David Kirsch - Top tips and Giveaway


David Kirsch is one of my long-standing clients and the man whose face I see in my head when I'm deciding between the cheeseburger and the salad on the menu. Yes, I still pick the burger sometimes - but not as often - I swear.

I picked his amazing, inspiring brain for his Top Tips for health. 

This is the man that the likes of Heidi Klum, Liv Tyler and Anne Hathaway call when they want to work out. He's clearly doing something right! Over to the Man of Steel:

What are the 3 worst things you can do for/to your body?

1. Smoke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cigarette smoking kills one in five people in the United States each year, yet it's the most preventable cause of death. I believe this is the hands-down worst, yet most avoidable, thing you can do to your body. (I love him for this alone - CH)
2. Skip exercise. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of aerobic exercise five days a week. This doesn't mean you have to hit the gym for an intense training session, even a brisk afternoon walk has a positive impact on your physical and mental health. It's not just about exercising to look good; this is exercising to keep your body healthy and your heart strong.
3. Not eating healthily. Obesity is a global epidemic. To stay fit and healthy, avoid what I call the “bad three”: sugar, saturated fat, and fast food.

What are the 3 best things you can do for optimal health?

1. Exercise daily. Just like the worst thing you can do is skip exercise, the best thing you can do is make time for it daily. Try waking up and exercising first thing in the morning, before the weight of the day becomes too much and you feel like skipping the gym or your evening jog. Exercise with a friend if you fear you won’t have time to work out and have an active social life – it’s much more productive than going out for a beer and you’ll enjoy it just as much.
2. Eat healthily. It’s important to eat balanced, healthful meals from the five food groups – protein, fruits, veggies, grains and legumes and dairy. If weight loss is your issue, then I tell my clients to follow my A,B,C’s – no Alcohol, Bread or processed Carbs. I also tell them to keep it lean, clean and green. No artificial ingredients, lots of leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale, and lean protein like fish or chicken. And, remember to drink lots of water.
3. Be happy. The happiest people are the healthiest people. Do what makes you happy, whether it’s running, riding a bike, knitting, you name it. The thing that makes me the happiest is spending time with my daughters, and I can always make time for that.

What are the 3 best exercises for those of us with busy lifestyles?

The best exercises you can do are planks and push-ups, squats, and walking. These 4 (I couldn't pick just 3!) will work your whole body, can be done “anywhere, anytime” and can be done by all fitness levels.

What are your Top 3 products (from DK range) for Women – in particular those of us that are apparently the ‘most stretched generation’ – concern for/looking after our older parents – and looking after small children (ME)?

1. My Vitamin Mineral Powder. Think of those daily multi-vitamins you used to take – my Vitamin Mineral Super Juice is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, plus, it contains superior natural source antioxidants like spirulina, acerola berry, coral calcium and CoEnzyme Q10. 
David’s Super Juice is your daily multivitamin plus!
2. My AM Daily Detox. There's no healthier way to start your day then to “cleanse” your body from free radicals that can wreak havoc on your skin and organs, and to protect your cells from further damage.
This formula uses the health benefits of red wine grapes, 10 different berries, Lycopene, Resveratrol and Pycnogenol®, and is an immensely rich source of antioxidants that works to remove toxins, disarm free radicals and combat oxidative damage to the cells and skin.
3. My Super Charged Greens Blend. An incredibly nutrient-rich source of fiber, probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes and antioxidants derived from high alkaline vegetables, fruits, grasses and grains, this is an essential supplement for digestive health and a strong immune system.



My personal favourite product is David's B12 spray. I have one on my desk, one at my bedside and one in my bag. You could say I'm obsessed. It's the perfect pick-me-up when you need energy - fast. 


I've stolen been offered five to giveaway to you, the loveliest of readers. Just 'like' David's Facebook page and leave me a comment below with your contact details/twitter handle. That's it. 

  • Giveaway open until Sunday 30th June.
  • UK/Ireland only.
  • 5 winners will be picked at random by David's team.
  • DK is one of my clients -as I've said - but I am not receiving payment for this giveaway - my idea. I do like a freebie for my readers. :)

    P.S - Please expect a whole bunch of queries coming your way. I recently found your blog via pixiwoo and have been catching up on all your entries since the very beginning. I even have a "Caroline says yes/no" list for when I replenish my skincare products. Also, thank you so much for doing what you do. I find that there are bazillions of blogs/vlogs etc dedicated to cosmetics but few that involve skincare, and even fewer that skip all the hype and talk straight like you do. So thank you again. Best wishes from India.

  57. What I'd give to pick his brains! I wonder if he's got any tips for keeping up water intake, I've recently lost a lot of weight but it's the one thing that I just don't have the motivation for. I'll drink a ton of it in the morning before/during/after working out but after I've cooled down it slips my memory completely. Just need an evian-shaped boot up the bum maybe...
    Amazingly written post by the way, ususally interviews are hard to follow. Hope you're having a lovely weekend despite the crappy weather. :)

  86. This David Kirsch's B12 spray seems like an answer to my prayers for something natural that would give you a boost when you need it most while hiking. I'm going to Dolomites next month (and my fitness level isn't amazing), and was pondering whether to get some energy tablets (glucose and caffeine) or stock up on choccy bars (loads of sugar). This spray would be just a God send :).

  112. Great tips and wanted to add my own 2 cents on smoking increasing WRINKLES! Yes, smoking will slightly increase your metabolism and suppress appetite but at what expense? Lung cancer and other health issues! But another devil of smoking that some ladies don't realize is that it INCREASES wrinkles. Female smokers always come up to me asking how to reduce wrinkles? Step one...put down the CIGS sis.
