Then when he did call, Mordechai said that he did not think Jeff was ready since he skipped the call.Jeff did not want to restrict himself fully from the foods that he loved and wanted to try. So, he planned to be able to have one bit of anything at the table.He has lost over 80lbs.He realized that you could eat plenty of food that is good for you and never feel like you are hungry. He also realized that sometimes the simplest and healthiest cooking tastes the best.You can look at any menu and find the thing that works for you. When you are eating healthy vegetables and protein, your digestive system functions properly and you feel better.Jeff grew up in a typical 90’s home where everything was low-fat or light versions of food.His parents had him go to Weight Watchers at 13 and it was uncomfortable to be there.Jeff rebelled by eating food that he was not supposed to eat.The goal is not perfection.
