Just call me KETOshua from now on …

I don’t know how these formal announcements go. But, I guess there’s no other way to put it. I am going to be doing the Keto Diet. I’m not sure how this is going to affect my life? I won’t lie, I’m not exactly sure what I am doing? I just know that I want to do it and from those I know (and trust) they had nothing but good things to say about a…

The Hashimoto’s 33 Diet

The Hashimoto’s 33 Diet is a diet based a number of Hashimoto’s and autoimmune diets research online (you can find some here, here, here and here). From these diet plans I carefully constructed a list of 33 foods that would benefit my condition, promote weight-loss and increase my energy levels. This is a minimalist approach to my diet. And, the idea comes from a conversation I had with a friend a few weeks ago. We…

#Fight4Phat: The Bulletproof Diet

I’ve been a little quiet about the progress of my diet the past month and for good reason. I haven’t really been following one the past month. As has been heavily chronicled the past 4-5 months, I had been following the Whole30 to success of a 35lbs. weight-loss. Not bad. This past month my plan was to follow a bastardized version of the Whole30 — or basically a Paleo 80/20 diet plan. But, I learned…

The Whole30 Diet: My Whole30 Experience

I’ve been debating when I wanted to share my experience and thoughts on Whole30 for quite some time. I wanted to share it in detail mid-way through my first 30 days, then after my first 30 days. I could have easily shared my thoughts after my first 30 days. But, knowing I was going to do at least another 30 days — I wanted to wait. If I was going to share my thoughts on…

Whole30: Round Two — Progress & Weigh-in

It’s kinda hard to believe that I’ve been doing Whole30 since May. The summer months are just FLYING by. But, this past Friday was my last day of my second round of Whole30. And, I won’t lie — I was a bit nervous stepping on the scale. Not because I didn’t put in the work, but because I didn’t want to disappoint myself or feel disappointed in the number. If you aren’t aware of the…

Hump Day Happenings — The Abolitionists, Knee Surgery Update & Whole30 Diet.

I have an ‘exclamation complex.’ If it was update to me every sentence I write would end like this!!!! But, over the years through my vast communication education and blogging I’ve learned how annoying the exclamation point can be to the reader. No, I don’t write like a 14 year old girl with bundles of excitement and energy after every word. But, man on man — sometimes — I just want to let those exclamation points…

HEALTH MATTERS: Creating a Happy Thyroid & Testosterone

Finding a solution to health problems can be frustrating — very frustrating. Especially, when you’ve dealt with that problem for years with almost no solution. And, when you go to a doctor who should know a thing or two about that issue — they’re no help. That’s the time you take a self analysis of the situation and basically say — “screw it, I’m doing this my way!” Well, that’s where I am at with…
