I know I should make healthier food choices…how do I start?

Each day, I sit with patients and tell them they have diabetes, or high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.  Part of our discussion is about choosing different foods.  I have found a pretty basic link that will help. 

Now of course, everyone is different, so patients will have to choose foods based on their tastes and food allergies.  Each patient should work with their doctors to help them individually.  Still, this is a good start.
