Re: What's the best diet?

I've found the best diet is the one you can follow. Making to many changes in a diet all at once is almost impossible for anyone. That being said what I have done is slowly added/enhanced my diet. I ate well to begin with my normal habits being that of a Mediterranean diet being Italian-American, but needed to tweak some of the amounts and snacks.
I started off adding more whole grain bread, not a big fan of the stuff. Waited till I was comfortable with that change and could keep it up to move on to the next step and cut out the chocolate. (Well at least limit it to dark chocolate and not as much. lol)

The idea here is to start with small steps and build yourself into a new healthy diet. I still need to work on eating more per day and to stop my vanilla coke-cola addiction , but that will come as well.

Lots of tomatoes and olive oil and less veg oil/corn oil. Also buy a cookbook (not Paula Deans unless you really want a heart that has full meals planned out. I found a cookbook makes it easier to get the servings of your carbs/proteins/fats/fruits/veggies with it. Plus it helps to keep it interesting cause I hate the same thing all the time. I get mine at a bargain book store. It's also a great way to be social.
