How To Break Bad Eating Habits

Eating healthily isn’t as difficult as it may seem, even though it may feel like a challenge at first. First things first: Acknowledging your bad habits.

Here are some bad habits that are common: mindless eating, nighttime snacking and skipping breakfast.

Do you ever find yourself eating just because you’re bored? If so, try using smaller plates when snacking. You’ll be more conscious of what you’re consuming.

To stop nighttime snacking, brush your teeth right after dinner. You’ll be less likely to snack at bedtime.

Some others: eating too quickly, drinking wine every night, and not counting calories on the weekends.

To slow down your eating, try putting your fork down on your plate between bites. It’ll stop you from overdoing.

The wine fix is surprisingly simple: Buy smaller glasses! If you limit yourself to one glass, you’ll have the same satisfaction with less calories. Splurge on one meal on the weekend, but don’t throw your diet to the wind.

As you work on changing your eating habits, it’s a good idea to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet. Here are some of the benefits of adding fruit to your diet.
