Me, I’d rather have quality over quantity – I’d rather live to be 60 and have a full healthy life than to 100 and spend most of it in care – however it’s not either / or, I believe you can have both. The healthy decisions I make now are largely driven by my desire to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible, for an optimal long healthy + happy life :) Why not….

I do know as times being health can feel like an effort a cost etc., however I also know that our body and good health is worth it and priceless! We, You and me are worth it. And it’s only a week and my energy is up, the blobby fat around my middle is falling away and brain is clearing out of it’s foggy existence, and I am ready to roar.
Some of this information as it’s all quite new, and rocks the status quo a little in that as it’s based on a healthier diets which big pharma doesn’t For those interested, Tom O’Bryan is hosting a series of interviews of medical experts discussing all of this in the Betrayal Series click here, sign up it’s free and starts today.
