"A study on low-income families showed that just the simple
act of eating together with your children for just four meals a
week, and it could've been any meal, dramatically protected kids
against obesity and disordered eating. These are protective
measures that were stimulated and created simply by eating together
as a family. Things like this are not being talked about enough in
the conversation of food, calorie management, and trying to be
healthy. Acts like this are what really make it all special."

Power Quotes From The
Do You Have Poor Food Habits?
"We might be under the illusion that we're making choices of
what we eat on our own free will but if you research, it clearly
shows and indicates that what you eat is heavily influenced by how
you eat and more interesting with whom you're eating."
- Shawn Stevenson in Eat Smarter
Find Your Wellness Tribe
"Get yourself around good people. Immerse yourself in what
Michael Beckwith would call a beloved community of people that
support your greatness. It doesn't mean that they cater to you and
they tell you that everything is going to be okay all the time.
It's more so they create a space for you to grow while giving you
some insight and advice but they also challenge you and make you
think differently. Get yourself in a community of good people and
make that a priority." - Shawn Stevenson
Good Health Is Contagious
"As you grow, then you will start to become a light and source
of inspiration for other people and that's what paying it forward
really means. There is solid data that health is contagious. A
positive frame of mind and solution-oriented thinking and success
are all contagious as well. Today, more than ever, you have the
power to do your own research, tap in, and learn how to feed your
spirit. Make it a mandate to do that every day. Get a positive
perimeter set up to simply remind you of your greatness." -
