According to an article in the Guardian on 10/10/2017 ‘obesity threatens to bankrupt the NHS’.
Figures compiled by the World Obesity Federation reveal the current cost to the UK is £14.38 billion and will rise to £23.47 billion by 2025.
Currently, or should I say in 2014, 27.3% of the UK population where classified as obese. If current trends keep going, then we can expect 33.9% by 2025.
In my opinion there are a number of things to blame for this global trend:
In the end though, none of the above really matter, as it’s YOU that choses what to eat, and how to exercise.
So what can be done?
Learning about health in general is a great start, and I’ve written and vlogged a great deal about this already.
As I know that many, many people need an easy answer, here’s 3 videos to help:
And finally, as bonus, the origins of ‘Are you digging your grave with your teeth?’

Draw Your Future, or Dig Your Grave With Your Teeth!
What on Earth am I on about now?
One of my good friends, Pete Cohen, is a world class life coach and he organised a conference on the 23rd of September.
One of the speakers was my friend and mentor Dr Bob Rakowski.
‘Dr Bob’ covered a range of health strategies that you should be familiar with – The Magnificent 7. If’ you missed my previous training on these then here’s a catch up:
Of everything Bob said, the one phrase that stuck in my mind was that there are more people dying in the West from inadequate and poor nutrition choices than anything else – or as he put it, ‘digging your grave with your teeth’.
Another speaker who made a greater impact on me than I thought she would, was 3 time TEDx speaker Patti Drobrowolski.
There is no way I can do her justice in a few words, all I can say is she connects your brain to focusing on what you really want, and helps you clear the mental clutter, and draw out your creative genius, in a very simple way.
There is a saying that pictures are worth a thousand words, but in reality, it turns out they are worth 2 million!
Make what you will of the post conference picture I poorly took with Pete, Patti, myself and some of the other Mi365 crew:
While here is Patti’s picture summary of the whole day:

Astaxanthin, nature’s sunblock has a host of potent health benefits, and can help athlete’s and arthritis sufferers alike…
I’ve found skin benefits start at 2mg a day, and anti-inflammatory properties start at 8mg day.
In my first video on astaxanthin I explained why I took it in summer, and D3 in winter. Now with the knowledge that ataxanthin has unique abilities to keep all our cell membranes healthy I’m choosing to take it all year.

Don’t forget to read my last blog post about how to be part of the World Peace solution, rather than feeling helpless, or hoping somebody else will deal with it:
After watching Professor Brian Cox’s program for the BBC ‘The 21st Century Race for Space’ I was inspired to make a video on Facebook last week. I’ve now uploaded it to Youtube:
Then 3 days later I was at a conference called ‘Fast Forward Your Business’ (FFYB) which really could have been called Fast Forward Your Consciousness. It would take me half an hour to explain why, so I’ll shorten it to these two snippets
Let’s just say I got home on Sunday even more eager to get this peace process hurried along.
That’s when I stumbled again across International Peace Day, which I remembered I’d read about last year. It’s on the 21st of September. Every year since 1981, set up by the United Nations. You’d think there would be more publicity.
There are plenty of ways to get involved with this, and link up with others, ready to do something about World Peace, which I’ll cover in a moment.
The BIG problem with World Peace, is that it is such a huge issue, that most people can’t even seriously entertain the idea of doing something about it. It’s scary, and seems ridiculous to entertain such thought. It’s taken me 45 years to realise that ‘I’d like to see world peace’ has to be more than ‘a nice idea that I’d love to something about, but I really don’t know what to do, so I won’t even look’.
Did you know that a cure for epilepsy, discovered in the 1920’s is now the ‘new big thing’ in the health and fitness industry? Learn more in the video, including the ‘1 hour keto cheat’
It’s called the ketogenic diet and it was originally developed to treat epilepsy. The strict ketogenic diet consists of about 90% fat, however a well research, much more sustainable ‘Modified Atkins’ version is
At first glance, you may think all that fat is a bad thing, and it certainly will be if you are eating rubbish, processed fats. It’s a lot of effort, and a big change, but if you can stick with it and you are eating good quality healthy fats though, this is the list of possible benefits:
Pretty impressive, and the really good news, is there is now a way to get into ketosis, within an hour, without having to change your diet.
I share some more facts, including the cheat method in the video.
If you’d like to try the ‘exogenous ketones’ I spoke about then call the clinic on 01707 662 704 for more details.
Most people are unaware of their belief systems and innate values and this is what often leads to depression, anger, etc.
Most of our modern world’s dissatisfaction, depression, anger and irritability comes from a mismatch between our core values and our beliefs
Most people have belief systems based on advertising and marketing.
Most people believe how they feel is random chance and believe they can not choose for themselves.
Think Well, Be Well.
I first encountered the concept of Fixed and Growth mindsets thanks to Todd Herman, a performance expert (in business and sport).
Todd called these ‘Oww’ and ‘Wow’.
