Yes.

teal lime, are there other ways to say this?

Probably, but four should be enough for you; it is certainly enough for me.

Thank you for your kind help, understanding, and patience.

What about "From today onwards"?

Thanks again.

Here are some picky points.

You say you will change your diet habits. To me that means you will do it once in the future. When you add "from today (on)" it suggests to me that you will change those habits again and again. Maybe you'll change them every day. I don't think that makes sense. A verb that means "make a change" is not a verb that expresses something that can happen "from today (on)".

How about these?

I'm going to eat differently from now on.
I'm going to be on a (different) diet from now on.

If you want "change" in your sentence, thinking of change as a gradual process that starts "today", try this:

I'm going change the way I eat, starting today.

To my ear, going to suggests starting the process more than will does.

What about "Starting from today, I'm going to change my diet (habits)"?

Should I delete "habits" above?

By the way, is it "starting today" or "starting from today"?

Thank you.

Yes, I would delete "habits".

"starting today" sounds better to me. It's used much more often than "starting from today".
