"What does a healthy diet have to do with spiritual & emotional health? When you are eating the wrong foods for your unique body, when you are over tired, & over stressed, you can’t think clearly. Your mind & heart is cloudy, you might feel angry or sad for no reason, or unable to connect - with others, with yourself, or with Spirit. Often we think the health of our body is separate from our emotional & spiritual selves, but like everything, all our parts are connected. Nourish one part & you also nourish the others."
"We are programmed to feel that giving up equals failure, and consequently we run ourselves into the ground or feel bad about ourselves for not persevering. But there are times when letting go is the healthiest & wisest thing we can do for ourselves in that moment."
"Weight loss does not make people happy. Or peaceful. Being thin does not address the emptiness that has no shape or weight or name. Even a wildly successful diet is a colossal failure because inside the new body is the same sinking heart."
