Making Fit & Healthy Simple Again: Yuri Elkaim
“It's easier to start the day healthy than to finish the day healthy. So, whatever you can do to front-load your day whether it be a workout, your green juice, or meditation, get as much done early in the day as possible. Allow yourself to be human and understand that it's going to be much harder to do any of that later in the day if you wait long enough.” – Yuri Elkaim

Power Quotes From The Show
“When you give yourself a certain identity, you kind of box yourself into a stereotype to some degree. So, a lot of people with weight issues can't really identify or visualize themselves as a lean, thin, energetic person. The problem with that is if you can't even see that for yourself as a possibility, then you're not going to act in accordance with that. Our brain is never going to act or our body will never behave in discord with how we see ourselves. So, how we behave and our beliefs; all of this has to be congruent with how we see ourselves showing up in the world which is essentially our self-identity.” – Yuri Elkaim
“It's important for all of us to realize that we're here for a reason. I don't think we'd be here if there wasn't a reason. So tell yourself, ‘I believe I'm here for a reason. Perhaps I'm not too sure what that is but I'm here which means that I'm here for a reason and I'm going to figure it out.' That is part of the spiritual journey of understanding yourself and achieving self-actualization.” – Yuri Elkaim
“Structure equals freedom. When we look at our lives and how we live our days, I really believe that a lot of people have to structure their day. How does structure give us more freedom? When you plan ahead, you don't have to think in the moment. When you think ahead of time, that alleviates the need to make those daily decisions. Meal planning works because the worst question you can ask yourself in the moment, especially with a family, is, ‘What's for dinner?' If you ask that question when it's time for dinner, you've already lost the battle.” – Yuri Elkaim
