The Healthy Place – Tim O’Brien pt 1

Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast

The Healthy Place Tim Obrien pt 1Everyone has struggled with eating healthy. I mean everyone. I suspect even the cavemen were given the "evil eye" by their spouse for wanting to eat that extra piece of dinosaur meat from off the new fire spicket he installed for her.It is a fact that two out of every three adults in the United States over the age of 20 are overweight or obese. That’s according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I know I’ve struggled with weight my entire life. Just a couple of years ago, I was at 280 pounds and decided enough was enough. In the last two years, I’ve lost 65 pounds and actually want to go about another 15 or 20. But I haven’t felt this good in years. Amen!We all know that food is the best way to get your vitamins and minerals. But it sometimes can be hard to eat enough fresh veggies, fruits, whole grains, and other healthy options. A multivitamin can be a safe way to boost your nutrients.Don’t believe the studies that support the latest fad diets endorsed by some big name celebrity. Some people, anyone actually, can gain 10 pounds and then document how they went on some gimmicky diet for 30 days and lost 15 pounds and so many inches (but don’t tell you how much they were paid to endorse the product in doing so).Paleo, gluten-free, low-fat, juice cleanses, you name it: Proponents of any diet can find an academic study or some celebrity somewhere to back up their program.That brings me to my guest today. Tim O’Brien started off in the health and wellness industry back in 2003 working for GNC franchises. He then became a District Manager for the chain in 2005. Then, in 2008, he became the manager of Elite Nutrition until founding “The Healthy Place – Apple Wellness” in 2010.Tim has built a solid foundation of knowledge and expertise and this has translated into the success he has experienced in opening his own company. “The Healthy Place” first started online as e-commerce store, then turned into one brick and mortar store - but has now grown to four stores! Amen!Tim believes in educating and empowering individuals to make lifelong, healthy choices and changes in their lives. His desire is to help each individual to reach their true health potential and he does so while giving all of the Glory to God. Amen!Help me welcome to the program, Tim O’Brien! Tim, thank you for coming on the program today!First question I always start with is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, tell us in your own words, “Who is Tim O’Brien?”You started off in a GNC store. We’ve all seen them in the malls, etc. Was this a career decision you made at that time or was it just a job to earn some money and then that turned into a passion?When you met your wife, Becki, were both of you into healthy lifestyles and is that how you met or just something you found out you both had in common?You went from working with GNC to ultimately opening your own company. And it was not really that long of a ride, six or seven years. What was the motivating factor that made you decide you could make a difference? That one thing that was missing from the other healthy style stores out there?You are very selective in the supplements, vitamins, etc. that you offer, correct?I’ve read a lot of material that claims most of the nutrient supplements, etc. that are on the market do not come anywhere near the level of claims that are being made about them. What is your response to questions about the need for supplements, vitamins, etc?How do you determine what supplements qualify for inclusion in your store offerings?I know we always see the little disclaimers that the FDA has not reviewed or approved of supplements, vitamins, etc. that you see offered everywhere. Usually in fine print on the bottom of a TV ad that you have to pause to try and read.Folks, like I stated during the opening to the program, we all either have a weight problem, a health problem or know someone who does.I encourage you to reach out to Tim O’Brien and his staff at “The Healthy Place – Apple Wellness.” Go down into the show notes below and reach out to Tim and his staff.

TIM O’BRIEN’S VIETNAM & PHIL WEITLAUF’S WAR DOG MEMORIAL

Veterans Radio

What makes wars worth fighting? How do we write about war? What are the obligations of citizens with respect to war?  What are the after-effects of war on individuals and families? The War and Peace of Tim O’Brien follows O’Brien on the journey of his last book, as he reveals the everyday ties between duty, art, family, and the trauma of war.The War and Peace of Tim O’Brien is available as a VOD  – www.timobrienfilm.comIn the summer of 2010 Phil Weitlauf, Project Director of the Michigan War Dog Memorial, heard about an abandoned war dog monument at the corner of Milford Rd and 11 Mile in Lyon Township. Phil took his trusted companion Cody, a German Shepherd, to take a look. When they arrived at the corner we saw nothing but a heavily wooded area. They parked the car and went for a walk and there it was a large granite monument with the words “The War Dog.” As we looked around we could see several headstones buried in the foliage and brush. The site was in horrible shape…and that’s when Phil knew something had to be done to preserve “The War Dog.”  For More Information: www.mwdm.org

The War and Peace of Tim O’Brien / Film School Radio interview with Director Aaron Matthews

KUCI: Film School

In Aaron Matthews’ clear-eyed look into the life and times of a writer that has been called “the best American writer of his generation,” and our "poet laureate of war” Tim O’Brien. A Vietnam veteran, and National Book Award-winner, O’Brien is one of the great voices in modern American literature. The Library of Congress recently named his groundbreaking novel about the Vietnam War, “The Things They Carried,” one of the 65 most influential books in American history. It’s practically a cliché in the military – the book everyone carries is “The Things They Carried.” But O’Brien hasn’t put pen to paper in nearly two decades. He swore off making sentences when, at a late age, he had his first of two children. Plus, the nation was waging new wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that he couldn’t wrap his head around – wars that both reconfirmed and upended the notions of war, soldiers, and society that animated his books. Now, Tim O’Brien is trying to write again. He thinks the country is past due for a conversation about war’s impact. He thinks we’re running out of time. And, at age 70, that he is too. THE WAR AND PEACE OF TIM O”BRIEN follows O’Brien on his journey writing his next and last book. What makes wars worth fighting? How do we write about war? What are the obligations of citizens with respect to war? What are the after-effects of war on individuals and families? Director Aaron Matthews (Token Exchange, The Paper), brings us inside the lives of the O’Brien family with his intimate film about the struggles of a world-renowned war writer illuminates the everyday ties between duty, art, family, and the trauma of war.For news, updates and screenings go to: timobrienfilm.com
