Your Mentor

& Coach

A Mentor is someone who sees more

Talent and Ability within You, than you see in yourself,

And helps to bring it out of YOU!”

-Bob Proctor

If you are reading this book, I am acting as your Coach and Mentor. As a Coach/Mentor, I am very honest; I do not hold back, I do not tell you what you want to hear so you will like me. Only in my opinion, these actions would only set you up to fail.

I might ruffle your feathers a bit, but do not take it personally, it is not a personal attack on you, your lifestyle or character. I am here to help. I am here to guide you. Through this, I am honest like a best friend would be to you.

Lets do this together! Lets get moving!


The old adage:

Doing the same things every day and

expecting different results is the definition of insanity’.

This is especially true with your health.

The great news is a few small changes in your daily habits and routines can lead to massive results!

Scott duPont

I was introduced to Chad about 7 years ago by a mutual friend and ended up running into him on a regular basis over the years. There was one gap between times I saw Chad and when I saw him after a year lapse, I had to do a double take. The person I was looking at had Chad's voice and Chad’s facial features (although much narrower cheeks, etc.) and looking at him looking further it was impossible not to notice Chad had shed almost 30 pounds! Being a health advocate myself, I smiled and said: “Chad Napier…Is that you? Congratulations! What happened to you and what did you do?” In addition to a drastic change in physical appearance, I immediately noticed Chad exuded an intangible energy and aura that you've probably noticed in extremely healthy, happy confident people. Chad replied: “I radically changed my diet. About a year ago, I decided to really make a commitment to eat healthy.” I believe that was the genesis for Chad's inspiring book.

When people ask me to contribute to, endorse, or promote their health book, website, product, or documentary film, I’m happy to do so under a few conditions:

  1. Is the author, inventor, or producer healthy himself? Is he or she ‘walking the walk’?

  2. Is the information and/or the message real and true?

  3. Is the message a lasting one, or is it a fad or trend?

  4. Finally, is it a simple message that makes common sense?

In Chad's case, he’s the real deal and he started from the
very place most Americans find themselves. Not necessarily obese, not necessarily sick, but in the ‘social norm’ of being a few pounds overweight and plodding through life. I look at Chad now (after his complete transformation several years ago) as a fit, healthy, energetic, positive person who consistently lives his message everyday. Chad originally wrote this book to share his message to help people, not for the money. Without giving away the “juicy” parts inside this book, his information and message can be summed up by starting your day with a 100% natural, nutritious meal (smoothie). Chad also makes the important point that a healthy smoothie is only as healthy as the fresh, all-natural fruits and vegetables YOU put in it. Not some processed “smoothie beverage” with added ingredients, packaged & shipped to your local 7-11 or grocery store where it’s been sitting on the shelf for days or weeks. I've been enjoying smoothies as my breakfast of choice for over 20 years and Chad's critically important message conveyed in the title “A Smoothie a Day Keeps the Doctor Away” is true. One’s health is the consistency of your daily choices. So many people try a supplement, try a magic juice potion, try a fad diet, or switch to some special new regimen, only to be let down after a few weeks. Chad is well educated about nutrition and health and when he finally made the decision several years ago to instill this daily habit (as well as other healthy habits), it changed his life forever. Chad himself, his books, and his blogs have made a positive difference in many people’s lives and hopefully the new version of this book will reach many more including you if you follow his advice!

It’s an honor for me to endorse this book and Chad's sincere message. If you get a chance to meet Chad or hear him

speak, you’ll know first hand that he not only transformed himself, but he is on a mission to transform others to also be able to enjoy a healthy, happy, energetic life.
