“I was recently interviewed on the topic of personal change. The reporter asked me one of the best questions I have ever been asked: “what is the best small change you have ever made in your life?” I love this question. For most of my adult life, I always considered myself “reasonably healthy”. Today, looking back, I am embarrassed about how ignorant I was. I was treating my body terribly. That was evident on a daily basis. For years, I struggled with bad skin, being overweight, frequent heartburn and late-afternoon energy crashes. Worst of all, I just accepted this as a part of life. I never realized that what I was drinking and eating was causing this pain all along.
As I write this, I am in the best shape of my life: ideal weight, clear skin, abundant energy, and no more heartburn. I never realized that this was possible for me. I have totally transformed my health. People I know who have not seen me for a while often comment on my physical appearance. I share this with you not to impress you but to express a very important point. Making tiny changes in how I eat has completely transformed my health. It took me less than 30 days to transform my body.
Actually, after just a few days, I could feel the power of the change. I don’t claim to be an expert in the field of nutrition but I can speak with total confidence on the change that happened to me.
So let me share with you my answer to that reporter’s question. My response was “my breakfast”. Before I began my health transformation, toasted bread and breakfast cereal was what I ate for almost every breakfast of my life for as I could remember. I thought it was a healthy choice but I was wrong. When I finally decided that I wanted to take my health to the next level, I asked my friend Primed Marc Daubenbuechel if he could recommend someone to me. The first person he said was Chad Davis. I did not know it then, but Chad is the Philippines’ number one health and wellness coach. The guy is a nutrition genius. He looked at my breakfast and informed me how poor of a decision I was making. His advice was simple: switch to eggs and homemade blended green juice (kangkong + banana + honey + water ). The change, although so tiny, had a huge impact on me. I believe it was one of the key changes I had made that resulted in my health being transformed. It’s the power of the daily victory.”
