“4Leaf for Life”—We’d like some feedback.


It’s time for our first ever online poll.

4Leaf ClockA little background. Our 4Leaf for Life concept was created in time to be included in Chapter 10 of our book which was published in October, 2011. We added the 4Leaf Survey to this website in March of 2012 and since that time the “Take the 4Leaf Survey” page has been viewed almost 4,000 times.

We’re still planning to create a smartphone app for this survey—just waiting for sufficient funding. We’ve received a ton of positive feedback about the 4Leaf concept and many of you have requested that it be automated.

Right now, we’d like to get some feedback. If you haven’t taken the survey, consider taking it now—takes less than three minutes.

  • For just the one-page survey form, click here (printer-friendly PDF)
  • For a little background and some instructions on the survey, click here.
  • You don’t need to print out the form, just make two columns on a piece of paper. One column for “plus” numbers (Questions 1-4) and one column for “minus” numbers (Questions 5-12).
  • Add up your two columns to compute your net score, which identifies your current 4Leaf level. This will definitely be easier when we get that app.

Today’s polls were the first for me. This is a handy tool and I expect to use it more in the future. As you know, my blog about Lance was somewhat controversial; it would be interesting to run this poll sometime next week—“Can you forgive Lance Armstrong?”

    Thanks, Jim, I’m definitely a solid 3Leaf and some weeks am up to 4. ; ) Nice motivating work!

    Yes, thanks to William for the very interesting Pritikin talk.

  2. Anne says:

    William, I also want to thank you for the video. I whole heartedly agree with Karen’s response to you. I too was not ready for the message in the 1980’s. As a result I was obeast for two decades going from diet to diet. Then came The China study and Jim’s book. There is no looking back.

  3. Karen Forster says:

    William – I just finished listening to Dr. McDougall’s interview with Nathan Pritikin and want to thank you for providing the link to this fascinating discussion. I also was a follower of Nathan Pritikin many years ago. At that time, however, I could not see giving up my coffee and meat. Thankfully I now know better. I have heard Dr. McDougall personally say that Nathan Pritikin was one of his mentors. It’s obvious that Dr. McDougall has come to the exact same conclusion as Pritikin did in the 1960’s and 1970’s and can back up his beliefs with more recent scientific studies. Thanks again!

  4. Sal Liggieri says:

    Pritikin, a remarkable man, a true visionary. Watching this video, it’s unbelievable how much knowledge he had about diet, nutrition, and world health statistics.

    I remember back in the 1970’s attending his seminar/lectures in New York City. I don’t remember how many but I remember they cost $200.

    My family thought I was a quack then and now forty years later they still think I’m a quack.

    From Pritikin and now to McDougall and still . . . America became a basket case.

  5. And for another good task for your readers, watch this 1982 = 31 years ago! — video:
    “Nathan Pritikin: A Casual Conversation with Dr. McDougall”
    NathanPritikin had it all figured out re the best nutrition to avoid and reverse our chronic diseases back in the 1960’s or so. Quite a saga of one person’s personal experience in healing himself and
    going on to heal others without being a credentialed “expert”!
    I bought his books back when they came out, plus I got AF Col. Ken Cooper’s “Aerobics” books back then.
    BETTER DIET AND BETTER EXERCISE EDUCATIONS AND RESULTS HAVE BEEN
    AROUND FOR YEARS!
