Every person is on a specific spiritual and physical situation at any time, and that situation usually is not static, either it improves or recedes. Most people want to be healthier both spiritually and physically, but the necessary changes to achieve this seem like a burden, or just not worth the effort. Don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of this all the time. I know I could make a few changes in my life and I would see the improvement, but maybe I wasn't ready for it yet.

Now, here is the secret. If you really desire the improvement, be willing to make the change. Things won't get better unless we make the sacrifice, unless we go forward and make the painful change.

If you want to be more alive, you need to eat foods that are alive. You can't be healthier by taking this and this other drug, and stay on your same diet plan, or no plan at all. Get rid of things that will make you toxic, and introduce things that are full of life, full of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, etc.

If you put toxins in your body, it doesn't matter if it is by way of eating toxins, or putting them in your skin, or breathing them, you will get sick. If you don't get the necessary nutrients in your body, in a way that your body can assimilate those nutrients, you will get sick, plus your body won't have the raw materials it needs to heal itself.

It's simple, make the change you need to make, and you'll see the improvement. Get away from the comfortable zone, get away from the mainstream way of thinking and acting, and you'll see the results. Awake to the awful situation in which you are at, and then you will be able to see why it is necessary to change. God bless!

Temptations, temptations, temptations... Visiting Spain, my home country, has made me realize or remember how difficult it is to overcome temptations. Food culture in Spain is huge, and the 500 years old recipes that are still standing are hard to avoid. Perfectly baked breads, treats, and dishes make you salivate the moment you look at them or even just smell them. The question is, how can we overcome temptation?

The answer: commitment, and also, remember, remember, and remember. Remember why you eat what you eat, or why you should eat what you are not eating right now. We have to remember that health is the reason to eat, and health is the reason to avoid those temptations. This, although, is easy to remember when your belly is full, but when you let yourself fast for a few hours, those important reasons you had to avoid bad foods are not as important anymore. We have to commit! If you want to improve your health, your diet, and your life, there is no other way but to increase the amount of fruits you eat, and decrease any other thing. But we have to truly satisfy our bellies with fruit, it doesn't work if we eat a couple pieces at a time.

I usually recommend three full meals a day, and two snacks in between, all of them fruit, except the second snack (nuts or dried fruits), and dinner (salads and other raw greens).

For breakfast, eat in abundance! Abundance means for example, the juice of 15 oranges, or 8 apples, or 10 peaches, or a big bowl of strawberries and blueberries.

Then a snack, a carrot, or a couple pears or kiwis...

Then lunch, a watermelon, a couple cantaloupe melons, 10 bananas...

Then another snack, handful of almonds, or chestnuts, or hazelnuts, or dried figs, or dates...

Then dinner, a great big salad with all kind of greens, and tomatoes, chorella and/or spirulina tablets, peppers, cauliflower, etc.

Do this for a couple of weeks, and you won't need me to explain anything to you anymore, because you will experience health, life, and your body will be your witness of what health really means...

Increase juices and smoothies...

Be positive about life...

Help others in the process...

Experience, as they say in Costa Rica, PURE LIFE, PURA VIDA!!

Many people ask me what the perfect diet is. I mean, really? Is there a "perfect" diet? First of all, you have to tell me what you want the diet to do to you, because, you see, many people come up to me just because they want to lose weight. There are many different amazingly effective diets out there to lose weight. However, are they healthy at all? Is your body in a better situation if you lost some weight, but you became really acidic, or I should say, in the process of preventing to get acidic, your body used resources that made you sick, and now you have to suffer from it? (aka, osteoporosis from a high processed protein diet)

So, after studying many, many different types of diet, I have to conclude, there are several approaches a person can take towards food, and be absolutely healthy and vibrant. It doesn't matter what you are eating right now, you can always improve! Diet is about improving your life, is about evolving and applying what you learn from food into your life. See, getting to know something and applying what you have learned are two different things. If you want to improve your health, just go ahead, learn something, and apply it into your life!

I direct people towards a better goal, towards a better diet than the one they have now. Sometimes I even make very little changes into people's diet and they tell me it is too hard. Health is about commitment. Health is about really wanting to sacrifice your immediate cravings for a better life. Health is about knowledge and wisdom.

Anyways, enough with the talk. The perfect diet? Well, I haven't figure it out yet, however, I can give you a few recommendations.

-My very first recommendation is Dr. Robert Cassar's way of eating/living. He is an outstanding, wise nutritionist (he is really a toxicologist, but knows more about nutrition than anybody I know of). His diet consists of a high intake of liquids that are full of nutrients, and about one meal per day, with a few snacks. This is his website, with superfoods that he sells, and videos that he shares:


-My second is the 80/10/10 diet. This consists of high amounts of fruits, with some greens, nuts, and seeds. Low fat, low protein, high good quality carbohydrates. This diet is full of enzyme rich foods, gives you tons of energy, helps you lose a lot of weight, and keeps your immune system at its highest. I recommend reading the book on sale now:
