Not so long ago, Scott Joseph was overweight and fed up. After trying every diet under the sun with dismal results, he tried the chimp food diet (his own invention) based on the principal that if animals that share most of our DNA seem to be in much better shape than we are, we can probably learn something from them.
“Chimps just eat fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and they get all the nutrition they need,” says Joseph.
So he ditched meat, dairy & grains and ate nothing but fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. The results were so impressive - he lost 100lbs and felt incredible in a matter of weeks - that he decided to bottle his success.
Four months after launch, his 290-calorie 16oz high-pressure-processed Chimp Food bottles - which retail at around $5.99 and contain a blend of 25 different berries, fruits (including the seeds, peel and stems), vegetables (including the skin), nuts and seeds - are now available in around 40 outlets in the Florida area.
But this is not about juicing or cleansing, he clarifies. The products are packed with fiber and other bits juice makers ditch, and they won’t send your blood sugar into the stratosphere.
