I’ve been to a ton of events for business owners over the past year: conferences, trainings, networking events, etc. The people I’ve met at all of these have been great, but something stood out about the attendees of the last two that I went to: they were all hot.
They were full of energy. Glowing skin and bright eyes. Fit and well dressed. They had some sort of irresistible nature about them, kind of an “I’ll have what she’s having” thing going on.
The events? Marie Forleo’s Rich Happy and Hot Live conference in November and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s live conference in Miami Beach this past weekend. The majority of the attendees were women, but there was a nice handful of smart, energetic and enthusiastic (of course they were, they were surrounded by hot women!) gentlemen in attendance as well.
I’m not just talking about appearance here – these broads were really up to something. Enthusiastic with a go-getter attitude. Full of creativity. I’ve had the pleasure of keeping in touch with many of them and seeing what they are doing in the world. They’re on fire: passionately working on projects through all hours of the night, building empires while they care for their families, continuously investing in their personal and professional growth. What do they all have in common? They friggin’ love their veggies.
No joke. I thought it was only the select nutrition nutbars who worshipped fresh vegetable juice and other living foods. I was wrong: these people know, from marketing coaches and photographers to consultants and travel agents that good food fuels their creative spark.
You could see the difference just from what the attendees were toting. Instead of helping themselves to bagels, low-fat muffins and danish, they were noshing on fresh fruit, trail mix and lara bars. Instead of being served coffee, sugar and chemical sweeteners, they had herbal tea and coconut water. No wonder nobody was dozing off after 7 hours of speakers.
It’s really no surprise – we’ve all heard the saying “you are what you eat” – and that is 100% true. What you eat gets broken down at a cellular level and builds your internal organs, your skin, your hair, your eyes, your muscles, everything. You are literally walking around as the food you ate.
If you want to have foggy thinking and feel lackluster and sluggish, eat processed, packaged, and chemicalized crapola. Want to join forces with those sexy entrepreneurs who are really going for it? Eat more foods that actually have a life force. Meaning, they would actually rot if you left them out on the counter. Ever notice that the Honey Nut Cheerios that get stuck under the car seat for months look exactly the same as when they came out of the box?
So what do you want to build your body out of? What do you want to fuel your energy and creativity with? Leave a comment and let me know if you notice what foods make you feel amazing and what makes you feel like only a shadow of yourself.
