There are several key reasons why people develop unhealthy eating habits, most of it can be attributed to lack of planning and awareness. But you don't have to be a victim of poor eating habits. Below are few unhealthy habits that people struggle with.
Too Few Meals During the Day
When most people go on a diet, they tend to skip meals and especially breakfast. Most meals are skipped early in the day only to fight overpowering temptation later in the day. This usually leads to poor eating habits and failure to maintain a sensible diet. So how do you break this cycle of unhealthy eating?
Include 3 low calorie meal plans in your diet each day. Total calories for each meal should range between 300 and 400 calories for women and 400 to 600 calories for men. A couple of low calories snack between meals such as a fruit or sugar free, low fat yogurt will help fight the temptation to eat unhealthy.
Unaware of Calories and Fat
Most people eat foods with no idea of the calorie or fat value. This leads to weight gain and unhealthy eating habits because you can easily consume twice the normal calories required to maintain your weight, let alone lose weight, if you don't know how many calories you are eating.
Buy a calorie counter book and learn the calorie and fat value of every food that you eat. This way you can plan to eat nutritious foods instead of unhealthy foods that will expand your waistline.
Junk Food Leads to More Junk Food
The problem with eating unhealthy foods is it makes you crave even more junk food. A handful of chips usually leaves you wanting more. Once you break the cycle of unhealthy eating, its easier to maintain good eating habits which leads to weight loss.
