In the video above, he talks about how such conversations motivated him to improve his eating habits and begin exercising regularly and how heart-healthy choices can be fit into a busy schedule.

    Lia,

    It’s inspiring to see a medical professional realizing there’s a need to “practice what I preach.”

    The steps to better living outlined by Dr. Wang are fully correct. It’s the little changes that count.

    I’m glad to see he’s found a way to over come the sometimes banal feeling of regular cardio. Tennis is a great way to get the heart pumping.

    You wouldn’t trust a personal trainer who is out of shape so how can we really put all our trust in a doctor who is out of shape?
