A Message from Dr. Barnard
Here are my favorite nutrition tips: Take advantage of other motivators. New parents, for example, may decide to eat healthy foods not just for themselves, but for the sake of their children.
Use social support. Enlisting the help of friends and family makes changing habits much easier. Start with a good breakfast. Cutting hunger is the first step in cutting cravings.
Choose foods that steady your blood sugar. Beans, green vegetables, fruit, and whole grains help prevent blood sugar dips that can lead to cravings. For a few of my nutrition tips, visit my Kickstart page >
