Celebrity fitness guru Harley Pasternak is behind the amazing bodies of celebrities such as Megan Fox, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. It doesn’t require being a celebrity nor do you need to live in the 90210 to have the results that these iconic women have. In a recent Yahoo interview with Harley, he states that his advice is based on science, not fads.
With all the different diets on the market it’s difficult to know what to believe and what is truly good advice.
I found his response to the journalists question about the Peleo diet interesting. I also was delighted to hear him say that he eats chocolate chip cookies; regularly might I add. Most of all I was challenged by his comment about his own rule to not sit down when he’s on the phone.
The moral of the story is that you should always investigate what you hear about diets. When I speak of healthy and super nutritious foods or my gentle nutritional program, I expect that you will want to have the data to back up my claims. Eating healthy doesn’t mean you will be eating bread made of cardboard and lima beans the rest of your life. With consistent healthy choices your can afford to have your favorite splurge every now and then. Being active doesn’t have to mean that you spend 2 hours in the gym.
Having adopted all of the celebrity guru’s advice well before ever having heard of him, at 43 I’d say that I’m doing okay in achieving my “celebrity” body. By making small and simple changes in your daily activities, you’ll find yourself catapulted into a healthy and fit life.
In honor of the fall season I am sharing Harley’s healthy cookie recipe- Enjoy! And until next time, all my best!
