In this great country of ours, there is much to enjoy.  It is a land of great diversity.  People from all over the world have brought their cultures here including many foods.  Americans tend to overindulge and it becomes essential to have enough exercise to stay healthy and fit.  In my office, I see many patients who want to lose weight, but their feet are preventing them from getting the necessary exercise.  Many foot conditions result from overusing them in unnatural conditions.   After all, we are not meant to be walking on hard surfaces.  Good, supportive shoes and in some cases custom or over the counter inserts are necessary to counter these conditions.  I recognize the importance of exercise and do not want to tell a patient to totally stop.   However, I will often advise temporarily decreasing the intensity of the activity.   I also suggest alternating the type of exercise from day to day.  It is ideal to perform exercises such as swimming or biking that  put less stress on the feet.  So please practice moderation in your diet and begin an exercise program that will allow your feet to hold up over time.
