Words of Advice on Changing your Diet

Start Slow

Make small steps, like adding a salad (full of different-colored vegetables) to your diet once a day or switching from butter to olive oil when cooking.

As your small changes become a habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet and make changes to your eating habits over the long-term. Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn't realistic, nor smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan.

Every Change You Make to Improve Your Diet Matters

You don't have to be perfect and you don't have to completely eliminate foods you enjoy to have a healthy diet. The long-term goal is to feel good, have more energy, and reduce the risk of cancer and disease. Don't let your missteps derail you — every healthy food choice you make counts!
