When it comes to eating food, we seem to have both good and bad eating habits. Although many of our eating habits were established during our childhood, it doesn’t mean it’s too late to change them when we become adults.
Here are some ways to setup healthy eating habits:
• Don’t give up your favorite foods. Eat all your foods you enjoy but do it in smaller quantities.
• Always have a plan. Prepare meals in advance or look at restaurant menus online before dining out.
• Don’t eat boring food. Always add olive oil, garlic, or your favorite seasoning.
• Prep and store fruits/veggies. After your weekly store run, make sure to wash, chop, and store in containers. Then, put them in the fridge for later.
• Eat the rainbow. Eating a variety of fruits and veggies gives your body more nutrients. In addition, you will be more likely to reach your recommended 5 servings.
• Snack attack. Be prepared with healthy snacks at home, in the car, and at work.
Making sudden changes to your eating habits can lead to short term weight loss. Permanently improving your eating habits requires a thoughtful approach. Remember, it is important to make necessary adjustments to your eating habits to boost your energy, drop pounds and feel happier.
