Oliver Luke (Oli) lives near Manchester, England and runs Scribble Mail, the UK’s largest handwritten mail company. He’s a (very) busy young man and has always been interested in improving himself on every level.
At age 18, Oli went vegetarian, knowing that not only was there a connection between the food he ate and his health, but also that what was on the end of his fork had wider implications beyond himself.
Oli was introduced to Intelligent Eating through a presentation on “The State of Health in the UK”, which focused on the disconnect between the level of healthcare in the UK and the rates of disease, compared to health in poorer less developed nations without such ‘good’ healthcare systems. At this point Oli, was intrigued and began following Intelligent Eating, predominantly through social media and then direct interaction.
“Absolutely, I’ve been vegetarian since the age of 18 and always been aware of my food, certainly more than most people my age, but the awareness Intelligent Eating gave me was astounding! I made the transition to a plant based diet, and quite frankly, haven’t looked back! My energy has increased, I’m happier, healthier, my business has never been so good, and I even do a day a month at an animal sanctuary. For me, Intelligent Eating has given me a massive feeling of empowerment and I feel in harmony with myself and the environment – I have never been so happy!”
With such comprehension about food, food marketing, and acute knowledge about the direct relationship between his diet and health, Oli is a prime candidate for addition to the squaring of the mortality curve, that is, he will likely live a very long and happy life, passing on at well over 100 years of age, as opposed to becoming diseased for his last 2 decades of life, as with much of the general western population.
