"How in the world am I going to CHANGE my eating habits? My life is chaotic!"

"Some see things as they are and say, 'Why?' I dream of things that never were and say, 'Why not."  - George Bernard Shaw Colonel Bob's Newsletter Photo

 

 

If you like this newsletter and think it could have a positive impact on others, please forward it to family and friends.

 
No, John F. Kennedy is not the originator of this quote! He is most remembered for it.
 
CHANGE
is in the air and in your hair! You can't turn on the TV right now without hearing the word CHANGE being used, especially during this election year.
 

In the last newsletter we talked about becoming a member of the 10-percent-club. The other 90 percent quit when the first obtacles are encountered. NOT YOU!

 

You are already feeling somewhat overwealmed by "more-of-the-same" daily routine and stress. You may be thinking,

 

"How in the world am I going to CHANGE my eating habits? My life is chaotic!"

 
I refer you to the quote by George Bernard Shaw above. I go through the same struggles when it comes to making CHANGES in my life that I have clearly recognized as beneficial to me and yet still lead a routine that does not quite bring about those CHANGES (yet!).
 
The five tips below on how to CHANGE your eating habits are designed to keep you in the game of REAL CHANGE (below).

TOP Five Tips to Change Your Way of Eating.

 
  1. Change your way of thinking.
  2. Change your grocery shopping habits.
  3. Change your eating out habits.
  4. Change the quality of foods you eat.
  5. Change the quantity of foods you eat.
1. Change your way of thinking.
Think about ways to accomplish what you want ALL THE TIME. You will then have "eyes" to see the opportunities. Discontinue all language that focuses on the obstacles. Never ever say about yourself or anyone else, "That's the way he or she is." Everyone is capable of personal, positive change. Do not rob your hope or the hope of others by making such a statement, ever again! Never ever be afraid of positive change. Face your fear and you will conquer it.
 
2. Change your grocery shopping habits.
Before you even step into the grocery store, plan in your mind to focus on healthy choices that you also enjoy. Be willing to try new things that are healthy.
 
3. Change your eating out habits.
Take charge of the menu and waiter and waitress before you ever enter the restaurant. Decide and plan in your mind before walking in just how you will construct your healthy meal. If the restaurant has no healthy meals, visit it no more than once a week or not at all.
 
4. Change the quality of foods you eat.
Quality food is food that has not been manipulated or refined by man. White bread and butter as well as paster are great once a week treats. Keep the sugar and fat intake to a minimum. Remember, you decide.
 
5. Change the quantity of foods you eat.
Plates, bowels, cups, glasses and restaurants are all designed to serve up too much food. We also perceive the portion size as being too big because we're seeing it all the time. Start your change by reducing the amount of food you are eating at every meal if you are in the need of weight loss or simply to manage your weight.
