About me

My name is Michael Tamez and I received my professional training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods.

Coaching with me

Together we will work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, maximizing energy and acknowledging self-love to empower you to reach your highest potential. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health. I can show you how to achieve permanent weight loss and exceptional health through holistic nutrition and lifestyle wellness coaching that supports you exclusively.
Most approaches to nutrition focus on counting calories, restricting carbs, eliminating fats and increasing proteins. My approach does not consist of creating outdated lists of dietary restrictions or needless comparative contrasts of good and bad foods. Instead, I work exclusively with each client in understanding their individual needs to create a balanced, healthy and happy life. My individualized coaching programs are uniquely designed in a way that is disciplined, yet fun and flexible and free of denial or guilt.

There is no one-size-fits-all diet! No one diet works for everyone, so I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you exclusively. I will support you in making gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

The popular solution to common health issues these days is to isolate conditions and treat local symptoms individually. Medications are often prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of many lifestyle related illnesses (such as obesity, inflammation and diabetes). Separation of the health condition or illness from the whole body and treating it with drugs is what causes imbalance and side effects to occur.

My approach involves working with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding. I practice a holistic (whole body) approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Have you put aside your spiritual/inspirational connection and practice due to a lack of time? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

I ate fast food for breakfast, lunch and dinner without a care whatsoever of the health consequences. I thought exercise was a joke; in fact I used to laugh about it. Rapidly approaching 250 pounds, I was falling further and further into a self- destructive mode and I still did not realize I was killing myself. I went for a physical exam and I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. The doctor arranged for an overnight sleep study because I complained of having no energy, falling asleep during the day and not feeling rested upon awakening. The results of the sleep study indicated that I had severe obstructive sleep apnea. I was given two choices by the doctor; I could either have esophageal reconstructive surgery or sleep with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. The doctor said if I didn’t do something immediately about the condition I could die in my sleep or have a stroke or heart attack. He also told me if I lost weight and exercised it would benefit with either choice I made.

I chose the lazy way and decided to sleep using a CPAP machine but continued the same nutritionally void diet and sedentary lifestyle. I did not want to put in any effort but I did not want surgery either. It was New Year’s Eve 2001 and I was the most obese that I had ever been. At almost 245 pounds (I am 5’8″) I made a resolution. I made a goal to start exercising and eating healthier. I did not want to be overweight, taking medication and on a breathing machine for the rest of my life. Learn about the dangers of prescription medications.

January 1st I started working out and actually stuck with it for a whole month. I was pissed that I only lost around five pounds. My Dad gave me some words of encouragement to keep on. He bought me a vinyl sweat suit and a pair of boxing gloves. I punched the bag that he had in his exercise room every day for weeks straight. To make it fun, I made up a game and pretended I was going rounds in a boxing match. I really sweat my fat off! I also started researching, reading and educating myself on health, nutrition and exercise. I decided to eliminate soda from my diet, and let me tell you, when you drink three super-size servings of soda a day that is not very easy. By spring, my weight was down to 210 pounds and I was feeling great.

At this time I stopped eating fast food and anything fried. I started preparing my own meals and eating salads and sandwiches. I then took my work out to the outdoors. I went on forty mile bike rides through the North Branch bike trail (Devon Ave. and Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago, IL to the Botanic Gardens in Glencoe, IL) at least three times a week and also started hiking in the local forest preserve. I then started to decrease the CPAP machine usage to four times per week, then three, then two in a two month period. By August 2002 I weighed in at 180 pounds and I felt and looked like a new person. I kept up with the exercise while continuing to learn about nutrition and holistic health; I decided to give up sweets. By the beginning of Autumn I weighed 165 pounds (ideal weight for my body type and height.)

I decided to stop using the CPAP machine all together. When I went for a follow up exam in November of 2002, the doctor said not only was my blood pressure ok, but my sleep apnea condition seemed to have subsided as well.

This is my true story of how I transformed myself from being an obese, unhappy and unhealthy man into a fit, happy and healthy human being. My personal story is the reason I have developed a passion to share all that I have learned and experienced. It is my biggest inspiration and motivation to make holistic health and transformative nutrition my career path. I am living proof that obesity, unhappiness and disease can be reversed. Please visit my website to see my before and after photos. I truly was fat, sick and nearly dead!

I am an Institute for Integrative Nutrition certified health coach and I work with clients supporting them to sustain permanent weight loss and reach similar health goals. Aside from my formal training, I have experienced things in life that no medical school or degree could ever have given me. I have dedicated a large portion of my life to helping and supporting people who are struggling with health issues and weight loss. Pills, medications, surgery, fad diets, fasts, and cleanses are a temporary fix, however, none of these will bring permanent and positive changes like a complete lifestyle change will. I would love the opportunity to be your personal health coach. I will motivate, support and inspire you to reach all your health goals.

    Just listened to Michael speak, on Coast 2 Coast. Agreed with all that you said, regarding Government prescribing endless pills, and manufacturing foods, to make us sick. I also love Hot Yoga.

    Have you ever tried Fasting? I do not mean Intermittent Fasting - I mean DRY Fasting, or just water. It is the most life-changing experience I have had, to date.

    If you ever want me to share information, feel free to contact me.
