Men, it is our week to wake up! We are unhealthy, we have been denying it, and putting it off. Now is the time to stop, take notice, and make changes.

An Easy Formula To Stay Healthy

When did we get twisted around so badly as a culture? When did our appearance become more important than enjoying life and being healthy?

Are You a Bully?

I strongly feel that political correctness has become the problem. We say it right in public, then get it twisted behind closed doors. Our youth need to see us with a consistent message of kindness, understanding and compassion. That doesn't mean we let people abuse or take advantage of us. It means that none of us judge, insult, or belittle another person for any reason ever.

Give Jon Jones Your Support

Right now in the UFC, their light heavy weight champion Jon Jones, tested positive pre-fight to having metabolites of cocaine in his system. Jon Jones is heading to rehab. There is talk that he should lose his belt, he should face fines, and he should be punished in some way for this. There are even stories and news feeds suggesting it's a PR stunt. This is where I have a major problem.

The Food You Eat Powers Your Body, So Choose Wisely

Think of your body as a city. What if a city runs out of power? Then we have a crisis. On a regular basis, the food we put in our body needs to be nutrient dense. We need to be sure that every operation and system in the body has the necessary basics they need to survive. Then we can enjoy the food that kills us in peace. It's the balance that's important.
