"Once I accept the fact that
I have to follow a healthy eating plan
for life, dieting will be easier."
Dr. Beck shared some guidelines for a "Doable Diet":
Your diet should be healthy.
Choose a diet that includes food you like and can easily prepare.
Choose a diet's that flexible.
Choose a diet that allows you to budget for indulgences.

PCRM's 21-Day Vegan Kickstart pcrm.org/kickstartHome/
