List of Diets That Do and Do Not Lead to Truth Health

By Dr. Bob McCauley

iStock_000014180087XSmallI really had no idea how many diets there actually are.  I had heard of a few of these, but all of them have one thing in common and that is how to trick the body into losing weight, sometimes naturally, sometimes unnaturally, often in an unhealthy way.

When we hear the word diet we think of something that is designed to change the substances we put into our bodies so we will lose weight.  We confuse weight-loss with health when they are not one in the same.  There’s only one diet that leads to true health.  Every other diet that someone has dream’t up only makes your body wonder why the heck you’re putting these substances into that don’t lead to true health.

Diets that DO lead to True Health:

  • Raw Food Diet (Plant based Vegan Diet) – AKA, Living Food Diet

From 2002-2004 he hosted the radio program Achieving Great Health, which was heard by thousands of people each day. His guests included some of the most well-known and respected names in the natural health world. With the help of his father, Dr. Robert F.

He received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1953 for his thesis on removing radioactive strontium from water.

He taught civil, sanitary and environmental engineering at Michigan State University for 18 years before retiring to run Wolverine Engineers & Surveyors of Mason, Michigan, for 17 years. His reputation throughout Michigan as a water quality expert was legendary. Bob worked for his father's company for 12 years learning the water business, which dealt primarily with municipalities, including water quality and sanitary sewer issues. After apprenticing with his father, Bob moved on to the bottled water business. He established greater Michigan's biggest selling bottled water: Michigan Mineral – Premium Natural Water. He was introduced to Ionized Water in 1995 and has done more to promote Ionized Water than anyone else in the industry.
