Where do you get your protein? Without a doubt, that is the most frequent question I get from people about my transitioning to a plant-based diet. At first I felt defensive about the question but probably more irritated than anything. I’ve eaten the Standard American Diet (SAD) for years. I’ve shoved down hundreds … Continue reading Where Do You Get Your Protein?
I’m a complete and utter dislike-er of winter. While I have an appreciation of cooler weather and snow, I’d rather just skip it and move right into spring. Funny enough, that is apparently what’s happening here in Nashville: the trees are blooming, and the daffodils have pushed through the ground and are as beautiful and … Continue reading The Struggle is Real
Well, I made it to the end of my first month on my journey from fat to fit! It’s been an exciting month and I’d like to share what’s happened over the last four weeks. I started the month at 241.2 lbs. That’s the most I’ve weighed since 2009, when ironically, my cholesterol was … Continue reading Month 1 Results

Amidst the hustle and bustle and last-minute presents, my son, Aaron, called me at 9:30pm on December 21. “Hey Dad, what’s up.” What’s up was definitely not me; I had … Continue reading A Christmas Surprise
The weather here in Nashville is as wacky as ever. Last week it was eight degrees, and today it’s 72 and rainy. As a matter of fact, it has rained for several days in a row. I’ll admit, the gloom and rain of January has contributed to part of what has been a challenging week … Continue reading Week 2 Results and Rain!

After starting off my journey at 241.2 lbs, I expected a decent weight loss considering that I was super pumped about starting something new and exciting. Also, I've gotten lots of support from YOU, the great people who … Continue reading Week 1 Results and Snow!
I Have a Problem I have a few problems, but the one I want to write about today is, fo sho, a big one. Like most people, I LOVE to eat. Indian, Thai, and Italian are my favorites, but there's one food that reigns supreme: The good-old-fashioned American hamburger! I think I could … Continue reading Word From the Wise
I've been pondering for the last couple of weeks if I should focus solely on nutrition for the first month of my 2017 fitness journey, or if I should possibly incorporate some sort of exercise into my routine. Making a lifestyle nutrition change seems big enough, so I just haven't thought too much about the … Continue reading My Fitness Plan
