Living a fast paced lifestyle makes it difficult to eat healthy all of the time. Whether you’re an executive or a stay at home Mom, life can get in the way of a plan to makeover your unhealthy eating habits.
Stick to These Three Rules to Eating Healthy, to Keep your Diet on Track
1. Don’t eat junk food during the work week.
I’ve stuck to this rule for about five years now and it’s amazing. It’s simple and easy to stick with. If you’re not eating junk food from Monday to Friday not only will you be eating healthy 5 days out of the week, you may be more likely to control cravings on the weekends. Even if you don’t, two days of unhealthy eating is easy to counter during the week than months on end of snacking on fatty and fried foods!
2. Don’t keep unhealthy food in the house.
Another golden rule that has helped me personally, to keep the weight off. The act of having to go out and buy junk food when a craving strikes, gives you more time to think if you really want and/or need it. Where as having in the cupboard, makes ruining your calorie intake for the day, only a couple of steps away. This is an especially important rule if you have trouble with diet willpower or can easily justify eating unhealthy to yourself.
3. Avoid Fried, Fatty, Processed and Creamy
There is plenty of delicious food that isn’t filled with trans fats, fried in oil or made with butter. If you can avoid rich and greasy food you have a lot more room to make mistakes. It’s amazing how bad Alfredo sauce is, or a fried spring roll at a Thai restaurant. Processed and frozen foods contain high levels of sodium and preservatives. Even if you end up eating more than you should, avoiding these foods will keep your diet program on track.
