  • “Cooking classes for me are interesting.”
  • “[Jae] is a very nice guy.”
  • “Paul is an authentic person, he’s not trying to sell you anything…. He’s not trying to convince you of anything else besides being healthy, he’s very sincere and a very easygoing person.”
  • “Dinner is the best part in the retreat and the food is delicious.”

Aidan Waine on the Perfect Health Retreat

Aidan Waine of Redmond, WA was a guest at the May 2015 Perfect Health Retreat. Aidan kindly recorded a video for us discussing his experience at the retreat.

Some highlights:

  • “I’ve been trying to come to the retreat for a year and a half now … I actually read the first book
  • “[The retreat’s] been fabulous, yeah, really good.”
  • “The houses and the sea and the weather and the sound and everything has all exceeded our expectation.”
  • “[The best part of the retreat] is access to Paul.”
  • “Paul is very humorous and very patient…. A real boffin.”
  • [The food] has been fabulous.”
  • “I was a little bit worried tell you the truth the idea that you don’t eat for 16 hours a day. That seemed to be a bit of impediment, it’s something I never managed to achieve at home, I’ve read about how good intermittent fasting is meant to be but done it only when I had a bad hangover, frankly, previously. So I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but I’m eating a lot, I’m eating a lot at lunch time and a lot at dinner time, but having said that I know that I’ve taken my belt in a notch, one inch, without any extremes of hunger.”
  • “Most of the people are here to learn…. Everybody’s very very open, friendly. It’s been very gratifying.”
  • “I’ve taken [exercise classes] easy and there’s been no pressure to take it [harder] … I must say over four or five days of exercising I can do more than I could on Monday.”
  • “Absolutely yeah [I’d recommend the retreat] … I would love for all my family to come, my immediate and extended family…. I’m expecting to proselytize a little.”
  • “Do it.”

Thank you Aidan!

Jeff Nobbs on the Perfect Health Retreat

Jeff Nobbs of Houston, Texas was a guest at the May 2015 Perfect Health Retreat. Jeff kindly recorded a video for us discussing his experience at the retreat.

Some highlights:

  • “Read Paul’s book, loved it … Perfect Health Diet was the first book I read where I put it down and said, ‘yes, this is it!’ Everythign was backed up by scientific literature and made perfect sense…. I saw the health retreat and as soon as I saw it said, ‘I got to go to this.’”
  • “I’ve been enjoying myself a lot. Perfect location, it’s been perfect weather apart from one rainy day, all the people here are really great, learning a lot, and it’s a good mix of kind of the basics helping with the foundations, and the nitty gritty of the science.”
  • “[Science classes] are my favorite part. When the science classes end I’m always upset.”
  • “I really appreciate that Paul takes the time to explain why all of his advice makes sense.”
  • “[Food is] my second favorite part after the science classes. Food is really great.”
  • “[Exercise classes] are good… We’ve had a good mix of classes … All the trainers seem to pick exercises where for the people who are in good shape they’re still very strenuous and they get you in good shape, for the people who are not in good shape they still allow you to actually do those exercises and not risk injury.”
  • “[The setting] really forces you to get your 7 to 10 thousand steps a day walking from house to house, and sunlight walking from house to house. It’s sort of like a healthy real world…. The setting’s perfect.”
  • “I also overpacked. I’m just wearing basketball shorts every day.… You can dress casually thoughout the day.”
  • “You see Shou-Ching and Paul and the trainers around all the time, there’s plenty of time to get your questions answered.”
  • “One of my biggest takeaways is how important circadian rhythm entrainment is.”
  • “I think it paid for itself in the first day. You learn one really important thing, whether that’s how to talk to your doctor, how to do circadian rhythm entrainment right, what to eat what not to eat, nutrition, what to cook, you know you learn one meal that becomes a go-to meal for you and it pays for itself because you can use it for the rest of your life and what’s more important than your health.”

Thank you Jeff!
