The minute I met Daphne Oz I knew we had a lot in common. At first I thought it was simply that we’re about the same age and are the offspring of well-known doctors. But then I realized it’s something else: fun is a major priority for both of us.
(Oh, and she also loves Maine, and anyone who loves Maine goes straight to my heart.)
Daphne is co-host of ABC’s hit lifestyle series, “The Chew,” alongside Mario Batali. She’s all about making healthy living fun, easy, and most importantly, delicious. Her second book, Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun, is all about fully inhabiting our lives.
The book sprang from a conversation she was having with girlfriends during which they realized they were living “placeholder” lives: . They they were waiting for their real lives to begin. And Daphne realized it was time to start living as though her real life already had begun. Because, of course, it had.
I sat down with Daphne for a truly delicious conversation about food, weight, parenting, family, style, and filling your life with fun.
In our conversation she revealed the only thing that helped her lose the weight. It’s not a diet, some crazy fitness program, or anything having to do with restriction. I think you’ll be surprised at her delicious, and effective, method for staying healthy and enjoying life all the while.
Which of Daphne’s tips for fully inhabiting your life did you resonate with the most? Have you ever noticed yourself living a placeholder life? If so, what did you do to start fully living? I’d love to hear from you, so leave a comment below!
