Wellness advice and support

Friday, March 17, 2017

So many of us have tried to change our eating habits with very little long-term success. Often the results from “diets” are not permanent. It’s frustrating and defeating, and often causes people to think that this whole eating-healthy thing isn’t worth it because it doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great diets out there that will give you immediate results, but the problem is maintaining those results. We all know someone who has lost 40 pounds, only to gain 80 back. And the reasons are usually the same – the diet doesn’t ease you into huge changes nor does it teach you how to eat healthy to maintain your results.

Do you see solitude and relationships as compatible or mutually exclusive concepts? Over the years, I’ve known a number of people whose partnerships broke up due to disagreements, death, or entanglements with others. Some immediately sought another connection. By immediately, I mean in the next week, if not the next day. Those were people who just could not imagine life without a partner, and “needed” someone there for their emotional (and perhaps social or financial) support. Those connections had a faulty basis: If need is why you seek a person, you set yourself up for dependence – which in turn, fosters resentment sooner or later. Those negative feelings may come from the one who is needy, recognizing that there is that kind of need, or it may come from the one who is providing the support, who then feels the burden.

For the most part, I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I exercise 30 minutes four to five days a week and I eat more vegetables at breakfast than most people do all day. I don’t mind eating the same things every day. My breakfasts and lunches are standard and I add some variety at dinner. While I try to limit my sweets I am not very successful. I can plow through a box of Oreos and Reese’s are my kryptonite.

Dear Dr. Eva,

What do you think about homeopathy? I know people who swear by it, but I have also heard that homeopathic medicines are just expensive water.
