Everything I'm telling you...in 2 sentences!

"…the key dietary messages are stunningly simple: Eat less, move more, eat more fruits and vegetables, and don't eat too much junk food. It's no more complicated than that."

-Marion Nestle
(Professor at NYU and author Food Politics, What to Eat, and many more)

I have been a Marion Nestle fan since I read "What to Eat". I appreciate her approach to nutrition and how our culture interacts with food. I first consulted her book when doing a presentation on Splenda last year and found her take on alternative sweeteners very basic: there may be mixed messages on whether or not they are bad, but they definately aren't good! (in my own words)

This 2 sentence quote sums up the basic facts about healthy eating. But is it really that simple? I have a feeling that if it were, we would all be doing it. How can you incorporate this great advice more into your personal life?


  1. Love this statement. It's so basic and obvious and do-able. If only more of us would commit to simplifying!! :)

  2. I like this site. Thanks for sharing this article, great way of bring such topic to discussion. Wow, that was pretty interesting. Inspiring, as well. Thanks for sharing such inspiring experience with us. Great blog, congrats!
