Hi, my name is Tom, and this page is called About Tom. Thank you for visiting my site. If you are like me, your excess weight, or fat accumulates at your stomach.
My brother says that I had Dunlop disease. My belly done lop over my belt. lol When I was younger, in my 20’s, I lived in Los Angeles, and I was able to run most every day.
As a result of all this running, I ran and finished the 86 LA Marathon. I was able to eat most anything I wanted, and I did not gain weight, or fat. It was easy to keep and stay fit, with no fat at all around my midsection. In fact, I had a flat, washboard stomach. Oh, to be young again.
A few years later, I moved back to the midwest, and it became more difficult to run every day, so I joined a gym, and worked out there. As I got older, it seemed to take more and more exercise to maintain my good physical shape. Throw in a few age related injuries, and pains, and I knew I had to look for other ways to stave off the dreaded Dunlop disease.
I watched as relatives and friends struggled with their health, and well being. From depression, to cancer, and many chronic illnesses in between, they were prescribed drugs, chemicals, and surgeries, and they never really seemed to get any better.
I knew, being a Christian, that God wants us to be healthy, and to live a joy filled life. There had to be a better way to recapture our health, feel better, and have the desire, and stamina to achieve our goals, and reach our potential.
The medical establishment was either lying to us, or was simply unaware that there are many better solutions than drugs, surgery, and chemicals for chronic illnesses.
The US is at the top for trauma care, and acute care, but ranks 24th in the world in successfully treating chronic illness.
I believe that God has provide everything we need to live a healthy, happy existence. It is up to us to find these various foods, plants, and herbs, and learn how to best use them for our benefit.
Having a strong interest in alternative health, I achieved a degree in Natural Health in 2002. I learned a lot about how the body works, and how to incorporate natural, God given means, such as different foods, to become healthy, and stay healthy.
I have done research on the topic of using foods to reduce belly fat, and this website is focused on this objective. However, my main objective with this website is to provide information that will help you regain your good health, and maintain it by utilizing natural means that work with your body, instead of against it.
If you have questions, or concerns, or other feedback, please feel free to leave a comment. I am happy to provide answers to your questions, and direction for your health concerns. Thank you for reading About Tom. All the best, Tom
