This article was originally published in November of 2016. Through more life experience and information gathering, I continue to evolve my approach to diet and this updated article reflects and addresses that evolution, especially regarding consumption of fat.
I still eat lots of fat, now to a point, though. When this article was originally written I was at the tail end of transitioning away from eating a higher amount of carbohydrates and instead focusing on fats.
That switch to a high-fat and low-carb lifestyle brought a significant amount of positive changes into my life. Inspired by those changes, I may have subsequently doubled down too emphatically on consuming large quantities of fat within certain meals.Read More
Ruining Sports For Our Kids
The first time my son picked up a bat I could feel myself on the verge of becoming the type of overbearing father that can ruin youth sports for kids. I will never forget the moment nor the feelings that overcame me.
My son was somewhere between the ages of one and two. The bat was one of those big, yellow, wiffle ball bats. We had a batting tee and big wiffle ball too.
We took to the field, which was just a strip of grass, but in my mind, it felt like Citizens Bank Park, home of my beloved Phillies. This would be my son’s very first sports adventure and I was brimming with anticipation.Read More

Minimize Your Approach
Have you ever undertaken a major dietary change only to completely bail on it weeks into the program? Maybe you have had difficulties even taking that very first step.
If you feel you need to make some changes with your eating but are too overwhelmed by just the thought of it or do not know what changes to make, I would suggest minimizing the approach. Instead of attempting wholesale changes to your diet I would consider taking a more actionable step, which is focusing first on just your breakfast.Read More
Butter In Your Coffee - Seriously?
Have you blended grass-fed unsalted butter and coconut oil in your coffee yet? Known as Bulletproof coffee, it is rapidly growing beyond an underground beverage of choice for CrossFit athletes and high-fat diet devotees. The caffeinated concoction was created by Dave Asprey, founder, and CEO of The Bulletproof brand. There are purported wellness benefits to be gained by consuming buttered coffee that is starting to be touted by others than just Dave and the growing legions of Bulletproof aficionados.Read More
The Demands Of Work And Home

The Undeniable Impact Of Sugar
When my son eats a major sugar bomb, like a piece of cake at a birthday party, I can see his mood change. His generally sweet and cooperative disposition shifts to one of a fired up wild child, which is soon followed by a crash of energy and crankiness. His ability to follow directions, typically a positive trait for my son, wanes as a result as well.
Watching this outwardly behavioral roller coaster is like tracing the steps of sugar’s overt and undeniable physiological impact on my son. The sugar is sending signals and triggering reactions in his young and developing mind and body.Read More
I am incredibly grateful to have recently had a brand new article featured on The Mighty. It is a piece I wrote titled "Why We Shouldn't Wait Until We Emotionally 'Bottom Out' To Get Help For Mental Illness".
I am hoping that by sharing my past struggles I can help open up the conversation a little bit further surrounding mental well-being and encourage others to seek professional help well before a crisis strikes.
