“That was like the first eye-opening moment for me about what we are eating in a way that affects our health in ways more than just weight loss.” (9:37)

“It's really that freedom, I don't have to freak out at this moment where I have started to get hungry because I am not going to get to that crazy hangry place.” (16:30)

“We really cut ourselves short when thinking and planning ahead about food. And I’m not saying to get obsessive about it, its just more being thoughtful about your future self” (28:38)

“I think people beat themselves up way too much, and I have seen this a lot in the keto community. Where people are like ‘well if I do this, will I not be keto?’ and I’m like, ‘are the keto police going to come get you?’” (43:18)
