Back to strict Paleo

Most people know I’m always eating a Paleo diet, but I was not going to strict for a while, flexing my eating a bit. About a month ago I started using a FitBit again and decided to go strict Paleo again. On the day I started strict Paleo i weighed in at 192.4 pounds with a body fat of 28.6%. Today I weighed in at 182.6, losing 9.8 pounds. Body fat down to 25.6%, equaling 3% down in one month. Thanks to all my FitBit friends, your competitive spirit is pushing me to get to my weight/body fat goal.😊Diet is the most important for weigh loss, not to mention health, then exercise second.👈


If you people ever visit the Big Island of Hawaii, and want to see sharks in the field, go to the spencer beach park area in Kawaihae, and to the right side of the beach is Pu`ukoholā Heiau. In the bay below the Heiau there are always a bunch of sharks cutting the surface. One of the few places you can see this sort of thing.They are mostly black tip sharks, but the bay has hammerhead sharks and sometimes the dreaded tiger sharks. The strange thing is Spencers beach, a popular swimming area, is only about 400 yards to the south, and the sharks don’t go that way.

Hurricane Iselle

Here’s a link for a video I made of me trying to get home after Hurricane Iselle hit the Big Island of Hawaii on August 7th, 2014. I was trying to get home to check in my wife and kids, who were trapped on our street due to downed trees and powerlines…


Inflammation is the body’s/persons response to a problem. When your body thinks there’s a constant problem, it lives in a chronic state of inflammation. This steady, low level inflammatory state underlies all chronic disease and suppressed immunity. Essentially, it’s at the root cause of just about every disease in imaginable. So what causes inflammation in the body? One of the main things is high sugar/carbohydrate consumption. Eating high sugar/carbs causes a massive insulin spike. This results in a heavy sugar crash. The body perceives an emergency and causes a cortisol response. This is alarming to the body. This causes inflammation in the body. Inflammation then triggers disease. The daily cycle of this process takes a toll of the body. You age faster. Hold on to fat. Feel tired and sluggish. Get sick. Go low sugar/carbs unless you are training hard. Ok?
