Something strange happened to me a few weeks ago- I met a man who was happier than me.
Happier. Than me.
This is not a situation that I’m used to. Not with Happy As A Clam being my default setting since getting my life back and learning how to enjoy it.
As if to add insult to injury he also looked way better than me. We were the same age but he looked years younger, his skin was flawless, his hair was shiny, his eyes were bright.
But it wasn’t even his obvious physical health that stood out the most. He was completely relaxed and totally happy with himself. When I asked him why this was he simply said “I have total inner-peace now, I don’t need or crave anything anymore”.
Well that would do it I suppose.
The man I’m referring to is Dean Howell, known to many as a Left Back for Crawley Town F.C. What I didn’t know was as well as being a professional footballer, he owns a company called Revolution Foods a website that provides natural foods, herbal supplements and other health and well-being aides.
Dean follows a plant-based diet with an emphasis on Alkaline foods ( a comprehensive list of the range of the food he chooses from can be found here.) What I liked most about Dean’s approach to a healthy lifestyle is the manner in which he comes across. He clearly knows his stuff, but doesn’t blind you with technical jargon. That and the fact that he doesn’t sit behind a desk lecturing people. He’s a professional athlete and this lifestyle works for him so he really puts his money where his mouth is.
After chatting with him I felt totally uplifted, and to be honest more than a little bit of “I’ll have whatever he’s having please” was going on in my head. Luckily for me this nice man gave me loads of herbs to take home with me and try for myself. I have to say as soon as I started taking them, not only did I feel a big difference but my skin totally changed colour, the circles under my eyes disappeared and my skin felt baby-soft.
The man is a magician if you ask me.
So Lucky Me I get lots of lovely herbs, but also Lucky You because starting March 1st Revolution Foods is doing a 30 day challenge and inviting everyone to get involved. So if you fancy giving yourself a bit of a boost and a nutritional makeover for March then pop over and sign up! Revolution Foods are offering help and guidance for the entire challenge, recipes, breathing and toning exercises and updates to your email account.
The challenge itself consists of a 30 day introduction to a diet without meat. dairy or soy products. Although to be honest putting it that way doesn’t really do it justice, because in all honesty the secret to Dean’s success doesn’t seem to be in what he’s cutting out at all, it’s what he’s added to his life and lifestyle that makes his way so attractive. And why I think he will succeed in bringing nutritional changes to the Mainstream where many may not.
See you there! I’ll be the one with hair envy…
