avoid making your goal vague , let numbers help you measure your goal such as, i am going to cut 500 cal/daily from my diet so your total caloric reduction will be 3500cal/week or instead of eating eating 1 and half chicken , 4 fishes ,2 beef steaks and 20 servings of vegetables and fruits every week i will have only one chicken , 2 fish , 1 beef steak , 3 servings of plant based proteins like beans and legumes and 35 servings of fruits and vegetables or drinking 5-8 of the 600mL of water bottles so your weekly target will be drinking around 5 liter or 20 liter monthly
goals – it’s better to decide starting a steady balanced diet program that doesn’t forbid certain food groups or severe caloric restriction below 1200 cal/day or instead of cutting carbs at all or take the low carb bath ,start consuming carbs only in grains and fibers form( complex carbohydrates). This will help you to adhere and commit to the new choices and prepare you for the next step towards healthy eating
