Jack LaLanne, also known as “the godfather of fitness,” was enormously popular from the 1950s to the 1980s, when his TV program  “The Jack LaLanne Show” aired (the first-ever devoted to exercise).

The two videos below are just snippets of his teachings, but they are incredible! Jack LaLanne was clearly 50 years ahead of his time.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:
Today Jack LaLanne is in his 90s, but he looks like he’s about 50. Clearly he’s been following his own advice, and it’s been working to keep him trim and remarkably healthy.

I sure hope I will be as healthy as Jack when I reach his age.  Many people do not know that he was trained as a chiropractor (but never used the title), and that his daughter is a chiropractor.

When Jack LaLanne was a child, he reportedly was very violent, attacking his brother with an axe and even setting his parent’s house on fire. He then attended a lecture given by nutritionist Paul Bragg, and was inspired to change his diet and lifestyle. LaLanne has said that his former high-sugar diet was what caused him to be violent as a child.

In the first video above, I was surprised how LaLanne really suggests a protein type meal plan. He really sums up the problems that are plaguing many of your diet’s today: too much sugar that is zapping away your energy and vitality.

The second video contains LaLanne’s 10 tips to live a better life, and they include all of the latest health information, along with things you hear about today in The Secret.

Jack LaLanne once said, “People don’t die of old age, they die of neglect.” And he is really the living proof of this statement.

Remember that it’s never too late to make changes for the better when it comes to your health.

I’d suggest that everyone take LaLanne’s challenge in the first video, and cut out the high-sugar foods he lists for five days. You WILL feel better by the end of the week.

If you like, you can also compare LaLanne’s top 10 list to live a better life (in the second video) with my own list below. You’ll see many similarities. Amazing!
