By the way the word “fan” as in “Baseball fan” doesn’t come from people waving fans at themselves during hot sports events. it comes from the word “Fanatic”.
I used to think my dad was a “Fanatic”.
A Health food NUT!
A FITNESS FREAK!
I used to think “Yo Lighten up old man, have a damn bowl of ice cream and a cookie…”
But at a certain point my Dad, Lewis M. Shepard made a DECISION to take charge of his health.
Looking back at it now I see that he actually used Honest Hypnosis to literally hypnotize himself to say “no” to crap food and “yes” to sustainable healthy eating and exercise habits.
So he began around the age of 45-50 to take exquisite care of his body. He also started changing his thinking. HE’s the guy who first turned me on to Anthony Robbins and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
Now, at age 88 he swims 2-3 times a week, does the slow burn resistance training I’m always talking about and puts many 20 and 30 year olds to shame with his endless, exuberant energy…
I got him to sit still long enough for an interview this morning.
