What Should You Eat? – Strength Magazine – September, 1928

Every time we move a muscle even the slightest fraction of an inch, every time we think even the most trivial thought, every time we take a breath we use up a certain amount of energy and we destroy a certain amount of tissue, even though it may be only a microscopic fragment of a cell. This process is going on clay and night, every moment of our lives. The old adage that “we begin to die the moment we are born” is infinitely more true than are most adages. There is only one means by which this loss of cell substance and this dissipation of energy can be replaced, and this is by converting food into cells and into the energy that gives them their power of activity.
