Re: My Overall Health in General

Jarelival,

Diving right into everything all at once is a tall order and not very realistic in my opinion. It's nice that you have the enthusiasm but, seriously, I don't think it can be done that way. So, naturally, that's why you feel "overwhelmed".

Just as important as what you add to your diet is what you eliminate. You can start by eliminating processed foods. That's a good place to start, in my opinion, and you can do it at your own pace. Processed foods are those foods that usually come packaged and have all kinds of additives like salt, sugar and saturated fats etc..

Then you gradually replace them with natural whole foods like fresh fruits, non-starchy vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
