Barefoot running, a whole-food plant-based diet, Vibram Fivefingers – all of these things have made my life more enjoyable, healthier.. overall just better.
About 2 months ago I came across a “new to me” approach to health. Tavis Bradley had done a video on youtube with Dan “The LifeRegenerator” McDonald. It’s a lengthy video, but I watched the entire thing and was immediately intrigued.
A little background on myself – I’ve been on a vegan diet for about 3 1/2 years now, and I’ve experienced many benefits, as well as an overall feeling of more energy and better health. And I’m always on the lookout for the latest health trends, as fitness and diet are my main areas of interest. Basically, if it helps me win more matches on the tennis court, I’m interested.
Anyhow, I’m not going to attempt to explain Tavis Bradley’s Conductivity Diet in detail here. If you want to learn more about it, I highly recommend that you visit his website and youtube channel. In a nutshell, the diet consists of raw fruits and vegetables, healthy oils, nuts, seeds, and a series of 4 tonics that you drink every day to set your body up for optimal health. I’ve been following the “diet” for about 6 weeks now, and I feel really good. It’s tough to articulate exactly, but everything feels more – more energy, more alert, more running/less recovery time. My family thinks I’ve gone a little wacky, but they are used to that by now.
I eat as much food as I want. I’m not hungry, and I’ve lost most of my attraction to junk foods, although those Red Hot Blues Tortilla Chips from Whole Foods are hard to stay away from. It seems that the healthier I eat, the more my body wants healthy foods. Junk foods are not as appealing as they used to be. Very strange how this all happened over the course of a couple of months, but I’m really loving it.
I’ll be adding to this blog in the upcoming weeks. Please feel free to ask me any questions about this or any of my other blogs, as I am more than happy to discuss my favorite topics with anyone who wants to listen.
