In this video, nutrition and fitness expert Janet Bond Brill, PhD, RDN, FAND, LDN, discusses the most effective ways to make the switch to a healthier diet. It is important to take a positive approach, focusing on what healthy items you want to add to your diet rather than what you want to cut out. She suggests that people should not completely deprive themselves of their favorite foods but should instead focus on moderation whenever eating and adding healthy choices to regular meals. Finally, Dr. Bond Brill urges people to think of their daily calorie intake as a bank account from which they can spend at each meal.
