Michael Tamez is the Co-Founder of Pizza Beer Yoga - a diet-free lifestyle brand. Although he's in the best shape of his life right now he had to overcome adverse health issues.

He lost over 100 pounds and reversed his life-threatening, obesity-related illnesses without dieting, medications, or surgery. With food, exercise & yoga, meditation, and lifestyle modifications, he healed his body from the inside out.

This life-transforming experience motivated him to become a certified holistic health and wellness coach. The certification combined with the knowledge from his health transformation enables him to make a positive impact on the global obesity epidemic.

His mission is to support those who struggle with sustaining permanent weight loss, yo-yo/fad dieting, and obesity-related health issues. He mentors people who want to establish a healthy and functional relationship with food, mood, and lifestyle.

Essentially, he teaches people how to listen to the greatest doctor, health guru, and lifestyle expert on the planet - their own body. Bringing presence back to this innate ability, people are empowered to stop dieting and start living.
