From social media influencers to great aunt Bess, everyone has an opinions about the best habits for a healthy lifestyle. But whether you’ve gone all-in on apple cider vinegar or think the latest health fads are all hype, the choices you make can have long-term health consequences.

Healthy lifestyle habits can slow or even reverse the damage from high cholesterol or high blood sugar. You can reverse diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol and heart disease by making simple everyday changes.

Making healthy change can take time. It can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. But if you are making the change to reverse a chronic health issue timing is not so long.
