How I'm Leading My Family To a Healthier Lifestyle


By: Dr. Anthony Balduzzi, NMD - Men's Health Doctor & Founder, The Fit Father Project & Fit Mother Project,

Reflecting on this new year, I’ve been asking myself an important question:
“What does it mean to be ‘FIT’ as a father…?”

  • Is it losing belly fat?
  • Having bulging muscles?
  • Being able to survive that Crossfit class?

Last year, I would have said “YES” to all of that.

This year though, I have an entirely different definition. I’m saying “yes” to something even more special to me…
In 2018, I am stepping up and committing to new healthier lifestyle for my family.

healthier lifestyleYES, I still want to lose my belly fat, be more consistent with exercise, and start meditating to cut down on work stress.

More importantly though: I want to see my family eat healthier, get plenty of restful sleep, and exercise more.

It’s my job to lead them through ACTION … not idle words and empty promises.

That’s why this year, you’ll see me and our entire brotherhood here at the Fit Father Project practicing what we preach.

Living healthier this year has become a matter of integrity for me – not vanity.

  • Will I be cutting back my carbs? …Yes.
  • Will I be skipping desert? …Yes.
  • Will I be getting to the gym at 5am before work? …Yes.
  • Will I be following the FF30X Diet & Exercise Program that we use here at the Fit Father Project? …Hell yes!

…and slowly starting to emulate my lead.

I can’t think of many things more motivating than that.
