We've all been there.
"Eat this, not that." "Eggs are bad." "Wait, eggs are good." "No, we were wrong; eggs are bad."
"Man isn't meant to eat meat. Or dairy. Or grains."
"Everything everywhere is toxic; be careful eating. And drinking. And breathing. It's all dangerous!"
"Eat exactly this many calories -- no more, no less."
"And be sure you exercise the right way..."
It's all so overwhelming!
There's so much health advice. Much of it conflicts, and it all seems to change. You don't know who to believe, how to decide what to believe, or...when all is said and done, how to do it all.
There's so much you need to change, such a long way to go, it all seem like too much, and you start to feel panicky -- in complete, mental overload.
You don't even know where to start.
Start with Baby Steps.
Even the longest journey is taken one step at a time, and the single step in front of you is far less overwhelming than the finish line that seems so far away.
Baby Steps to Better Nutrition and a Healthier Lifestyle is designed to help you identify concrete steps you can take in your own home, given your own priorities, resources, and limitations...one baby step at a time.
This is about progress, not perfection. Encouragement, not one-upmanship.
