“With so much high-carb, decadent fare around us all the time, it’s easy to assume that it’s our birthright to indulge in it. Instead, I remind myself that, just because the standard American diet revolves around bagels, sandwiches, sodas, and breakfast pastries, doesn’t mean we should eat it. After all, this refined sugar- and flour-rich food doesn’t nourish our bodies; instead, it offers our minds momentary pleasure.”—Dina Cheney who lost 25 pounds

“Feed your soul for lasting pleasure.”

“Often, I would overeat because my soul was hungry, but when the last crumb was gone, I felt even ‘hungrier’ than before. When I finally recognized this and started getting the nourishment my soul was craving, my stomach was no longer a bottomless pit that could never be filled. Now I listen to the needs of both my body and my soul so I can eat in a healthy way. I get the spiritual and physical nourishment needed to live joyfully, with kindness and ancient wisdom bringing lasting pleasure.”—Brachia Goetz who lost 20 pounds. Find out the 20 hidden reasons your diet isn’t working.
