VGP Episode 004 The ketogenic diet (keto), key to Cancer Prevention & Healthy Living

Episode 004 of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast is a reintroduction of sorts. The show’s host Rick Cruz talks about the show’s new tagline which is Business, Finance and lifestyle optimization.  The word optimization actually means the action of making the best or most effective use of a situation or resource. The podcast is a road map for success in those key areas. The road map is not provided by Rick Cruz but provided by respected experts in related fields. The advice of respected leaders is then utilized by Rick Cruz as part of his social experiment and shared in the podcast.  Every day we receive all kinds of advice on business, finance, and lifestyle on-line, and most of us do not have time to research or execute on those ideas.  This podcast is about the execution of those suggested strategies, and you the audience have a front row seat to that endeavor. The timing of the podcast is being synchronized with Biltmore Records website updates and the release of new music that will also be available on iTunes.  Episode 4 of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast also referenced THE MODEL HEALTH SHOW with Shawn Stevenson. ( We suggested that our audience subscribes to that podcast, and lock in Dr. Joseph Mercola’s website; as well.  The article discussed on WEB MD’s involvement with Monsanto pharmaceutical can be found on as well (  We will always do our best to provide our audience with valuable information that they can incorporate into their lives, and that information will be applied by Rick Cruz first as your human Business, Finance, and Lifestyle Ginni pig.  Welcome to the Verbal Graffiti Podcast Episode 004.


This episode is the last of the first three shows recorded in March of 2016. In this episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast, we began to comment on the book titled “The Power Of Broke” by Daymond John. It is the first book being reviewed by our Book Klub and we are currently offering FREE Books to anyone who wants to join this gang of book reading hoodlums.  Obviously, this is all in fun but one of the goals of this Podcast is to encourage our community to read at least one book a month, which equates to 20 or 30 minutes a day. We will select a new book every month and give a brief review of each book twice within a 30-day cycle. Anyone wishing to join can do so by sending us an email to There will be a limited monthly supply so if interested you would want to be among our first responders.  A future goal of the Podcast is to give out books selected by the Book Klub to local Schools in order to encourage kids to read suggested books and participate in the Book Klub!

Additionally, we discussed the Hood Morning America Wake up Challenge! That’s simply the creation of daily habits or routines initiated every morning aimed at increasing productivity and vitality throughout the day. The first challenge is to drink 16 ounces of water immediately after you wake up in the morning.  Studies have shown that there are many Health Benefits to drinking water as soon as you wake up and we agree that doing this will not only provide a revitalization of energy, but it was also jump started your metabolism. Please keep in mind that drinking water is only the first challenge, we will add on new challenges with every episode to creating the optimal step by step morning routine.

In this podcast, we also released a new song titled Again! The song is promoting a healthy lifestyle and just maybe the theme music for the show, who knows! It’s just a lil’ something that Rick Cruz had in his archives but you got to admit that beat is hot! Also, make sure to check out other news and updates from Biltmore Records! We will talk to you again soon.
