Is There A Way To Not Get Colds?
We all dread them and if you were like me you typically get 1-2 colds a year and they tend to happen around Christmas or in the winter right? Sometimes a random one in the summer.
Let me give you a quick background of how my health used to be and what I did to change all of it including one particular item call Pure Energy Greens that changed my life forever.
My Previous Health And How I Got Rid Of Colds For 6 Years
The title says it all. No colds for 6 years. But let me start where I was first…..
I would typically get a cold or 2 a year and then maybe the flu once every few years. I would say that is typical of most people. At this particular point in my life I was getting sick MUCH MUCH more than that. Every 6 weeks I would have to take a week off of work because I was far too sick to work. I did this for about 9 months until I had enough and decided to find a cure.
Now, if anyone here was on the diet I was on, you would probably get the same results. I was working out very heavily at the time and my diet consisted of the following:
- Ice cream (there was a stretch where I had a pint of Hagen Daz every night for 3-4 months!)
- Lots of candy/ sugar
- Pasta/ carbs
- Sugar drinks/ Gatoraid
- Little to no water or veggies at all.
- very little fish and no vitamins
Looking at this diet, I was doomed! I was only 27 at the time. How in the world did my body survive on that? I wasn’t even fat thanks to being in construction and working out. I am sure I was dead inside though.
Clearly this was the cause as no body can take that kind of abuse for long and still function properly. Luckily I didn’t drink alcohol.
So What Did I Do?
I have always been a fan of Tony Robbins and listened to his coaching programs for many years. I knew he had a health program on creating a healthy body, so I ordered it. In that program, he threw out a challenge for trying a 30 day all live food diet with no processed foods. In that was suggested to take the energy greens as I mentioned earlier. I love a challenge, so I did it.
Now, this was a complete 180 from what I was eating. The first week my body went into some extreme shaking and almost shock, but I eventually worked through it.
After the 30 days were up (and no it wasn’t easy at first), I was a new man. I felt alive like I had never felt before. I wasn’t tired when I woke up and seemed to have wayyyy more energy. Now I wasn’t a big fan of eating this way for the rest of my life, so I decided to modify the plan and allow myself some cheat days and added in some carbs and fish in place of meat. I never did eat meat again though.
I went on with this modified diet for 6 years and never once had a cold or flu. I was unsure if the energy greens were even doing anything anymore, so I decided to stop taking them for a year.
In that year I had 1-2 colds and was shocked as it had been soooo long since the last.
I realized how powerful and essential these pure greens were to have as a part of my diet, so I put them back into it again and no colds since.
Now I can see how this would seem like a sales pitch for energy greens. I would have to say that I don’t have to pitch anything, I am walking proof how great these are and why would I not want to share my experience with others! These are frigging amazing and I only take them once a day. (I’ll add a link below if you are interested in them.)
Your diet alone could prevent colds I feel, but I would say the deciding factor for me is Tony’s energy greens. That is my personal secret and to me it tastes like green tea (just don’t smell it!).
