Dr. Neil Skolnik knew something had to change when he found himself out of breath as he walked through Philadelphia International Airport on his way to give a lecture on—of all things—diabetes. Though he wasn't diabetic, he also wasn't in good shape.

What's more, the patients who hadn't truly heard his advice in the past really started to listen. Some have lost weight, and others have gained energy, reduced their high blood pressure and potentially staved off cardiac issues down the road. It's all about finding activities and foods that work for each individual, instead of trying the latest crash diet or fitness regimen.
