Good for you, Frytown Farmer for sticking with it and making changes. Change is not easy, for sure. If you're interested in "change theory" Prochaska has some interesting reading about how and why people make changes. In short, you need to be ready and at a point where you "want" to make a change. There are many reasons for being motivated to change but long-term health is a good one. John Burns could not be a better advocate for diet and exercise impacting long-term health as it relates to diabetes and insulin resistance. Stick with your plan and have it become your new normal (hate to use those words in the light of the pandemic) and then you soon adjust and prefer the new thing. In my career as a dietitian counseling people, the ones that are successful in making changes are the ones that want to.
