Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
We all know we should be eating healthy but too many things in life get in the way. We give in to cravings which pack on the pounds, we give excuses why we can’t eat healthy and then we moan and groan about it because we’ve gotten fat and lazy.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Just changing a few of your bad habits and you can start eating healthy and feeling great! Healthy eating is not hard. Repeat! Healthy eating is not hard. It does take some discipline and some good ole’ fashioned hard work but it’s all worth it when you come from the doctors with a clean bill of health.
Let’s examine the top 10 reasons why you’re not eating healthy and how to change your bad habits into healthy eating habits.
#1 Reason Why Your Not Eating Healthy
Too Busy – This is a reason that everyone seems to give but it has no merit whatsoever. Look, everyone is busy. We all lead fast-paced lives which include our work, dragging kids to all their activities, going to church, going to school, etc., but that doesn’t mean we can’t start eating healthy. Set priorities and then follow a plan. When you plan out your activities be aware of opportunities to eat healthy and then go for it. You’ll find you will have better and healthier eating habits the more you practice them.
#2 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
It’s Too Hard! – It seems everyone wants things handed to them for free on a platter without having to do the work. Remember, it’s your body and your health. Take care of your body and you take care of your health. It’s as simple as that! Like I said in #1, design your own eating healthy plan and you will see a major difference in your health.
#3 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
Don’t Know How– If you don’t know how to eat healthy then learn! There are so many ways to find out information. You have the Internet, books, magazines, radio talk shows and television shows where the experts give you all the information you need to succeed. Eating healthy is a major subject and there is enough information to make good decisions about your health.
#4 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
I’m A Picky Eater –There are foods that everyone doesn’t like but that doesn’t mean you should let that affect how healthy you eat. Focus on the healthy foods you do eat and you will reap the benefits. Eating healthy is just what it means. Make it an important part of your life and don’t worry about being a picky eater.
#5 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
I Don’t Know How To Shop For Healthy Food – Shopping for healthy food is an art in itself but one that can be mastered with practice. If you know what food is healthy and what it can do for you, it shouldn’t be hard to find it in the store. The healthiest part of the supermarket is the perimeter. This is where the fresh foods are such as fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, and poultry as well as the dairy section. Learn this and you will be eating healthy in no time.
#6 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
You Eat Too Much Junk Food – This is true of almost everyone who eats food but it doesn’t have to be that way. What most people don’t understand is that many of the so-called healthy food we eat are indeed, very unhealthy. Take for instance, granola bars. They mean well but it really is masquerading as a candy bar in disguise. The same can be said for margarine. What was once touted as a healthy alternative to butter is just flat out damaging to your body. Did you know that the real color of margarine is grey? They add colored die to make it look attractive. Finally, oils such as corn, sunflower, and canola oil are very unhealthy. In fact, many are rancid before they even reach the store. They are mixed with a “perfume” that covers up the smell. Stick with coconut oil (the pure virgin type) and Olive Oil (extra virgin is the least processed and healthiest of all the oils). Remember, what you put in your body will show on your body. So start eating healthy now.
#7 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
Can’t Afford Healthy Food – Look, I know food can be expensive but it is far more expensive and life threatening if you continue to eat the way you do. For many people, stroke, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, diabetes and heart attack are right around the corner. Obesity has become an epidemic of a problem and there’s no way we, as a nation, can continue on the path we’re on. It will cost you more in doctor bills if you don’t start eating healthy so look at it this way. You may spend a little more now but you may save your life later on.
#8 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
I’m Not A Good Cook – Not everyone is a chef but everyone can learn to eat healthy. It’s not rocket science. You don’t have to make incredible restaurant-style food to eat healthy. In fact, most restaurant food is unhealthy as it contains too much salt, fat and calories. Being a great cook does not make a healthy eater.
#9 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
Bad Habits – Each one of us was taught a different way to eat. Yhis means we developed our way how and what to eat. As we got older , we got ourselves into bad habits and now it shows in our appearance. This can be changed if you are willing to change. Bad habits can be hard to break but if you’re eating healthy meals you can build newer and healthier habits. It may seem like it’s impossible but you need to focus on what’s healthy not on the negative. Build a foundation and then you have the formula for eating healthy.
#10 Reason Why You’re Not Eating Healthy
Your Attitude – Most people want to eat healthy but have the wrong attitude. They believe they can’t do it or they don’t know enough to make the right decision. Excuses are for those people who don’t want to make an honest effort. Wanting and doing are two different things. Choose what you are going to do and do it! Make asn honest effort. Look for help if you need it. Ask friends family, or your doctor for suggestions you can use to start and continue eating healthy. A good attitude is the start of a healthy body. Start now with a good attitude and you will see a big change in your health.
Now that you know why you’re not eating healthy, it’s time to kick-start your healthy diet into gear. Go for it! You only have two choices, which one do you want?.. eating healthy or dying?
