Quotes

"Eating fat does not make you fat," Dr. Osborn stated. "Carbohydrates, on the other hand, drive insulin levels up. Insulin is an inflammatory hormone. And while we do need it to repair ourselves and to build muscle, it has very very sinister effects and deleterious effects on our health."
...I advised them on diet and lifestyle changes, and time and time again I saw patients " fatigue disappear, pain resolve, moods stabilise, blood pressure and blood sugars normalise, and the need for medications slowly decline, often until the patient needed no medications at all. The protocol that saved me became a part of my professional life, so it could save others."
...Mr Shaw, best seller author of "Creating A Bug Free Mind" and self-confessed millionaire divulged in a recent meeting ... "within you there is your subconscious mind and it is really the magical part within. Nevertheless, it is only magical due when we fully comprehend how it works. When we comprehend a little about it then we can use it and use its powers on demand and merely "end up being smarter.""
"I normally wake up about 3:00 or 4:00 in the evening, I'll get an energy drink first thing" said Brady
