You've started: I think asking for support and help is the beginning and possibly the end. Good for you, keep at it. Have fun exploring all the healthy ways to eat. We are creatures of habit and it easier if we are around people who are eating healthy. Some people also benefit from approaching it as if they were "addicted" to their patterns. Just keep at it.

Aversion hypnosis: Healthy eating is easier if you realize that you are bombarded by advertisements that make burgers, fries, and pizza seem good for you. There is a nice youtube video under "aversion hypnosis" that can keep you away from junk food. Then focus on veggies fruit grains and proteins.

Choose fresh foods: Eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Also consider visiting the grocery or fruit stands and ask if there is discount on foods that are about to be discarded. I know that the produce store i visit has a "clearance" shelf that is very reduced in price. Read labels and avoid foods that have high fructose corn syrup and lots of chemical ingredients. Make big batches of food and freeze for later..

Learn to cook: Find healthier recipes- and learn your ingredients- you'd be surprised - most cooks don't eat the meal they create for a group because they have been around the food all day- so they make something differerent- allow yourself to have one day to splurge with ' junk food'...As a reward - as your taste changes- youll find the reward days lessen.
