approach to health is practical and scientific. She believes that, “Good health
literally depends on eating nutritious, healthy, delicious foods – yes, in
moderate portions and at regular intervals. We are the cumulative effect of what
we put into our bodies and burn through activity over time and not the product
of any one meal. It’s therefore about being empowered to make personal,
customized choices about what and how much to eat and not a matter of
deprivation or willpower.”
