Thoughts are things. Negativity is what kills you... It's tough to do, but you've got to work at living, you know?

How do you know what’s really organic? Today, there’s all these impurities Jack Lalanne Picture Quote

Exercise Quotes, Food Quotes, Nature Quotes, Water Quotes

How do you know what's really organic? Today, there's all these impurities in the water and the air. The water for the fruits and vegetables has junk in it.

It's survival of the fittest. You can't have everything perfect, that's impossible, but the fit survive.

Lie Quotes, People Quotes

I tell people that the scales lie. You may have played basketball and weighed 175 pounds, with a 30-inch waist, back when you were in college. And you may still weigh 175 at 55. But you probably have a 35-inch waist and you've probably lost 30 or 40 pounds of muscle -- and gained 30 or 40 pounds of fat. The tape measure doesn't lie. Get that tape measure out and put it on your hips and your waist. Keep checking it. And keep exercising and cutting those calories down until that tape measure gets close to where you were in your prime.
