ExecLevel Wellness was founded to capitalize on the experiences of Randall and Amy Nelson. In common, they were raised in small rural communities, moved to Arizona for school and ultimately stayed there for their careers. Each spent > 20-years in industry/academics, with their careers culminating in executive-level positions. Success in these roles has allowed them to retire at relatively young age and devote themselves to more fully understanding Wellness and sharing their findings.
Sometimes those holiday feasts are just amazing. And it’s not just the abundance of delicious food but also the people, the decorations, and the ambiance. It is way too easy (and common) to indulge on those days. But it doesn’t always stop there. Sometimes we overeat on regular days. Or[…]
It strikes me that people generally look at foods only in terms of calories. Afterward, if at all, do they view foods compositionally – i.e., in terms of macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein & fat). Consequently, they run the risk of unhealthy eating, even when consuming an optimal amount of calories. In short, they may eat[…]
Food intolerances or “sensitivities” can affect you in so many ways. And they’re a lot more common than most people think. I’m not talking about anaphylaxis or immediate allergic reactions that involve an immune response. Those can be serious and life-threatening. If you have any allergies, you need to steer clear of[…]
Yes, I’m serious! (And don’t you sometimes wonder anyway?) You already know that your poop can reflect your physical, and sometimes even emotional, health. You may get constipation or have diarrhea when you eat something that “doesn’t agree with you,” or when you’re super-nervous about something. And what about fiber and[…]
The words “weight-loss” and “snacks” often appear in the same sentence. But that might also bring thoughts of “tasteless,” “cardboard,” and “completely unsatisfying.” Right? Let me give you my best weight-loss friendly snacks that aren’t just nutritious but also delicious! What’s my criteria you ask? They have to be[…]
Type A Personality? Here are 4 Tips to Thrive in Corporate America with Better Health, Less Stress and More Confidence
Corporate America tends to attract the Type A personality… maybe some of these traits ring a bell with you? There is no judging by the way…all 17 applied to Randy & I when we were building our careers, technologies and companies (truth be told, they probably still do)! 17 signs you’re a little[…]
Having a food intolerance is not fun. It can cause abdominal pain, discomfort, and nausea. It also causes embarrassing symptoms like flatulence and diarrhea. Other symptoms linked to food intolerances include muscle or joint pain, headaches, exhaustion, and even skin symptoms like rashes and eczema. Dairy is just one of those foods that[…]
Bloating is generally the result of not being able to properly digest foods. These not-so-digested foods feel like they’re just sitting around causing discomfort and a general feeling of being stuffed and “gassy”. It can happen at any age but if it seems to be more frequent as you’re getting older it can[…]
STRESS!!! After 20+ years in Corporate America, its a problem I know all too well. What I didn’t know back then was that I could have done a better job of managing it. But outside our jobs, its causes are absolutely everywhere. Would you agree? Our natural “fight or flight” stress response can[…]
One thing that absolutely lights me up about health and wellness is our food systems in the US and the things we allow for public consumption. I’m not sure if it’s ambivalence or lack of education that enables us to consume these “foods” in the quantities that we do, but my goal is to help[…]
Libido is such an interesting (and complex) experience. Because of this it can be affected by so many things. And we’re not just talking about the obvious sex hormone testosterone here. Although testosterone levels can have a big (yes BIG) effect on sex drive there are a lot of subtle things that can[…]
Of course, listen to what your doctor says. And also listen to what your body says. We both know that what you eat and how you move can make a HUGE improvement in some of the symptoms of menopause. Not to mention how common it is for ladies to gain weight at[…]
Weight loss advice is so common (and contentious) now. There are competing opinions everywhere. I say, forget about “who’s right” and let’s focus on “what’s right.” Because what gets results is what I’m focusing on in this post. I respect you too much to make empty promises and try to sell you[…]
Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” And while this may not be 100% true for every disease in every person, more and more research shows that our gut (digestive system) has a bigger role in many diseases than we used to think. And we’re not just talking about heartburn, constipation, diarrhea,[…]
