Creating an effective balance by eating fruits & vegetables

This journal entry stemmed from a conversation about making effective dietary changes without placing too many limits. For a lot of people, the problems arise when their are disruptions in the normal day. Sometimes, it just takes an hour or two to sit down, identify potential inconsistencies and work around them.

This shows commitment, dedication, and the ability to take the knowledge and (hopefully) begin to make a direct and personal application of that knowledge. The most successful individuals are those who begin to take this experience to the next level. Only we know what’s happening in our bodies – how we feel, how we’re responding to certain foods, etc. Only we can draw these connections.
