Enhance Your Performance

June 1st, 2009 No comments

Main Idea:  You will achieve the best athletic performance on a simple diet of fruit and green leaves.

Rather than put some dry data here, I’m going to put myself on the line.  

I’m a runner, and I’m going to tell how I’ve done in some races lately.  Now, I’m 42 years old and I’m recovering from Lyme Disease.  A year ago I could hardly run at all.  It took three years to find out what was wrong.

For an inspiring example of what can be done physically on a fruit based diet, see Tim Van Orden and his Running Raw Project.  He races almost every weekend and posts all his Race Results.

I’ll probably never be as fast as Tim, but I am getting stronger.  Here are my race results below.  If I have access to the results, I’ll link to them.
