4 years ago, I started this blog, The More You Ngo, as a school project. It was to get out of doing another bigger semester-long (the truth comes out)! As I learned more and became a dietitian, my blog evolved into what it has become today. I’m so happy that I’m able to share this with you.
Ultimately, I write to start an honest conversation amongst my friends/readers about fitness and nutrition. I want to break down confusing and intimidating health topics and make them more fun, accessible, and approachable. There is a lot of misinformation out there. Worst of all, there are so many “experts” out there who prey on our misconceptions and fears, including some RDs. I won’t do that.
I have never and will never sell you an elimination diet, meal plan, superfood, or an idea of what you should look like. My blog is not a business. I discuss positive language of our bodies, enjoyment of exercise, and common sense about good nutrition. Food and health can be fun. I try to infuse some humor into it all and I hope you have enjoyed it.
Fun facts about my blog:
- It was originally was called “Thomas the Train(er)” until I realized I wasn’t 3 years old anymore.
- My 1st entry was about bananas.
- The most popular posts have been: (1) 5 things I wish I knew when I started working out and (2) Think Outside the Takeout Box: Cheeseboard’s Hot Green Sauce
- I try to post weekly, but I only write when I’m inspired. Usually, it’s from real life experiences with friends and family or conversations with other RDs.
- The longest time I went without writing was when I was at Rise. I poured my life into that job, so 2014 was a bit bare. Thank goodness I’m back it!
- I started a Kickstarter to raise money for The More You Ngo tank tops and you guys made it a success. I still wear mine today 🙂
- My favorite posts were featuring people and their fitness journeys. Everyone does it differently!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading and laughing along the way. It’s my small effort to help 🙂 Here’s to more posts and laughs,
Thomas Ngo, RD
