ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Is ZEN+ Wrong?

By Marcus Santer

I love BBC Radio 4.

But please don’t tell Clarabella, I’d never live it down.

As far as she’s aware, I find it boring =)

Anyway, there I was making a second cup of tea and as always the radio was on. I usually ignore it, but the words:

“…today’s obesity epidemic, which some claim will bankrupt the NHS…”

(NHS = National Health Service here in the UK).

S’funny, because the bit I just listened to had some expert blaming the amount of food available and the relative drop in the price of food.

As I listened I just shook my head.

I might have missed the bit where they actually pointed out what is fuelling the obesity epidemic and the diabetes problem that’s following close on it’s boot heels.

But as I just stopped writing this to listen to the advice the panel of experts were asked to give to listeners wanting to tackle obesity in 2015 I don’t think I did.

Here’s some of the advice given:

“Moderate eating, plain eating, plenty of exercise and sleep.”

“Fun exercise.”

The best comment was by the last guest, who when asked what people should put in their New Year’s resolutions, cut the presenter off and simply said words to the effect of:

Don’t bother, they don’t work and you don’t stick to them. Individual willpower doesn’t work.


But my favourite bit was where they were suggesting that World War 2 style rationing was a possible solution to the problem.

Jeez Louise!

I’m going to have to listen to the program again.

Anyway, over the last few days I’ve been knocking over a few ‘Sacred Cows’.

By saying that the Government sanctioned 2.5 hours of exercise a week isn’t going to keep you healthy.

Quite simply because it’s not how active you are for 2.5 hours a week, it’s how active you are for the other 109.5 hours of the week you’re not asleep.

And yesterday I mentioned the 17 studies in Gary Taubes book: Why We Get Fat – which showed how it’s possible to get obese even when you’re poor, hardworking and underfed.

And I finished by saying how I was concerned everything I’d poured into the 196 pages of the new ZEN+ book might be wrong.

Well, as I continued reading Gary’s book I found myself more and more in agreement with it.

It’s 256 pages long.

But on page 11 you’ll find this:

“If your goal in reading this book is simply to be told the answer to the question: What do I do to remain lean or lose the excess fat I have? Then this is it: stay away from carbohydrate-rich foods, and the sweeter the food or the easier it is to consume and digest… the more likely it is to make you fat and the more you should avoid it.”

The rest of the book is about proving the above paragraph.

So I’m delighted to say: ZEN+ is still a valid lifestyle choice.


But then ZEN+ isn’t just about helping you to stay lean or lose your love handles.

Ugh, ugh.

It’s about helping you to be fitter, stronger and healthier too, whatever your age and in all dimensions:

Now, if you’ve already pre-ordered your copy of the ZEN+ book – and received the complementary PDF I’m giving away until the books arrive – turn to page 195 and you’ll find: ZEN+ in a nutshell.

On one page it clearly shows you what ZEN+ is.

And you’ll quickly realise ZEN+ isn’t just a book, it’s a blueprint for a new and better way of life.

There simply is nothing else available on the market that presents this range of tools.

It is unique.

And if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy of:

ZEN+ The Art and Science of Living Healthier for Longer


Yet, there’s still time to reserve one of the 275 copies I’m having printed (I was able to order an extra 25 copies at the last moment).

So at the time of writing there are 15 copies left.

And once they’re gone, they’re gone.

That’s it.

I have no idea if or when I’ll be having more books printed.

So you’ll have to make do with the PDF version – which will cost you more than if you pre-order a hard copy today.

It’s all explained here.

Bye for now


P.S. I can’t wait for 2015 to come around because next year is going to be all about taking ZEN+ out on the road and sharing it with as many people as possible.

At age 43 I think I might’ve finally have found my life’s work.

I’m scared and excited in equal measure.

And you can still get in on the ground floor.

Reserve your copy of the ZEN+ book now.
