Welcome to truthology.net! I created this blog to share the details of the physical transformation I made by improving my eating habits. My hope is that this blog will motivate others to achieve similar life goals.
A little background on me:
After the birth of my second child in 2010, at the age of 37 years old, I found myself in a position of much-needed change. Standing at 6’1″ and 250 lbs, I was beginning to suffer from several non-communicable diseases, including but not limited to: gastro-esophageal reflux, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic fatigue, headaches, stress and anxiety. Fortunately, I was able to quickly align myself with some life-changing people and information. Coupled with the support of my family, I was able to shed 60 lbs in a period of 6 months….and have successfully kept it off since. In the process of doing so, I gladly said farewell to each and every one of the ailments I was formerly suffering from.
Having carried extra weight around for most of my life, I have been on countless diets over the years. As opposed to the many “fad” diets I have tried, what I am doing now is very basic, logical and sustainable. Therein lies the beauty, because anyone can do it and similar results can be achieved. Even if weight-loss is not your primary objective, I believe that the path to optimal health is through nutrition. I now understand and believe in the sage advice from Hippocrates, when he said “Let food be thy medicine…”.
I now strive to adhere to an optimal daily diet. While I find myself making tweaks here and there to my eating habits as I grow further and further away from my years of obesity, I remain firmly committed to the philosophy of eating with meaning and purpose. I refer to this ongoing journey as TRUTHOLOGY and I invite you to join me.
My blog will be updated periodically with some of my abstract perspectives on the human diet. I am not a doctor, nor a nutritionist….I am simply speaking from personal experience. I trust you will find my posts thought-provoking and I welcome your comments and feedback.
We’re all in this together. Let’s have some fun!
