Craig: Positive Kevin. Nicely, initially, I began out within the health trade as a private coach making $3.50 an hour.

Kevin: Wow.

Craig: So I have been in it for awhile and I grew by way of the ranks within the health trade to the chief stage. I used to be the president of two of the biggest health organizations in america. I used to be the Government Vice President of Gross sales and Advertising for the biggest chain of health golf equipment on this planet working in 11 nations. I additionally efficiently owned and operated my very own health firm. I’ve visited 30 nations and evaluated well being and health traits throughout Russia, Asia, Europe. I have been to dozens of health conventions, bought thousands and thousands of {dollars} price of apparatus, dietary supplements and different well being and health associated merchandise and I’ve additionally had the power to coach hundreds of well being and health professionals around the globe and assist them to assist different individuals enhance their lives. So this actually sort of led me to the place I’m as we speak, which is to the place I simply obtained to the purpose the place I need to do one thing extra and that is why I wrote my e book The Big Fat Healthy Fitness Lie and based the Match Advocate web site in order that I may create a platform to guard and improve the lives and well being and health shoppers.

Kevin: Now you simply talked about your e book, The Big Fat Health and Fitness Lie which I completely love. What is the massive fats health lie. Let’s simply lay it on the desk.

Craig: Why mince phrases? Let’s dig proper in. The lie is that there are these billion greenback industries on the market getting richer whereas we get sicker and fatter and with all of the so-called options accessible for shedding weight and bettering our well being, we are actually within the worse form within the historical past of recent civilization. There’s large revenue in illness and in fatness, and a whole lot of instances individuals query that they usually assume, “Oh, well we live in the United States, we’re in great health and we have the best health care system” which is a whole fallacy. This is an attention-grabbing reality that individuals ought to concentrate on, we’re approaching some 300 million individuals within the U.S. and now we have yearly 200 million ailments which are recognized for situations that might be prevented with easy life-style modifications.

Kevin: Wow.

Craig: And we spend in america, 270 billion {dollars} on 3.7 billion prescriptions written to, to not remedy something as a result of there’s actually only a few cures in trendy medication, medication is supposed principally to masks our signs. So taking into our our bodies a whole lot of poisonous chemical compounds and you already know there’s a lot confusion on the market and misinformation about well being and health. So there’s an enormous alternative, sadly, for individuals to make large cash on the lack of information that individuals have about drop some weight, enhance their well being, get in form and reside higher. So thousands and thousands of persons are on the market paying hundreds of {dollars} that haven’t any likelihood of serving to them obtain their aim and that is actually the massive fats lie.

Kevin: And let me simply ask you this, you’ve got been on the opposite aspect, you’ve got been part of the trade that’s making some huge cash within the health golf equipment and the organizations and all the pieces. When did you immediately say, “Hey, you know, maybe I need to educate people about this.”

Craig: Nicely, initially I by no means felt that the membership trade was a nasty trade.

Kevin: Okay.

Craig: And in my e book I nonetheless am a giant proponent of becoming a member of a health middle for the typical particular person, there are, in fact, some caveat of get a high quality membership. I’ve an article on the ten worst tips for the health trade. So I attempt to expose the issues that I believe are dangerous however there’s additionally a whole lot of good too, however what I did discover whereas I used to be working all of those golf equipment and attempting to assist individuals is that I might speak to hundreds of shoppers, head to head. For a giant a part of my profession, my job was to get on the market and assist, work with individuals within the subject, membership operators, managers, gross sales individuals, health workers members, private trainers, to speak to them about assist individuals make selections which are good for them and the tenet, in fact was at all times do not give attention to making a living, give attention to serving to individuals and you’ll generate income as a pure outcome, as a pure bi-produce of serving to individuals. That is at all times been considered one of my guiding rules, however in talking with all these shoppers, you discover that the typical particular person spends hundreds and hundreds of {dollars} on services and products that haven’t any likelihood of serving to them. They spend hours and hours of wasted time on info that can by no means assist them enhance their well being or change their lives. So I obtained drained, annoyed and actually sort of outraged at the entire fast repair options which are on the market that individuals bounce from one to the opposite and with out actually understanding the true reason for why they’re in such poor well being. So I needed to attempt to educate them on the entire issues, the lies the deceptions whereas additionally attempting to provide them easy options for enhance their well being, drop some weight, get in form, reside higher, really feel higher with no tips and no gimmicks for the remainder of their lives. That is actually what the massive fats well being and health lie is all about and that is actually what the Match Advocate web site is all about.

Kevin: And you’re taking a unique method in your e book versus a whole lot of the opposite books that I’ve examine well being and health and it is associated to habit. You say habit feeds this entire lie. What do you imply by this?

Craig: Nicely, many individuals reside a self-inflicted poisonous life-style that destroys their well being and feeds this lie. So what do I imply by that? Nicely, the definition of poisonous, initially, is poison and in our society we’re surrounded by poisons, in our air, it is in our water, a few of them we will not keep away from and plenty of of them we are able to, nevertheless. Loads of these poisons, they are not going to kill us as we speak, however as an alternative what they do is that they slowly and quietly deteriorate and destroy our well being.

There’s two particular varieties of poisons or toxins that I speak about that create these well being issues. The first, in fact is chemical exposures. There are hundreds of untested chemical mixtures in our meals provide to enhance style, texture, shade or to increase shelf life. There are low calorie, low carb meals laced with poisonous sweeteners that has contributed to weight problems and diabetes. We have been conditioned to consider that sodium fluoride, for instance is nice for our tooth. But it is a identified chemical waste bi-product of the aluminum and phosphate fertilizer trade. This chemical has been pumped into our water provide and put into our dental hygiene merchandise for years however fluoridation has been flatly rejected by many developed nations due to the risks and the dearth of actually any scientific proof of any well being profit. Past that, now we have poisonous chemical compounds in our family merchandise, our cleansing merchandise, private hygiene merchandise. Fruit and veggies have been handled with herbicides and pesticides. Chickens and cows are fed floor hen and beef. Then pumped stuffed with antibiotics to stave off illness from the horrific situations during which they reside and the place they’re slaughtered. So now we have all of these, you already know, all of this chemical toxicity. That is the primary concern.

The second is the largest poisonous publicity which is said to emphasize, and folks do not understand this however as a lot as 80% of all illness is the results of stress and having had the power to journey all around the world and go to, you already know, I consider I have been to over 40 nations now, you discover that we in America are essentially the most stressed nation on the planet. We work greater than some other exercise aside from sleep. Simply take into consideration our regular lives, we get up every single day and we’re working on empty from morning to nighttime. We have got the pressures at work, at dwelling, the challenges sustaining some kind of glad relationship with our vital others. We have got the calls for of the youngsters, attempting to pay the payments. Now we have the entire negativity within the information. We’re all attempting to reside the American dream which relies on monetary freedom, however the reality is barely a fraction of individuals on the market really ever notice the American dream and the remainder of us are merely attempting to get by, and, you already know, we’re buried in a mountain of debt. All of these items add as much as a whole lot of fear and stress and to deal with this stress, what can we do? We drink, we smoke, we take medicine, we over eat, we eat the incorrect meals and we spend hours in entrance of the tv or browsing the web. All of those actions, sadly make us fats, lazy and out of practice, and what occurs is that this poor well being that is created from this self addictive life-style creates, and opens the door for these large fats well being and health lies. One in all them is corporations that market, manufacture and market and sale merchandise that haven’t any likelihood of serving to us after which, in fact, the more serious factor is once we look to artificial chemical compounds, prescribed drugs, as the primary line of protection to deal with our self inflicted well being issues. So we actually have a whole lot of points that now we have to take care of so as to be wholesome, however individuals want to know the premise of the place it begins, the trigger.

Kevin: Sure. How does somebody take that kind of habit or quote unquote addictive persona and switch that into health success?

Craig: Nicely the very first thing they need to do is establish it.

Kevin: Sure.

Craig: You must notice it. This is, this is a indisputable fact that’s fairly necessary that individuals ought to find out about, the primary cause that individuals give for not exercising frequently is that they do not have sufficient time, okay. But the typical American watches 4 and a half hours of tv a day. So there’s a problem there with precedence and folks have to know that point is crucial and essentially the most beneficial factor that now we have as a result of as soon as it is gone you’ll be able to’t get it again. If you wish to enhance your well being, it’s a must to make time to do the entire issues which are essential to enhance and improve your well being and your life and it isn’t simply train nevertheless it is without doubt one of the key elements. So that they need to first perceive the problems after which have the proper motivation and set the proper priorities to get them to the place they should be.
