– [Vishen] There used to be a time
when I would, every now and then, bring donuts to the office for my
teammates, because I thought that this was a nice gesture to show that I cared. Today, I would never
do something like this. So here’s what happened. In 2016, I went through a transformation
that changed me dramatically. I had to toss out 70% of the clothes in my
closet because my body shape changed. I went from 22% body fat to 15% body fat. My energy shot through the roof. My skin started clearing up. But this is how it started. It was January of 2016 and
I was at an event called the Transformational Leadership Council. It’s a gathering of some of the top
authors in spirituality and health and wellness all across the world. At this particular gathering,
I was new and I saw this one guy who was being presented with a gold
medal by all of these other authors. And one by one, they were getting
up and acknowledging him and how he changed their life. So apparently, he had helped a
large number of these authors go through a massive
health transformation. So when Eric got on stage to get his
award, he announced that he was going to do this health transformation challenge
again for the authors in that room and I jumped at that opportunity. I decided to connect with Eric and
sign up for the next challenge which he called WildFit. So it was February of 2016
that I participated in this 90-day WildFit program. And what happened to me
next was transformative. So Eric’s a South African entrepreneur and
he had started a number of different companies in different fields, including
a production company that worked on movies likePirates of the Caribbean.But it’s what he does in his spare
time that makes him really unique. He spends a good deal of his spare
time living with the San people of South Africa, hunting with
them, living with their tribe, understanding their way of life. And he noticed something
fascinating about the San people. Even in their older ages, he
noticed that the men and women of the tribe were remarkably healthy. But here’s the curious thing, modern
science shows that the San people do not do any more exercise
than modern living humans. It’s a myth that many indigenous
tribes actually get more exercise. So what is it that made the San
people so much more healthier? Eric believed it was their diet. So Eric gained an ability to
flip a switch in his biology. Rather than get his body to crave sugar
and burn the sugar that he’s consuming, he trained his body to
burn the excess fat. Our bodies today carry about a
quarter-million calories of excess fat around us. Eric trained his body to tap into those
fat reserves for incredible energy and incredible health. And WildFit was transforming the
health of all his friends including me. Check out these videos of fellow authors
at the Transformational Leadership Council talking about what
Eric just did for them. – [Woman 1] I cannot say enough
about the WildFit program. I released weight, 19 pounds,
and I’ve kept it off. – [Woman 2] My allergies went tremendously
down, and also, I started having the last year’s pain in my bones, like on my knees,
my joints, and after doing WildFit, that was actually gone without
doing extra exercises. – [Man 1] Don’t know how many times
I’ve been on diet, but every time, I just couldn’t make it. And thanks to Eric and the WildFit,
I lost about 20-some pounds. – [Woman 3] And what I love about WildFit
is that it brings you the confidence to live the life you want to live,
to become the owner of your choices, in terms of the food you eat, and
also, to be aware of your habits. – [Man 2] Fifteen pounds fell off. That never happened before. Fifteen pounds fell off,
but not because it was a diet, it was because I was running a new life. WildFit is not a diet and
it’s not a lifestyle change. WildFit is my whole psychology. – Now, isn’t that amazing? Now, it wasn’t just these authors. Eric also just, a couple of months back,
received a gold medal from the Canadian Senate for what he did transforming
the health of a Canadian politician. So WildFit transformed me. It was as if I reversed my aging
by a good five to eight years. And, you know, when you stumble
upon something that’s so powerful, you want to tell all your friends
about it, so I told my parents, who were skeptical. My mom and my dad, who
was 70, went through it, and they had a transformation. And then I decided the ultimate test
was to bring this to my company. And this is where you see why I no
longer bring donuts to the office. Over 100 people in Mindvalley and
their spouses went through WildFit. The results just utterly blew us away. One guy, Diab, from Egypt,
who was hooked on Coke, finally got off his addiction. Our CTO, Gareth, lost 51 pounds,
and the results also applied to women all across the team. And what happened is all of these
transformations were happening in 90 days. But the result didn’t stop after 90 days. And so as people’s energy levels started
shooting up, their work improved, but not only that, they started
getting a desire to take up sports, to go into weight training, to
start training for Spartan Races. This transformed our
company in a dramatic way. And that’s when we knew we had to bring
WildFit to our Mindvalley student base. And that’s how Mindvalley WildFit emerged. So diets don’t often work and this is why
Americans go into diets, come out of it, fail, go back into diets,
come out of it, fail. The diet industry is designed to sell you
a broken system, a broken product so you have to keep buying and buying and
buying over and over and over again. WildFit reprograms your brain to only want
the things which are healthy for you. If you’re eating unhealthy and
going for a run, it doesn’t work. And you have to fix food first
before you go into exercise. Using the behavioral modification
system of WildFit on Mindvalley’s Quest technology, you
find that your engine flips. You go from having a body that
requires sugar and carbs for energy, to having a body that instead burns
the excess fat that we travel with. And this causes you to dramatically
improve your health. If you find these ideas interesting,
