Welcome to the beginning of our new way of eating. You can make changes gradually and still see the improvement these changes bring, or, you can jump in with both feet....whatever works for you! Remember, this is a lifestyle change, not a "diet" with a start date and end date. Once you make the changes, feel and see the difference in yourself, there will be no turning back.
