It all Started with a Vision of Transformation…

Hello and thanks for visiting! 

Pizza Beer Yoga was created by Michael Tamez, a healthy living advocate on a mission to upgrade the outdated approach to health & wellness.

Between fad dieting, supplements, and conflicting nutritional information, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. For this reason, we’re bringing it back to basics. We believe everyone should have the privilege to live a balanced life – free from guilt, shame, and limitation.

We promote holistic diversity. Our blog topics include nutrition, relationships & communication, exercise & yoga, leisure & travel, craft beer and, finances, career, spirituality…..and everything in between. 

It’s time to think outside the rigid and structured diet box. Actually, let’s ditch that archaic box and create a new model of living. A model that allows you to be yourself while enjoying the foods and activities you love. 

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of garbage out there when it comes to health and wellness websites. From counting calories to eating butter to buying copious amounts of “top quality” expensive supplements – we’re bombarded with it all.  And frankly, we’re just tired of all the BS!


At, you can finally have that breath of fresh air. Here’s our promise to you:


No click-bait ANYWHERE on our site

Click-bait are ads cleverly disguised as articles designed to influence online behavior and invoke emotional reaction – thus creating an urgent need to click on the ad. You’ve seen these ads many times. These are ads with scandalous headlines like “70 year old grandma looks 35 again without botox” or “legal steroid turning men into beasts” or “remove your eye wrinkles and bags in 1 minute.

Although there are several dozen click-bait generating websites, the most popular click-bait content comes from shady sites like Taboola, RevContent, and Outbrain.

We understand websites that advertise with scandalous click-bait have to pay bills, but these ads are never related to the content of the article or website and are often very misleading and perhaps even dangerous. Sadly, most every big website uses these deceptive marketing tactics.

We do display advertisements on our site. However, they’re always related to the article and/or blog post content. Each ad is designed to enhance the reader’s experience with recommended products to live a healthy and balanced life.


No bullshit Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) products (including expensive supplements, workout DVDs, pills, potions, or powders)

We love pyramids… just not ones that are designed to rip you off!


No ridiculous absolute claims

On, we present information and invite our readers to make an informed decision. The information is designed to have readers question things.

You’ll never be presented any silly and outrageous claims like putting sticks of butter in expensive coffee to transform your health.

Nor will we ever claim that the chocolate Gods will come down from the sun and energize your body either.

Sigh… if only we lived in a world where scammers and con artists didn’t exist…


No Obsessions

Another trend on many wellness websites is the tendency for orthorexia nervosa (an unhealthy obsession to eat healthy and constantly engage in healthy activities).

In a world that’s not completely organic and clean, it’s impossible to be 100% organic and clean. Hence the reason for pizza and beer.

We’re not saying eating pizza and drinking beer everyday is a good thing either. We believe in moderation and balance. Too much of anything (including the good stuff) can be harmful.


No religious dogma or political agenda

Some wellness websites have a bad habit of mixing their religious and/or political views into their content. Refreshingly, we don’t.

Although some of our topics are spiritual in nature, we (just like with diet and lifestyle) promote spiritual diversity. In other words, we don’t adhere to any specific belief.

Rather, we encourage visitors of our site to connect within and discover what works (or doesn’t work) in the spiritual/religious realm. And as far as politics – we choose to stay away. Some articles may call out government BS when it comes to our food supply or lifestyle related issues, but that’s as far as we’ll take it. Besides, we always try to include a solution to any BS we write about.

We have no interest in being “health rangers.”


No promotion of Vegetarian, Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, or whatever the latest fad diet is

We encourage holistic diversity. When it comes to diets, remember this: nobody knows your body better than your body knows your body! Therefore, we embrace all diets and lifestyle choices. We’re open to all concepts (as long as it promotes balanced living).

We offer relief from those sites that “vegangelize” and make you feel bad for eating meat. Or try to convince you to eat like a caveman either.

On our site, you are free to experiment with foods. In fact, we encourage it! In order for you to give your body what it wants, you have to know what it’s telling you.

That’s why listening to your body is the most “bulletproof” tool you could ever have in your health and wellness toolbox.

No health expert or “avocado” guru could ever convince your body otherwise…

Our intention is to help you discover what works exclusively for you. We teach you how to listen to the most powerful health guru ever… your own body.  Again, nobody knows your body better than your body knows your body!

Throughout this site, you’ll discover the tools, techniques, and secrets you need to transform every area of your life.

Are you ready to learn how pizza, beer and yoga can help you live in balance?

my weight loss progression

my extreme weight loss journey

Michael Tamez lost 105 pounds and reversed his life threatening illnesses. He’s a Lifestyle Coach, Wellness Author, Wellness Blogger, and Healthy Living Advocate.

I was morbidly obese and plagued with dangerously high blood pressure.

My sleep apnea was frightening. I fell asleep driving and nearly died in a car accident.

I ate fast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – washed down with a 2 liter of soda every day.

My diet was toxic. My life was miserable.

The car accident forced me to wake up (literally). It was the a-ha, life-saving moment that led me to where I am today.

I used food to heal my body, exercised to lose weight, and practiced mindful living to keep the weight off permanently.

Overall, I lost 105 pounds and cured my life threatening illnesses without medications, surgery, or dieting.

My name is Michael Tamez and I’m a Lifestyle Coach, Wellness Author & Blogger, and Healthy Living Advocate

My work is inspired by all aspects of holistic health & wellness, green living, financial education, and metaphysical spirituality. My books, articles, blog posts, interviews, videos, and talks are infused with invaluable life lessons that are aligned with my mission.

I created Pizza Beer Yoga from the healthy and balanced living chapter of my book. This website is designed to inspire a permanent shift in the way you eat, think, feel, live and love.

I believe in balance and feel that everyone should be able to enjoy a healthy and balanced life.

I’m certified as a Holistic Health Coach and listed on the national board for the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). 

I’m also certified as an Eco-Consultant and Energy Healing Practitioner. Through this website, my blog, and my books, I have combined my passion for health, sustainability, yoga, craft beer, and raising of collective consciousness all in one place.

My most influential education was from my 15-year personal health and life transformation. I was morbidly obese, had severe sleep apnea, high blood pressure, advanced gum disease, and a whole lot of resentment for myself.

Not only did I reverse all of those conditions, but I also transformed the dysfunctional relationship I had to food, to my lifestyle, and to my true self.

In a period of 18 months, I lost five people in my close family. Yes, five people! Because of the tremendous impact these losses had on me, I was forced to have unforeseen breakthroughs in my life with things that were the hardest to deal with. 

After experiencing all the devastating and life changing deaths, I was highly inspired to write a transformative book about life! Through my journey of experiences, I realized my life’s purpose. It is to follow my passion of healthy living, and help as many people as I can who are struggling with health conditions and obesity related issues.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, exercise/fitness support, and preventive health. This education combined with what I have experienced in my life is what fuels my passion for helping people create a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

My mission is to inspire a permanent shift in the way people eat, think, feel, live and love. Please read my true story of a loser for more details. You can also visit my blog or check out my latest TV and radio interviews.
