Wade Lightheart: Now Here’s a Guy Who Actually Gets It

By Bob McCauley, ND

Wade Lightheart (here is a video) promotes a water ionizer that is sold through an MLM.  So essentially he’s a competitor of mine.  But I ran across this video and I have to say he looks great and he’s doing a lot of things I have been promoting for years.  A diet of raw fruits and vegetables and a foundation Alkaline Ionized Water with which he starts his day.  I drink the exact same amount when I wake in the morning as he does – a quart (liter).  (Never drink more than one quart of water per hour).    Start your day with water!!  It wakes you up and gives your body what it needs more than anything else.

I don’t know what else Wade is doing for his health and training program, and what other foods or supplements that he might be taking, but I love some of his quotes in the video: “I did this not because I was eating, but because I wasn’t”  Exactly.  Food doesn’t make you strong.  Lifting heavy stuff all the time does.  Food can only provide the body with the nutrients it requires to build muscle.  The best nutrients for the body come from raw fruits and vegetables.  Don’t eat much food and when you do eat only raw fruits and vegetables.  Some foods are more useful than others for building muscle.

Wade openly dismisses cooked animal protein stating that it completely unnecessary – as it is!  In fact, regular consumption of cooked meat, fish, eggs, dairy cause more disease than anything else other than people do not drink enough water.  Chronic cellular dehydration is the number one cause of disease.

Thor Bezler wrote Raw Power about natural body building and the raw food diet.



Peter Ragnar wrote Serious Strength for Seniors and other books about building muscle on a raw food diet.



Randy Couture drinks ionized water and takes spirulina and chlorella.



I’m a 3rd degree Black Belt and haven’t eaten meat for 32 years (1982), and I’ve been a vegan for 12 years (1999).


There are few bodybuilders who promote Alkaline Ionized Water and the Raw Food Diet.  There are other things we need to do if we expect to be healthy, which I summarize in my Seven Components Health Protocol: Alkaline Ionized Water, Spirulina and Chlorella, Raw Foods, Probiotics, Angstrom Minerals, Exercise and maintaining a Positive Mental Attitude.
