Jackie Keller owner of NutriFit® has helped and educated so many get in shape, stay in shape and enjoy eating healthy, and now I get a chance to be on her show as a guest.
I am excited to tell you that I did do the show as you can see from the video above.
OK so you know how when you watch someone do an interview and they hit their mic with their hands, on accident, and you say. Hey dummy stop hitting your mic! Well I did it twice so know I am the dummy…
Jackie asked some insightful and thought out questions about me, my cancer and On Purpose Magazine and then we did a cooking spot you won’t want to miss. We made a super meal for those who are fighting cancer and for those who want to protect themselves from cancer.
As many of my readers know I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer this last year and I am fighting the good fight to keep my health in check. I am still in treatment and Kale as become my newest friend.
I got a chance to interview Jackie awhile back and had such a great time and learned so much from her. She is now a regular guest blogger on On Purpose Magazine.
Check out her many articles on health and wellness and my favorites, her healthy recipes.

I love steak and burgers and heavy sauced pastas. I am not a huge sugar fan, but I do love bread and I love my salt.
My recent changes in diet have been to heavily reduce salt as my treatments (androgen deprivation – taking all the testosterone out of my body) have made my hands swell badly and reducing salt is what I have been told to do to help this issue. I have also become a type 2 diabetic from the treatments and so I have to watch my sugar intake.
I am learning to use herbs and spices and am now cooking a lot of greens, mushrooms and other veggies. I am not quite vegan, but have reduced my intake of meat.
I still eat some grass raised beef and organic free range chicken, but not like I have cut down a lot.
In the video I mentioned information about too many antioxidants. There is new research that gives warnings about taking too many antioxidant supplements. Antioxidants are still good for you, but we may be a bit too exuberant with our suplementation.
Everything we talk about in this video about getting antioxidants from food is correct. These articles speak to getting too many from supplementation. Here is a great place to find out more about this from Dr. Oz
And from Dr. Weil
I hope to talk be able to speak with Jackie on many other subjects ahead. – JW
JW Najarian, Founder of the on-line magazine On Purpose Magazine (OnPurposeMagazine.com), spent over 35 years as a computer and network engineer and project manager, getting the opportunity to work in many different industries at the small and fortune 500 corporate levels.
2006, one year before the complete crash of the real estate markets, JW decided to totally change careers and moved into commercial real estate.
In an attempt to help the commercial markets, JW started the Commercial Real Estate Professionals and Investors Group (CREPIG.COM), which now reaches over 40,000 real estate investors and professionals.
JW interviewed bankers, brokers, lenders and world economists and delivered that content to the CRE market to try and find connect his group members and the industry with answers.
During this time JW became active in philanthropic causes. As a member of the board of Humanity Unites Brilliance, that organization generated over $2 million in humanitarian giving in just 2 years and also as the Los Angeles coordinator for Feed333 in December of 2008 working with the Salvation Army, Feed the Children and The NBA Players Association we were able to serve over 5000 families over 20,000 meals, hygienic products and toys in one day, to the working poor in South Central, Los Angeles all a part of the largest one day food distribution in the United States.
JW had already caught the interview bug and was now interested in producing content with intent and purpose. On Purpose Magazine was created to create interesting, educational, entertaining content that had a purpose or had the potential to help or enlighten. JW has interviewed over 200 celebrities about their foundations and causes and gets them to do shout outs to the vets, he also interviews bestselling authors and tries to help new and up and coming authors with their book promotions.
JW is a survivor of child sexual abuse and a 5 year addiction to meth-amphetamines. More recently (April 2013), JW has been diagnosed with a very aggressive stage 4 prostate cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.
“I believe that my journey and my diagnosis is a gift that has helped me become more grateful, forgiving, empathetic and more alive than ever. I have been able to come to grips with a terrible self worth and self loathing and I am glad to be able to say that I can now own my story and drop the shame and blame.”
This has made the message the On Purpose Magazine puts out even more important to JW. JW’s goal is to leave the planet a little better for being here and the greatest gift he has ever received is when he is told that something he did or said made a difference in another’s life so JW loves to interview authors and specialists on all the different abuses many of us suffer from.
