Day 144 Words of wisdom from a winner of the food wars

My friend Bob Wilson is a nutritionist who weighed a million pounds in high school, got to a healthy weight and has kept it off for decades. His website has many interesting pieces of information, including this page on understanding brain chemistry, cravings, and body weight.

Bob's advice is as much gently emotional as scientific. I love this quote from him:

"If you are hungry, then eat something. It is not wrong to be hungry! Eat something that won’t make you ultimately unhappy with yourself. When you choose whole, healthful foods, you are caring for yourself. Respect and honor yourself. Choose foods that will properly nourish and maintain your body."
 

--Bob Wilson, nutritionist
