For more than a decade, Dr. Tim Rifai, Henry Ford Health System Director of Metabolic Health and Weight Management, has been helping patients learn how to achieve optimal health and overcome a variety of chronic diseases. He notes that there are five keys, or lifestyle pillars that are the foundation of good health. He explains the importance of nutrition and physical activity which his is quick to note, he doesn't refer to as diet and exercise; mind matters, environment and accountability are the remaining pillars. He discusses the role willpower plays in the quest to live a healthier life, as well as how depression or anxiety might make it difficult to apply healthy eating or physical activity principles.
