“Optimal results are not achievable without optimal behavior.”
Douglas J. Lisle, Pleasure Trap, the: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health and Happiness

“Our desire for sleep, like our desire for food, obeys a law of satiation. The attempt to circumvent this law will cause impaired mental and physical performance.”
Douglas J. Lisle, Pleasure Trap, the: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health and Happiness

“If we then follow the evidence and the logic, we can assume that the solution is to subtract foods of excess from our daily fare. And, as we subtract meat, fish, fowl, eggs, dairy products, oil, salt, sugar, and refined carbohydrates from our diet, what remains are foods that promote health. Fresh fruits and vegetables, tubers, whole grains, legumes, and nuts and seeds fill the void after the subtraction has taken place. In response, the previously overburdened body begins to regain its health.”
Douglas J. Lisle, Pleasure Trap, the: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health and Happiness
