More on Jack

 

My colleague and blog friend,   The Hospitalist   expanded better than I ever could about Jack Lalanne in his blog on Monday.  It’s worth reading.

He was the original ‘health nut’. But he was ‘bolted’ down. He exemplifies the fact that we all die, but the journey to it can be a gradual slope of declining health, unhappiness, disability or a good quality of life until one goes over the cliff  suddenly.

Jack,   the original ‘Juicer"’ did not need MLM,Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr,MySpace, or coupons from Groupon to spread his ideas

So really, disciplined eating habits, exercise, avoidance of unhealthy stress counts more than blockbuster drugs and high tech enhanced hospitals. Accountable care organizations will do little for your longevity, politicians, not withstanding.

If Jack Lalanne could do all that in the 1950s and 60s, imagine what he would have done now…..that is if he did not spend his time surfing and blogging, twittering and face booking all day.

How about an internet enable set of barbells, or workout machine?I know someone out there has an iPad accessory to attach the iPad to my treadmill.

Jack had this saying,

“YOUR HEALTH ACCOUNT IS YOUR WEALTH ACCOUNT!
LONG LIVE LIVING LONG!”

WATCH JACK

Long before  HSAs !
