Meet Author and Wellness Coach Diana Stobo

 

 

Today’s interviewee is Diana Stobo who not only shares her writing experience with us but some tips about healthy snacks while at the keyboard.

 

Susan Palmquist (SP)-Tell us about yourself and what you do?

Diana Stobo (DS)-I am an author, motivational speaker, wellness coach and mother.  I began a journey of health after being riddled with health issues and weight.  I formulated an eating plan based on my culinary background and nutritional education.  My mission is to empower others to eat for health vibrance and beauty.  I do this by presenting, speaking, coaching and writing.  I love helping people help themselves.  For most people who want to get healthy, the issue lies in not knowing where to start.  I am a “how” person, I provide tools and inspiration to ensure success.

SP-When did you decide to write your first book?

DS-“Get Naked Fast, a guide to stripping away the foods that weight you down” started after I wrote down my life story.  I called it “My body Naked”.  Then, I was asked to speak about my transformation into health.  People wanted to know how they could “get naked” too.  So I formulated a 14 page pamphlet to hand out, and as it evolved into a more substantial handbook, the book was created.

SP-Tell us about it and what we’ll find between the covers?

DS-Get Naked Fast will hold your hand through a non-judgemental approach to eating for health vibrance and beauty.
There are no “should’s or should not’s” but a realistic and accessible guide to cleaning out your pantry, grocery lists, easy substitutions for your favorite foods, a menu plan, recipes and all the reasons why you would want to eat “Naked nourishment”.
You will find all the answers to your questions getting healthy in a fast paced world.

SP-Did you learn anything about the writing process that helped you put together your second book?

DS-I learned that creating a system is key.   Making a simple book is almost harder then making a complex one.  As you read my books, you will uncover an amazing amount of information that took a lot of time to sift through.  Every factoid is broken down from pages of research into one sentence.  I found that we have too much conflicting information.   If I tell you that Citrus and kale will make your skin glow, do you care if it’s from the Vitamin C or Calcium, or are you happy to hear the end result?

SP-Writers, yes, me included, are known for snacking while at the keyboards. Any healthy snacks we can indulge in?

DS-I sip on smoothies while I write.  I love to have a straw near by so that I can indulge with my lips while still typing.  Do you like that image?  Make a smoothie with fresh juice, greens and fruit.  Add some green powders, coconut milk, or almond milk for a creamy version.  Whatever you can do to keep hydrated and nourished while working, as it will result in sharper cognitive function.

SP-How about drinks and foods for energy when we can’t get away from the computer?

DS-Hydration and Oxygen create energy.  H2O is key to keeping you aligned and energized.  That’s why I drink more then I eat, it keeps me light and energized.

SP-Food prices are rising, so maybe you can give us your suggestions best foods for nutrition while still staying on budget?

SP-What’s next for you?
DS-So much great stuff happening in my life right now.  I have a host of books floating around my computer that need to be formulated.  I have product lines that are being produced.  I am continuing my speaking and coaching along with representing raw food companies.  A network show is being discussed and I’m creating a membership page on my website http://www.dianastobo.com/ that will allow my members to get all exclusive information and recipes to support a “naked” lifestyle.
