My name is Allen Fisher. Having been in the professional athlete for
the over 30 years and having over 26 World Championships and many International and National
titles since December of 1980, I was interested to know what was
necessary for peak performance.
Many remember me as an avid vitamin consumer. For most of my Arm
Wrestling career, I consumed and endorsed what were considered to be the best supplements
an athlete could obtain.
Research led me to discover that
so-called "natural vitamins" are isolated from those other vital
nutrients that are only found in food. So those whose take them are
getting just a fragment on what they need. And often these
"vitamins" are synthetic. There are numerous medical case
studies proving vitamins can actually do more harm than good. Medical research shows that, when these are used only a small portion of the
nutrients are utilized, but most of the nutrients are eliminated from the body. I
could see that vitamins could never restore the nutrients I burn as an athlete.
Leading Health Authorities like the National Institutes of Health, The
American Heart Association, National Cancer Institute and the U.S. Food & Drug
Administration, just to name a few, agree with the medical research that getting nutrients
from whole food sources - real fruits and vegetables - is much better than a supplemental
diet with isolated vitamins.
Medical Studies recommend that we eat at least 5-9
servings of raw fruits and vegetables everyday. The research now shows
that more is better. Many Health Institutions are say 9 to 13 everyday. These whole foods contain antioxidants and plant nutrients that
can help prevent
the harmful effects of free radicals and enhance overall good health.
Lights, camera, action: The
media also seems to have caught on. You can hardly pick up a newspaper, magazine or watch
TV without seeing or hearing something about the benefits of fruits and vegetables.
The problem, There was no way I
was going to follow those recommendations, especially since I didn't like most of the
vegetables in the first place. If you're part of the majority you're not eating 5-9
servings of fruits and vegetables everyday either. For what ever reason, whether we
find vegetables too expensive, too much hassle or just don't like the taste of steamed
broccoli, we have to admit, most of us just don't get enough. Especially
Encouragement: I'll send you free of charge an DVD or CD from a
Health Care or Fitness Professional that help you understand my passion about
building a stronger healthier body with whole food nutrition. You'll be astounded, as I was 9 years ago, with the results. I would love to
hear from any of you who take this challenge. If you prefer

I sincerely hope above things that you
may prosper and be in health.
