It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet.

You know, the heart knows how to beat, and the lungs know how to breathe, and the
kidneys know how to process waste. We were born with similar perfection regarding food
appetites and what has happened for the person who is stuck at a compulsion or an addiction
regarding this issue is that that particular brain circuitry has been thrown out of whack. And
this book is a book about the spiritual healing of that non alignment. So that, once again, we
can in an other area of life express the perfection which is natural to us.
Marianne Williamson, A Course in Weight Loss

No man can be wise on an empty stomach.
George Eliot

I asked the sales assistant in the clothing store if she had anything to make me look thinner,

If you're overweight by 80 pounds, you're gonna hate my guts for this or I'm gonna change
your life, one of the two... if you're overweight by 80 pounds, at the bottom of all that is not
just a disease that might be responsible for your overweight, but the truth underneath the
disease is this: You're freakin' lazy! Go walk, go run, go work out, get the weight off! Your life
depends on it. America, quit being lazy! Quit being a fatso! Quit being a drug addict! Quit
doing the things that aren't good for you and start doing the things that are.
Grant Cardone

the trip.

The more effort it takes us to obtain unhealthy food, the less we eat of it, and vice versa.
This is why nutritionalists recommend that we prepare healthy snacks in advance so that we
can simply pull them out of the refigerator, and why they recommend that when we do eat
junk foods, we take out a small portion, then put the rest of the bag away, well out of our
reach.
Shawn Achor

We stopped eating meat many years ago. During the course of a Sunday lunch we happened
to look out of the kitchen window at our young lambs playing happily in the fields. Glancing
down at our plates, we suddenly realised we were eating the leg of an animal who had until
recently been playing in a field herself. We looked at each other and said, "Wait a minute, we
love these sheep. They're such gentle creatures. So why are we eating them?" It was the
last time we ever did.
Paul McCartney
