The keto trend is also impressive as it is making a somewhat complicated nutritional approach that provides tons of health benefits something buzz-worthy that is now getting attention. However, because of the booming growth, everyone […]
Would you like to lose some fat? A ketogenic diet is a pretty good tool to help you reach your goal. You can use exogenous ketones which have been a popular way to help get people into ketosis and comply with the transition from eating carbs to eating fats. Once in ketosis, use real food to […]
You’ve been on a short fast, but your mental energy is lagging, your physical performance is struggling and you feel like you need a pick me up. You reach for some exogenous ketones as this is what the benefits of the products claim, but wait! Won’t that kick you out of your fast? Won’t […]
CrossFit recently wrapped up with their highest participation ever in their CrossFit Open. This time period is when I usually see people climb out of the woodwork to try to figure out all of their chronic (and acute) physical pain. This is also the time where most people demonize CrossFit. This isn’t the fault of […]
I’m writing this while sitting on a chair hurtling through the atmosphere at 600 mph, 40,000 feet above the ground, going somewhere that is not for direct work. Actually, the purpose is entirely contrary to work but to step back and reevaluate the chaos that is my work. Yet, I’m not taking a vacation. I […]
With seeing patients, operating this website, Perfect Keto, pureWOD, Health Fit Business, Movement Providers, all on top of advising a few companies, I need to be as effective and efficient as possible throughout the day just to stay afloat. There has to be a superhuman level of strategy and productivity to keep this juggling act […]
We all probably know coffee as the delicious beverage that we start our day with, but coffee is much more serious than that. I certainly have an addiction. There is proof online here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And that’s just in the last 24 hours of my Instagram. […]
We’re nearing the end of the ketosis experiment I started two months ago, so it is time to recap the data and see where we’ve come. Before you piss your pants with excitement, I have some bad news for you. Unfortunately, last week is the first time that I got a lot of the initial lab […]
Are you making a critical mistake when it comes to ketosis? I’ve been extremely guilty of it in the past. One of the biggest mistakes for people trying to improve their health is the misconception that a low carbohydrate diet equals a ketogenic diet. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and could be killing your efforts to […]
Beta…hydro…what? Technical and “science-y” words can be super intimidating, but we’re here to break down one of the top buzz words in the ketogenic diet community — betahydroxybutryate (or BHB). We’ll chat all about what BHB is, why you’d want to use it for energy, and all about side effects and benefits of BHB. WHO […]
What mistakes are you making when it comes to your health? I know I’ve been making plenty. That’s why I’m tracking my data in this recent ketosis experiment that I’m doing. What about you? Most people think that the ketogenic diet is just “low-carb” which leads them to make many mistakes that prevent them from […]
Having high levels of ketones doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting all of the benefits. Luckily, research shows us that there’s an easy way to know if you’re in prime therapeutic mode so you can be confident you’re getting the best results. Ketosis can already be complicated if you don’t test and figure out what kicks […]
This article will undoubtedly put me in some hot water with some within the paleo scene. Bring it on. After much misinformation, I believe it’s time to come out in defense of dairy. The good news is that I’m going to show you how you can easily test to see, if you can safely tolerate […]
I have to be honest with you. I’ve been making some critical mistakes. I was assuming that I was in ketosis for months but I’m now finding out that isn’t the case. Not even close. I’ve finally hunkered down and have been measuring my ketones the right way and the results have been pretty surprising. […]
There is a funny thing that happens in American culture when you say the word “diet.” People immediately make a few judgements. Either you are trying to lose weight, or there is something mysteriously wrong with you that you need to fix. I don’t buy into either of these assumptions. In my recent posts about […]
The results are in! Here are the results of my ketosis experiment. This post will detail my four-day fast ketosis kickoff period. So… if you think I’m going nuts and wondering why the hell I would fast, well, one, I can assure you I’m not and two, I suggest you read my highly informational article on why I […]
I’ve already gotten a lot of questions from people on how I’ve been eating while I’m running my ketogenic diet research experiment. The answer? Not that much differently than right now. As I wrote in the original article, I had already been doing about 60% ketogenic diet, and the main differences will be an […]
Why the hell would anyone want to fast?! This is a question I was blasted with when I mentioned recently that I’d been fasting. I’m used to pushback from people when something I do goes against a strongly held paradigm. This time the challenged belief is “humans need to eat every few hours or else […]
At this point, I consider myself pretty immune to what internet trolls say to me. I have a pretty tough skin, usually laugh off nonsensical comments, and carry on with my day. This last time was different. When checking the social media account for my ketosis supplement company, Perfect Keto, I noticed a rather […]
Truth-be-told, I probably went a little overboard when explaining why I decided to ditch “paleo” . Yeah, I included a lot of words, and one hell of a fancy graph. But…after the article made a few rounds, I realized I was missing something important – I never mentioned my replacements for “paleo.” If you read my last article, […]
Disclaimer: To set the record straight before we get any further, I do not dislike anything “paleo.” Please do not scan through this post, write a negative comment, or send me a scathing email without reading the article in its entirety. If you criticize me blindly, you are reinforcing my point. Ideas can be dangerous. […]
Follow Health Fit Business on Instagram @healthfitbusiness The original post is on Health Fit Business. On this episode we’ll be talking about why digital distractions (aka notifications) are the ultimate time vampire. Notifications from digital devices literally suck the lifeblood out of your day. Time to slay these vampires. Imagine these 2 typical scenarios of […]
You have probably heard about the new craze in health foods: bone broth. Strangely enough, this is one of those foods that we had been consuming as humans for a very long time, then recently stopped, now it is a “superfood.” Eating like we are supposed to and have been for a long time is […]
Want to check out more tasty soup recipes like this one? Hit my Instagram! With the temperature cooling off a bit across the country, it is time to start cranking on the soups and stews again. As I’ve been working out a little bit more and doing more gymnastics work lately, I’ve been going above […]
There’s no surprise how passionately I can get into a skillet. They are too easy to make, eat, and clean. I’ve gone Italian, Mexican, French, cookie, you name it — but now I have a new one for you: American.
One of the hottest crazes of the last year or so definitely has to be Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Coffee. Bulletproof Coffee is the practice of buying Mr. Asprey’s specific blend of beans, and mixing them with his specific proprietary supplements and grass-fed butter. But are there any bulletproof coffee benefits? His claim is that this […]
Supplements are sometimes looked at as sacrilege in the paleo template, but that is not how I see them. Essentially, if it can be used for benefit by your body with no negative consequence, you would be a fool to not utilize it. I’m writing a series of blog posts on supplements so people can […]
So I post all of these awesome recipes for dips, salsas and guacamole then I get all of this hate mail that there is nothing to eat it with that is “paleo.” Oh, not so fast, internets
What is acai, anyway? Maybe you’ve heard of acai bowls being a superfood or reserved for the super trendy hipster crowd, but fear not!
It is a pretty safe bet to say that guacamole is one of the best sides you can add to a dish. You can eat some (plantain) chips, toss on eggs, add to soups and stews and it provides a huge punch of healthy fats and micronutrients you wouldn’t normally get.
More meaty goodness always over on my Instagram. Eating meat off of the bone is one of the most primal things one can do. Most hot, smoky, slightly charred, fatty cuts of meat bring out a certain hunter gatherer in me that isn’t seen all of the time. This animal inside can be seen when gnawing […]
More salad inspiration can be found here: my Instagram. It is officially summer, and that means it is officially tomato season! Heirloom tomatoes are the best of the bunch, and if you’re lucky to find a farmer’s market in your area that has some locally grown heirloom tomatoes, you are in for a treat. Most […]
Creatine gets a bad rap sometimes but is commonly misunderstood. This is why I’ve chosen to write the definitive guide to creatine benefits.
One of the biggest problems patients of mine have when we work with their nutrition is incessant night time hunger and how to stop food cravings. The good news is if you’re looking how to fix late night hunger cravings, it can be a very simple set of solutions.

Want to see other fiery goodness? Check out my Instagram. I’ve long since held this simple stance, but food is much better when you add some flavor. Some habanero salsa can definitely have that effect. For those of you who don’t know, I eat a pretty monotonous diet from when I wake up until dinner. […]

More healthy treats can be found on my Instagram page, and nowhere else. There are no surprises that when I chose to make a predominantly paleo fudge brownie that I was going to commission Lovebean with the fudge production. They produce some of the best and cleanest fudge on the planet (as well as other […]

Check out more smoked meat goodness over on my Instagram! Whole birds are one of the best ways to meal prep. Get three or four of these things cooked up on a Sunday and you have amazing meals for the rest of the week. One of my most favorite ways to prepare birds is through a […]

More wingastic recipes over on my Instagram. There is no secret here at how tasty I think wings are. They are all over the Instagram account and are wolfed down pretty readily most Sundays, especially during football season. If you can get easily your hands on some pastured wings (hell, Costco even has organic ones […]

Want some more saucy ideas? Better check me out on Instagram. When I first went “paleo”, I removed all condiments and anything dairy and felt great. As I recommend a lot of other people do as well, I started experimenting and adding foods back in. Dairy was a food that I added back in that […]
Well, I started posting “How To” articles with How To Make Your Own Bacon and a lot of people came back to me and told me it changed their entire lives. With unlimited custom bacon at their disposal, people are claiming nothing can hold them back and they are able to now conquer any task […]
For those of you who have read my articles before, you likely know I’m not the biggest proponent of “diets” in general and don’t agree with the overly simplistic view that calories in equal calories out. Things have changed though. I have flip flopped and since come up with the most revolutionary diet of all […]
Want other super easy and healthy snack ideas? They can be found on my Instagram. Easter is right around the corner! If you celebrate with the masses, chances are you’re going to have plenty of hard boiled eggs that have been dipped in fancy colors. These get popped into baskets with fake grass and even […]
Alright my paleos, it is officially springtime! Although living in the Bay Area, there never really is any season. There is fog and no fog. The weather has been no fog and no rain for about 8 months now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be eating for the season.
Most of this country is in a deep freeze (not me!) right now, so I thought what better way to warm everyone up than a new soup recipe! Yes, yes, I know what you are thinking – isn’t pork chile verde already pretty much paleo?
The big game is coming up pretty soon here and you know what that means? Yep. Wing time. Americans are ready to eat over ONE BILLION (yes, with a B) wings on Super Bowl Sunday. Pretty ridiculous.
This post is going to appear to many of you to be very off topic. Great! Why your low back hurts doesn’t seem too “paleo” from the surface. Food and nutrition are excellent, but they don’t encompass entirely what I consider “paleo”, as I’ve stated before. We need to widen our paleo and primal lens from food […]
This is going to be a part in our ongoing “How To DIY” section on the website to help you become craftier not only in the kitchen, but the rest of your life as well! We will be launching a new refresh soon with a dedicated section, but for now enjoy the first post on […]
With the big game day approaching, you better get ready with some big game day recipes! Even if you don’t like football, chances are you’ll be around some type of gathering. We have the half time show, commercials, socializing, and best of all – the snacks. So hey, if you don’t want to enjoy the […]
A recent trip to France still has me obsessing over how to recreate traditional French dishes in a paleo light. This is currently happening behind the scenes at the Dr.AG HQ, but will have to wait until the bugs are worked out.
Admittedly, I’m not a huge cookbook person. I feel like I’m pretty damn good at cooking myself and usually whip things up on the spot with more of an intuition than direction. However, every now and then a beast in the kitchen comes out with an amazing resource that I can learn from. Enter The Zenbelly Cookbook.
13% of the US population use Keurig cups or other single cup coffee EACH DAY. It was equally baffling to me the prevalence of single cup coffee use when traveling throughout Europe recently. Every hotel lobby, room and a good portion of restaurants were fully stocked with single cup machines. Old stale (usually flavored) coffee […]
Often when people switch to whole food (or paleo or primal based diets), they think of what they’re giving up, and not gaining. Well here is another reason to not think of giving anything up – three meat paleo lasagna.
The popular site, BuzzFeed, wrote a pretty great guide on getting started with the paleo diet in the New Year. The guide has a lot of fantastic information for people trying to make positive changes. However, there are some items in the article that I think could use a little help for paleo newbies. Here […]
Savoy cabbage is often overlooked when we’re talking about the cabbage scene, which makes me sad. Savoy cabbage is much more tender than green or red cabbages which are bitter and rubbery before being cooked.
Winter time is by far the best time for soup creations. Using some seasonal ingredients is always fun. Here we have roasted butternut squash and apple soup!
Meal prep has been something that has been lacking for a lot of my patients lately, so I thought this is a perfect way to get around that.
