Getting fit means moving those two long things hanging from your waist.


Right now we are in the midst of all kinds of sports on tv comprised of individuals that are paid to stay healthy and strong.

Down the road we will be in the midst of the Olympics comprised of individuals that have spent years keeping fit for the sheer joy of competition and the test of personal prowess.

There will be enormous hoopla, thundering crowd roars, and the witnessing of what years of preparation, persistence, patience, and dedication will achieve through varied colored medals.

What motivates the professional athlete or the Olympian should be the same motivation that motivates all of us.

Why does the preparation, persistence, patience and dedication have to apply only to a select few? What about the rest of us?

At the beginning of the year I’m sure there must have been untold numbers of us making New Years’ resolutions to lose weight, live healthier lives, and adopt better eating habits.

So what happens? Busy schedules, old habits prevailing, and somehow that insane desire we had, dwindles.

Bear in mind that it is not an overnight thing to change habits to change your body. And guess what? It doesn’t happen overnight.

Those habits that we are entrenched with are nothing more than a routine or a behavior that we repeat regularly, automatically, and many times, unconsciously.

To develop a new habit is hard work especially if the new one competes with the old one and, in our minds, contradicts the old ones.

For the most part many of us measure our standards of health by the size of out waist or by seeing a few lesser pounds on the scale.

Those are just some of the side effects of a lifestyle characterized by our habits.

What we don’t realize is that there are habits we can develop that we normally would not think of.

When was the last time you chose the stairs over the escalator?

When was the last time you opted for water instead of the health debilitating, weight gaining, neurologically destructive, aspartame laden, diet soda?

When was the last time you opted for salad and used lemon juice or olive oil and balsamic vinegar as the salad dressing instead of thick, creamy, salad dressing?

When was the last time you passed on the bread or anything that had a face or a mother or even the chicken’s period?

All these, subtle as they may be, add up to a healthier lifestyle.

We watch ads on TV and see buff guys and women with incredible 6-packs selling products to make us look like them.

Do you really believe that they look the way they do because they used that piece of equipment three times a week for 20 minutes with a full money-back guarantee?

Hell no! It took them years.

So, do not expect, when you exercise for an hour, to have that toned torso.
One thing you will accomplish though is giving your body a new signal – the signal that you are using it.

If used consistently, you will give your body enough signals and if you do so over a long period of time, your torso will be toned.
Time and consistency are the keys.

Our problem is that we want instant results and try to change everything at once.
Instead of looking for that change immediately, give yourself time, be it anywhere from two weeks to two months.

Your body needs to adjust to its new format or new habit of regular exercise. There are some that say you should take 10,000 steps a day. That means you will have to buy a pedometer and become obsessed with fulfilling your step requirements. Paranoia comes in all forms.

And, it’s not different with new eating habits.

We know that sugar causes a myriad of problems so cut out the soda, cookies, cakes, candies and the like.
Since “diet” anything containing artificial sweeteners is a disaster, pass on it big time. The problem is it is hardly ever labeled.

So, your hidden or revealed sources of aspartame, Splenda, Amino Sweet, and other garbage is: diet sodas, yogurts, chewing gum (except for Xylitol or Spry), commercial cooking sauces, drink powders, flavored water, sugar free anything, commercial cereals, children’s medicines, and tabletop sweeteners.

Then, saturated fat, coming from anything that had a face or a mother, is well known for its artery clogging abilities leading to cancer, heart disease, arthritis, erectile dysfunction (a funny story to follow), stroke and just about every debilitating disease known.

Finally, stay away completely from GMOs. If it isn’t organic corn, soy or cotton do not touch it with a 10 foot pole. But what the hell, if GMOs kill the bees, how bad can it be. Oh yeah, Thailand has decided to extinguish all the Hawaii Rainbow (GMO) papayas and ban any more from entering the country.

As far as Canola oil goes, be it organic or non-organic, STAY AWAY! Show me where in nature I can find a “canola” and maybe I’ll view it differently. Canola oil, originally rapeseed oil, was largely an industrial solvent in Canada until some businessman got the great idea to market is as a vegetable oil to make money.

But like everything else, for most people, change takes time. Do it slowly but wean yourself away from those things that will cause you to be a repeat “customer” for your doctor.

Here’s a challenge: get yourself slowly and steadily to the point where you are exercising regularly and eating a plant/whole grain based diet.

When you finally get there do it consistently for two months. After those two months are up, look at yourself and your health. If you like what you see, stick with it. If you don’t like what you see, go back. When you do, you will feel the difference immediately but you should embrace the nausea, diarrhea, bloating, and weight gain with open arms.

Here’s that funny story I said you would get.

Most of you know that I sell a product called organic sulfur crystals that reverses many major health issues. One day, at my softball league, one of the guys asks me if the crystals will help with erectile dysfunction. I tell him it will. He buys it.
Two weeks later I ask him how it’s working and he says OK, but he’s only taking it once a day. I remind him that he should be taking it twice a day to be really effective because twice a day keeps the oxygen continually permeating and healing all the cells in the body. He then says that he is aware of that but that his wife can’t handle it when he takes it twice a day. So much for his erectile dysfunction!

Can I leave you with a little humor?

So, this older Jewish couple have a boring sex life. They decide to see a sex therapist. The sex therapist tells them they need a bit of excitement and stimulation in their sex life and suggests, for stimulation for the wife, a virile, handsome, young guy to stand there and wave a towel while they are having sex to stimulate her. So, they do it. The couple has sex and the young guy stands there and waves the towel. The sex was still boring. So the husband makes a suggestion. He tells the young guy to have sex with his wife while he waves the towel. While engaged in the activity the wife is screaming and moaning and going crazy. When they finish the husband looks down at them and arrogantly shouts, “See schmuck, that’s how you wave a towel”!


About Hesh:

I have been doing a radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called “Health Talk”. To listen to the show please tune into 1080 or 108 am or go to on your computer at 8am Hawaii time. FYI, 8 am Hawaii time is 10 am on the West coast and 2 pm on the East coast. To call in, the number is (808) 524-1080.

Now, American Voice Radio will be picking up my streamed show and playing it all week until the next one takes place. To listen, go to and click on my link at AVR 2. Starting in December I will be doing another radio show on AVR at 9:00 am Hawaii time on Thursday mornings. Just go to the website, click on AVR 1, and listen live or tune in later and listen via the archive to Health Talk with Hesh.

See you on the radio!

In 2007, I was “forced” to get a masters degree in Nutrition to stop all the doctors from calling in asking what my credentials were. Besides that, they never liked it when I asked them what their credentials were that would enable them to treat an illness without drugs or surgery.

If you go to and click on Podcasts and Articles, there are years of shows there as well as hundreds of health related articles that are completely free to listen to and read.

I am an activist. I am vehemently opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation, and everything else that the “pimps” (big pHarma, Monsanto, and the large food companies), and the “hookers” (the doctors, the government agencies, the Public Health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the “tricks”.

At 76, I am in 3 softball leagues, racewalk, do stand-up paddling, hike, swim, do weights and cardio, and teach women’s self-defense classes based upon 20 years of Wing Chun training. I have been a vegetarian since 1975 and a vegan since 1990, have no illnesses and take no meds.

After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child, I developed asthma, which plagued me until 2008 when I learned about and started taking the organic sulfur crystals. My asthma was reversed in 3 days and has not come back.

So far, 26 cases of autism that we know about have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, asthma, osteoarthritis, joint pain, gingivitis, and erectile dysfunction. The sulfur has increased sexual activity, eliminated toxins, heavy metals, radiation, and parasites. It speeds up athletic recovery time, increases blood circulation, reduces inflammation, increases resistance to the “flu”, reduces wrinkles, allergies, PMS, monthly period pain, migraines, nausea, lowering high blood pressure, raising low blood pressure and way more, because the oxygen that the sulfur releases floods and heals the cells in the body.

The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids.

You can find out more about this on my website under Products.

My book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”, which has been published, can be viewed and purchased at The book clearly explains why what you eat, for the most part, is designed to keep you in a state of declining health.

I have recently discovered two amazing super foods – Zeal and Shakeology – Zeal contains 30 amazing probiotics, anti-oxidents and more, all designed to build and strengthen the immune system and Shakeology contains 42. What’s great about Shakeology is that it is filling, replaces one meal and keeps you full for hours and helps with weight control and loss. For more info about Shakeology please email me or go to The good news about Shakeology is if you are not satisfied after 30 days the company will refund you.

And now I have come across an amazing bee pollen that is so soft it melts in your mouth and has so many benefits. It is rich in vitamin B12 and all B vitamins, proteins, minerals, beneficial fatty acids, carotenoids, bioflavenoids, antioxidants, antihistamines, enzymes, antibiotics, and natural phenylalanine, which acts as an appetite suppressant, and more.

My daily regimen consists of one teaspoon of the crystals twice a day, one scoop of the Zeal in cold water, one packet of Shakeology either in 8 to 12 ounces of water or added to my smoothie and a heaping tablespoon of bee pollen. For more about Shakeology please go to

When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
