The Tony Robbins 10 Day Health Challenge A big part of what Tony Robbins proposes is based around health, nutrition and fitness. At his flagship live event, Unleash the Power Within he dedicated the whole of the last day to health - and finishes by setting his Ten Day Challenge. The premise of the Ten Day Challenge is to heed the following advice: - Vital Breathing Learn the breathing techniques that increase your aerobic capacity, boost your energy and detoxify your lymph system - Living Waters and Live Food Ensure that you consume at least three litres of quality, alkaline water per day and that 70% of food consumed is alkalising and high-water content - Aerobic Power Exercise aerobically at least six times over the next ten-days and experience the massive boost in energy that aerobic power brings - Maximum Nourishment Learn how to give your body the gift of total nourishment through nutrition, planning and rest - A Directed Mind Learn how to set goals effectively, plan your time and limit the stress and worry in your life. Experience the power of questions - Structural Support Build sufficient rest, relaxation and sunshine into your life and your daily routine - Eliminate Excess (Bad) Fats and Oils Develop an understanding of the difference between good fats and bad fats and the huge difference that these oils can play in your life - Eliminate Animal Flesh Create effective strategies for limiting the amount of meat that you consume and understand the role that animal flesh plays in your life - Eliminate Milk, Cheese, Dairy Products Experience the increase in health that eliminating dairy can have. Learn effective strategies for becoming vegan - Eliminate Acid Addictions Learn the difference between acid and alkaline foods and develop a plan to help you to alkalise and energise! Take the 10-Day Challenge Recent studies show that 95% of diets fail, yet the U.S. alone spends more than $33 billion on weight-loss programs and health foods each year. If you’ve ever tried losing weight, you might agree that the hardest part of sticking to any diet or fitness plan is staying motivated long enough to see results. From his experience working with more than three million people in 80 countries, Tony has identified this pattern among those struggling to lose weight. He created the 10-Day Challenge to help people make lasting change in their bodies. Based on his 10 Fundamentals of Living Health for creating vitality, health and energy, the Challenge advises vital breathing, drinking large quantities of water, exercising, eating proper food combinations, avoiding animal flesh, dairy products and acid- forming foods, and reducing intake of processed fats—for a minimum of ten days. Tony believes that the incredible power and vitality participants experience during this trial phase will inspire permanent life change. Cindy Rold, an Anthony Robbins Master Elite Coach, can attest to this. After attending Unleash the Power Within, she felt empowered to take on Tony’s Challenge. For the next 10 days, the temptation of parties and a big camping trip tested her resolve, but Cindy stuck to her commitment, and her efforts paid off. In addition to jumpstarting a 30-pound weight loss, the Challenge enhanced Cindy’s self-image and dramatically increased her energy level, inspiring her to adopt Tony’s 10 Fundamentals permanently. “I like the way I look. I like my energy level. And I just am committed to never gaining that weight again,” said Cindy. Here are three tips Cindy gives for sticking to your healthy new lifestyle: 1. Get creative and try new foods. Cindy’s biggest challenge in implementing the 10 Fundamentals was finding an alternative to her traditional breakfast of cereal or toast. Instead of switching immediately to salad, she eased the transition by drinking vegetable smoothies for breakfast. Now, Cindy eats toast occasionally, but she’ll top it with tomatoes and avocados instead of butter or jelly. “I told myself, ‘I can do this. I can be resourceful and creative. I don’t have to be in the little box,’” said Cindy. 2. Choose activities that meet multiple needs. Cindy has always enjoyed walking, so it was easy for her to incorporate this type of exercise into her daily ritual. “A few things motivate me: my dog needs a walk, it is nice to be outside in the sunshine and fresh air, and then there is the knowledge that I’m maintaining my fitness level and my energy level,” said Cindy. 3. Use empowering language. One of the biggest differences between the Challenge and Cindy’s previous health resolutions was her use of incantations, or empowering phrases uttered repeatedly, with absolute intensity. “For me, this is the crux of it. I believe that it was the incantations that made the difference,” said Cindy. “I know that is why I really lost the weight.” Some of us may use a simple phrase like “I will run another mile” to get us over that hump. Cindy’s primary incantation was “I am a vibrant, healthy, sexy woman.” As she said the words, she would swing her hips, feeling vibrant, healthy and sexy. She also repeated “I make great decisions about my health and fitness,” standing squarely, with conviction. For the past two years, Cindy has maintained her weight loss, owning and building on the life changes she has made since taking the 10-Day Challenge.
