First you need to realize which is your favorite food that you like but not the healthiest then you want to cut it in half for the first week so for example if you’re eating 2 slices of pizza two times a week then have only one slice of pizza at each of those 2 meals. Fill the gap with something like a salad or piece of fruit. The following week, cut your pizza intake in half again by having a single slice just once that week. Then repeat the process with the next worst food you’re eating. After a few weeks you will notice that you have cleaned up your diet accordingly.
