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. If my mom wasn’t cooking, I was grabbing a can of tuna fish and vegetables and making my dinner with it. I know, not normal and very odd for a young kid to be doing this.  Read more

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. As I once heard from Dr. Andrew Saul; “Good health makes sense but doesn’t make a lot of dollars”.

Eating healthy can be easy if you keep it simple: If it grows out of the ground, off a tree, lives off the land or in the sea then you can say to yourself “this is probably good for me”. If, however it comes in a box, bag or frozen package and is made in a factory then it probably is not good for you. Read more

“Roger, What Exactly Do You Do?”

I get this question all the time and have for last several years. So much so and, with 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

Be Accountable for Your Fat Loss Efforts

Living in the “microwave” society that craves instant gratification that we do today, it is more common than not to see people looking for a shortcut or an easy way to achieve their weight loss goals.

4×4 Cancer Rules

When we think of the “C” word, it brings feelings of helplessness, anger, frustration, confusion and hurt just to name a few. Of course the “C” word I’m referencing to isn’t canker sores, calluses or the common cold, I’m talking about cancer.

Cancer is a topic of discussion that really hits home for me, as I assume it does for many reading this. I have been to the funeral home 3 times alone in the last 3 months to pay my final respects to those that lost their battle to this dreadful killer. In addition, within the last 6 months I have learned that a client of mine came down with cancer, my dog and even my mother. I have lost too many family and friends to cancer over the last few years and it doesn’t seem to be going away or getting better anytime soon. Read more
