Breaking Your Bad Eating Habits
Everyone has an unhealthy eating habit that they struggle with, but breaking habits is a whole different story. A recent study found that most people don’t realize their bad eating habits, and they tend to do them without realizing they are completing the act. “Once a task becomes second nature, the brain essentially shut down,” Brian Wansink, author of Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think.
If this is the case, learning how to break your bad eating habits may be a bigger challenge then most people think. But, there is still hope. As research shows the best way to break your bad eating habits is to change your environment. If you eat in the same place every single day, you may eat the same types of foods in that spot. If you move to a different spot, the new environment may make it easier to create a new and healthier habit.
Although willpower is important in maintain new eating habits; it is also important to change other things in your life to ensure success in your diet. Learn to change your environment, and you will be one step closer to a healthier lifestyle.
