However, such radical changes are neither healthy nor a good idea, and won’t be successful in the long run. Permanently improving your eating habits requires a thoughtful approach in which you Reflect, Replace, and Reinforce.
We should take vegetables, small fish and fruits more than other things. We should eat meat within a limit because it is full of fat. You don’t need to make huge changes to eat healthier.

Over time, small changes can make a big difference in your health. Moreover, we should stress taking a balanced diet.
