Celebrity Coach And Nutritionist Shares His Wisdom


So this is John Pierre. The first time I worked out
with him I just thought, “This is the most fun I’ve ever had.” So I wanted to share this with y’all. – Just kinda move your feet, in, in, out, out, and just a little zig-zag pattern. When I first started I was
seeing a lot of clients that were prematurely aging. I mean there would actually
be clients coming in, that were 12 years old, 270 pounds. You know, diabesity. So they had diabetes, obesity, you knew they had heart disease already ’cause were seeing heart disease in kids as young as three that have been killed in automobile accidents. Their bodies are autopsied
and they see already plaque developing in the arteries. So we know that these young
people are getting it, but I was seeing more and more clients that were premature aging. Not only mentally you could
see them deteriorating, but physically they were deteriorating. And when you look at their food diary, you would see what they were eating, predominantly animal
products and processed foods, they weren’t really eating
much plant matter at all. So they weren’t eating high volumes of fruits and vegetables, they weren’t eating whole grains. Very rarely were they
eating nuts and seeds or sweet potatoes and things like that. And as I started changing their diets, not only did they start losing weight, but their energy started increasing, they start feeling better and
they start looking better. And as they would keep coming back to me, we’d start seeing, because
they’d been going to a physician, their blood pressure is going down and their cardiovascular
markers were improving and everything so it
was pretty fascinating how well I was seeing results with clients with plant-based eating. I would fine-tune clients even more, so we’d get clients that would be dropping 150 pounds in a year. People would have blood sugar of 600 and start going back to, now 125, reversing heart disease,
diabetes would go away. It was amazing. Kids with attention deficit,
hyperactivity, violence, all of a sudden changed their diet, then I start changing
their lifestyle and boom. Kids would pop back to normal,
as if they were normal again. And people would run up
to their parents saying, “What medication is your child on?” And they’d say, “No, we just changed his diet and his lifestyle.” So one of the main
things that we need to do is we need to increase
the volume of vegetation. So we need to increase the volume of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are
basically the highest levels of antioxidants we can get, other than, say maybe
spices or essential oils, but what we normally
find in our daily life are fruits and vegetables. So the more fresh fruits and
vegetables that you consume, the more antioxidants you consume and that prevents premature aging. Those are kinda like
your internal bodyguards, they’re protecting you
against stress and pollution and damage that might
be occurring in the day. And for most people they’re
not occurring at a normal rate, they’re at accelerated rate, and so the average person, maybe 90, 92 or more of their diet is animal products and processed foods. Not only do those foods
not have antioxidants, but they have pro-oxidants, so they’re causing you to
actually prematurely age. So by adding fresh fruits and
vegetables into your diet, you can slow down the
aging process for sure and the easiest way to do it, aside from eating more
fresh fruits and vegetables, is have a smoothie. Just basically get a non-dairy milk, put it in a blender, put some organic frozen
blueberries in there, right, put in some kale or any
green that you like, and maybe put in another
sweet fruit like mangoes or whatever it is you like, blend it up and you’re good to go. You’re eating more fresh
fruits and vegetables in one serving of that than a lot of people
eat in an entire week. It’s not uncommon to have
a client lose 150 pounds in a little over a year. So these are pure blown food addicts. So if they can do it, anyone can do it. When you’re looking at processed foods, those are definitely, you’re ringing the bell in the brain with the processed foods, and it’s very similar to drugs. But after a while you
adapt, you neuro-adapt, and it’s the same thing with your diet. You’re running on this
super high all the time. Either you’re super excited with caffeine, some sort of stimulant and sugar, or you’re sedated with
a high-fat diet, right. So it’s one or the other. Once you start getting healthy and you start neuro-adapting, your body starts regulating
to a different speed, so you’re not functioning at
this high speed all the time, and you’re okay to be here, that appears to be normal for you now. So when I work with clients, I’m looking at their sleep, I’m looking at their relationships. Do they have a good family tie? Are they volunteering? Do they do something for the community? So you’re looking at a
person’s whole entire being, not just their diet. And that’s an important part, but it’s no more important
than loving relationships, and how much they move their body, how happy are they, how do they contribute to society, how much rest do they get. My co-founder, Andrea Rose, she coined the term “planet-based living.” And planet-based living is
different than plant-based, because plant-based just denotes a diet whereas planet-based living is, it’s a whole way to live
and it’s about the planet, it’s not just me, me, me, me, me, it’s about we.
