Eat Less, Eat Right – Your Success Depends On It


Tom Corley boats - crop

I’ve written extensively about the Rich Habit of eating less and eating healthy because I discovered in my Rich Habits Study, that’s what rich people do. Rich people exercise almost every day, moderate how much they eat almost every day and eat healthy, almost every day. With respect to eating less, the sweet spot for men is somewhere between 1,900 calories to 2,200 calories a day. For women, it is somewhere between 1,600 to 1,900 calories per day.

Since I completed my study, I’ve been on a sort of quest to find out why eating less and eating right is so important to accumulating wealth. I thought I’d share some of that new research with you, since it will impact your ability to succeed in life.

CALERIE is a brand new 2-year study on the health effects of reducing how much you eat each day.  In this study, 218 people were split into two groups. Group #1 ate what they pleased. Group #2 cut their calories by 12%. Group #2 saw a 10% reduction in overall body weight. Group #2 was able to maintain that weight loss for 2 years (the length of the study). Group #2 saw a 4% reduction in blood pressure, a 6% reduction in cholesterol and a 47% reduction in C-Reactive Protein, a protein that causes heart disease. The conclusion of this study was that eating less reduced chronic disease and increased your life expectancy.

In another study done by Valter Longo, director of the University of Southern California’s Longevity Institute, he found that a 34% – 54% drop in daily calories reduced blood sugar and IGF-1, a growth hormone. Reduced levels of blood sugar are associated with reduced risk of Type II Diabetes. Reduced levels of IGF-1 extend the life of cells in our body. In this study, they also found that eating too much protein can dramatically increase the incidence of cancer by 400%. The conclusion of this study was that eating less and eating right reduced chronic disease and increased your life expectency.

The main take away here is to eat less and eat right. If you eat right and keep your calories down, you’ll live a longer, healthier life. A longer, healthier life increases your odds of realizing your dreams and achieving your goals. It’s much harder to realize your dreams and achieve your goals if you’re chronically ill or dead. Get healthy, your success depends on it.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
