    “Approaching something with love doesn't make it easy. It doesn't mean you're letting yourself off the hook, it doesn't mean that you're not doing the hard work.”

    “Lovingly also means listening to your authentic voice.”

    “You don't have to love your body every day, but you have to respect your body every day.”

    “Our thoughts are not always right. But they need our attention because they're trying to protect us and save us.”

    “Everything in life and health is all about neutralizing and not categorizing things as so black and white.”

    “People can weaponize nutrition information if they're not in the right state of mind to receive it.”
