Diets Overwhelming??

Do you find all the hype for different diets nowadays a bit overwhelming? I know I do. Just type "diets" into Google and about a million different things will come up. Vegan, gluten-free, low-carb, beer diet (no, seriously, that really was in the results from Google!), etc. So, what should the everyday, average person, wanting to lose weight or just eat healthier do? Here are my thoughts/suggestions:

1. Research your different options. If you want to try eating vegan (or any other kind of diet), then go for it! See how it makes you feel. Determine if it's something you could stick with.

2. Steer clear of fads. Stick to what's tried & true (more fruits & veggies, lean meats, whole grains) because they are just that: tried & true.

3. Don't "diet". Just make changes that will work for you; things that you know you can stick with. For example, skip the mayo on your sandwich or start drinking your coffee without sugar. After awhile you won't even like it with sugar! Use sliced strawberries in place of jelly on pb&j's. I know, I did it. All the little changes add up!

4. Check out the Super Tracker for more tools. Create a profile, keep track of the foods you eat and log your workouts. I think it's a great site!

What little choices do you make each day to be healthier? I'd love to hear some other ideas!
