A health enthusiast has revealed how he transformed his body and mind after trying to be ‘the healthiest person in the world’ for a week.

Chris Dixon, from Jersey, in the Channel Islands, told his 4.98 million YouTube subscribers that he would implement a new NHS-recommended meal and training plan for seven days to try to improve his overall health and extend his life.

Meanwhile, he also tried intermittent fasting and meditation to encourage mindfulness and explained, “I’m going to perfect my diet, exercise, sleep and mental health etc. this week.”

Despite eating more throughout the week, Chris revealed that he had lost 1 kg over the seven-day period and said his mood had increased, explaining, ‘I enjoyed this week. My mood was very good. ‘

In the video, Chris revealed how he felt motivated to carry out the project after undergoing a body transformation a year and a half ago.

He explained, “After doing my body transformation a year and a half ago, I decided that instead of putting so much effort into making myself look good, I’d rather invest my happiness and mental health.”

He used the NHS-recommended meal plan for each meal and used the U.S. government’s My Day planner to determine how much of each food category he should eat each day.

Following health diet and exercise recommendations, Chris measured each meal with a cup.

Is intermittent fasting good for you?

A study in December 2019 found that intermittent fasting can help you live longer and improve your overall health.

While many fad diets, such as keto, have proven unsustainable or even, in some cases, harmful, intermittent fasting generally hold up to scientific testing.

Intermittent fasting diets generally fall into two categories: daily, time-bound diets, which shorten eating times to 6-8 hours a day, and so-called 5: 2 intermittent fasting, where people limit themselves to one medium meal two days a week.

According to a recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, the benefits of intermittent fasting include improvements in “glucose control, blood pressure, and heart rate.”

In the study, Johns Hopkins University neuroscientist Dr. Mark Mattson writes that intermittent fasting may help with many health problems such as obesity, diabetes, mellitus, cardiovascular disease and cancers.

In the meantime, he also tried intermittent fasting, a diet with a period of eating and fasting.

He tried the 16/8 method, which means your eating period spans 8 hours, while your fasting spans 16 hours every day.

The YouTuber also dumped alcohol for the week-long project.

In addition to the dietary changes, Chris exercised 45 minutes of exercise five days a week according to the NHS recommendations.

He alternated between different activities, starting with golf on Sunday, running on Monday, surfing on Tuesday, jogging on Wednesday and football on Friday.

He also looked at the NHS Recommendation for Maintaining Good Mental Health, which includes five main points: connecting with other people, exercising, learning new skills, giving to others, and practicing mindfulness.

He then added a 30-minute body scan to his routine, making sure to pay attention to moments we usually do on ‘autopilot’, such as eating and showering.

The YouTuber introduced a sleep regimen and strived to keep it closed between 7am and 9am every night.

At the end of the week, Chris had lost 1 kg and thought about being the ‘healthiest person in the world’.

“I really enjoyed the week in terms of life choices and what I was doing,” he said, discussing the different activities he had tried.

He said he certainly felt happier as a result of regularly practicing mindfulness and various physical activities.

“In the future, I’m going to have less sugar, less salt, more whole wheat, less alcohol, less fun,” he quipped.
