Inspiration always has its roots. Especially when it relates to healthy lifestyle. For me, people who live vibrant lives with beautiful purpose are a true source of inspirational vibes. I believe their quotes will encourage others (me included) to live more mindful and healthy.
“I get questions from the Nutrition Stripped community and on social media about programs from folks who have little to no formal education in biology, nutrition, counseling, anatomy & physiology, etc. maybe an online course. I get it, it can be enticing seeing someone promote a quick fix 5-day detox to “feel better quick” when you’re desperate for change, but in reality, we need to take our pace much slower, focus on nourishing whole foods, implement new behaviors and lifestyle changes that work for YOUR body. Not as sexy as the former, right? But it’s pretty simple …” McKel Hill, MS, RDN, LDN, founder of nutritionstripped.com
About Our Optimal Weight
“For many of us, our leanest livable weight is heavier than our dream weight. I urge people to aim for their leanest livable weight, rather than below it. Embrace it—it’s where your body wants you to be, it’s easy to maintain, and you can be healthy there.”
“The majority of dieters regain the weight they lost within a couple years. The reason for this is that our bodies are set up to resist weight loss—they have no idea we want to lose weight.”
“You can be healthy at almost any weight—within your set range—so instead of focusing on the number, why not just focus on being healthy? Even better, it’s actually easier to improve your health than it is to lose weight. Consider this—studies of exercise routinely find that after starting an exercise program, people’s health improves (i.e, their heart rate and blood pressure) well before they any lose weight.”

“I thought I was a good multitasker until a brain scientist told me that no one is good at it. Being present and engaged in one thing allows me to do that one thing really well. In practice, that means being completely present in meetings—even sometimes ask coworkers to turn computers and phones off during meetings—and scheduling shorter meetings.
Anyone can fill time and sound important, but are you getting any work done? Oftentimes, a 20-30-minute meeting is just as efficient as an hour.” Christopher Gavigan, Co-Founder & Chief Purpose Officer in The Honest Company.
About making vegan dining oh so fine!
“To give vegetables centerplate, to make it inviting, it has to be the whole experience not just food. We pride ourselves on giving you a fine dining experience.” Co-owner Joy Pierson of Candle 79, vegan restaurant in NYC.
This little quote really resonates with my heart, because we have been in this restaurant in New York City. It was a delightful experience. The welcoming and cozy atmosphere is a central element of their place where everyone feels that green is the way to go! Put it on your list when you are in New York next time.
Wish you lots of love and inspiration to become a better version of yourself every day!
