“You’re Okay, It’s Just a Bruise” chronicles my time as the team physician for the Raiders. When I saw the physical effects on football players, I decided to write a book to set the record straight about what was really happening to these professional athletes.

Follow along as, each Saturday, I share an excerpt from the book, which served as Oliver Stone’s inspiration for the movie “Any Given Sunday” starring Al Pacino. Order your copy from Amazon.

“This season has been tough. Trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions was grueling. Every other team came at us with both six-guns blazing. Teams felt it would make their season if they beat the Raiders, just one game. Fending off opponents that psyched-up, that possessed, week week after week required maintaining our health and intensity. Given the physical and mental battering of pro football, that was a tall order.”

People try and lose weight to get healthy, but they’ve got it inside out and backwards.

You need to lose fat, not “weight,” and you’ve got to get healthy, first, to lose fat.

Forget the old wives’ tale that food ingested late at night is somehow metabolized differently.

A calorie is a calorie regardless of the time of day it passes your lips.

If you’re hungry, a complex carb/lean protein snack three hours before bedtime is okay, but avoid late-night fat, caffeine, or carbonated drinks.

Painful inflammatory conditions respond better to movement than rest. The outdated “don’t exercise ‘til the pain is gone” advice not only delays healing, but also causes collateral damage to the body’s metabolism and psyche.

Diet sodas (and other foods that are artificially sweetened) may have zero calories, but the sweet taste still leads to a higher insulin spike in your bloodstream and may keep you craving real sweets.

In fact, switching from regular soda to artificially sweetened soda has never been shown to lead to weight loss!

Stop trying to lose weight to get healthy.

You’ve got it inside out and backwards––you need to lose fat, not “weight,” and you’ve got to get healthy in order to lose fat.
