I'm on the same journey and the thing that seems to work the best (so far!) is really eliminating the white 'stuff' - pasta/bread/rice/potatoes/sugar/fructose.
I'm trying to get most of my fats from mono (avocado/olives/olive oil) or poly unsaturates
I'm getting most of my protein from fish, nuts (almonds/walnuts), seeds, eggs or cheese
I'm getting most of my deliberate carbs from broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, "light" whole wheat bread
I'm drinking green tea instead of coffee or black tea
I'm limiting fruits to 1-2 servings a day - raspberries, blackberries or strawberries
I'm also drinking 2 tsp of lemon or lime juice in a 16 oz glass of water with each meal and at bedtime.
I'm also making sure I get at leat 25mg of fiber each day and supplementally, I'm taking Omega 3 (fish oil) capsuls and a multi-vitamin each day.
This is my 'starting' point.. I'll be making more changes as time goes on!
