Age to care about your health, health care

I've never been a health nut, actually kind of the opposite, never really thought much about eating "right" or whatever, just always had what was good. But at this point in time I'm realizing I don't have the best health care coverage and should probably start thinking about making moves toward a healthy lifestyle.

I guess my question is, Has anyone ever gone through this type of change? I know a lot of people who are already living pretty healthy but I'm just having such trouble getting started. Anyone have advice on ways to change? Maybe ways you slowly learned to eat better, exercise more etc. I can cook, but that doesn't mean I WANT to eat the foods I should be.

Key to any healthy diet is moderation. But what is moderation? In essence, it means eating only as much food as your body needs. You should feel satisfied at the end of a meal, but not stuffed. Moderation is also about balance. Despite what fad diets would have you believe, we all need a balance of protein, fat, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals to sustain a healthy body.

For many of us, moderation also means eating less than we do now. But it doesn't mean eliminating the foods you love. Eating bacon for breakfast once a week, for example, could be considered moderation if you follow it with a healthy lunch and dinner—but not if you follow it with a box of donuts and a sausage pizza. If you eat 100 calories of chocolate one afternoon, balance it out by deducting 100 calories from your evening meal. If you're still hungry, fill up with extra vegetables.
