What if you ate better for the next 30 days? How much would your weight decrease? How would you feel? Seem overwhelming to even start?
Let’s make it simple... here's how:
✅ Step #1: Clean the junk out.
Step one is simple: get rid of all the junk food that currently resides in your home, office and car. Go through with a big garbage bag and toss anything that remotely resembles junk food. Junk food is stuff that is high in empty calories and low in nutritional value.
✅ Step #2: Stock Up on healthy food.
Go to the store and stock up on delicious, nutritious foods that will take the place of the junk food. Nuts, seeds, fresh organic fruit and veggies, hard boiled eggs, lean proteins, and hearty salad fixings beans for healthy burrito bowls (like the recipe below) are great items to have on hand. You’ll eat less of these healthy snacks, since these aren’t empty calories, but rather nutrient-filled calories that fill and satisfy.
✅ Step #3: HALT!
When the next craving strikes you, tell yourself to HALT! This word is actually a handy acronym.
Ask yourself, “Am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired?”
If you’re hungry, then reach for one of the healthy snacks from step two. If you’re angry, then explore the issue and seek resolution. If you are lonely, then reach out to a friend, instead of reaching for junk food. And if you are tired, then make the time to grab a nap or get to bed early to catch up on sleep.
✅ Step #4: Stick With It
The first day that you go without junk food will be the hardest day. The second day will be a bit easier. The third day will be even easier than the second…and so on.
The fact is that your taste buds adjust to the foods that you exist on. When your diet is filled with junk foods, then that is what your taste buds will crave, but as you shift to a diet that is filled with fresh, nutritious foods then your taste buds will forget all about that old junk food. Stick with it, one day at a time, and you will break free from the grip of junk food addiction.
✅ TIPS AND TRICKS:
Drink 3-4 quarts of water per day, and stay active so that you're not eating out of boredom. Use "positive self-talk" to keep your mindset on track for success. And reach out for support and help when you need it.
