dear colleen...

Imagine yourself 20 years from today. You walk into a room, and standing there before you is your younger self. You look at this person with an almost parental sense of duty to guide her through the next two decades. What would you say? My words of wisdom might include to find joy in everyday moments, nurture friendships, and to not sweat the small stuff. I would also say this: stop wasting precious time trying to be “perfect” and start listening to your body, as it will tell you everything you need to know—especially when it comes to finding peace with food, your weight, and, ultimately, yourself. If you’re a woman in the United States, odds are that you’ve been on a diet (an astounding 90 percent of women in this country…

The very first diet I went on was in the spring before I graduated middle school. I bought a pocket-sized calorie counter and logged everything I ate in the spiral notebook that…

veganism saved my life

In a country where the leading causes of death are complications from type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer, food can play a central role in digging our graves—especially when weighing the long-term effects of the Standard American Diet. The silver lining is that the opposite also holds true: many of the very diseases plaguing our country can also be prevented and even reversed. Writer Emily Hunt Kivel spoke with five people who, against the odds, learned how deeply entrenched their food choices were with their deadly diagnoses. They are living proof that veganism can indeed save lives. How Paul Did It Brother Paul Cameron’s life was rich. It was rich in community—with a large network of friends, family, and church to fill his life. It was rich in music…
