Optimum health math is based on four simple elements.
Food, energy, health and wealth. Once you see the relationship, your energy levels, productivity, and bank accounts will skyrocket.
I use this simple equation for the foods I eat and the lifestyle I've adopted.
Dead food = dead energy.
What does this mean?
If the food is dead or cooked, you're not getting the best nutrition possible.
It doesn't necessarly mean that you stop eating everything cooked or eat raw meat, it means that you just accept the formula and with that knowledge you can create massive energy or just cruise along at medium altitude at what ever you do-just with the foods you eat.
The more raw, the better.
Many people interpret this as being a vegetarian or being a vegan. Sometimes just being a vegetarian isn't enough.
I've seen many that are a little tight around the waistline and wonder-if they're not eating meat, what's going on. . . they should be thin and healthy, right?
Well there're pasta-tarians, and bread-aholics and rice-a-ronis and a bunch more. Is being any of these bad? Nope. It just means you're not gearing yourself for maximum success. . .
Now let's look at another optimum health equation:
Optimum health = maximum wealth.
What you eat is directly related to the thickness of your wallet.
Because you're the one who's calling all the shots. If you're worn down, tired and eating foods that don't fuel your body for maximum results, you'll shoot off the mark.
The more your body is fueled with minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and superfoods the more you're able to create. Creation comes from a clear head, right?
So if you're stopped up, so is you ability to succeed massively.
So keep those equations in mind.
The best way to transition from where you are now to where you want to be is to add not subtract.
So instead of eliminating dead foods all together, add a bunch of live foods and eventually you'll lose the taste for some of the cooked stuff. This doesn't mean you have to become a complete raw foodist. . . just look at the math. 20% is better than 0%. 50% is better than 20%.
And if you keep adding, you WILL have boundless and intense energy-which is something most people don't want to give up.
