eating habits

 

How to Improve Your Eating Habits. When it comes to eating, we have strong habits. Some are good (“I always eat breakfast”), and some are not so good (“I always clean my plate”). Although many of our eating habits were established during childhood, it doesn’t mean it’s too late to change them.

Making sudden, radical changes to improve your eating habits such as eating nothing but cabbage soup, can lead to short-term weight loss. However, such radical changes are neither healthy nor a good idea, and won’t be successful in the long run. Permanently improving your eating habits requires a thoughtful approach in which you Reflect, Replace, and Reinforce.

What is the “Clean Eating” craze all about. Could the wellness trend be more damaging than healthy? As anyone who has read the Lifestyle section of any newspaper, ever used Instagram will know, there has been a revolution underway in the realm of healthy eating. Long gone are the days of buying microwaveable meals and ordering late night delivery without judgment or guilt. The advent of kale, quinoa, and chia seeds have conquered the world of cooking faster than you could say “Nutribullet.”

I feel like it’s time to clarify a few things. Namely: What does “clean eating” mean? First, allow me to explain that the phrase began with good intentions: It used to imply eating lots of wholes, real foods — veggies and fruit, whole-grains, animal and plant-based protein, nuts, seeds, and oils.

Cooking at home and finding right ingredients were encouraged.
