From my experience on working with thousands of people, from all walks of life and all over the world, it can take six months to two years to fully heal the human body. I fully respect and work with this natural human process.
My advice is not a quick fix, it is not about wonder pills (as they do not exist), it is not about super-quick weight-loss scams, it is not about protein shakes, and it is not about drugs or miracle-promising superfoods.
Focus and work hard
If you wanted to become a world-class athlete you would train for a year, not six weeks. Why? It takes time to make significant health gains, change habits, heal your illness, rebuild your body and change habits for good. My advice is about re-learning how to eat and live a healthy lifestyle. It is unique, personal and powerful and will take you on a journey like no other. It is like having someone walking beside you for a year helping you change and transform lifelong habits – quite possibly helping you to add years to your life in the process.
I cut through all the sales and marketing hype about nutrition that constantly come at you from the modern world. I get right to the heart of what you need to do in this fast-paced life to achieve sustainable, long-term health and vitality. I take you right back to the core basics of diet, lifestyle, environment, behaviour change and exercise. I am purely about how to completely transform your health, weight and vitality by modifying what you eat and how you manage your lifestyle. Teaching you these things in a way that you can incorporate them into your life takes time: weeks, months. It cannot be learned overnight. My articles are designed to give you bite sized chunks of information and inspiration.
Start with the gut
My philosophy is to start with the gut, get this working well (via fasting, removing the poisons and increasing/introducing good nutrition), then moving to sleep, rhythm, routine, good habits, changing behaviours and controlling your environment. This has developed and continues to evolve by following and learning from the oldest and healthiest peoples on earth. How do they live to become healthy drug-free and disease-free centenarians and what can they teach us?
My advice is about replacing modern toxic foods with healthier, natural, quality foods; without sacrificing taste. I focus on a wholefood, plant-based diet, inclusive of the very best foods from all over the world. This, for most people, is a lifestyle change. Think of it like changing jobs, where you learn different skills in new areas that literally change your experience of life. ‘Diet’ is from the word ‘diaita’ meaning ‘lifestyle’ and that is my focus – an enjoyable, tasty, varied, healthy lifestyle that encourages and supports longevity.
The internet has given us incredible wonders and amazement in so many areas and yet an overabundance of myths and rubbish pretending to be science in other areas. In the area of food, food research, food science, food recommendations, philosophy, ‘healthy foods’ vs ‘unhealthy foods’ and simply ‘what do I eat?’, it is a never ending sea of conflicting advice.
Remember; FOOD IS EMOTIONAL. Even talking about food and having an opinion on it opens you to criticism, judgement, opposition, politics, trolling, name calling and defensiveness. Make up your own mind and enjoy your food because human beings are messy!
