Following a New Diet IS Hard at First
Following a strict diet IS hard at first because you are not used to it. Once you get used to shopping and cooking in a new way it is really easy. Also, once everyone realizes how much better they feel, they are willing to stay on the diet because they don’t want to feel bad again. You will not find my kids cheating (I am fairly certain). In fact, today at co-op in my kindergartener's science class they learned about the earth’s crust, mantel, and core using a frosting covered ding-dong with an M&M inside. The other kids ate them up after the lesson and my daughter explained to the teacher that when we were done with our new diet in a few years that she would be able to eat one, too. She was thrilled to have a granny smith apple for her snack today!
