How To Change Your Eating Habits For Life: The secrets

How To Change Your Eating Habits For Life: The secrets

I want to tell you that it’s not necessary to change everything about your life in order to be healthier. You don’t have to become a vegan or give up all your favorite foods, but there are some small changes you can make that will help put you on the path toward better health.

It really doesn’t matter what you eat when.

It really doesn’t matter what you eat when.

It is more important to eat when you are hungry than what you eat, more important to eat when you are hungry than how much you eat, and most importantly: it is more important to eat when your body tells YOU it wants food! If this sounds counterintuitive or even paradoxical (as it does), remember that our bodies are complex machines with many systems working together in harmony for the good of the whole. The human body has an acute sense of hunger; but sometimes we can’t tell ourselves why we feel hungry until later on in life or after a period of time passes by us completely unaware that something was wrong with our diets; until one day – BOOM! That moment comes along where suddenly everything becomes clear as crystal in front of us like some sort of revelation from God himself telling us “Hey guys listen up! Your body needs sustenance now so here’s some pointers on what works best for each type…”

Make sleep a priority.

Sleep is a vital part of health and wellbeing. Getting enough sleep can help you lose weight, feel more energetic and improve your mood. But if you’re not getting enough sleep, it can be difficult to stick with a healthy diet or exercise program.

How much sleep do I need?

The amount of quality shut-eye you need depends on age and activity level but generally speaking adults aged 18-64 years old need between 7-9 hours per night while those over 65 years old require 8 hours per night. If this sounds like too many or too few hours for your schedule then consider these tips:

  • Try cutting back on screen time (TV, laptop etc.) before bedtime;
  • Avoid caffeine after lunchtime as it stimulates the nervous system making it harder for us to fall asleep at night;
  • Don’t worry if getting into bed isn’t easy – try setting an alarm so that when it goes off in 30 minutes’ time – which should be around 11pm – then get yourself ready for bed!

Eat slowly.

Eating slowly is the most important thing you can do to change your eating habits for good. You’ll feel more full, reduce the amount of food you eat and help prevent overeating by making sure that every bite counts.

  • Eat with others. Eating out is one of the easiest ways to overeat because it’s so easy to pick up something without thinking about what’s in it or how much work it will take off before dinner—which means no one sees what they’re putting in their mouths! If eating at home isn’t an option for some reason, try taking friends out for brunch instead: The social aspect makes it easier for everyone involved (including yourself) not only because there are less distractions but also because sharing food together helps us appreciate its value more fully than when we’re alone

Start eating mindfully.

  • Focus on the food you’re eating.
  • Slow down and enjoy your food.
  • Eat with purpose, but not necessarily for weight loss or other health goals; just because you’re trying to change your habits doesn’t mean that all your meals need to be mindful or nutritious! You can still put together some delicious meals if you want them to taste good while still fitting into your new lifestyle of maintaining a healthy weight and fit body shape by eating less junk food and more whole foods (which will ultimately help keep hunger levels under wraps).

If possible, try focusing on how each bite feels in your mouth as well as how it looks when swallowed—you might find yourself enjoying these small pleasures much more than plain old “clean” eating habits would allow!

Meal-prep like you mean it.

This is a great way to ensure that you’re not eating out every night, and can plan ahead for the week, month or even year. You’ll also have more time in your day to enjoy other activities (like working out!).

Encourage healthy snacking.

If you’re serious about your weight loss, then snacking is important. When you snack on healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, they can help keep you full and prevent overeating later in the day.

Here are some tips for making good choices:

  • Look for snacks that are high in protein or fibre (not fat). This means low-fat options like nuts or whole grains—but not too many calories! You want to make sure that each snack has only 300-400 calories per serving so that it doesn’t add up over time.
  • Choose snacks with plenty of vitamins B12 and D for energy boosts; calcium for strong bones; iron for better blood circulation; magnesium which helps keep nerves calm during stress situations; potassium which helps regulate fluid balance throughout our bodies…and more!

Don’t forget to hydrate.

A good way to start your day is with a glass of water.

Drinking enough water throughout the day will help your body stay hydrated, which means that you’ll feel less hungry and more energized. You should aim for around eight glasses per day (that means two liters) if you are an average-size adult or woman. If you’re trying to lose weight, aim for ten glasses per day—or even more!

If you don’t drink enough water each day or if there’s something else going on in your life that makes it hard for you to keep up with this habit (like working outside all day), then try making sure there’s always plenty of fresh fruit available at work or at home so that the temptation isn’t too strong when hunger strikes later on in the evening hours after work has ended.”

You don’t have to be perfect or change everything overnight, but small changes can make a big difference over time.

Start with one change. Then add another. Don’t be discouraged if you slip up; keep trying and you will succeed!


I know this list is pretty long, but I hope it gives you some ideas on how to change your eating habits for the better. Remember that changes in diet don’t happen overnight and they aren’t always easy! Keep at it though because the more you practice them, the easier it will get.
