crazy sexy diet: self-empowered glowing and the science of kris carr

Kris Carr has a kind of shine that you want to hang out in and soak up. I’ve come up with this theory on her radiance: she was born with it (everyone is, many of us severely dim it down and that’s just tragic,) but she is one of the rare ones who surfaced her original soul shine and with devotion, and vegetables, multiplied it to the power of nth.

And…there’s something brighter about people who have stared death down — they look at you from the inside out, without wavering.

Kris Carr deets:
: award-winning documentary film producer of TLC’s Crazy Sexy Cancer.
: creator of the wildly popular CrazySexyLife.com.
: author of best-selling cancer survival guidebook.
: and one of the most dynamic public speakers I’ve seen.

And on January 17, 2011, starting with an appearance on Good Morning America, Kris Carr is releasing Crazy Sexy Diet: Eat Your Veggies, Ignite Your Spark, and Live Like You Mean It!

I bought 10 copies of Crazy Sexy Diet for sistahs this Christmas and the thanks are still rolling in. I think if scores of people watched Food, Inc., and then read and lived the Crazy Sexy Diet we’d make quantum leaps with everything from depression and vitality, to pharmaceutical monopolies to the politics of agriculture.

Kris and I jammed on wellness, love, and kale. Watch ’til the end and you’ll hear how I’ve used Crazy Sexy Diet to get my own glow on (and what I think of Dr. Oz, hint: oo la la.) Here’s a video:

Crazy Sexy Diet. Get it.
Vibrant health,
pronto.

Crazy Sexy Diet is a compassionate approach to an anti-inflammatory way of life. Kris has woven her personal cancer-survival story throughout. Compelling. Practical. Illuminating. Available Monday, January 17, 2011.

You can preview a chapter right here.

And order a copy (or ten) over here.

The experts are gushing:

“Kris has been there, and she brings the depth of her experience to this uplifting book and offers tips from experts and success stories along the way. She even offers a 21-day cleanse with recipes included. Kris Carr is an incredible and tireless advocate for health and she’ll be your coach, confidant, and companion page after page. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have.”
Neal Barnard, M.D.

“Kris Carr makes practical and hopeful suggestions as we face greater and greater numbers of our friends and family falling prey to chronic degenerative disease. I am personally inspired by her example in leading the way for people to take control of their bodies and their health.
T. Colin Campbell, PhD

“Kris Carr titillatingly turns a kitchen into a pharmacy.”
Dr. Mehmet Oz

“Consider this not a diet book, but a guide to living fully; not a meal plan, but a road map to self-empowerment, adorned with Kris’s unrivaled enthusiasm, humor, and compassion.”
Dean Ornish, M.D.

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.
