Hi, My name is Dan and I am a 55 year old Chef that has been cooking, mostly in the New York City area, for the past 35 years. I love to cook,and it shows. I am on the north side of 300 pounds. Actually I started this journey at 400 pounds, so whatever I am doing to get my eating under control seems to be working.
I am dedicating my life and my cooking expertise along with my success in weight loss through eating the right foods to the health and weight loss of others.
I used to say, "Well, at least I don't smoke. " Smoking is the #1 cause of poor health, However, Being obese is number 2 and it is catching up to #1 pretty fast.
I need to continue my journey because there are people, loved ones, in my life that depend on me being alive for a while longer. Wife, kids, family dog, etc. A big part of my journey is to share it with others. It helps me as much as it helps them.
