Your Optimal Health and Well-Being

This site is intended to help people reach their Optimal Health and Well-Being by following the protocol of (MED) Minimal Effective Dose. What is the least amount of work needed to get the most benefits to look and feel our best.

I lost 40 lbs. of body fat and gained 10 lbs. of muscle, and I would be totally disingenuous if I said it was hard. For 25 plus years I went to the gym 28 out of 30 days a week for an hour + of training, I would go to bed at 11 or 12 get up at 4 or 5 and head to the gym. I also dabbled in eating healthy (50 %) of the time. (I realize now that I didn't really know what eating healthy was.) Despite all that, I was gaining weight? Wait, What? How could that be? Well, I was doing it all WRONG! I wasn’t nourishing my body properly, sleeping enough, or managing my stress, and I was over training my body.

I recently had an epiphany, I had walked around in a fog, feeling tired and crappy for 25 plus years. Living off of Diet Coke, Alka Seltzer, Tums and Ibuprofen. All very bad stuff for your body by the way.

Our society believes, and accepts, that aging, “getting older” means we are expected to gain weight and feel like crap. I’m here to show you it is not fait accompli. At 58 I weigh what I weighed at 15, the only difference is I feel better and have more energy! 59 is the new 15!

There are really 7 pillars to success, to look, and more importantly feel your best: 1. Breathing; 2. Nutrition; 3. Sleep; 4. Managing your stress; 5. Managing your exposure to EMF’s or “dirty electricity” as some call it; 6. Stretching; and 7. Exercise. I probably shouldn't tell you this because I am a personal trainer and most trainers want you in the gym training 3-5 times a week, but if you are taking care of the first 6 pillars, you need very little exercise to reach your optimal health and well-being.
