Legendary health and nutrition guru Jack LaLanne just died on January 23, 2011. He was referred to the godfather of fitness and was the first person to really bring health, exercise and nutrition into everyday life. Jack was all about fitness and nutrition before it was actually an industry and was published or on TV starting in 1951. Check this out.....he opened the US's first fitness gym in Oakland, invented a number of exercise machines, including leg-extension and pulley devices. Jack is probably best recognized for his Juicer commercials over the last 20 years.

How does this relate to ADD? Well, if only the medical world and all of us as individuals approached life with this proactive vision towards health and nutrition, we would all be better off with many medical ailments and challenges like ADD/ADHD. Think about how much an ADD'er is impacted by food and nutrition. Focus, concentration, temperament, listening, giving your brain and body health foods and the impact this has on us.

Jack LaLanne has had a profound and impactful influence on our society and we should all look at what he has accomplished and the message he has preached since he was 15 years old. Hey, Jack looked like a million bucks when he was young and when he was 96. Pretty hard to argue with a person about health and nutrition choices who lives a healthy life until the ripe old age of 96, don't ya think?
