So many of us have tried dieting. All too often though, many of us lose 10–20 pounds, but we end up gaining it back. Not only is yo-yo dieting unhealthy, it is also demoralizing and makes us feel like giving up. What exactly do we have to do to achieve a healthy body weight and to stick with it forever?
In this interview series called “5 Things You Need To Do To Achieve A Healthy Body Weight And Keep It Permanently” we are interviewing health and wellness professionals who can share lessons from their research and experience about how to do this.
As a part of this series, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dominique Clare.
Dominique Clare is a fitness coach, blogger, and the founder of SportsandFitnessDigest.com. He is a former division 1 college football player who first grew popularity on social media as a sports writer. He started his own fitness journey 6 years after playing college football. He became a fitness coach and blogger after realizing how many former athletes like himself where struggling after their playing days
Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive into the main focus of our interview, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your childhood backstory?
“I appreciate the opportunity to tell my story and talk about a topic I am so passionate about as it is something I had to personally overcome.
I was born in the Bahamas and moved to the United States when I was very young. I grew up in a small town in Minnesota. I was one of the only minorities in my school and town. Because of that, I felt slightly out of place. Being active and playing sports made me feel whole and like I fit in. My entire childhood became focused around playing sports recreationally and organized. This remained the same until the day I played my last snap in college.”
