What do most medical doctors REALLY know about nutrition? The answer may surprise you. I cover why there’s so much confusion regarding what most medical doctors actually know about nutrition.
“Will, if I just had this piece of exercise equipment I would start working out” or “Will, I can’t afford a gym membership right now” are common comments I get.
People often say if they only had X they’d start an exercise program. In this vid I cover no cost (no excuse!) options for exercise.
Most everyone knows that strength training is important if you want a strong body and a nicely-muscled physique, but it’s also important for many other non-cosmetic reasons.
A study published by a German science journal pointed out the numerous benefits of strength training for aging gracefully and healthily, including: reduction of age related muscle loss, increase in muscle strength and mass (as the trainee in this story, demonstrates in the gym), reduction in the loss of bone density, and improvement in posture and coordination (which helps decrease the likelihood of falls).
Now before you start thinking: “it’s probably too late for me,” or “the gym is for muscle heads,” or “the weight room is intimidating,” I’d like you to introduce Tom, a client of mine for over 6 months, who is 76 years young.
Due to the large response I received from the short video I did on the topic from people asking for more details, I decided to dedicate a show to the topic and give details on how diabetes was effectively reversed using one person as “real world” example. It can’t be done by everyone who has been diagnosed with type II – as there are genetic influences and other factors – but make no mistake, for a large % of people with type II diabetes, it can be reversed or at the very least, GREATLY improved.
This show, I use the example of one person to show how diabetes can be reversed.

Here’s my “take home” on this latest study causing all the hoopla that found an association to “fish oil” and prostate cancer. For those who want to real nitty gritty on this study, see article by Dr. Lopez HERE.
Another great article from Dr. Lopez that examines in objective detail what risks, if any, long chain fatty acids (the “fish oils” EPA/DHA would be in that category) present to the prostate. His prior article on fish oils can be found HERE.
Long-Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Friend or Foe to Prostate?
More than meets the eye to recent controversy over omega-3 levels and prostate cancer risk—Lets take a closer look
Hector Lopez, MD, CSCS, FAAPMR
A large-scale prospective case-cohort study evaluating plasma fatty acid levels and prostate cancer risk, published in JNCI (Journal of the National Cancer Institute) online ahead of print on July 10th, 2013 has created quite the stir amongst media, health care professionals, nutrition researchers, and the dietary supplement industry…Again! To quote the great Yogi Berra, “It’s like déjà vu, all over again.”
What’s the truth about sugar? People claim it’s the most toxic thing since eating uranium, but is that true? Does the sugar you eat matter? What’s the “best” sugar? Is it toxic?
I cover that topic in this vid!
Coconut oil is all the rage these days as the latest greatest “natural” product promising
everything from weight loss to immune support. IS IT TRUE?
I cover that topic in this latest vid!
Can You Reverse Diabetes? Yes!
It was not long ago doctors told people with type II diabetes it was not reversible. In recent years both studies and “real world” results have shown conclusively it can indeed be reversed.
It can’t be done by everyone who has been diagnosed with type II, as there are genetic influences, and other factors (such as length of time the person has had it and other factors) but make no mistake, for a large % of people with type II, it can be reversed or at the very least, GREATLY improved.
It does however take a serious commitment by the person and is not always an easy task to be sure. But, the rewards of course are worth it.
I recently took someone from 330+ lbs, who was recently diagnosed with type II,various infections and BPH. He was in very bad shape all around. He said he didn’t wanna die like that.
I believed him, and met him half way with the tools to change it.
Changes in diet, added exercise, added supplements, and serious commitment on his part, he’s down 50lbs, and his fasting blood glucose under 100, and his doctor gave him permission as of today to go off all insulin. I’m inspired by his commitment!
His life, 180 degree turned around. I gave him the tools to do it, and by God/Allah/Shiva, he used those tools and did it. Most will not sadly.
Today he’s a happy guy who’s gotten a real second chance, and unlike many who don’t know how to take yes for an answer, he took it, ran with it, and didn’t look back.
I plan to do a full write up on his story in the near future. Stay tuned…
