Changing the Way I Eat is Hard

"I just start eating and don't stop. What I'd like to know is how I CHANGE that behavior."

 For some people this is an easier process of undoing than others. While some people have one or two poor habits to change you might have several- no worries.

Think of it as a scan of yarn that is all tangled up. Its going to take some time undoing and pulling on strands only to find that it tightened the knot.  Often experimenting with certain types of eating patterns will show us ways we can either loosen or tightened your knot. For example eating in a window of time is one pattern of nutrition that you might explore. It can solve some of your poor eating habits. Using a 8 hour window where you eat all your meals during that time, could be just what you need in order to stop night time snacking. Other options include only having a piece of fruit after having 3 servings of veggies first. This often gives you just what you need to help you achieve all the servings of vegetables you've been missing from your eating plan.

Other things will keep loosening the knot, but it will take time to untangle it all. Pull on one string each day. (pulling is the action item that you can do today) See what happens and if that string gives a bit- pull on it more tomorrow.

You're doing great showing up. Don't stop doing something each day to make yourself better.

To your best health,

Coach Nancy
