Since about March 2020, I’ve been using food to cope with stress. I ate when I was not hungry. I ate much more than I needed. People who knew me always admired my “clean eating” habits. They thought that I had a very strong discipline to keep myself away from the sugar. Yes and no. […]
I was trying to break my food addiction with the thing that created it – my mind. I read, I listened, I watched. I took notes. I meditated on it. Nothing had worked and it made me realize how strongly I got hooked on food… sugar in particular. Throughout my research I learned a ton […]
I am the fattest that I’ve ever been I am the fattest that I have ever been in the past three years. It bothers me. Not so much the weight but the psychological side of things. I realize that the problem is much bigger than eating less and exercising more. Like many others, I am […]

The pace and style of learning were set by the institutions, following a one-size-fits-all model. This model has basically remained unchanged for the past 100 years. To think about that is scary.

We are very different than most co-working spaces. Typical co-working spaces are built to encourage networking and establish a sense of community. I want to create a space, which goes the other way.

Companies will shift […]

December 2019… I love my job, however, I have always felt there is something more behind the office window and meaningless conversations with your colleagues over lunch. I knew I can do more, I knew I can be more. Not to prove, not to show off, but because I can. What happens to a tree when it […]
Decision Everything in life begins from a dream, a vision.

There are so many diets that promote incredible results with weight loss, muscle gain or overall well being. How many diets or different approaches have you tried in pursuit of your goals? How many times have you failed?

As you already know, during exercise you lost a portion of electrolytes along with sweat.

Your body’s engine is a hybrid, it can run off two different fuel sources: fat and carbohydrates. These fuels are stored in separate “gas tanks”: FAT STORAGE: Adipose tissue (100,000 calories)CARBOHYDRATE STORAGE: Muscles (500-2000 calories) + Liver (100-400 calories) + Blood Glucose (25-100 calories) First a little bit of background. In 1853 Claude Bernard discovered that […]
