I TRY to follow NT, but with 5 kids and a hectic schedule, I find it very difficult to really stick to it! We have made some great changes (like switching to raw milk!), but still do things like eat out and buy Girl Scout cookies! I try to buy only organic and we eat a lot of yogurt, grass fed beef and free range chicken. I think you have to try to incorporate what you can into your life. It comes bit by bit as you gain knowledge. (cook on cast iron, use honey and maple syrup).
As far as 'noticing' a difference, not really. We were already healthier than most people (we didn't drink soda or eat all that nasty white flour baked goods/crackers). The real difference I noticed is when we started raw milk. My kids just DON'T get sick like they used to. It is probably a combination of everything. If they do catch something, it is VERY mild.
Try not to get overwhelmed! You are already WAY ahead of the game. Take it bit by bit. I learn SO MUCH reading these threads! I don't know where I'd be without them!!
