Wisdom words

“This is not a diet, this is a lifestyle and a shift for how you want to think about yourself and food.”


“The emotions are like a roaring fire, and you could have a roaring fire in the living room which should be an asset and not a liability if it’s well-contained with the fireplace.”


“If you have a craving and you indulge that craving, the craving’s gonna be stronger tomorrow. If you have a thought and you reward that thought with sugar, that thought will be stronger tomorrow also.”
