Thinks it’s easier to change your eating environment than to change your mind, and notes that we make 200+ eating decisions in a typical day.

“The best diet is the one you don’t know you’re on.”

Believes what we eat matters less than how much we eat.

Thinks there’s a lot more going on in the cereal box aisle than you may realize.

“Eating right is a long-term goal. Eating better is something we can start today.”
