The key to an active lifestyle isn’t in web and Instagram posts with ripped dudes flexing in mirrors or women posting pictures of their butts in every photo then calling themselves “experts,” “motivators” and “influencers” who are helping you.

My concept of and value placed on food changed many years ago when I was flipping through channels on the TV. I came across a show with an overweight dude who travels around the world stuffing his face with junk-food, making stupid jokes and presenting gluttony as just another entertaining aspect of daily life!
