When Health Isn’t What You Want

As my past writings readily reveal, the majority of my background is in the realm of health and fitness. When I saw clients privately, I took great pride in the many examples among them that achieved remarkable levels of observable health, performance, and general fitness. But I must admit that didn’t describe everyone I coached. Truth be told, not even a majority. As with every coach in that field, most clients have a very different outcome. We all just hope ...

What Mirror Selfies Really Say

In a recent Men’s Health article presenting their 10 candidates for the upcoming Men’s Health Ultimate Guy award, I noticed something about the photos that were posted to introduce us to these candidates. Most were indeed amazing guys that each had a compelling story to tell about overcoming some great obstacles or engaging in some poignant social cause. But many of the pictures pictures accompanying these articles told a very different story.

Now, I am someone that would have loved to ...

Stigma, or Accommodation

One of the few people with whom I feel entirely simpatico on the subject of human health is Mark Sisson – author of the Primal Blueprint. Yet, Mark published an article recently called the “Stigma Of Obesity” that I think deserves a closer look. I want to use this post to present both points of view for you to consider.

Please read Mark’s article here first.

Always a part of this issue that we can agree on is the need ...

The reason then that so many choose sex over survival is because sex is something we are biologically programmed for, and health is not.

That is the ...

Health Is Not Class Issue

Drop by your local mall soon and take a look around. What you see there is a dramatic example of why your health is less than it should be. Our desire to be entertained has been completely overwhelmed our need for food, shelter, and clothing.

Addicted To Variety, Pt. I

Uh-oh, major 3-part rant on the way. Brace yourself. You have been warned.

I have been consulting individuals and groups on the nutritional requirements for health for years, and I can say with no hesitation that upon hearing about the various guidelines for proper nutrition, the one that seems to concern people the most is the smaller universe of foods from which they will choose.

The reality is that you have just been given you the keys to vitality, quality of life, ...

Update From Life

The focus of this blog is a big and important subject, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be shrouded in mystery and sciency language. As I’ve often said, we would have never survived as a species if humans had to understand or even care about science to be healthy. But you’d never know that to listen to the current crop of health advisors – even the ones speaking the truth.
