Ageless Manifesto

Ageless Diet, my pathway to sustainable vitality. This lifestyle keeps me feeling and looking good.

Let’s try a new way of talking and writing about the Ageless Diet, which is a lifestyle, not a diet. Though diet is accurate in the sense of it being how you live, what you eat, etc., you know, the dictionary’s definition: the kind of food a person, community, group habitually eat. Then there’s the word lifestyle, it’s waayyyy overused. But for many of us diet is a tricky word because going ageless, as I like to call it, is not about abstemious, spartan (paleo, vegan, raw, goop-like ) living, a constant round robin of detox/cleanse cycles. It’s a sustainable way of living and eating, a way to fix yourself on a cellular level with some grace and fun.

So many diets and celebrity-fired lifestyles seem to focus on how a person looks – fair enough- but ageless living is first and foremost about how we feel. I’ve seen in myself, friends, family, and clients, this shift in consciousness that comes from feeling BETTER in our skin, in our bones, in our joints, in our muscles, and of course – OF COURSE – we end up looking better. In truth, I’ve never looked better than right now. And I’ve never enjoyed such freedom in my bones (and muscles), good nights’ sleep, and robust gastro-intestinal health. My moods are more even. I will say it’s much easier for me to deal with rocks and rolls in life when I feel mostly good all the time. That punky depression that could rear its head is now maybe a down day or two, while I sort through life stuff. And, all this is 98% thanks to a diet and lifestyle that supports me on every single level. Following my Ageless Pathway gives me sustainable vitality. 

I have the tools to keep my body and mind firing on all cylinders. And, I’d say this is where Ageless Diet differs from any number of lifestyle plans being hawked right now. There is revolutionary magic in building strong foundations from your cells outward while still enjoying really really really delicious food. Because all these other plans and diets have weird, nonsensical rules and regulations, and they’re extreme or tasteless (in the true sense of word), and/or unsustainable (for us and our planet!). This diet, this lifestyle, is the best way I know to be free of the hypochondria-infused wellness culture and their silly cures, because we FEEL GOOD (almost) ALL THE TIME. Maybe we have discovered the map to the Garden of Eden within ourselves.

Bottom line: 

The Ageless Pathway charts a course through the health and wellness noise to realign our core fundamentals and reimagine a life full of nourishment, vitality, and fun.
