Some More Mistruths Exposed About “Getting Healthy” Newspaper Article

I read a really bad article in the newspaper recently by some Australian “fitness guru”. Here are 5 more of his points in black and my reply in red. See previous critique of the article here.

Some of his 20 points were excellent such as prioritize sleep and eat more vegetables. He also said not to trust all fitness gurus. Cool. Agreed.

This is why I call it Primed  for your Life. I assess you, your needs, your tastes, your goals, your environment AND then we make the appropriate changes to ensure you live longer and live better.

Primed reverses

1) Drink more water.

More water means less need for drinks full of sugar. And studies show that people who preload their meals with a pint of water achieve extra weight loss.

Double your daily intake. We need to drink more good quality water.

Mariano Home-cooked Specialties in Iligan – a fabulous restaurant by a Cool Primed Family

This is easily my favorite restaurant in Iligan City. Actually, my favorite in the whole of Mindanao.

The Ambiance

Love the full glass windows, mirrors and square tables where all people can talk easily to each other.

There is even a beautiful outdoor dining area. this is where the doctors were for a meeting and then my Primed Seminar which they enjoyed. They also loved the Primed Mariano Spaghetti Squash.

This restaurant is cozy and relaxing.

The Food

When you have fabulous chef owners in Doi Mariano and Avril Mariano you cannot go wrong. Four years in business is testimony to their quality.

Here’s the delicious 4-Course Primed menu they created.

I proudly (and nervously) was in charge of dessert. I told Dr. Victor and his doctor friends that if it is good then I made it. However, if they didn’t like it then Avril prepared it. Haha. They loved it. You beauty.

Mariano Mango Mousse3

The Primed Mango Mousse was a winner. Especially when Avril’s chef added grated dark chocolate on top.

The Service

Avril Mariano is a charismatic and wonderful host. With an in-depth background in hospitality at places such as Makati Shangri-La I was not surprised that Avril’s staff were well-trained, profession and super friendly.

Mariano Home-cooked specialties in Iligan3

What I also loved is that their service crew are so sharp that they too have already started their Primed journey. That rocks and shows excellent intelligence.

The Guests

The people of Iligan City are very friendly. They are going Primed too and will be healtheir and happier. They will live longer, better lives.

Iligan top docs

The picture above is of some of the best pediatricians in the City. They are great docs with open-minds and were extremely receptive to the Primed lifestyle and protocols. They “got it” and are even applying the principles in their practices already.

Children cooking

The best thing we can do for our children is help them to maintain a stable blood glucose level within a normal range. Good health then follows. Baby steps to a healthier family/self include getting rid of fast food, avoiding teeth ruining soft drinks/juices/sports drinks, ditching cheap carbs (bread, pasta & noodles) in favor of nutrient dense vegetables and healthy fats and engaging a wellness coach to guide you. #Eatrealfood#HelpYourChildren #LowerCarbHigherHealthyFats#primedforyourlife

Banner Primed final

Primed food is real food to optimally nourish your brain and body. Grains, sugar, soy, veg oil and other highly processed stuff hurts you and your family. Nourish them with love and real food. #breadisdead#grainsequalsugar #sugarequalsinflammation#inflammationleadstodisease#100stafflost500kilosin80days #primedforyourlife#teachyourchildren #justeatrealfood #iligancity#marianoshomecookedspecialties

The Final Words from Juliet the morning after our Primed Mariano 4-course Dinner

“I woke up with so much energy today. I went walking, got some sunshine and started eating real food this morning. My 3 children are also very receptive to the change.”

Avril said: “Chad, you indeed helped another family to be healthy today. Thank you.”


Tricia’s fabulous Primed Laing

A special thanks to Tricia Noel for this fabulous Primed Laing recipe.


  • From Primed Patricia Noel 


    1st extraction from 2 grated coconuts (coco cream)

    2nd extraction from 2 grated coconuts (coco milk)

    Dried gabi leaves.

    Chopped onion, garlic, ginger.

    Salt and pepper, to taste



    1. Place coconut milk in a pan and reduce until about half in volume. You can start seasoning mildly with salt and pepper at this point. When reduced, place dried gabi leaves together with chopped onion, garlic and ginger. Allow this to rehydrate the veggies. The dried gabi leaves should about double in size.

    2. Right before taking this off the fire, add the coconut cream to make the laing richer. This should be about 1/2 to at most a cup of coconut cream, depending on how much gabi leaves you have (of course you can add more coconut cream depending on your preferred consistency). Cook the coconut cream for about 3 minutes or until the laing thickens up.

    Optional: – add siling labuyo (bird’s eye chilli) before serving for heat – add cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp after adding coconut cream (because we love our DHA) – I imagine it might be good to add lemongrass to the coconut milk as well together with the onion, garlic and ginger. I’d try making this without the lemongrass first though. I like simple, clean flavors.

  • We get our dried gabi leaves from the Centris sunday market in Quezon City 😊
