7 Key Points:

1. The average 1st world consumer is simply spoiled by their year-round access to a wide-variety of foods. 2. Reading and asking questions is the key to educational development. 3. Be prepared to sacrifice to see mental goals become physical realities. 4. A high-quality diet will never be as valued as a high-variety diet. 5. To produce quality meat, you must have quality animals, quality feeds and a low-stress environment for the livestock. 6. Fats are far more important to health and wellness that we generally think. 7. Create a main goal and then outline the necessary sub-goals required for accomplishment.
