Lifestyle Changes to Avoid Overeating


Deborah Kesten Notable Quotes

“Most people of the last two generations, many don’t know what fresh, whole, real food is, and they don’t know what to do with it. I think it’s a cultural phenomenon.”
Deborah Kesten

“Coming back to the concept of dietary lifestyle—which is what whole person integrative eating is—when Socrates was living, the word diet meant, “way of life,” and over the millennia, over the centuries, it travelled through Europe to mean what it means now, which is a regimented, rigid, strict way of eating.”
Deborah Kesten
