Glowing Skin - You Manifest What You Eat Mark Eisenhart Blows Us Away
Lately I have been knocking my head trying to figure out a way to illustrate for people beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a direct link between what you eat and the health of your skin and body.
How to explain that the diseases that plague North Americans is brought on by the choices we make? In spite of the latest groundbreaking research that suggests what my grandfather Bernando LaPallo has been living all his 110 years that diet do in fact trump genetics, I encounter doubts often. But think about it. Say you have two children that are born on the same day to the same parents but one is fed a diet of processed foods, soft drinks and medications and the other is fed a nutrient rich diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Who do you think is going to be healthier?
Well that poor kid who is eating the processed diet is the average American today young or old.
In fact, American children are getting 40% of their calories from fats and sugars in the form of soda consumption and fried foods. Still don't believe that diet makes a profound difference? Then please meet my poster boy for those two Americans I was just talking about. Meet Mark Eisenhart!
Meet Mark Eisenhart - Before and After Nutrient Rich Foods
These two photos are of the same man! His name is Mark Eisenhart. Based out of Oregon he is a vegan athlete, motivational speaker and what he is mostly is healthy! 215 pounds lighter just look at his skin. The photo of Mark on the left displays a washed out, pasty epidermis. Marks photo on the right shows the vitality evident in his glowing complexion. Not to mention his physique!
How did he do it?
Mark switched gradually to a plant based diet transitioning the refined sugars and flours out. He did this over the course of one year. Little by little he cut out red meats and today lives on a completely vegan diet. In 2009 he reached his bottom peaking out at 455 pounds. Drinking, smoking and taking prescription drugs to deal with twenty different diseases brought on by his obesity and other lifestyle choices he knew it was now or never. Mark was sinking fast. In a turnaround which came down to a decision to choose life over death, Mark began meditating everyday asking himself why he was sabotaging his life while introducing plant based nutrient rich foods into his meals. He credits this quiet time with himself along with eating fresh fruits and vegetables for his flourishing health. While a completely vegan lifestyle might not be for everyone, the take away here is the good stuff Mark added to his diet made it possible for him to let go of the not so good stuff. For those who say it's ALL genetics Mark Eisenhart has just called your bluff!
Remember Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, keep your colon clean and keep a positive attitude. You will see and feel the difference in your life.
