Did I make you angry? Good, Now Do something about it!

Now, let me be clear, that my role is not to be someone’s friend, but rather shed light on the sometimes less than stellar choices that people make for themselves. I am a fitness and lifestyle & weight management advisor. My mantra is “Get the Monkey Off Your Back” and my approach is direct and to-the-point. I have over 18 years of fitness and behavioral lifestyle and weight management counseling experience. I have toured the country teaching the benefits of positive thinking and action. I am an advocate of a whole-foods diet and regular cardiovascular and strength-training 
exercise. And I stand firm by promoting personal responsibility, choice, and deliberate and controlled action. I provide people with the solutions they need to change the way they look and feel, forever; however, this requires recognition and complete transparency of one’s current state.

Luckily, your weight is within your control, but you must accept this responsibility, because if you don’t the sad, ugly cycle of dieting creates self-loathing, which inescapably makes your monkey heavier.

Most people’s weight problems make them increasingly unhappy. Do you resolve to do better in the morning, only to disappoint yourself? Are you going to hide behind fat clothes instead of making changes? There is no reason to live this way. The time is NOW to rid yourself of your monkey so you can achieve your goals and change your life. You can be in control. Make the choice to be in control!

This is a matter of choice—what do you choose?

Why EatThatMonkey.tv?

Because Life doesn't get Better...You DO!

This site is for everyone, regardless of age or gender; it is for the individual whose best is under construction and wants to lead a life of optimal health and true happiness. EatThatMonkey.tv is not about fad diets and one-size-fits-all fitness, it is about optimizing health and performance of Body (using the I.I.T Method), Mind (Got Monkey?) and Soul (food for the soul-because good health starts from the inside out). These elements don’t operate independently. We will also discuss real issues that real people face regarding body image, sleep, relationships, parenting, what happens behind closed doors, and all other things related to “life.”

I spent so many years hating my body and not accepting it as it was. To compensate for my horrible self-image and lack of self-esteem, I took fat burners, went on every ridiculous diet on the market, over exercised after binging, and even went so far as taking hypo-thyroid medication to lean down to manage an out-of-control over eating problem. I did myself a great deal of emotional and physical damage with that state of mind. My journey, my transformation has been a lot of trial and error. I live it every day. I am a human being that struggles with the same choices as everyone else and knows how to facilitate change and create a life of total wellness.

Through a great deal of self-analysis and personal responsibility I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and become a better version of myself. The road was not always smooth and it took a significant amount of effort, but every step along the way has been worth every ounce of tears, sweat, and effort that I put in. Now, I want YOU to reach down deep and find the desire to uncover and unleash the most amazing version of yourself!
