One Man's Answer to the Health Care Crisis: Develop Extreme Fitness

DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, STOVE PIPE WELLS, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Sekerak, the "super-fit vegan" and author of Extreme Minimalist Fitness, will hike 40 miles per day through California's Death Valley National Park subsisting on only raw fruit and water. Starting September 5, 2009, Sekerak hikes from Stove Pipe Wells to a mile marker 20 miles away and returns along the same route to demonstrate the superior level of fitness attained through his program, Extreme Minimalist Fitness.

"My approach works," Sekerak said. "I'm living proof. I went from a fast food addict to someone who can hike 40 miles a day through the desert."

Sekerak's journey from fast food addict to super fit vegan began as he neared his 40(th) birthday. A weight lifter and former worker aboard an Alaskan fishing trawler, Sekerak was no stranger to manual labor and exercise but experienced minor health complaints. After spending years and a lot of money on medications and supplements, he discovered the power of eating uncooked fruits and vegetables and developed his minimalist approach to fitness.

"I am in better shape now than I was at age 25," Sekerak said. "Some of that is due to intense exercise -- and a lot of it from raw foods."

Many who doubt the claims of vegetarians, vegans and raw foodists can only look at Sekerak's levels of energy and fitness and wonder.

"There's absolutely no way I could be in this kind of shape eating burgers and fries," he says. "I'm not saying you've got to eat 100% fruit to be healthy. But increasing your intake of raw fruits and vegetables while still eating some of your favorite foods is a good way to go. I show people EXACTLY how to do this in my book without going hungry."

Sekerak embarks from Stove Pipe Wells, California at 4 a.m. on September 5, 2009. He will hike 40 miles each day through Death Valley National Park for five consecutive days. He will consume nothing but fresh fruit and water each day on his hike.
