Eat simple food, move with nature and make time for your spirit, is Italian health guru David Marianis philosophy on how to live a long, healthy and happy life.
Changing ones lifestyle, getting into better shape and perhaps also losing weight is something both I and many of you are familiar with. I have been doing this on a personal level for years and also helping others do the same.
Therfore it was very exciting to meet Italys’ health guru and best-selling author, David Mariani in Montecatini for “Project Healthy in Italy”. (Read more about it here)
The passionate and humble David invited me to his wellness resort where he has been helping people change their lifestyles and health for over 40 years. He works with doctors, psychologists and nutritionists. But perhaps the best secrets and advice on the subject are those found in the answers from his many interviews with Itailian nonnas (grandmas). These women are all well over 85 and still thriving! Their knowledge has become part of his teachings.
David has recently turned his many years of research into a best-selling book “Reborn in 21 Days”, where he shares his knowledge on how important movement is for the body, mind and spirit. The book sold over 35 000 copies in Italy in its first week of release. Due to the success the book is also in the process of being translated into 21 Spanish speaking countries. Hopefully the best-selling book will also be translated into English soon!
David works both one- on- one with clients, loves to give speeches to larger audiences and is also passionate about sharing his “Healthy Habits” with companies as well. His goal is to use his methodology to help prevent and cure, both short term and long term disease and illnesses that are due to a seditary and “modern day” lifestyle. According to David’s research there are over 3, 5000, 000 premature deaths related to the lack of physical activity. Luckily there are people like David wanting to help change our unhealthy habits and turn them into healthy habits one step at a time…
