Food is something that can have an influence on our overall health whether we are aware of it or not. One of the keys to making a long term change in diet is to do it gradually. These steps will help making an important dietary change that will benefit your health.
Consider keeping a food journal for 7 days and write down all the foods you eat. It is often surprising to see the lack of variety in our diet or the vast quantities of certain foods that we are consuming on a daily basis.
Based on results of the food journal select one food that you can eat less frequently. Make a commitment to yourself to eat that one food 25% less, i.e., if you are eating bread 4 times a day cut it down to 3 times day. The following week continue to make a 25% change. Being diligent about this can have a profound impact on your health and well-being.
A licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) can assist you in making healthy food choices, provide suggestions on food substitutions and support you in a variety of ways through this process.
