The world of veganism is not just about health; there's a lot
of baggage, layers, and levels that make nutrition about politics
and ethics. Although I believed in the plant-based lifestyle and
all the benefits that can come from it, these past 10 years have
been an integration of health transformation rather than living by
an ideology. The truth about diet is that there will always be
extremes from veganism to carnivorism but what's in the middle is
what will actually work for the mass population. - Ronnie

Power Quotes From The
Evolving Through Eating
"There are short-term therapeutic approaches such as
elimination diets and then there are long-term, sustainable
lifestyles and ultimately, our eating habits have to become a
lifestyle and not just one component of our wellness journey. Even
if someone is vegan or plant-based, something is going to change in
their macronutrient ratios or what they're doing. They're going to
incorporate new ideas, experiment, and have an open mind because if
something doesn't change, then they may not be changing; their
identity and their belief systems are not changing. A lifestyle
itself is a reflection of that person's own evolution." -
Diet Is Just One Of Many Healing Tools
"There's a multiple layered process to healing and the diet is
just a tool. It's an access point for healing the human being but
when we get wrapped up and obsessed about the diet, it's actually a
tactic to avoid the spiritual, psychological, and emotional healing
that created the attachment to the diet itself." - Ronnie
90% Of A Diet Is Psychological
"90% of a diet or any health practice is psychological. It's
based on compliance. It's based on belief system adaptation. Does
your belief support the practice? If not then you're going to
self-sabotage someway, somehow. You're going to find a way to not
incorporate whatever it is even though consciously you say,
'Oh, this is the healthiest thing; this is the best thing for
me.' We have this survival and scarcity software which
oftentimes pulls us down from our highest potential and what's best
for us. I saw that happening quite a bit in the nutrition world and
more pronounced in the plant-based community than anything else."
