I've also reduced my intake of pop, which can ALSO be found at the aforementioned fast food places. Slowly, I'm making a dietary change that will last a lifetime. That's how people should do it. Old habits die hard, but weaning off them gradually is the way to go. Then, you don't miss them. I'm Catholic, so I gave up pizza for Lent one year. Now, I only eat pizza once in a blue moon. I need to exercise more often. Maybe I'll do it now that the weather is getting better...
Nice! Yep, I found that changing one habit at a time was the easiest. Not just giving something up, but replacing it with something else. I gave up eating red meat for about 4 years and it was probably the best thing I could have ever done. Now, I only eat red meat a couple times a month. mostly it's chicken or vegetables. I get a craving for a good burger every now and again! I also gave up pop for several years, but I replaced it with iced tea...no sweetner added. Love it. I still have a soda every once in awhile, but it's rare.
