. Getting your heart rate up to a moderate level for more than 150 minutes per week is generally all it takes to achieve equal (or better) disease-reversing impacts as drugs. 

With all these disease-fighting benefits, doctors can prescribe exercise - unlocking tax-free FSA/HSA spending. This insight led me to start TrueMed. We'll have more information soon on how qualified patients can seamlessly purchase exercise equipment tax-free. 



I am writing a book and starting a company to put food and lifestyle habits (not band-aids like pills and surgical interventions) at the center of how we think about healthcare. 

During this journey, I have been exposed to research, people, companies, and ideas that have changed my life and how I think about the health and development of my new son. This newsletter shares one of these insights each morning.
