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.

What to eat? Wisdom vs Pleasure

Ever hear two voices battling in your mind, fighting over what you’ll eat? A wise and caring angel in one ear telling you how healthy and fit you’ll be if you eat this or that.

Vitamin D and Mood

Vitamin D and Mood

Would you like to improve your mood, have more energy, avoid anxiety, and lower your cravings for carbohydrates? Vitamin D (the “sunshine vitamin”) may be just what you need! In fact, vitamin D is one of the most researched vitamins for enhancing mood and avoiding common forms of depression.
