Step 1: Put a reset on your mind
Having good or bad eating habits start with your mind. It means taking steps everyday to change your eating pattern. Start by replacing unhealthy food options with healthier substitutes. It’s simple, but has long term sustainability. Your mind may crave sweets like chocolate cake, but you can choose to eat a piece of fruit in its place.
Step 2: Increase fiber intake
Fiber is important to your body because it works as a sugar stabilizer. It also keeps you fuller longer, just like protein rich foods. Increasing fiber either by supplementing or eating veggies can curve cravings that have you eating more then you should.
Step 3: Plan Meals
Meal planning does a few things that are beneficial. In addition to taking the guesswork out of meals, it saves you time, and can save you money. By taking your personal profile as a guideline, you can meal prep breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. This will structure you to stick to your profile and know what you are eating.
