I'm Scott Schlegel. St. Louis is what I consider home, but I haven’t been home in a long time. I have an Electrical Engineering degree from Rose-Hulman in Indiana. Because I played football there, I was always interested in bodybuilding and nutrition. This interest in fitness slowly turned into a desire for health.
I joined the Air Force in 2006, and since then, I’ve tried and learned a lot – good and bad. I’ve been writing and actively involved in online nutritional circles since 2011. I left the Air Force in 2012, and have since been working as an Engineer for my main employment.
I also have a Stock Trading site http://www.smashtrades.com which attempts to take advantage of inefficient markets to make low-risk, profitable trades.
I’ve done the Standard American Diet (SAD), bodybuilding diet, whole foods diet, veganism, vegetarianism, paleo, the "Perfect Health Diet," and a "Ray Peat" inspired diet. Now, I'm mainly interested in supporting the metabolic rate with a variety of foods, but it's most closely related to Ray Peat in that it avoids PUFA and emphasizes sugar and protein.
I understand the strengths and weaknesses of each diet and lots of different foods. I've also experimented with many supplements.
This site will contain a lot of my ideas for achieving mental, spiritual and physical health. Some articles will touch on things I enjoy such as relationships, travel, books, movies, and money.
