Kim asks:
What do you eat when you are craving sweets?

The sweetest
Things…

Foods, loaded
With sugar
From Nature…

Real sugar…

Sugar designed
For our bodies
Not, from
The vats
Of man…

Not refined
Not poison
Not so white
It blinds you…
And, it does millions

Once you
Decide what
You won’t eat
You’ll find
Plenty that’s
Far better
To eat…

Wendy asks:
Hey, just wondering, did your family eat healthy growing up? Just thinking about the dinners my mom used to make—ugh, bad patterns were set in motion early, thanks for the truth.

Are you
Kidding
The 50’s
Housewife
Thinking re:
Food
No, not
At all…

The massive
Corporations
Had their
Privacy then…
Not anymore
Educated
Consumers
Have changed
That forever….

We were
All raised
On processed
Sugar, the
Lies of
Nutrition
Nothing
New about it
However…
The fluorescent
Kids are
Eating today
Well, that’s
Beyond…
And, it shows
Look around
The effects
Are everywhere…
Most important
Habits that
Don’t work
For your life
Can
Be broken
And
Habits that
Absolutely do
Work beautifully
Can, easily
Be built…

Heather asks:
How do I convey my concern to my overweight 11 y.o. son without making him feel (like I did as a child) bad about himself? How do I feed him foods he enjoys and motivate him to exercise, when it’s such a huge change from his current lifestyle?

The only
Way by
Doing it
Yourself
Be the
Living
Example of
Wellness and
The children
Will live
What they
See…do you
And he will
Do himself
With you….

Nadia asks:
Just curious, do you do anything besides yoga as regular exercise? I’m thinking about getting back into running…Can’t beat the runner’s high and how you feel after a good sweat! Love you and keep up the sexiness!

A good
Sweat
And
Sexiness….

Exactly!

Yes, I do
Whatever
I’m in the
Mood to
Do…movement
Of all kinds

Went for
A bike
Ride the
Other day

A hike
The day
Before….

Gardening
Who knew
But sweat
I did
Muscles that
I haven’t felt
In years
I did the
Next day….

Any/all
Movement
Because I
Can and
Yoga, me
One hour
For me
With me
For more
Reasons
Than most
Could imagine….

You are
From the
Running
Tribe you
Must run!!

Katherine asks:
I was wondering how to use the daily caloric consumption guide without weighing myself?

The spirit
Of the law
Not the letter….
You know
What weight
Range you
Are in…
Only to
See how
Much fuel
You need
To eat
To be lean
And
You do….
The opposite
Of everything
Millions have
Been taught
Is
The point and
Eating at the
Very least
Three meals
A day…

Victoria asks:
What do you think of Dr. Graham’s book 80/10/10? I have been following it more or less with my husband. Do you believe raw food is better than cooked b/c of the enzymes that are live? Do you believe that cooked foods are addicting?

I don’t
And
Suggesting
Raw for
The epidemic
And it is
Of obesity
Facing millions
Is well
What it is…
Let’s start
With movement
And
Whole more
Than processed
Then a little
Lean muscle
Mass and
Cardio endurance
And, now
We are
Talking solution
To more
Than most
Could imagine
Possible…
I don’t
Think of
Him..
Only the
Truth about
Wellness…

Dawn asks:
Besides eating whole foods, do you also suggest limiting fat grams (i.e. 10-20% per day) for each meal, if one’s goal is to be super lean, strong and healthy??

Eating whole
Means reducing
Fat intake
To a %
You don’t
Have to
Think about
But, if it’s
Training you
Want to do
15 to 20%
Of your total
Daily caloric
Intake as
Fat means
You’ll get
Lean, lean
lean…
And
If you don’t
Eat anything
Over that
You’ll never
Have to think
About it..
i.e. whole
Foods…

Yes
And
Yes…
