And when you get these three in alignment, – the food, the fitness, and the mastery of mindset – I call them the Three Pillars of Success – you will become unstoppable.
When it comes to weight loss, it’s all about the food. A whole foods, low fat plant-based diet is what has brought me personal unparalleled success. It is a way of eating the brings into beautiful alignment health, environmental issues, and a kitchen of compassion.

My life’s work is focused around helping others become the healthiest, happiest person they can possibly be with the foundation of good diet, physical activity, and mindset for success – the inseparable three pillars.
Join me on this healthy, happy and fit journey.
The following is a brief excerpt adapted is from Fit Quickies: 5 Minute Targeted Body-Shaping Workouts by Lani Muelrath, Penguin Publishing, 2013. The book contains the full content of my years of struggle and ultimate success.
I have a long and colorful diet and exercise history. 30 years of constantly battling my weight, being at war with food and with my body, and not having the lasting success I craved, no matter what I did. My weight eventually climbed to a almost 190 pounds. I’m one of those people with a genetic code preset to gain weight easily. The good news, I found, is that with diet and exercise, you can alter the expression of those genes.
For decades, I craved a simple solution, but lasting success was always lost in empty diet and exercise promises. Sound familiar?
My 50-Pound Weight Loss
I now weigh 50 lbs less than I did 15 years ago at my top weight of 189.5. It’s been a journey perhaps not unlike your own. My story has a few interesting twists and I tell it in full transparency to offer hope.
The trail of my long and colorful diet history is littered with dog-eared diet books, stacks of journals, plenty of excess poundage and as those of us with a ‘weight’ problem well know, lots of white-knuckle hunger, tears, and hair-tearing.
It was also during this time and through this process that I developed and deeply utilized the tools that you now find in the Fit Quickies book . When one goes through the tremendous transformation such as I am sharing with you, it is not without just as much attention to mindset and mastery of psychology as to food plan and exercise, as pivotal as they are to optimal results. Without the inner shifts the other two legs of what I call the Three Pillars of Transformation – mindset, diet, and exercise – can be temporary and superficial. You have to keep in mind what you are looking for. Yes, a slim and energetic, healthy body, yet also productivity, fulfillment, and happiness. That’s why I insisted that the Fit Quickies book address – in a big way – all three of these pillars.
Freely eating creates eating freedom
Every day, I am thrilled to walk into my kitchen with the happy knowledge that I have mountains of beautiful, delicious foods to choose from, and which I can eat to my heart’s content until I am full. I know now from years of experience now that this will keep me trim.
The confident joy of staying slim while eating this way never diminishes. I never get tired of the fact that when you get the food right, the fitness is so much simpler, and I can easily keep my shape with the simple tools of Fit Quickies, hiking and walking, and other elements of play that are all part of being a good animal.
It is a wonderful way to live.
People ask me how they should eat to lose weight so I tell them exactly how I eat. In the Nutrition chapter of my book, Fit Quickies: 5 Minute Targeted Body Shaping Workouts, I describe it in great detail. And in my Plant-Based Blueprint, I have 16 days of food journal and notes to give you insights into my successful eating style. I put the Plant-Based Blueprint together to give you a guide that I hope is helpful to you in your own healthy transformation.
What made the difference? Why success after so many years? What had changed?
