Where to Start…
More protein & Healthy fats
You might think that fat makes you fat. There is only a little bit of truth to this. You see, fat is nine calories per gram as compared to carbs and protein at five calories and alcohol at seven.
Even though fat is more energy dense, healthy fats make you feel full faster. We get these fats from whole animal products, fatty “fruits” or nuts, and dairy. Below is where to find these products and what to get.

At this stage it’s really all about adding more healthy options to your diet instead of just trying to restrict the unhealthy options. When you start focusing on putting better things in to your body then you will automatically be replacing the poor foods without even thinking about. Don’t focus on changing the old, focus on building the new and the old will fade automatically.
