Yes...over the past few years my diet has changed drastically.
When I first started losing the weight from my second child-I started out simply counting calories and staying within a certain range...but over the past couple years, I have made more and more changes for better health.
I now limit my coffee to 1 cup a day, have upped my water intake, only drink diet soda when I occasionally go out to dinner (I don't keep it at home any longer for daily consumption), have switched to eating only 100% whole wheat breads, pastas, and cereals-no white, brown rice instead of white, a minimum of 5 servings of fruits and/or veggies a day...and I have become a "flexitarian". (Meaning I choose to eat meatless a couple days a week-although I utilize dairy, soy, nuts, and eggs to meet my protein requirements on those days.)
I find that for most people-the longer they exercise and practice "mindful eating" the healthier their food choices and the more intense their exercise regime becomes over time. I could not have jumped from my old lifestyle into what I am doing now...it had to play out and become small manageable changes over time for me.
