- 8:25 - #1 Tip/Focus Area - Eat More Real Food and Less Processed Food
- Your Mantra Statement: “I like to eat and drink foods that nourish me and help me feel my best. I do. Taking time to plan ahead, so that I often pick healthy foods, is time well-spent. No one else can do this for me. I do this so I can feel and be my best.”
- Top Facts/Reminders/Actions:
- Weight loss and feeling good in your body is 80% the quality of the food you eat and 20% exercise.
- Eat MORE foods that live in the wild, and grow on trees and plants, and eat LESS food that's manufactured or packaged in factories. Eat ALL of the whole and real foods (proteins, veggies, fruits, eggs, nuts) you want, until you're full.
- 11:41- Drink more water.
-“Every single thing you put in your mouth makes you healthier or less healthy.”
- 15:27 - Any time you feel as though you’ve gotten off track from eating more real food and less processed – start a food journal. Track and write down EVERYTHING you eat. (Or use your favorite app.)

- 22:26 - #2 Tip/Focus Area – Rest
- Your Mantra Statement: “I make sure I get quality sleep, because when I'm rested I think more clearly, I'm healthier, and I'm better able to handle stress.”
- Top Facts/Reminders/Actions:
- Bad sleep on a regular basis can lead to weight gain, illness, and a lack of alertness, memory loss, lower job performance, and a bad mood.
- Sleep deprivation can impair your thinking as much or more than alcohol, the effect of lost sleep is similar to being drunk.
- Not enough sleep on a regular basis can cause slower brain function, weight gain, moodiness, stress, and lower immune functions. The average adult needs 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep a night.
- Experts Recommend: Stick to a schedule. Exercise. Take a hot shower or bath before bed. Make your bed and bedroom as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Avoid eating just before bed. Give yourself at least 2 hours from the last food you eat to when you sleep.
