Day#1 Eat Food
"These days this is easier said than done, especially when seventeen thousand new products show up in the supermarket each year, all vying for you food dollar. But most of these items don't deserve to be called food-I call them edible foodlike substances. They're highly processed concoctions designed by food scientist, consisting mostly of ingredients derived from corn and soy that no normal person keeps in the pantry, and they contain chemical additives which the human body has not been long acquainted. Today much of the challenge of eating well comes down to choosing real food and avoiding these industrial novelties."
