“You’re always looking things up…” Apparently I’m a Google-a-holic. I’m inquisitive. I can’t help it. Information appeals to me. I’m a researcher, except when it comes to purchases. I’m so compulsive. I’m also experimental. I like to look up spices and foods and learn about them. Perhaps that’s what makes me such a foodie. Or… Continue reading That’s salad of questions…
If you know me – the real me – you know that language is everything to me. I don’t believe sugarcoating is healthy whether it’s our foods or our opinions, so I do expect (and respect) someone taking the time to form words and statements wisely.

It hardly seems possible. The FatGuyGoesVegan character is now four years old. Conceived during the December holidays of 2012, I started 2013 with a mission to go completely plant-based.

I imagine myself at a meat-eaters anonymous meeting: Dimly lit florescent lights cast illumination on 80’s-style wood… Continue reading Guest Post by Hamenopi

This past weekend, the Easter holiday was likely no exception, with a large… Continue reading Feaster Famine
My virtual friend Drew Manning of @fit2fat2fit taught me two lessons without even knowing me. First, that personal trainers have no idea what it’s like to be fat because, usually, they truly don’t know. Come to think of it, I haven’t walked a mile in their shoes either. Secondly, he taught me that one man… Continue reading Lose, yourself.
“Repeating the same actions, over and over, expecting a different result.” The definition of “insanity”, or rather, a definition of insanity is attributed to the brilliance of Albert Einstein, who coincidentally enough was a vegetarian towards the latter years of his life. One could almost call a proverbial groundhog’s life as insane then, if you… Continue reading Don’t Be A Groundhogger
