Thanks for visiting my blog, ‘The Healthy Path‘!
I publish one post every day about finding the path forward on your health journey.
I’ve been doing this since May 31st, 2013.
YOUR HEALTH IS A JOURNEY
It is yours and yours alone. No one, not even me, can tell you what is best for you.
You are the one who must walk your own ‘Healthy Path’.
On your Path you will find …
… milestones 🎓 & obstacles 🪨 …
… ups 📈 & downs 📉 …
… signals 📶 & noise 🤯 …
… confusion❓ & clarity 🔮.
Sometimes, you need a little guidance.
That might be in the form of a Coach, like me. It could also come from a book, course, doctor, friend, blog post … a painful experience, or a feeling of dissatisfaction.
I have been walking my Path for 42 years. I was not always full of vitality, nor in great shape.
In my early twenties I was ~50 pounds heavier, sedentary, and depressed.
I know that no matter how dark of a place you may be in today, it can be transformed into light.
“If you give your body half a chance, it will heal itself.” – That’s something they used to say at IIN, the first nutrition school I went to in 2017.
Going back to YOUR Path, there are principles I have tested on myself and hundreds of clients over the years that work.
While no two Paths are identical, they follow common threads.
Here share some of my experiences & tips.
There is A LOT you can do for your health COMPLETELY FREE, or at virtually no cost!

WHAT IS A PROGRAM LIKE?
I meet you, in every session & message, where you are.
I will help you set clear, defined, attainable goals.
We’ll follow a steady, incremental progression of adding in positive habits, which become skills, and lead to results.
I teach you …
… how to be your healthiest self …
… what the different layers & pillars of health are …
… how to eat & exercise correctly for your body …
… how to meditate and take care of your mind …
… why a spiritual practice is important …
… how to foster, grow, and deepen relationships …
… that no matter where you are, there is a path forward on your health journey.
I don’t make any assumptions. Some things we try will not work, and that is good. We want that kind of feedback to learn & grow.
WHAT IF I’M NOT SURE IF THIS IS FOR ME?
Reach out to me for free consult, which has no strings attached. I will not pressure you to sign up. Consults usually last 30-45 minutes and are very helpful by themselves.
WHAT IF I’VE TRIED OTHER DIETS & FAILED?
There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.
I don’t prescribe diets, because there is no one diet that works for everyone. I teach you how to discover what actually works best for you.
WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?
2017, Institute for Integrative Nutrition (Health Coaching Certification)
2020, altMBA39 (Leadership Program)
2021, Precision Nutrition Level 1 (Nutrition Coaching Certification)
Since 2017 I’ve worked with about 100 clients, mostly 1:1 plus some small groups.
I’ve coached people through losses of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and as high as 50 pounds. I’ve helped some of them dramatically improve other important numbers such as body fat % water %, visceral fat, metabolic age, and more.
I’ve worked with people on various food allergies & sensitivities. (Personally, I have not eaten gluten since 2010, so I have plenty of experience there.)
I love to dive deep into mindset, stress, breath work, & spirituality when needed. I’ve been meditating daily for over a decade, read countless works and taken several courses in this area.
Movement & exercise are one of my key pillars, and training you in calisthenics, weightlifting, kettlebells, sandbags, yoga, QiGong, & gymnastics are all in my bag of tools.
If anything we discuss or uncover is outside my scope of practice, I will tell you right away and find you a referral. For example: I am NOT a nutritionist, dietician, therapist, or doctor.
Example 1: I will not make specific recommendations to supplement with Vitamin B, but I will advise you to get a blood test if there are signs that might be needed, and help you understand the best sources & ways to take that supplement.
Example 2: I have many helpful tools for stress relief, but if your current level of stress is pervading all areas of life, affecting your performance at work, relationships at home, or physical health, then you probably need a therapist or doctor, so I would refer you out.
I’ve also been in the food business as an organic food distributor for more than 20 years, and bring a tremendous amount of industry knowledge about ingredients to the table.
DO YOU HAVE TESTIMONIALS?
“I’m really happy with my weight; I never thought I could achieve it! … This was my first vacation that I looked at the food and said to myself, ‘You know what – this is really bad, what I’m used to eating!’ It’s really a life-changing program that you are doing. I’m very, very happy.”
“I fit into the old clothes in my closet … but more importantly I realized that the name brand of the clothes do not matter. Only true radiance comes from within.”
“I think this is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.”
“Thanks for opening my eyes to things I thought were minor that were actually HUGE… like sleep and 1 oz more chicken or combo meat!”
“I always get worried before a new milestone/ new holiday that I’ve never been on this plan before, etc… but you calmed me down and took away my fear and anxiety, so thank you 🙏🏼”
“I’m feeling great. I have my energy back and I fit in my clothes again 🙂 I’ve made lots of little changes that have become Big Changes!”
WHAT IS MY INVESTMENT?
This is an investment in your Health; in your Self.
