Switching to a healthy diet does not have to be all or nothing.
You don’t have to completely eliminate the foods you enjoy and you don’t have to change everything in a single day. Healthy eating is all about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood.
The cornerstone of a healthy diet should be to replace processed food with real food whenever possible. Eating foods that are as close as possible to the way nature made them can make a huge difference. A good approach is to set modest and realistic goals as this can help you achieve more in the long term without feeling deprived.
While some extreme diets may suggest otherwise, we all need a balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals in our diets to sustain health. You don’t need to eliminate any food groups from your diet, but rather select the healthiest options from each food group.
