You are what you eat!
If you are aiming to eat a more nourishing diet, don’t try to make a complete switch all at once. Attempting to achieve perfection is probably a recipe for failure.
Dr. Sukol recommends paying attention to how much stripped carbohydrates you eat for a week or two, and then deciding to lower it by a certain amount — perhaps 30%. And then try it. She also suggests replacing it with something else that you like.
And she doesn’t focus on calories and portion sizes. “Your brain can tell the difference between real food and entertainment,” she says. If you feed yourself food that nourishes you, you won’t feel as hungry. She encourages people to trust how they feel. “Your body is telling you something,” she says. “Listen.”

You might think a star chef like Giada De Laurentiis has always known how to eat right. Whether she’s sprinkling parsley on top of a pasta dish or grilling crusty bread for crostini, she's always brimming with healthy energy.
But it turns out, behind the scenes in what looks like a glamorous career, there was a lot of unhealthy eating.
In her new book, "Eat Better, Feel Better: My Recipes for Wellness and Healing, Inside and Out", De Laurentiis shares how she would reach for special treats and comfort food all the time. How she was happy to take brownie bite after brownie bite in front of the camera as her crew tried to get the perfect shot. How after a long day she’d order delivery or eat out, and she’d choose cheesy pastas, rich desserts, or both.
