Are You Training for Life?

“Dave it seems like you are always training for something, is that correct?” This is a question that I get asked almost every day! My answer is YES, I am training for LIFE. You see, in my day to day life I never know what is going to happen. For that reason I try to always […]

Update on The Dave Diet!

As many of you know, I made a drastic change to my diet about four months ago. I was having some issues – none of them were medically serious – they were just enough to let me know I needed to change something! Here are the issues that needed some correction:  Psoriasis – I had […]

Some of Dave’s Favorite Foods!

I am on the verge of coming out with some breaking news about the power of food. Please just give me a week or two to get my latest thoughts to you. What I have discovered is so unbelievable, I never would have really believed it myself two months ago. But I now have the […]

Silence for the Next Five Days!

This has been really tough on me. I have had laryngitis for the past couple of months and yes, it has been very difficult. As you may know, I speak for a living. And when I am not speaking, chances are I am in a meeting or on a teleconference or something like that. I […]

Going to California

Friends… for the last couple of years I have told you about one of my favorite annual events. It is the Bay to Breakers 12K race in San Francisco, and this weekend is the 100th running! I am heading west to do this race. Let’s call it more of a fun party than a race […]

When is Your Birthday?

Birthdays – you either love them or hate them.  I personally love them! NO, not because I get lots of cool presents, but rather because each birthday is a confirmation that I am living a great healthy life! Friends… I turned 56 last week. I am always hearing from people – “David that cannot be […]

What is All This About Living Until 102?

Yeah, yeah, I know this blog is called “Follow Me to 102!” And since the name of my Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/healthyat102) is the same, you wouldn’t believe many people actually ask me this question: “Hey Dave, what makes you think you will live to 102?” The answer to the question is this. I actually have […]

Does Your Family Stress You Out?

This week was sort of the unofficial kick off of the season where many of you will begin to gather with your families for holiday meals, cookouts, summer pool parties, etc. I’m fortunate that I truly love being with my family. My parents, brothers, children, in-laws, etc. are all people that I enjoy hanging out […]

When You Talk to Yourself – Do THIS!

Do you have an affirmation? An affirmation is something you say to yourself every day or even several times a day.  It’s positive speaking to yourself. There is one in the front of my book and here it is… I have decided that I will change my life. In a short time I will be […]

You Really Need to Make YOU a Priority!

People tell me regularly that they do not have time to eat healthy or exercise. When I hear this I really want to say “What the #@%*.”  Seriously folks what is that all about? You know on the airplanes the flight attendants tell you if the oxygen masks drop, place the one over your face […]
