1. Start Slow

Just because you’ve decided to start eating healthy doesn’t mean you need to try every diet out there or cut out multiple food groups. In fact that is one of the worst things you could do. Start slow. First cut out refined sugar, especially from major sources like junk food, fast food, soda and sugary snacks of all kinds. Along with cutting out sugar, be sure to exclude refined grains, which are pretty much void of nutritional value. They cause your blood sugar to spike just like sugar does, which makes you crave unhealthy foods all over again. Just cutting out refined sugars and refined grains of all kinds will make a tremendous difference in your progress and is less intimidating than removing too many carbs, fats, etc.
