We are creatures of habit after all…but have you ever wondered *why* it is so hard to change our diet?

If you think of it this way, when you discover a new cereal or frozen pizza you liked at the grocery store, you’d change brands at the drop of a hat.  And what about a new entrée or special at a restaurant… You’d try it wouldn’t you?  If you can do that you can change your diet – it’s just that simple!

  • Meat or cheese – NOT both on your sandwiches and salads
  • Insist on double veggies at restaurants
