I think it depends on you.. Some people do better with gradual changes so they don't feel deprived I found cold turkey was better when I ha junk in the house I ate it!

What also helped me was focusing on making it a lifestyle change NOT a diet so it didn't feel so constricting :)

Everyday I try to make the "best choice" whether it's from the fridge and pantry or the restaurant.

I think it depends on the person. I'd been making small changes for awhile (and not losing weight) when I hit my rock bottom, then I went cold turkey. It was actually better for me. I didn't change everything, but I did "perfect" my food. My cravings for sweets and other things went away within a few days.

I agree with the ladies, it depends on the person, you could experiment with yourself. Start out slow and if its not working cut it completely.  For me, I did better with just quitting cold turkey, or i see myself falling back to bad habits. Hope that helps! =)
