    What would it take for you to follow a healthy diet?

    What would it take for you to follow a healthy diet free of refined sugar and flour, and free of preservatives and chemicals?

    A complete, honest and open-minded kitchen makeover where you literally remove any and all processed foods from pantry refrigerator and any other storage areas in your home.

    It also takes planning, organizing and follow up in order to commit to it.

    I was able to slowly but surely remove a majority of processed foods by educating myself regularly and removing items that would sabotage my ability to refrain from following a healthy diet.

    It also takes breaking bad habits, little by little and staying focused on that goal.

    This is a great question.

    Thank you.

    I'm not sure? I have been food conscious since the sixties and a vegetarian through most of them. There again? There are chemicals and chemicals, Salts and sodium. Some are good preserving methods. I'm sure, that self-education is the biggest guide.

    My cooking has nearly always been one of "from scratch". I make my own bread, by hand. I have machines with dough hooks. I just prefer the hand method. for e.g. Pasta, too but I use a machine to roll. Beside, what is "healthy"? My own approach is a yin/yang one. About the only processed foods I use are from  freezing, pickling and canning or drying; my garden produce. Although oats are rolled and flours milled, so there is always a "process".

    One has to be fortunate to have ground to grow in and an interest; in understanding, "you are what you eat" philosophy.

    Once food is harvested, it starts to rot and die. We each have to compromise with the decisions, of what to put into ourselves. The care we have with our bodies.

    zero access to any bad food. When I don't have any snacks or pop in my apt I have no problems going without, but as soon as I have it available I cant turn it down.

    After I do a HCG diet for a few weeks, I lose the desire for sugar and processed foods.

    I am embarrassed to say it would probably take handcuffs and a 24/7 guard for me to be able to do that. :-(

    Getting a nasty health condition when I knew my diet was the cause or having to take many pills to prevent symptoms from an unhealthy diet..A healthy diet seems the least costly and in the long run so much better.

    I am trying very hard now and it is not easy with the kids around and all the cooking and baking I do. I just need to go to BJ's get a full load of healthy ingredients, nuts and sweeteners and use them daily!
    It is always about what you have in your house and what you carry with you. If it is handy, you will do it easier!
    Then I do exercise and plan on increasing the time and intensity.
