In the age of drive-throughs, constant bombardment by advertising and low attention spans it is more difficult than ever to resist that extra treat. Overhauling your diet entirely can feel akin to preparing to climb Mount Everest; purchasing all the required equipment before deciding that the lodge with the fireplace and comfortable lounge is a better choice. We’ve all been guilty of breaking new rules and habits, however whilst difficult, changing your eating habits is not impossible.
When attempting to start any large overarching goal it is imperative to set yourself small achievable goals that are recognisable and provide satisfaction. A person training to be a weightlifter for the first time would not immediately place 100 kilograms on the bar and attempt a rep. Instead, try gradual changes that are achievable in the long term.
Another technique for developing nutritious eating habits is to substitute your current snacking habits with healthier “treats.” Instead of that chocolate bar you usually consume, try switching to products such as Kuranda’s own Cacao Coconut Bites. By changing your habits gradually with smaller goals and enjoying snacks that still taste great whilst being healthier, the transition will be much smoother!
When attempting to create a more nutritious diet with healthier eating habits it is crucial to never skip meals such as breakfast! Having a nutritious meal for breakfast kick-starts your metabolism for the day and deters you from snacking on unhealthy products throughout the day. Studies have found people who eat breakfast daily are far less likely to be obese.
Finally, surround yourself with healthy foods! Plan and prepare your pantry, fridge fruit bowls with healthy options. Bring lists with you to the supermarket and stick to choices that will improve your health and wellbeing! If you are surrounded by unhealthy options it will be much more difficult to stay strong.
There are many ways to develop nutritious eating habits and listed above are just some of the options. Kuranda Wholefoods are proud to assist in the process with many great options that whilst healthy still taste great. Follow these steps above, do some more research and enable yourself with the knowledge to take those next steps!
