Words of Wisdom.

Here are some brief highlights from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Conference that I attended in NY this past weekend.  I was one of over 4,000 health coaches who attended.  It was a fun-filled, information packed, and inspiring weekend.

“The absence of speaking is what keeps people ill.” – Joshua Rosenthal

“Restrictive eating patterns in children and teenagers lead to an increased risk of obesity and other eating disorders.” – Sally Fallon Morrell

In 1990, obesity rates in the US were less then 15% in every state.  Now, only about twenty years later, every state is exceeding a 20% obesity rate. Pennsylvania has a 25-29% obesity rate.  Meaning if you and three friends get together for a night, one of you is obese.  – Dr. Mark Hyman
