How to Break an Unhealthy Eating HabitApril 22 2019
If you do want to break your habit, here’s a game-plan:
Make the connection: Do you eat chocolate chips out of the bag when you stay up late to do work or watch TV? Do you stop for donuts every Sunday on the way home from church? Are you prone to raid the cabinets when you haven’t had much sleep the night before? Figure out the WHY behind your habit.
Give yourself time: Habits aren’t easy to break once they’re ingrained—and it takes time to build new ones. Focus on slow, gradual progress instead of going cold turkey. And never label yourself as “weak” or as having “no willpower” if you fall back into old patterns. It’s not about strength–it’s about finding routines that are healthy and doable for you in the long term.
