I eat what ever I like whenever I like, However much I want.
But because of how I regulate my posture, movement and breathing, my main food and all I really like to eat is fruit, salad and vegetables.
I don’t usually dehydrate my salad but these photos show what I did once. I took as much salad as I eat in one big salad meal (top photo), pretty much my main and only food I eat most days, and dehydrated it for 2 days at 37 degrees celsius. After two days of the removing the water the amount of salad left (bottom photo) was the same size as about one piece of bread (notice the sizes of the same blue reference cup in both photos). One great thing is that, of the solid portion of the salad (all that was left after 2 days dehydration), about 3-8% is fat, with a significant level of healthy and fresh omega 3 fatty acids, which is an excellent brain food. Additionally, at least 90% of the solid portion of the salad is healthy fibre, which is great for the bowels. Plus the fresh salad itself (not dehydrated) is about 95% water.
I am about to give my annual seminar in Sydney and I would love you join me – “The ‘Eat what ever you like, as much as you like, and be healthy’ Diet ” – Saturday 19 May, 2018 12.30 – 3.30pm.
In this seminar I will explain in simple terms:
*** How what you eat directly affects how you breathe
*** That learning how to comfortably breathe less than normal (pranayama) eventually allows you to comfortably eat less than normal
*** That the only diet that has been scientifically proven to increase lifespan is the ‘calorie reduction’ or the ‘eat less’ diet
*** That eating less can mean eating less volume of food or less concentration of food
*** Eating less is only viable if it is completely without negative physical or emotional side effects, and how to achieve this with unique but simple to learn techniques of posture movement and breathing
*** How balancing your diet with correct breathing can improve circulation, increase mobility, increase energy, help calm your nerves, reduce asthma, reduce arthritis, improve your concentration and help you think more clearly
*** The dangers of eating many common foods and the benefits of eating many relatively unknown foods along with some forgotten methods of food preparation
*** That by making your diet more alkaline (e.g. by eating more fruit and vegetables) you can improve your breathing (i.e. comfortably learn how breathe less, like an experienced athlete) and exercise, relax and meditate more easily
This special seminar is actually a public part of my ten day course on the applied anatomy and physiology of yoga that you can read about more at www.yogasynergy.com

If you are in Europe, am also presenting this seminar as part of the workshop I am teaching at YogaRise Peckham, in London, on the weekend of the 10 – 12 August 2018. Please see
Here are some of my health eating tips
*** First drink enough healthy liquids to satiate your appetite before resorting to solid food to satiate your appetite.
*** Wait till you are hungry before you eat your breakfast, even if your breakfast is at 6 pm at night.
*** Make your diet includes enough fibre to ensure at least one good daily bowel movement.
*** Include ‘superfoods’ in your diet such as organic wheatgrass, algae, goji berries, and acai berries
*** Include some seaweed in your diet for its high iodine levels that can counter radiation.
*** Breathe mostly into your abdomen and move your spine in everyday life and when you exercise, in order to enhance the digestion and absorption of food.
*** Eat less calories in order to live longer.
*** Breathe less in order to be happy to eat less.
*** Keep foods simple and limit yourself to only one or two steps to make a meal.
*** Make a fresh raw sauce of blended avocado, tomato, herbs and rock salt to pour over steamed vegetables.
*** Soak then sprout nuts, seeds, pulses and grains in order to enhance their digestibility and actually increase the nutrients available from them.
*** Include some healthy fermented foods in your such as sauerkraut, kim chi, kefir and tempeh.
*** Avoid all processed foods or at least avoid foods you know are not good for you.
*** Eat some fresh ripe (and ideal local and organic) fruit every day as it is filled with health giving vitamins, minerals and enzymes, as well as good fibre for your bowels to keep moving.
*** Bring salad out of the fridge some time before eating it and in winter even let your salad sit in warm to hot water for a few minutes in order to bring the food to your body temperature so that it can be more easily digested and does not make you cold.
*** Drink a fresh vegetable juice every day as it is loaded with health giving nutrients and it is very hydrating.
*** Make your own fresh nut milk (almonds are great) to use for coffee, tea or cereal by soaking nuts overnight in water then, rinse them, add some fresh water, blend with a hand blender and strain out the milk.
*** Use stevia as a sweeter over any processed sweeteners such as sugar, and never use aspartame.
*** Make green smoothies with fresh assorted green leafy vegetables to easily energise you and make you feel younger.
What you will learn in my seminar
This 3 hour seminar literally turns upside down many common myths and misconceptions about nutrition, diet and exercise.
I will explain the yogic art of how to be content to eat less than normal, and how to reduce your craving for all the heavy and ‘naughty’ foods, while enhancing health and longevity.
I highly recommend this seminar for all yoga teachers and practitioners, and anyone interested in living a longer and healthier life.
