Healthy eating: Take it one meal at a time

If you're planning to improve your eating habits, good for you! But don't feel pressured to change your diet overnight. Instead, take it slow. Add a fruit or vegetable to your lunch. Choose whole-wheat pasta or brown rice for dinner. Gradually increasing the amount of fruits, vegetables and whole grains you eat will help prevent bloating and diarrhea. Taking it slow will also help you maintain your healthier habits in the long run.
