Examples of all-or-none in a Sentence

  1. Gary Foster:

    Broadly, reality not meeting expectations is what trips people up, the most common example is when people have unrealistic notions of what the weight loss journey will be -- that they'll lose the same amount( of weight) every single week, or eat perfectly every single day. Life gets in the way. Teaching people a different mindset around that and being aware of your thinking style is key. ' All or none' is not good for weight, relationships or work performance.
