    2. Wow, this is a long book.

    3. We don't need to read the intro. Chapter 1…vitamins...nutrients…yadayadayada. Just tell me what to do already! Where are the menus?

    4. Wow, I can't believe I read that book in 20 minutes. Yes, I probably missed 80 percent of it, but it's mainly filler, right?

    5. I'm making a list of all the new healthy foods I'm going to eat! Here I come, pure, natural, wholesome meals that will make me poop like a normal person.
