Rosie O'Donnell recently began eating better, because she has had some health issues and realized how destructive her eating was in the long run. She looks at every piece of food before she eats and thinks "Will this kill me?" or "Will this prolong my life?"

Anyway, it helps remind me eat healthfully and mindfully.

I don't smoke because it causes cancer and that will kill me. I don't drink because it causes liver problems and car accidents and those will kill me. I don't drive without my seatbelt because that might kill me. When I crave a cookie or a shake, I tell myself that I "can't eat that because it will kill me." True or not, that one little phrase gives me just enough pause to stop, think and make a more healthy decision.
