From the desk of Sherif Kamal:
Like most fitness athletes I grew up trying all the diets and whey protein supplements that you see on the shelves of your local gym. I also learned all the basic programs that go with them that are suppose to build your muscles in 90 days. I thought at the time that in order to get in shape and get ripped that I should work out and do what everyone around me was doing. I also worked and was advised by every trainer to eat pretty much what everyone around me was eating. Guess what? Years went by and as I got older I started getting more or less the same results that everyone else was getting NONE!
I can tell you that by the time I reached my late twenties my training began to become less effective and I started to lose my shape.I gained 33 pounds of waste and my body felt and looked worn out. My first assumption was my metabolism was slowing down. Genetically I always had a very cut physique and I growing up I was extremely active in sports and fitness. I compete amateur boxer and did martial arts for years. But for some reason my genetics wasn’t helping me enough anymore. I noticed my energy levels getting lower and my day to day stress getting higher. I also started walking around with a tire around my waste. This was not the body and state of health I was comfortable with.
At that point it occurred to me that I needed to start questioning my lifestyle and the way I was living my life. In 2007 after graduating as an engineer I went and got certified as a personal trainer. I attempted to learn more about the body and training to whip myself back into shape. I even increased the level of my training, but nothing really changed for me. So I decided to start studying the science behind all the theories of training and nutrition. All my life I had a fascination with nature and its perfection. I focused my research on a natural health approach and tried to fuse it with all the mainstream theories behind bodybuilding, synthetic supplements and nutrition. I started learning about human longevity, anatomy, vegetarianism, power fasting, herbalism, and Raw Food diets. I did this while experimenting with my body and my training. I realized from my studies how much waste I was accumulating in my body and how that was directly affecting all the hard work I was putting in the gym. From all the healthy lifestyle that I studied I found raw food making the most sense.
The first benefit I noticed after cleansing my body slowly and eating more complete raw foods was my energy increased dramatically. I also noticed my mental focus, strength and recovery time all improving. I started to realize that the strategies I was implementing were working. By incorporating raw foods I started looking better and feeling better from within. I also realized how destructive the approach I used to follow at the gym was for building muscle. If you’re too busy trying to build muscles then there is a good chance you will over look the fact that a lot of those synthetic products destroy the liver, intestines, heart and bones in your body. Becoming Raw and the lifestyle that goes with it is a completely different world free from all the scams and get fit quick schemes. Ultimately it gave me control over what I put in my body and made me feel a lot more balanced mentally and physically.
A holistic approach to getting healthy helps you connect more with your body and how it works. After all my studies and road to becoming raw I have developed an approach that will help optimize the way you build your body. I have created The Body Temple to help you incorporate intense focused weight training strategies with a raw food lifestyle.
