The truth is defined as the real facts about something, the things that are true.
The Bible is the Word of God - the Truth of God's Word. It is everything we need for life and living. It is filled with His Precepts - God's Truth's about how I am to live my life according to His standards. And that includes the foods I consume in this body, the temple of the Holy Spirit.
The truth is - do I see myself as God sees me, as He created me to be or I am allowing myself to be defined by others? As Lysa states in Chapter 7 - I will not be defined by numbers on a scale. We have to fill our hearts and minds with God's words. God's truth is the foundation of my identity.
Proverbs 23:-25 tells us that overeating, overdrinking and oversleeping result in poverty both spiritually and materially. It is the one who seeks God early who finds Him (Prov 8:17). We are to do whatever it takes to get truth, instruction, knowledge, and wisdom. it takes work but if we pay the price and don't give up, we'll be a source of joy to our heavenly Father as well as to our earthly parents.
