Q: I attended your last seminar “Teeth for Life”, which was great by the way. I was surprised to hear you say that you are fifty-eight years old. You look at least ten years younger. I have seen many doctors over the years who are overweight and out of shape and find it very unsettling. What is your secret if I may ask?
A: I am flattered you asked. If airhead celebrities can write diet and exercise books, why not take advice from a health professional? We have many talents. Did you know the author of Jurassic Park, the late Michael Creighton was an MD?
1) Exercise four days per week, for one hour each of those days. Two of those days are weight lifting.
2) The other two days have to be cardio. I bike run or swim laps depending on the weather or mood. The cardio must be 20 to 30 min.
3) Diet: Six meals per day. 7:45 AM: Isopure Zero Carb Protein Shake. 11:00AM four egg whites on matzo with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese. 1:00 PM: Big meal of the day for me: Any type of sandwich that includes some type of meat or fish: beef, poultry, pork, with a side salad. If you get fries or chips, eat five of them. 5:00PM a Quest protein bar (GNC). 7:00PM: BBQ Filet Minion, chicken and broccoli sausages, chicken and feta meatballs, or pasta with meet sauce. Side of grilled peppers. 9:00PM yoghurt and fruit with cereal on top.
Over the weekend: a dose of pizza and one cheeseburger for a reward, but no fries and no meats on the pizza. Try to order fish when you go out; who wants their home to stink like fish?! (How weird; fish eat fish for every meal. What does a piranha say when he is munching on a human: “Hey, this guy is way under cooked; he still smells like an accountant.”)
