Avoid These & Dodge Weight Gain During Holidays

The Holidays are upon us and stress levels may be at an all-time high as well as the temptation to eat bad foods. Many find that they have a bit more than usual on their daily “to do” plate and find themselves skipping meals and gym time while eating on the run. 6pm now feels like 10pm because of the shorter days and lack of sunshine leads many with a lack of Vitamin D and feeling a bit tired and having a slight case of the blues.

Toledo’s Pan-Asian Grille – Balance: A Top Choice to Eat Healthy

Essentially all my life, I have been a health-conscious person always carefully deciding what to put in my mouth to feed my body. When I say all my life, I mean literally all my life since I was a small child. At the age of 6, I was already becoming a pretty competitive little wrestler and while wanting to be the best and maintain weight for my class, I would always make the leanest and healthiest choices I knew (or thought) to be the best for me at the time.

Even my own mother and father would get many laughs at how I would not have any interest in McDonalds or any greasy fast food while out and about, but would express interest in eating real food at home.

Now, Coconut Oil is Bad? What Will Change Tomorrow? Confused…

The way I see it, confusing the public on eating correctly has been done to a degree, on purpose to accommodate interests of the food and animal agricultural industry and their profits with complete neglect to what is really the best way to eat healthy.

“Roger, What Exactly Do You Do?”

I get this question all the time and have for last several years. So much and, with so much confusion, I felt I had to write about it to give a better explanation to those inquiring minds that want to know. It’s expected from those that don’t know me or just meeting me initially, and we all ask this question of most we meet for first time at some point. I also know the majority of those that have known me for a long time are still very confused and don’t want to sound “dumb” or inattentive if they were to ask me. Read more
