A Message of Gratitude


This is it—the end of a wondrous year marked by many milestones hit, a few setbacks perhaps, and one dream realized. This is real life, after all…filled with twists and turns that test us every day of the year.

As 2018 wraps up, I want to take a moment to share my heartfelt gratitude to you for taking this path together. You gave me permission to walk with you on your journey toward a better life of health and well-being. The French call this state joie de vivre—the feeling of joy that lies within life’s everyday moments, those moments when you feel unbridled in thoughts and actions, when you’re fully present in the moment. When you’re in your best health, you’re better able to find joy even amidst setbacks.

It’s this ‘joy of life’ that I strive to help you attain.

Your trust is something I won’t take for granted, and as we walk together into 2019 as part of this rich community, I commit to continuing to discover and share expertly researched wellness information, the latest in healthy aging science, and practical switches you can apply to your life, family and home, all with the goal of supporting you in living a better life.

In reflection of 2018, there are a few moments that brought me immense joy, each one a stepping stone toward the growth of our community…

Glow15, my first book, based on Nobel prize-winning science, became a New York Times Bestseller — this was a dream come true!

I also had the great honor of meeting and interviewing Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, the 2016 Nobel Prize winner in Medicine for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy.

The launch of the Glow15 and subsequent 9-Week Switch courses were a success. The programs enabled me to personally guide hundreds of individuals through the principles of activating autophagy, as well as a ketogenic program, helping them to achieve their goals and set themselves up for a healthier and happier life.

I had the privilege to interview over 80 medical, nutritional and scientific experts in the groundbreaking docuseries, The Real Skinny on Fat, sharing life-changing information to help people transform their health.

I look forward to supporting you in achieving your goals of good health in 2019. You and I have work to do, and there’s no better time than now to start focusing on the year ahead. So, let’s get glowing!

Sending peace, love and best wishes for a magical holiday season and New Year.
