“What you eat occasionally has little impact on your health or body composition. What you eat every day is what matters the most. Take it seriously.
“By eating as many of your daily calories as possible from natural, nutrient-dense food, you’re doing more than losing weight: You’re building health. You’re also building self-discipline and gaining momentum. Every time you eat a healthy meal, you get the same good feeling you get after a great workout; it’s like an endorphin rush. You pat yourself on the back and say, ‘Job well done.’ You build the confidence of a person who has a goal and is going after it, who has a plan and follows it.”
