Creating New Eating Habits

Did you know that our eating habits are established during our childhood? This explains why I’m still a picky eater. That being said, it’s never too late to change your eating habits. If you are struggling with your weight or even if you just want to be healthy, here are some tips to use to improve your eating habits.

  • Create a list of what you eat- Keeping a food diary will let you see what you are eating daily. More specifically, it will show you what you tend to eat during certain parts of the day and how much you eat.
  • Create a list of your unhealthy eating habits- Unhealthy eating habit may include eating when you aren’t hungry, skipping meals, eating to fast, etc.
  • Create of list of “cues”- Cues are when you are triggered to eat something, even though you aren’t hungry. A cue may be when you are watching T.V. or walking past a bowl of candy.
  • Make new goals- Take the lists you created and make new goals for yourself. Maybe your new goal will be to not eat certain foods, to not skip meals and to not eat while watching T.V. Use your list as a guide.

Be kind to yourself while trying to start new habits, habits don’t form overnight. Be consistent and honest with yourself. When you make a mistake ask yourself why you did it and then move on. Remember, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again.
