Interview with David Katz

How did your interest in lifestyle medicine begin?
With my own lifestyle, and my own health. We’ve all got skin in this game! But my interest really took off during my medical residency, when i could see the consequences of neglecting lifestyle, and relying on modern medicine to fix the mayhem after the fact.

What kinds of chronic diseases are preventable through lifestyle as medicine?
All of the major scourges of modern societies and mostly preventable: heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, dementia and so on.

What is one of the most common misconceptions people have about health?
That it is a moral imperative; that it’s something you ‘should’ strive for to be virtuous. No, that’s not it ar all. Rather, healthy people have more fun! That, simply, is why everyone ought to care about it.

Can you give 3 tips for living a healthier lifestyle?
Eat wholesome foods, mostly plants, in sensible combination. Be active daily. Never hold a cigarette!

What kinds of clients have you worked with in the past?
If you mean patients, anyone who came to see me. If you mean audiences, they have ranged from university professors and physicians, to kindergartners.

How much does humor factor into your keynotes and other speaking engagements?
Hmmm…Is this question a Joke?
