- “Imagine back when, you lived closer to the earth, and you were perhaps sleeping on the earth in a little hut. And outside were all the plants you were using to feed your body. There were times of winter and times of summer, there were times of scarcity and times of abundance. Your body would naturally move into those times of scarcity. And in times of scarcity when you’re taking in less food and your atmosphere is one that’s more barren than full, you have the experience of the opposites. So part of the problem now is whenever you go into WholeFoods, it’s abundant! There’s always strawberries, like always. There’s always blueberries. And so we have to create what seems like an artificial experience of barreness or a season of scarcity so that we give our organs a freakin’ break.” – Cate Stillman
- “Most people I work with in Body Thrive have lost the feeling of true hunger. And there’s a disconnect between the feeling of true hunger being the only path to true satiation.” – Cate Stillman
- “When you’re emptiness, you’re full of possibility.” – Cate Stillman
- “The body is smart and the mind is smart and the soul is smart. And I radically believe in the intelligence of you, of your organism and your mind-body-soul configuration. I believe if you give yourself the opportunity to release that which it wants to, so the body will release what it wants to, the liver will release what it wants to, the colon will release what it wants to, the arteries will release what it wants to.” – Cate Stillman
- “When we’re not so busy, when our bodies are not so busy digesting the food that we’re putting in, we create the space to digest the other things that we’ve distracted or pushed to the side.” – Rachel Peters
