Change Your Style
Using food as an emotional reward, eating in a stressful environment, and multitasking through meals are just some of the eating styles that help pack on the pounds. Here are some tips for changing your current eating style for new and improved healthy habits.
Choose fresh food over fast food.
If stopping at Burger Joint or Chicken Heaven has become a pattern, it's time for a change. You know the drill: Opt instead for fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, and lean meats and dairy. For healthier recipe options, check out Restaurant Favorites made Healthy and Pack a Lunch with a Healthy Punch.
Using food as a way to celebrate joyful moments or cheer yourself up after sad ones is natural. Just be aware of how often you do it, and look for other ways to handle those highs and lows. Instead of rewarding yourself with food, consider other options such as a pedicure, massage, the latest best-selling book, new lipstick, flowers, or a walk in the park with friends.
