The key to making healthy decisions is to respect your future self. Honor him or her. Treat him or her like you would treat a friend or a loved one. A Stanford study showed that those who saw a photo of their future self made smarter financial decisions.

The best we can do, to paraphrase Pollan, is to eat whole foods, mostly plants, and not too much.

I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet - lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little - if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

If your mind is at work, we're in danger of reproducing another cliche. If we can keep our minds out of it and our thoughts out of it, maybe we'll come up with something original. Peter Falk

I can be a nice person, but if someone is messing with someone I care about, the tougher side comes out a little more. Daniella Alonso
