The UN-Diet Diet is a health reclamation strategy. It is designed to give the participant simple and effective tools to aid in improving overall health, effectively deal with weight management issues, and to serve as a guide for empowered aging. The program is aimed at those over the age of 55 with existing health compromise. It examines the true genesis of both health and disease through the lens of our evolutionary footprint, drilling down to the essence of what it means to be alive. It is here within the principles which create and maintain life, that we also find the keys to health and longevity.
Read an Excerpt
We have been so conditioned to tie well-being to pills and/or altering our eating habits that we instinctively look for a medication or diet to solve our health problems hoping that directional change will miraculously offset years of accumulated insult and neglect. The truth of it is, the more we come face to face with life’s challenges but fail to resolve them, the easier it becomes to sidestep the warnings than it is to act, so we end up sliding deeper into that pit of denial or regret.
In purchasing a book called the Un-Diet Diet, I am assuming that this is likely not your first rodeo; you have already come face to face with the pressure to change, felt the pain, made what you thought were the right moves but inevitably ending up back at the same place. After each bout, even though you feel further depleted and a little more discouraged, you keep looking for something better. As such, you plunge down the latest rabbit hole, only to find the frustration of repeating things you know don’t work… because you have done them before. At the end of the day, as a matter of course, you tend to slide back into old routines and habits only to emerge at a familiar crossroads going nowhere.
You want to scream, “What the hell am I doing, and why is it not working?”
Einstein supposedly said something like, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result.”
