You can have it all.....
All of us want to perform at our best and feel fabulous. The problem is that eating well and taking care of our bodies feels like work. In an already stressed-out and busy lifestyle, it can be overwhelming to try adding more to our schedule.
Healthy Hedonism is a lifestyle that includes tapping into your innate body wisdom, enjoying your health practices, and taking inspired action. This allows you to accomplish more but ALSO prioritize your health and happiness.
Jill Cruz, MS, CNS is an advocate for working WITH your nature for better health and performance. She calls herself “The Healthy Hedonist”, which means taking inspired action out of self-love, tapping into body wisdom, and taking pleasure in the health-building process. Jill helps people understand that the current health and weight loss standards are causing a lot of unnecessary suffering. Her "take-action" talks inspire and educate in a compassionate and relatable way.
Jill brings science-backed strategies and a very extensive toolbox to the table. But she also brings compassion. Because she knows what it's like! Jill suffered from a 15-year-long nighttime disordered eating habit, but she found a way to enjoy her life AND be at her best and she loves showing others that they can too!
Jill has a Master of Science in Human Nutrition, is a Board-Certified Nutrition Specialist, and is an expert in healthy, sustainable, and pleasurable weight loss. She emphasizes that the process of health-building is about the mind, body, and spirit using evidence-based nutrition science, biochemistry, psychology, behavioral science, and neuroscience.

Supercharge Your Success with Healthy Hedonism
Let's face it. We all want to achieve fabulous success but not at the expense of our health and happiness. How do we accomplish more creative, compelling work in less time while being relaxed, confident, and feeling in control of our days?
The secret to "having it all" is to get that balance between "striving and thriving". We can work hard but we also need to take care of our bodies and minds. This doesn't just happen. We have to orchestrate success AND happiness.
In this interactive talk, Jill Cruz, MS, CNS, will introduce the concepts of "Healthy Hedonism". By tapping into your innate body wisdom, enjoying your health practices, and at the same time taking inspired action from a place of self-love, you can be successful AND happy.
Empowered Health for Women
Do you suffer from sneaky self-sabotage? Even the most accomplished women walk around with subtle yet powerful internal dialogues that tell us we are not enough and we will never be enough. Especially when it comes to our bodies and our health we have all internalized unrealistic expectations that we need to look good, feel good, and be our best in order to be considered healthy, vibrant, and successful. And if we don’t, it is all our fault.
In reality, truly holistic health is a personalized journey where you set the rules, you are the expert, you define success, and you wield the power.
In this talk, Jill Cruz, MS, CNS will explore the four pillars of "Empowered Health": Love, Wisdom, Pleasure, and Power and will teach you practices to develop each one. These pillars represent the foundation of Empowered Health and they are practices that help you step away from the male-dominated paradigm that defines women's health, step into your inherent power, and take pleasure in your journey toward higher health.
Presence Over Perfection: Wellness Without the Guilt
“I should wake up and want to work out.” “Why can’t I eat better? What is wrong with me?” “I’ve been trying to lose the same weight for sooooo long.” What do all of these real-life quotes have in common? They all involve self-blame and criticism. This is how we are taught to think. If we can’t reach our health goals that just means we are weak and lazy.
As a Board-Certified Nutritionist who specializes in healthy, sustainable weight loss and who has overcome her own 15-year long nighttime eating addiction, Jill Cruz has learned that this type of thinking is exhausting, emotionally damaging, and usually leads to even worse health.
In this talk, Jill will show you that the path to a successful, sustainable, and pleasurable healthy lifestyle is paved with understanding your own nature and accepting yourself for who you are. You will learn how to supercharge your habits with the most powerful motivator of all: self-love.
Jill was AMAZING! She is a natural teacher and had so much great information to share. Her passion and enthusiasm really came through!
