EP 2: How to eat better, avoid health problems and live longer.

Updated: Dec 28, 2022

Merry Christmas from the Cold Press Index Team! Writing this short blog post from Osaka while the team is taking a one-week break. For 2022, we have helped at least a 1,000 people in Singapore live more vibrant lives and sold more than 10,000 bottles of cold pressed juices. I believe that exponent thinking is important. While 10,000 bottles is a small number in the entirety of the microcosm, the personal engagement with customers, sharing plant-based advice to the best of our abilities and the healing power of plant-based nutrition that I’ve seen is incredible. Recovering from high cholesterol and blood pressure after consuming green juices, lessening gastric pain, and customers transiting into vegans/vegetarians are some of the notes that I took down during my post-mortem for 2022.

Please ignore the first paragraph as my brain tends to go into overdrive and I love writing. This is my year end message.

1. How to eat better – Mediterranean diet. Complex carbohydrates, plenty of fruits and vegetables (eat the rainbow) – 5 servings, latest research in 2018 suggested 10 servings for added longevity. Good protein source, beans, legumes. Natural probiotics like fermented kombucha, kimchi.

2. Please don’t starve yourself. Intermittent fasting is in the most general sense false. The key to weight loss is caloric deficit/surplus.

3. Start making good decisions the first thing in the morning. This has been live changing. This morning I woke up to a beautiful morning in Osaka at 6am after leaving the club at 4am. Headed straight down to the breakfast buffet at the Hilton and I immediately started to look for complex carbohydrates, fruits/veggies, and lean protein. Things that I found – Whole Meal Bread, Boiled Broccoli/Cauliflower/Carrots, Melon, Fuji Apple, Grapefruit, Bananas. I couldn’t locate any lean protein in the buffet. It was all fat people food like bacon, sausages. I feel that I have control of the matrix – and it just sets up my day for better decision making.
