If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit. Charles Stanley
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." - Albert Schweitzer
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia
In our countries, "more is more" culture has had a tremendously negative impact on our health. "All you can eat" is not "all you SHOULD eat"! Unfortunately, ridiculous portions have now become the norm, and decent portions are considered puny or a " total rip-off,"Normal size plates have been replaced with buffet plates — and there’s a true correlation there with a healthy-size waist being replaced by a buffet-size waist! The key to fighting this is simple — eat less. Reconsider living by “more is more,” and return to the original “less is more The key is to keep it small and light: We’ve all been raised on huge portions and eat everything that is on your plate syndrome. Therefore, we’ll have to pay close attention every time we sit down to eat until we can automatically train ourselves to know what a healthy serving size looks like especially when it comes to carbs; starchy carbs in particular. Then, once you get the concept of reasonable serving sizes under your belt, we’ll find that what’s under our belt is that Sexy body!

The 90% Rule states that a diverse diet that is packaged by nature alone will be the most nutrient rich. Deviation from this rule in the has lead to an addiction to highly processed, preserved, and nutrient-poor foods.
