NZ health guru on tour with secrets to living to 100

NZ health guru on tour with secrets to living to 100

One of New Zealand's leading health guru's and best selling authors Jason Shon Bennett has been taking his seminar Eat Less, Live Long around New Zealand on a national tour during May 2014 and will be wrapping up his tour with a celebration style event in Auckland on May 29th 2014.

Jason Shon Bennett is a health researcher, mentor and author and has been highly acclaimed for his study of the world's 'centenarians' in order to discover the key to the prevention of modern lifestyle diseases and living a long and healthy life.

After writing on his studies for over eight years in his spare time, Jason's very first book, Eat Less, Live Long was released at the end of March 2014 and is already in the top ten selling non-fiction titles nationwide. The national speaking tour is based around the principles that are discussed in the book.

"People generally want to be healthier and live a longer life with fewer ailments, but there are so many conflicting health messages out there," says Bennett. "However, there are many studies on the centenarians of the world – those who live to 100 or more with health and vitality and there are clearly some key common threads in their lifestyle and diet, which is the focus of what I teach".

"The core of my seminars is to teach New Zealanders how to make simple diet and lifestyle changes that have been proven to make a massive difference to how you age, how long you live, how healthy you are, how much energy you have and how well you look," says Bennett.

During the seminar tour Jason will also discuss his study of genetics and genetic expression, the concept of Regular Intelligent Fasting® and the secrets centenarians­ - How the world's oldest people are also the world's healthiest people and what we can learn from them.

Jason's Shon Bennett's seminar tour will be wrapping up in Auckland on the 29th of May and a special 'celebration style' event at the Centennial Theater.
