What should you eat and what should you avoid?

The real truth about health, longevity and getting your ideal body


Take Selenium as an antioxidant and protect against muscle breakdown.
Take Zinc for male hormone and healthy functioning of your entire body.
Vitamin C is great for rebuilding and repairing.
Carbs are great for energy and muscles.
Carbs are bad as they make you fat.
Take good fats.
Don’t take bad fats.

Confusing, isn’t it?

Healthy & Balanced DietSo what is the answer? What should you take? What shouldn’t you take? How much of each? What if you are missing out on a nutrient? What if you are not?
How do you get that perfect, healthy body?

The real truth is that there are no correct answesr to all your questions. As you live your life and as we (the human race) live longer, we realize that we don’t know the answers and that every little thing on this planet does some good or bad. If we knew the answers there would be no diseases and everyone would look perfect.

To truly have the best shot at a healthy, vibrant body, you need to follow a simple rule and have 2 words as your guides: Healthy and Balanced.


Healthy means staying away from known bad foods and eating/drinking more of the good foods.
This means staying away or reducing the intake of:

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Saturated fats
  • Junk food: greasy burgers, chips, fast food
  • Artificial foods: chocolate, crisps, muffins, colas, cookies
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs

It also means taking in more:

  • Water
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables


This is the missing key and where you can truly make a difference to your health, well-being and body. Balanced means taking in a whole host of foods that grow here on earth and can do good for you. We may not yet know about the benefits of them or find out in your lifetime but they are here for a reason.

If you have a known allergy or intolerance, then you need to stay away from the offending foods. Otherwise you need to open up your mind and try a bit of everything. We are only just finding out about so many foods and their benefits and instead of trying to read every bit of new research, do yourself a favour and include a little bit of everything in your diet when you can.

Just look at some of the recent "good" foods in the news:

  • Pomegranate
  • Acai
  • Beetroot
  • Tofu
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Berries

Do you eat them regularly? Or at all? They have been around for generations.

Try a healthy and balanced diet every day to the best of your abilities and open your mind to new ingredients and foods that you would ordinarily not eat.
This means not seeing a salad as just greens but add things like nuts, seeds, berries and fruits.
Not seeing a meal as just meat and carbs but adding a whole variety of vegetables and even fruits to your meal.
Don’t just try one thing, really go for it! If you are going to try nuts & seeds, try Pistachios, Brazil nuts, sesame, sunflower seeds and so on.

There are no conclusive answers. What is conclusive is that following a healthy and balanced diet is your best shot at a long and vibrant life in your "very best" body. Start today.
