I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones. This is the time of the year that we take on new resolutions and want to stick to them. It is sometimes hard to do it but we need to be self-motivated first then we can have our friends or a professional to help us to achieve our goals.
First of all, we need to make a decision it is the first step, without making a decision nothing will happen. Also, what do I want to attain? For instance this year I decide to eat healthier food so that I will feel better. I noticed for myself that when I am stressed I eat more not because I am hungry because I eat my emotions. Each time I eat I ask myself If I am hungry or because I feel nervous. It is a crucial step otherwise you eat without stopping or those are comfort food because they have an emotional attachment.
Things that we can do to improve our eating habit.
1 – Ask ourselves If we are hungry before eating. It is very important before putting anything into your mouth.
2 – Choose the food you are going to eat, make sure they are healthy choices, not junk food.
3 – If you decide to follow a program to reach your healthy weight, study the company that you want to work with. We all know that there are several companies up there and we want to be on the safe side using good products.
4 – We want to eat 3 meals a day and in between to have 2 snacks to balance it out and help to keep your blood stable all day long.
5 – Try to avoid high glycemic index food and eat more foods full of fiber and protein like low-fat protein such as chicken breast, fish. For convenience, I like to use smoothies.
6 – A good night sleep helps us keep control on our satiety and hunger signal otherwise it gets confuse when we have to stop eating.
Moreover, we need to include in our lifestyle, exercises, strength training, fortify our cardiovascular, do various sports that you enjoy doing, yoga, tai chi and meditation.
