Here’s something you’ve known ever since you gave up on the Atkins diet or swore to never have cabbage soup again — DIETS DO NOT WORK.
But you know you need to lose weight. You know your blood pressure keeps creeping up and you know your cholesterol and triglycerides need to be better.

Kathy says she’s a big believer of leaning and easing into change. She says when you lean into a new way of eating, it’s less overwhelming and it’s the only way that works. She describes how gradual changes — not depriving yourself — can help reshape your habits and tastes.
Growing up in Georgia, Kathy says she never would have believed that someday she’d be someone who doesn’t eat animal products. But she had a big wakeup call — losing her father to cancer. She explains why study after study proved to her how big of a role our diets play in our long-term health.
Find out how she made the slow transition from a carnivore to a vegetarian to a vegan, and her tips for gradually taking animal products off your dinner plate.
