Here are 5 Eating habits you should avoid
- Neglecting breakfast
Skipping breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day, drains you of energy and makes you want to snack throughout the day. It’s easy to neglect breakfast when you have a heavy daily program, but doing so your metabolism is disrupted, causing you to burn fewer calories. Try not to neglect breakfast especially if you are trying to lose weight.
Try this: A bowl of oatmeal with almond milk and a handful of dark raisins is a combination that can get your day off to a good start.
- Eating junk food at work
This is another problem that mostly singles and people with busy schedule have. You are not alone. Planning your week’s lunches will not only help you stick with healthy options but also save you money.
Try this: Plan a week’s worth of quick, travel-friendly lunches. Self-prepared meals are almost always far less expensive and can help you stick with healthy options.
- In the middle of the day you need energy
Are you thinking about hitting up the vending machine for a soda or some chips? Think twice! Junk food not only contain ingredients that are not good for you but can also increase your fatigue.
Try this: Keep various ingredients to mix in like dried fruit, sunflower seeds, nuts or a jar of peanut butter in your desk, for an instant energy boost. Whenever you feel hungry eat a handful.
- Emotional eating
Emotional eating is another unhealthy habit that you should avoid. Most of the times whenever you are driven by certain emotions to eat, you are not even hungry.
Try this: Find another channel for your stress and negative emotions. Take up a hobby, spend quality time with a friend or have a fitness buddy to keep you motivated with workouts.
- Late night cravings
Having a late night snack once in a while is fine, but if you cannot go to bed without having a plate of cookies or a slice of pie first, then you could be setting yourself up forweight gain. Eating too close to bedtime will also give you sleeping difficulty since your body will be busy digesting food.
Try this: Go to bed at a reasonable hour and drink water whenever you feel the urge to get a snack at night.
