Lots of people have asked about my thoughts on mammograms and breast care. First, if you have no idea if you have any family history of breast cancer or if you know people in your family who have died from breast cancer, get a genetic test to determine your level or risk. This can also be done on...

As I research and see things following a pattern, it is more and more apparent that the body was designed to heal itself. The research that I am doing, and is ongoing, shows that higher LDL cholesterol levels are due to a lack of physiological and chemical level needs. What I mean by that is that...

So, I am about to start a giant fight with people but let's talk about it. Calories in vs. calories out for fat and muscle levels is NOT all you have to worry about. Chemistry matters. Does the body respond to 2000 calories of lemonade the same way the body responds to 2000 calories of vodka? No,...

One of the most important mindset positions and struggles people go through is the balance between being content and complacent. It has developed into the saying that strives to be content but never complacent. This is a fine balancing act. On the one hand, you should be happy with what you have ...

I am seeing more anxiety and stress in my patients over the last few years. Yes, Covid is a thing, or was it a thing? Are we over that now with the Russia thing? I am not sure. On top of their normal lives, they worry. I have gone round and round trying to come up with a nice or soft way of sayin...

This quote is one of the reasons that I like Nietzsche. It goes back to the most important question of why. The quote is, “It is hard enough to remember my opinions without also remembering my reasons for them. “I talk about this a lot. The most important thing we can do is ask why. Asking all o...

One of the things that people ask the most about is weight loss. I have often said that I will not work on weight loss but will help with fat loss. I will not help with weight loss because it ties success and self-worth to a number on a scale and isn’t healthy or the proper way to view your goals...

I get asked about investing all the time, and I can tell you one of the best things you can ever invest in is your relationship with your spouse. Having a great home life can never be understated. If you have built a relationship with your spouse to the point that you are best friends, it will im...

Let’s talk about hormones for a second. What is a hormone? It is a chemical messenger that is made in the body to get the body to do certain things. For instance, testosterone is the healing hormone; it tells the body to repair and rebuild bones, muscles, blood vessels, and organs. Estrogen, also...

There are three types of bodies and the ectomorph is most notable for the person who can eat almost anything they want and not gain any weight. This sounds great from the fat standpoint; however, it also means it is tough to gain muscle. These individuals are generally long and appear to have lon...

I keep hearing that eating Keto is a fad, unhealthy, and unsustainable. If this is somehow keeping you from going Keto, if your somatotype needs it, do not listen to these people. It is super easy and tasty, and you can do it for a long time. Last week, I had ravioli, lasagna, ice cream with pean...

You might find this hard to believe, but many people I work with want to lose weight. This is kind of a hot button for me, so let's break this down a bit. It would be best if you never wanted to lose weight. Weight is never an issue. The scale is not your enemy. Fat is your enemy, fat is what we ...
