-- -- -- -- -- Before the dinner hour that Fox News Channel I had no idea and now the author of the quick and clean that he I know I cannot be any different talk about so many other things yeah.
Each other -- but now there's -- most of the -- here is that you know people try to going -- we say -- gonna go activism -- -- as we never.
That joint because it seems like this -- out exactly exactly we always make it as this big huge daunting challenge we put these crazy pressures on ourselves and we set up a diet.
That is impossible to stick to so you know if we could just appreciate food and appreciate food and its natural form that's -- clean eating is all about okay ditched the sauces and all the crazy stuff we put on food.
Just eat things.

You need it and if you eat that good fat than you're not gonna -- the bad I have to avoid heavily processed foods like yes absolutely all of the things that you get you know in snack tiles.
You know stuff that's like dry -- I mean even you know dried apples that's kind of processed why not just your regular apple -- -- much better for and one of the things to do you cannot you can obsess about calories calories and fat -- got to the -- -- -- do you not assessment is exactly up to listen to yourself yet to make sure that you're full you never want to start yourself.
Because that's just nothing but sabotage but obsessing about caller's is so ridiculous I think I mean some people.
Need to live that way they need to have a system of accounting.
But I really think if you can just relax and enjoy the good for that you're reading.
You're gonna be falling not have to worry about honestly she's not just I have not just saying it's good she's my friend really you have to read this book because it's testing that are very obvious that's how things are not obvious yes and kind of -- it's kind of just a roadmap and the outlook.

But conscious of yourself you need to think about and this is an example of one of your -- this is a -- -- you know with the lettuce -- sort of have the the recipe on our web site.
