Getting The Horse To Drink

How do we get Americans to eat a Mediterranean style diet?

Check out these new data showing (again) that this approach is associated with:

1. Reduction in all mortality
2. Lower cancer
3. Lower heart disease

What do we have to do?
We know this approach works, because we can see it with our own eyes. There's great data showing that it's an optimal approach, but the hiccup is always getting the horse to drink.

My biggest challenge is not just education, but teaching peeps in a way that they can act on, and have success with. Any suggestions you have would be terrific.
