Have you ever thought about how a wild animal chooses food? How do they pick food that has the exact vitamin or micronutrient that the body needs?

Every wretched food craving that has left you over your ideal weight is to your benefit. Those cravings have kept you alive. They only show that your system is strong; your will to survive is immense. Every extra ounce that you carry signifies your fierce system overtaking you with the will to survive. Your brain taking over your body to get the nutrients it needs is like a horse breaking through barbed wire. Your system is fierce!

You are a human being. You are a miraculous symphony of cells, organs, tissues, and systems that have one sole objective: your personal success. They are designed to communicate with you. Your mind and body are a team. Get your claws out. It’s time to fight.
