When starting to make changes, I suggest you take small steps, don’t try and change everything all at once, especially if you’ve tried before unsuccessfully.
For most people, the best approach is to change a couple of things in your diet at a time and successfully establish those habits before you tackle more.
Call to Action:
- For breakfast, if you eat sugar-coated cereal then make the switch to a healthier option like whole wheat toast or a low sugar or sugar-free variety (like oatmeal, muesli, granola, or other high fiber low sugar cereal) and add chopped fresh fruit.
- Keep the other meals you eat the same until you’re used to your new breakfast habit.
- Then slowly switch your mid-afternoon snack to a piece of fresh fruit or several tablespoons of dried fruit, nuts and/or seeds (like raisins, cranberries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, or walnuts).
- You can also improve your diet easily by adding extra helpings of veggies at every meal. (The more of these the better! 😆 )
- Keep a good selection of fresh fruit on hand for snacking and substituting for desserts.
- Buy less and less of the unhealthy, snack and junk food stuff when you shop.
To your wellness,
