Good for you!
One thing to keep in mind is this is a lifestyle change, not a 'diet' as most people think of that word. It does change the way you eat, but also your habits related to food and your taste - for instance, my family (self, hubby and 14 yr old son) just don't like the standard name brand PB anymore - they taste/feel like peanut flavored sugared shortening (which is basically what most of them are). We don't like the taste, the texture, or how we feel if we somehow end up with some (like at a social event). Plain, unsalted, peanut butter where the only thing on the label is "peanuts" (not even "peanut oil" added) is our preference. Hubby was amazed at how different his taste buds are after growing up on one of the well-known name brands and now he just won't eat it because it doesn't taste good.
