Make the decision, then do something

Make the decision, then do something no matter how small toward accomplishing what you want.

Most of us are creatures of habit. We buy the same foods from the same grocery store, prepare the same recipes over and over, and live within our own familiar routines. But if you’re serious about eating healthier and losing weight, you need to shake it up, change those bad eating habits, and start thinking differently about your diet and lifestyle!

The problem is that we get so comfortable in our ways that it’s hard to give up those old habits.

We’re here to help! Listed below is a short list to foods to eat and foods to avoid.

Eating a healthier diet may be intimidating at first. But once you see for yourself how good it makes you feel—and how good healthy food can taste—you have a better chance of succeeding. Over time, your preferences will change and cravings for bad-for-you foods will fade away!
