Peek In My Medicine Cabinet for Fat Loss and Spectacular Health

Apr 27, 2008
If you look inside my medicine cabinet, you will see why Big Pharma might broke with too many guys like me around. The big pharmaceutical companies have to hate guys like me. Let me explain.

I had to check my medicine cabinet after my older sister recently sent me one of those emails about baby boomers getting older, and the stuff they supposedly are all taking as they age, or need to take. While I enjoyed the humor, I said to myself, I do not take any of these things. None. Was that true, I asked myself.

To see, I checked my medicine cabinet and the drawers in my bathroom. I was right. There was not one prescription medicine or anything like that, nothing.

I am not bragging; that is simply the truth. I take no prescription drugs. No blood pressure or cholesterol medicine. My medicine cabinet contains no drugs of any kind, prescription, over the counter, off the Net, anything.

No laxatives. No Joint Juice or other such creaky bone medicines, and I am of the age where supposedly people need these. Speaking of which, no Viagra or other erection pills. Again, I am not bragging but I have never had the slightest need for these products. I am old, yet I am lusty, as Shakespeare says in Richard III.

I do not even have aspirin. What do I have? Really boring stuff. Band-aids. Contact lens solution. A skin moisturizer. Dental floss. Toothpaste. Anti-bacterial ointment for cuts. Deodorant.

Like I say, boring stuff, but no medicines, prescription drugs or any other kind of drug or medicinal potions, not even headache remedies of any kind. I do not get headaches, and rarely have aches or pains.

As I write this in April, I sailed healthfully through the past flu season, which I read was a nasty one, without the flu and without a flu shot. I did not catch a cold this past cold season and I rarely do any time. I cannot remember the last time I was sick. But I know it was not for long.

I do remember the last time I went to the doctor. It was an emergency trip to the hospital for an appendectomy, more than 22 years ago.

If you ask to what do I attribute my spectacular health, the answer is easy: my balanced, plant-based diet of whole, fresh, natural foods and lots of great, fun outdoor exercise. My main beverage is pure, filtered water. I eat no junk food, fast food or any kind of refined food. Just whole, natural foods, nothing taken away, nothing added. Foods as grown.

I adhere to a strict code of conduct in the area of eating. Only premium fuels go into my body. And I love real food, nutrient-dense, delicious, colorful, natural foods.

Not only is my diet and exercise program great for fat loss and fitness, but for overall spectacular health. I honestly believe that the most important thing we do every day is what we eat and drink. And great outdoor exercise is just as important.

What I do not eat, drink or take is just as important to my program. I do not eat meat, fish, poultry, dairy products of any kind, or eggs. I do not eat fast food or processed, refined, packaged foods. I eat whole, natural foods, nothing added, nothing taken away.

I do not drink protein shakes or energy drinks. No coffee, caffeine drinks or alcohol. Those caffeine drinks, by the way, include all the phony energy drinks that are laced with caffeine. And on my list of beverages I never drink are sodas, including diet sodas, ice tea drinks, ice coffee drinks, and booster beverages like Ensure and Boost.

I do not take fat blaster pills of any kind, or vitamins or supplements. I believe it is important for those who do not eat animals or animal products to make sure they get adequate amounts of vitamin B-12. I get mine from eating nutritional yeast, which is different from brewers yeast. I have developed a fondness for nutritional yeast and enjoy it in a number of different dishes. Vitamin B-12 is also available in foods fortified with it and in supplement form.

I recently took a fitness test given by the American College of Sports Medicine and scored the highest possible score for 20 to 29-year-olds.

If you want what I have, whatever age you are, and I am 60, try following my example. I firmly believe you will like the results, for many spectacularly healthy reasons.
