In today’s show, Dr. Dave helps you find out if you are “normal.” Listen closely to find out!
Dr. Dave is preparing to leave for San Francisco. He is very excited to participate in the Bay 2 Breakers 12k race. In (belated) celebration of Dr Dave’s 60th birthday, he is going on a three day backpacking trip. His group, including his wife Yoko and three other friends, is taking the Skyline to the Sea Trail which begins in the mountains of San Jose, CA and winds 35 miles to the Pacific Ocean.

Are you normal?
In the United States…
- 1 out of every 3 people are clinically obese, not overweight but morbidly obese. That is approximately 80 million Americans.
- 7 out of 10 people take at least one prescription drug.
- If you are over 65, you take an average of 7 prescription medications.
- 1 out of every 10 or 10% of adults are depressed.
- 50% of Americans including children have more credit card debt than savings.
Do you want to be normal? Dr Dave tries very hard not to be normal.
Dr. Dave receives tons of messages and even phone calls from people telling him what to do with his podcast. They say things like “You should have a better background”, “Don’t reveal so much of your private life”, “Don’t drink smoothies when you are recording”, or “Don’t be controversial”. You know something? Dr. Dave believes these people just want to be normal. But he likes being who he is – which is out there, crazy, and weird. He feels fantastic just as he is! He does what he thinks and feels is right for him. He feels free to talk about the things that most would cringe about including anxiety, divorce, and depression. He talk about these things because not only does he have nothing to hide but he feels that sharing his experiences may also help his listeners. Life can sometimes be very tough and Dr. Dave wants everyone to know that no one’s life is perfect (Dr. Dave shared an anecdote about a recent experience).
If you are normal in the US, then you most likely are affected by one of the conditions mentioned above. It’s possible that someone could smoke their entire life without any issues but if you are playing the odds then most likely you will see the effects of long term smoking.
Dr Dave’s Suggestions for Being Abnormal
Dr. Dave is a huge believer in exercise! The best exercise is walking. He suggests that you make an effort to walk at least 4 miles per day. You do not need a gym. There are many exercises that you can do at home such as pull-ups, crunches, push-ups.
Dr Dave also eats very well. He eats a whole food plant-based diet with very none to very little sugar, salt, and oils.
Choose happiness! If you are in a situation in which you are unhappy, whether it be a job or a relationship, you have got to find a way to make it better. If you don’t, months or years will go by and it will be eating you up inside. It may not be easy, but it can be done.
Are these brand new suggestions? No, probably not but it is a lifestyle. You have to live it every day!
