Changing your lifestyle can be difficult, but you can do it. Starting to make changes slowly will allow you to create healthy habits. So here are five small changes you can make that will change your eating habits for the better.
1) Buy some sandwich thins
Sandwiches can be healthy, but what can make them less caloric is if you cut back on the carbs. Sandwich thins are available in every grocery store. They allow you to enjoy a nice hearty sandwich without all that unhealthy bread. Wraps are another option that can help you cut down on carbs.
2) Drink water
Empty calories come in the form of juices and soda. If you get into the habit of skipping out on those sugary, unhealthy drinks and replacing them with water, your unhealthy beverage cravings will stop.
3) Eat more protein
The worst thing you can do is skimp on protein. Meat is what makes you full, so if you allow yourself a serving of meat at every meal you won’t be as hungry for unhealthy snacks.
4) Don’t eat at night
Eating after dinner can pack on the pounds. So cutting down on after dinner snacks can really help you to lose a few. Make sure you eat enough at dinner so that you won’t be tempted to indulge in a midnight snack.
5) Eat vegetables as a snack
The one thing that can really kill your daily calorie intake is mindless eating. Snuggling up in bed with a bag of pita chips watching How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days can be dangerous. Instead of grabbing a bag of chips, grab a bag of carrots and a bottle of ranch. Ration out your snacks so your not just mindlessly munching on whatever’s in front of you. Your body deserves respect, and obtaining healthier habits will make you happier than that time you found a Free People sweater half off (and that’s a hard happiness to beat).
