At Hunt & Gather, we believe that nutrition and fitness is a way of life. Our food choices and exercise affect our health, mood, and relationships. We also recognize that individuals react favorably to one nutrition or exercise program over another. As such, we seek to include in our community as many healthy food and fitness products, services, personalities, and enthusiasts that we can find who share the same with us the same values. Each community member is a proponent of either paleo, keto, pescetarian, or vegetarian nutrition lifestyles. Also included are businesses or personalities who advocate local, organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free living. We aim to provide Hunt & Gather community members information and choices for them and their families to truly live healthy lives through proper food choices and exercise.
On a personal note, I have been an athlete and a coach for over 25 years. For me, exercise has always been consistent in my life. Yet, I have struggled with weight management since I was a child. Being in a weight division sport, I have found my weight to yo-yo dramatically between the on and off-season. What I have found true for myself is that food choices is critical to body composition, with exercise as a close but secondary component. You cannot out-exercise a bad diet. There has to be a balance of both with heavier emphasis on nutrition. Now that I am a family man, nutrition and exercise carries a more significant meaning of not just preparing for the next athletic event, but for over-all wellness, longevity, and happiness.
