As we enter 2022, many may find themselves pursuing improved overall health. For the last decade I have been advocating to ditch trendy dieting methodologies, instead prioritizing our individual health. As the adage goes, 'Health is Wealth', an individual can best enjoy the virtues of life if they are physically, mentally and spiritually well.

“Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and dementia are all now considered diet-related diseases, and sub-optimal nutrition is emerging as a leading cause of poor health.”

Our dietary habits profoundly contribute to our overall physical and mental wellbeing. What we choose to eat can be a form of nutritional dietary medicine or a slow form of intoxication. What we choose to consume or in many circumstances avoid consuming contributes to building a stronger more resilient immune system, not to mention significantly aids towards the prevention of inflammation. Whether it’s the common cold, or a bullet wound and everything in-between our overall state of wellness going into an infection or illness plays a profound role in our ability to recover and the rapidness of recovery.

“A well-primed immune response depends on good nutrition to function, and malnutrition is known to increase susceptibility to infections. In turn, infection can aggravate malnutrition, since it increases the body’s demand for nutrients. This creates a viscous cycle, further increasing vulnerability to infection.”

With the New Year brings New Year’s resolutions and cravings for change. It’s a time to reflect and renew. For those looking to lose weight in a healthy sustainable manor, developing long lasting healthy dietary habits or continue your path towards a healthy lifestyle I invite you to contact me to discuss your situation and objectives.

“Fresh starts increase your motivation to change because they give you either a real clean slate or the impression of one; they regulate your setbacks more clearly to the past: and they boost your optimism about the future. They can also disrupt bad habits and lead you to think bigger picture about your life.”

Wishing you a Healthy 2022 and Beyond.




He lost 130 pounds in 2010-11 and has kept it off ever since.

Tony's Shift happened early 2010 inside the change room of a Big & Tall Clothing store. He lost 130 pounds in 16 months and has successfully maintained his weight since.

He detested the reflection he saw in the mirror to the point that he removed all full-length mirrors from his home. He cringed when he was referred to as a “big guy.” His obesity caused him to be treated as a second-class citizen. Reality began to set in. Gaining “just a few pounds” every year, until he started to fear for his future.

He was 37 with a host of medical issues: Type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, gout, joint pain, constant indigestion, and acid reflux. Simple tasks like putting on socks, climbing a flight of stairs, fitting into an airplane seat or booth at a restaurant, and getting out of bed became big challenges for him. Every afternoon he would have a sugar crash, leaving him with little energy to get through the rest of the day. He was always sweaty and tired. He began avoiding the outdoors and eventually just avoiding life.
