Your body doesn’t function well with a full gut! There is a happy medium that must be attained if you want to take off what you've packed on! However, if you're willing to make some changes, realize that some refinements will be easier than others. Those die-hard habits will try and stick to you like glue.

The good news is that once you break the cycle, new patterns will become automatic! Poor eating habits are easier to break if you can remember that you should:

Eat to live, not live to eat!

Here’s a list of questionable practices you may have and a few suggestions on how to update them!

How to Break Bad Eating Habits

  • If meal times become hurried, please don't do this!

    Instead, try grabbing a pack of nabs until later when you can sit down and relax while enjoying a wholesome meal!

  • If snacking is your thing, replace empty calories with something different, like this:

    Saving half for later will help you slim down.

    Bad Shopping Habits that Trigger Bad Eating Habits

    You can’t change bad eating habits without changing your shopping habits. Here are a few things you should avoid to help you lose weight.

  • Shopping when you’re hurried.
  • Not sticking to a list.
  • Giving into last minute purchases.
  • Not understanding what you're buying.
  • Not writing down what your meals will be.
  • Not buying foods with live enzymes.

    Many bad habits are learned from family members and can be passed down from generation to generation. The only way the cycle will ever break is for something to disrupt/interrupt the pattern. Be THAT generation that forms good eating habits and pass them along to your children. Its a good way to end those bad eating habits forever!
