Hey GBRx’ers,

Did you ever watch the movie Ben-Hur?

The beloved version starring Charlton Heston as the title character was one of the most lavish epics in movie history.

And at the time, the set built for the chariot race was THE largest single set in movie history.

The arena, an accurate duplicate of an actual Roman stadium outside Jerusalem, was five stories tall and big enough to enclose a track 2000 feet long and 65 feet wide.

And there were actually two such tracks!

One built outside of camera range for the horses and riders to train and rehearse, and the other for the recorded scenes.

For the track surface, some 40,000 tons of white sand were imported from Mexico.

The arena cost $1 million to build (about $8.5M in today’s money) and spanned 18 acres on Cinecitta lot.

Some 10,000 extras appeared in the movie including 1,500 on any day that the chariot sequence needed a crowd in the stadium grandstands.

And for the race, 78 horses were imported from Yugoslavia and Sicily.

In total…

The production design included 1 million props, 100,000 costumes, and 300 sets that were built out of 1 million pounds of plaster and 40,000 cubic feet of lumber.

Throughout the shoot, the sets became a tourist attraction drawing some 25,000 visitors.

There were no serious injuries to people or animals on the 1959 film, but there was one casualty of executive producer Sam Z who die in Rome of a heart attack during the shoot (he was 54).

I can’t say what may have been the cause of that, but can only imagine the stress of having to deal with the hundreds and even thousands of logistical details would have been a nightmare!

But did you know, there’s actually a MUCH smaller movie “set” that has millions of logistical details going on at once.

It’s true, just magnify the level of logistics going on in the making of “Ben-Hur” and…

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
That’s what’s happening in YOUR body right now!
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Your body is like the biggest, busiest movie set you can imagine, and YOU are the director/producer!

And food is sort of like the “script” of the movie.

It tells the “actors” in our bodies how to perform.

When we eat, we’re delivering messages and orders to our bodies to do certain functions…

Do this.
Don’t do this.
Release this hormone.
Don’t release that one.
Express this protein.
Don’t express that one.

We’re essentially sending instructions that kick off a chemical chain letter.

It’s really quite amazing.

Each molecule of food contributes to a beautiful cascade of events, sending all kinds of signals throughout our bodies.

Make hormones! Trigger immune cells! Switch genes on and off! Tell the work crew to clean up and the builders to get on standby!

= = = = = = = = = = = =
Lights! Camera! Action!
= = = = = = = = = = = =

The problem is that due to a lack of knowledge most people tend to be lackluster directors/producers and give their body the wrong “movie script”…

AKA the wrong food which in turn provides the wrong signals to the body at the wrong times.

Leading to a total FAIL at the box office and in the case of our bodies, can lead to or worsen obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, joint pain and several other issues.

If you’re in your 60s, 70s, and even 80s…

There is still time to turn that storyline around and turn a FAIL at the box office into a “hit at the box office”!

“Ben-Hur” went on to generate $147 million world-wide, during its initial run. And then generated another $20 million from merchandising, including books, toys, candy, perfume, neckties, jewelry, gowns, chariot-shaped tricycles, and “Ben-Her” and “Ben-His” bathroom towels.

At the time, it was the second-highest grossing film ever, behind only “Gone With the Wind”, won a record 11 Academy awards, among several others.

If like Ben-Hur, you’d like to turn YOUR body into a “hit” and avoid it being a “flop” due to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, or joint pain…

All you need is a good storyline and movie script.
