Biography
I am an avid educator first and foremost. My love of food and physical movement are my vehicle to help enrich the lives of others. When I was a boy, my father weighed 400lbs. I loved him very much (he died at the age of 61 due to his lifestyle), but even then I knew I wanted a different life than he was living. I enjoyed eating alot and realized that I needed to balance this with physical activity or I would be following in my father's footsteps. I began to watch more closely what he was doing and began reading alot about nutrition. Overtime, I incorporated changes in my nutrition that focused on fruits and vegetables, was fairly low-fat, but still had substantial calories. These changes allowed me to excel at school sports. Over the years I have explored incorporating differing nutritional strategies (high protein, low-carb ketosis, high fat, paleo, vegan, etc.). I have even been able to see these trends come and go more than once. What I have learned is the most valuable of all and that is there is no one "diet" for everyone or only one "diet" that is best for an individual throughout their lives. There are some basic nutritional principles that need to be followed to stay healthy, but how you achieve those can vary significantly between individuals or over time. I am always focused on giving my clients straightforward information that they can use today. I deliver it in a way that helps them work through the unique circumstances they find themselves in without the stress of following a "this is the only way" approach. I look forward to working with you!
