this gift: properly received is magic!
"I refer to this way of eating as a "diet" throughout the book, but I do so reluctantly. The word "diet" implies "sacrifice." It conjures up something rather unpleasant you do for a specified period of time to achive a specific goal, and then you stop.
This way of eating isn't like that at all. it's not unpleasant, it's wonderful! It's not "sacrificial" - it's highly satisfying! This is not a "diet," it's a gift! A magical, wondrous, empowering, self-honoring, healing gift...the most valuable gift you'll ever receive, if you choose to accept it. If you do, chances are, you'll never want to stop."
