Honestly I don’t think I could have done it if I lived with my parents still, but since moving out I do my own grocery shopping. I’ve made healthy replacements for all of the junk food choices that I like, like instead of chocolate I choose dark chocolate or organic peanut butter, and instead of chips I eat nuts and fruits. I go for leaner cheeses like Parmesan and if I’m craving milk I’ll drink almond milk. If you like grapefruit that’s really good for increasing your metabolism, as is vanilla ice cream in small amounts. For meats I’ve excluded red meat from my diet completely and chosen leaner meats like chicken breast and turkey burgers and usually some sort of veggie on the side. I’ve stopped eating bread completely and have replaced a lot of meals with fruit smoothies. If I need a salty snack I typically munch on cashews and peanuts throughout the day.
Getting started with a healthier diet for me was really all in the grocery shopping and having no unhealthy food in the house was a huge help for the start, at least. Once I started eating healthier all of my cravings pretty much stopped and I’m not dying to have a piece of cake or a brownie anymore haha
