Some Thoughts On Dietary Beliefs And How They Affect Us

About a week ago, I received an email from someone I’d never chatted with before. It wasn’t your typical email asking for advice, or from a previous emailer I’ve been in conversation with.

It was from a complete stranger writing to correct me about my old article titled Clean Eating is a Scam. I don’t often reply in the way I did, but I felt the need this time.

Apparently it’s on the first page of google for most people when they search for Clean Eating, so many people actually find my site for the first time when searching this term.

While I’m bored to tears with this topic, I thought our email exchange was interesting, and brought up something I think is worth discussing, and revisiting from time to time. (more…)

A Year In Review: Gratitude, Thoughts, Reflections, and Revelation

In a few short days, we’ll stride into 2013.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I secretly thought writing this post would never happen, for I just knew the Mayans were onto something. I guess they weren’t.

Today I want to cover many of the interesting things that have happened in the last year, some people I’ve met, as well as how my thoughts are constantly evolving when it comes to the fitness lifestyle.

First we’ll cover the year, in short, and then some of the most popular posts on JCDFitness, my reflections on the past year, revelations, and finally, some questions on how I can help you in 2013.


Before I begin, I first have to say a hearty thanks to you for reading. This site has been up and running since October 2008, and I’m incredibly grateful for those of you who’ve been with me for so long.

I’ve come a long way as a writer, coach, and thinker since my early days of posting on forums, and writing random blogs about recipes, and such.

Fitness has given me a purpose in this world, and while I may not be the best writer, I’m happy I have the ability to communicate regularly with those who are looking for guidance in this crazed fitness space.

There’s quite a bit to read here today, and I’m incredibly thankful that you choose to read my work whenever I write something new. (more…)
