In 2013, I suddenly heard people calling me “Frank the Tank.” I couldn’t understand what they were talking about, how could a once slim guy like myself suddenly be compared to a German tank?
It wasn’t until I stepped on the scale that I discovered that they were right, I had allowed myself to balloon up to 240 pounds and entered a period of deep depression. I tried counting calories, but it was too overwhelming. I tried keeping a food journal, but it wasn’t visual enough for me to learn what I should be eating. My mom had always taught me to be mindful about what I ate, but I never understood what she meant until I began thinking about portion control.
I decided to act, and that’s when my life changed for the better. I began reducing my portion size to unit of fists. It was a simple, easy method that I could remain consistent with. This method combined with a rigorous exercise plan really worked for me; I ended up losing 50 pounds in six months. I was ecstatic and felt grateful to be alive once again! Soon, people began calling me “Frank the Swank!”
I wanted to spread the happiness my own weight loss journey brought to me. Therefore, I decided to create a technology where I could have portion control and a visual food journal, all with the snap of a picture.
I welcome you to begin your own magical journey of self-discovery by using FeastByFist!

"Eat! What's in your picture?"
When I was young, I would use food as a coping method for stress. I started to stand out due to my height and weight, which caused more anxiety and further worsened my emotional eating.
I've tried a variety of fad diets, and they essentially always involve some degree of food shaming and deprivation. I felt anxious about food and started yo-yo dieting as a result of the "eat this, not that" type of food relationship. I would swiftly lose weight by eating a restrictive diet, but after prolonged and excessive self-deprivation, I’d lose control and binge.
With a busy executive job in high-tech industry and multiple gestational diabetes diagnoses, I came to the realization that this dieting lifestyle is unsustainable and that, in order to successfully lose weight and stay healthy, I must "listen" to my body and cultivate a positive connection with food.
If you want to learn about mindful eating, need to lose weight to stay healthy, or are just curious about FeastByFist, please feel free to reach out. We'd love to help you achieve a better version of yourself.

When the COVID-19 hit us hard and the United States shut down in March 2020, I realized that the community needs to see something positive in the constant flow of fear and uncertainty.
There're a lot of challenges in my life and when I looked back on how I could make it so far, the answer has always pointed to the kindness from my community. A warm act to help clean up the community is my choice of giving back to all those who have helped me and it's proven to be one of the most rewarding experience.
I took it upon myself and my family to pick up trash along the major roads in my town, one day at a time. There were 90-degree days where we ran out of water and days where people looked at us with confusion however, most days we're met with a gentle honk, a thumb-up, or a loud "thank you!". It hasn't been easy to go out every single day for eight months. The trash somehow showed up on the streets only hours after I cleaned up and I thought to myself "Will this ever end?" Nevertheless, every pursuit in life is a journey. While the future is always elusive, we can always try to enjoy the process and the people we meet along the way.
A better community is built with kind thoughts and warm acts. Whether your community is your town, your school, or your diet buddies, join me in this movement of making your community great again!
