Dave Asprey, author of The Bulletproof Diet. My husband and I drink his brand of coffee daily; and I seek out meat, butter and eggs from animals raised on pasture, thanks to the guiding words of Asprey.

Joshua Rosenthal, founder of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Where I learned that no single dietary approach works for all people. I learned to be a food detective, to experiment with food, to be open-minded toward all dietary theories.


Books that I highly recommend:

  • Eat Fat, Get Thin, by Mark Hyman -- the truth about high quality dietary fats and why your body needs them

  • The Bulletproof Diet, by Dave Asprey -- you'll learn why the quality of your food really does matter

  • By the Numbers, by Sean Manseau -- his classes taught me much of what I know about how to move in the gym

  • The Metabolic Effect Diet, by Jade and Keoni Teta -- how to keep your insulin levels low so that you can finally tap into stored body fat as fuel

  • The Blue Zones, by Dan Buettner -- a fun-spirited book about people who live to be 100 years or more, and how
