how to eat via zen habits

This week’s words of wisdom are in the form of a blog entry rather than a quote.

Leo at Zen Habits, after years of terrible health (overweight, addicted to junk food, smoker), is in the best shape of his life and enjoying life to the fullest as a minimalist. He recently shared his minimalist diet and philosophy on eating in this post titled: The Simplest Diet for Lean Fitness. I am quite impressed with his diet, which is a slightly cleaner version of my own.

Instead of summarizing or outlining (because I don’t want to leave anything out), please go and read The Simplest Diet for Lean Fitness. It is worth every second and could potentially change your life and your health forever. If you are still low on self-love and not ready to start living for your highest self just yet, do it for your son or daughter or husband or future son, daughter and husband. Do it for your mom or dad or best friend or even your dog. Do it and you’ll be glad you did.

If you’re one of those people who’ve already got healthy-eating completely dialed in, then please share a secret or two. The rest of us need your wisdom.

It wasn’t until after I wrote this post that I realized it’s not Wednesday any more. Whoops.


  1. That was a great article. What he is doing is so simple, like going back to basics. In the days before processed foods, when choices were limited to what was grown (and natural!) no one was really obese, were they? I’m sloooowly improving my eating habits. Adding roasted veggies with dinner, snacking on fruit or nuts, alternating between diet coke (I’m an addict) with a cup of tea. Hopefully, by the end of the year, I’ll notice a change in my health & figure.

    Have a great day, Lucy!


    1. Good for you, Melissa! Baby steps. I’ve learned that we are habits of creature. The more we do something, the more we want to do it. The more healthy food I eat, the more I want to eat healthy food. Don’t ever give up!
