Power Factor to be Trim, Healthy, and “Satisfied”

Dr. Tague's Blog Power Factor to be Trim, Healthy, and "Satisfied"

Did you know that weight gain, an excessive appetite, high cholesterol, high blood sugars, heart disease, and diabetes have a common nutritional deficiency? The deficiency is present in over 90% of Americans and is related to fiber. It is a true epidemic, and almost every American is a victim! High fiber foods like oat bran, beans, rice bran, barley, citrus fruits, and berries tend not to be daily foods for most Americans, and that has created a problem. The message is that…

Achieving Optimum Health

Achieving Optimum Health

You and I have a common goal, and it is all about you. We both want to…

“Achieve and Maintain YOUR Optimum Health!”

I use the term “Optimum Health” frequently.  After all, health matters. And when it comes to something as important as your health, mediocrity and compromise have no place.  Optimum Health is an extremely valuable and “necessary” goal, so let’s define it:

Protein… I call it the “Dieter’s Friend”. Did you know that dietary protein is ESSENTIAL for health? Literally, we cannot live without it.

In fact, for some, the only weight gain they have during the entire year is during those few weeks. It is simply a difficult time to control food choices and portion sizes. It seems everyone is feasting, and they want us to join them! The temptation can be hard to resist.

Getting Unstuck!

Getting Unstuck!

Time and again people have come to me to get “unstuck” from wrong routines that have resulted in health and weight problems that were never intended and never wanted. They literally had become “stuck” in a pattern of ongoing fatigue, weight gain, wrong foods, wrong routines, and deteriorating health! I promise… you can do better!

Nutrition for Bones, Muscles, and Aging

With a background in chemistry and engineering, I’ve had a fascination with the “chemical engineering” power of nutrition to keep our bodies strong, healthy, and youthful. In engineering, a core concept is that what goes in to a system determines the possible outcomes of that system (in this case, the human body). Stated very simply… You are what you eat!
