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.

How you listen is how you live. (A poem for being of service.)

You may hear this as an order, an invitation, or as the opportunity of lifetimes.

How you listen is how you live.
Can you hear the women crying?
Can you hear the soil gasping for clean air?
And did you hear that? That’s the sound of a good man asking, How can I serve?

How do you serve?

Danielle-Laporte-Gift-Transaction

So, is this a gift, or a transaction? Because…your entire life is not a business deal.

I’ve been thinking a lot about transactional giving these days. I’ll tweet about you if you tweet about me. They owe me a favour. You listen for five minutes to them so they’ll listen when it’s your turn to talk. Even Stevens. Transactional giving can be a beautiful commerce of support, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that interplay. But if all of our giving is to secure our getting…then, well, it’s gross.

Danielle-Laporte-Love-the-egg-you're in

Love the egg you’re in. (This is not a sermon on patience. But…)

Savour the simplicity of your pre-dreams-come-true time. Love the egg you’re in. Because not too long from now–and right on time, you’ll be spreading your wings and life will never be the same again.

Rock your emptiness

Rock your emptiness

But what if we rocked our emptiness? Felt the perimeter of ourselves. Relished the silence. Made friends with the peace that’s always waiting for us. What if we got off on the discomfort of our emptiness and let it be creative tension?

Whats-Underneath-Wishful-thinking

What’s underneath wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking is tangled up with craving. We want what we want. So we ignore the evidence that we’re very likely not going to get what we want out of a situation. Craving… wishing. Craving… denial. Craving… tolerating. It’s a wishous cycle.

Don’t worry about being invited back. My Manifesto for Creativity.

Meaningfulness. Reveal myself. Be compassionate. Don’t worry about being invited back. Go there. xo. I jotted this down when I began writing my book. I wanted a manifesto and it had to happen quickly because…I had a book to write.

Life is what happens on the way to the finish line.

If you’re not loving what it feels like between your various life destinations, then get off the ride. Burn the itinerary. Fuck “motivation” and be still long enough to find your inspiration.

Danielle-Laporte-Let-the-Love-in

Let the Love in. Because, “It’s an honour to help you.”

I was in a spiritual tizzy — that’s an esoteric term for 80% emotions-running-wild, and 20% having faith that everything will work out. I can’t remember what it was over (probably divorce papers, or a publishing contract, or buying a house. But it involved documents and beaucoup emotion.)

what-to-do-after-the-breakthrough-danielle-laporte-social-2-2x

What to do after you have a breakthrough. (You’re going to shrink after you expand, so, listen closely.)

Threshold, crossed. You got there. After the grinding, the repetitive strain, the cord-cutting, the screams of release, the bliss of relief — the training paid off. Muscle burn got you across the finish line. Soul fire resurrected you. BREAKTHROUGH.

jerk-final

Why jerks show up in your life.

We attract jerks to burn karma — old agreements to be broken in current time, vows to be rescinded, slates to be wiped clean. We attract jerks for contrast — jerks show us what deception and manipulation feels like. They show us how we DON’T want to feel — which is excellent intel for knowing how we DO want to feel.
