wants to achieve personal breakthroughs and find a blueprint
for moving toward a happier, healthier, more satisfying life?
You: Are you truly
happy with your life?
No sugar coating it. Be honest.
Is your body thriving
free? Do you rarely get sick and have plenty of
energy to do the things you want?
Do you wake up giddy
each day because you get to work on projects that move your
closer to your goals and the life you want to live?
Are you fairly steady in all areas of your
life, or are you thriving in some areas and drowning in others?
Do you find yourself entering periods of depression or malaise
that you just can't seem to get out of?
When you take a step back and assess, does this
year, or this decade, seem more satisfying than your last one? In other
words, over the long haul, is your life getting better?
Seriously. Take a moment now to ponder it deeply...
ANSWER: If you've said "no" to
any of these questions, then it's
safe to say that you are NOT living the life that you truly want and
You could be in a much better place right now, but something seems to
be holding you down,
...maybe some road block is making your look at the possibilities of
say "no", as if all hope is lost,
...Or perhaps you've become disconnected from your dreams and desires,
practically giving up somewhere along the way?
Or...is it possible...that, like most people...
You Have No Clue What You Need to Do to Pull
Yourself Out Of Your Rut
...and are pursuing raw foods in search of answers to your health
problems, your mental or emotional hangups, or because of a vague sense
that you're not all you could be?
The Truth Is This: A
you're looking for.
Raw foods are amazing - They've helped me overcome colitis, lose
weight, and given me more
energy and mental clarity than I ever dreamed was possible.
Yet I never would have been able to get out of my rut and
start thriving without going beyond diet and changing how I think and
organize my life.
Of course, what I'm talking about is the Raw Food Lifestyle
Lifestyle Ebook is about intelligently designing your reality for
It's about grabbing hold of the reigns of your life instead of merely
experiencing whatever gets thrown your way.
It's time to wake up and start charting a course toward what you want.
In 2002 I was miserable. I was borderline obese
at 220 pounds, suffered from regular bouts of
depression, and couldn't muster enough energy to care about myself.
Besides all this, I was pretty much convinced I was worthless and would never amount to
anything, which pretty much took away my incentive to try
I had spent my youth in special education classes, where I was
convinced that I was mentally inferior to everyone else. Looking around
me, it seemed liked all areas of my life were dismal, and I saw little
reason to believe things would improve.
Today I'm trim and healthy, I'm a successful
journalist, I recently ran a
marathon, and my life seems to keep getting better.
More importantly, I'm excited to be
alive, and look forward to the future every day.
So What changed?
After years of research, things really started to take off for me when
I realized I was such a mess because I'd
utterly failed to address my human needs.
Sure, I wasn't starving to death and I had a place to live, but that's
pretty much where things ground to a halt.
My social life was a nonexistent,
food possible, and my mind
was running rampant down the most negative of paths.
So let me ask you:
What do a man on the verge of suicide, a woman who is getting but not
really thriving, and someone who is so happy and impassioned that he
can barely contain himself have in common?
Whether they're aware of it or not, all of these people, and everyone
else, is sitting at various points
on the same spectrum of human development.
Outside the fleeting differences in their physical realities, the only things that set them apart is how
well they're meeting their own needs.
You may have heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and wonder how
meeting his suggestions could possibly tie into the raw food lifestyle.
Maslow's pyramid is a great start, but when the psychologist was
writing in the 1950s he lacked the
wealth of science that has emerged in the interim.
He lacked, for instance, a simple but key
depending on what we concentrate on.
He knew nothing of our need of a diet composed of whole, ripe, raw fruits and vegetables,
in his pyramid does he
mention the power belief has over our life, and the tremendous amount
good exercise does for us.
The Truth Is that
each need is like a pillar supporting the platform we live on. A
few short or unstable pillars won't damage us too much, but let enough fall into ruin and your life
will come tumbling down, as mine did.
In The Raw Food Lifestyle I
review our many human needs - some you've likely never even considered
- and explain
how you can start addressing them one by one.

matter how wealthy, good looking, and outwardly successful you may
seem, if you haven't learned to control your mind you're at the mercy
of outside forces.
You're unlikely to find long term success on a raw food diet without
changing the way you view the world, which comes down to belief.
So tell me: Are you
responsible for everything that happens to you, good or bad?
Most people will quickly say no, but I've dramatically improved my life
by changing that answer to yes.
Stop and ask yourself:
Where do your beliefs come from?
You've got a host of lenses (beliefs) in front of your eyes that color your perception of reality.
You likely didn't put most of them in place yourself, but had them
placed there by your parents, society, your religion, or numerous other
Beneficial or not, these lenses have a tremendous amount of power over
your life. In The Raw Food Lifestyle I tell you about some of my own
successful experiments with changing my lenses, and the benefits
brought to my life.

Although its cliched, your body really is the temple you live in, and how well
you look after it will determine the quality of your life for decades
to come. Yet when it comes to our bodies the world is a morass of contradictions.

is good, but it should be done in sterile, boring environments like
monotonous oval tracks and on weight machines. Fruits and vegetables
are the best foods, but god forbid we eat "too many of them".

it comes to our physical existence.
