It doesn’t matter whether your goal is to eat healthier or even lose weight. Being able to change and adapt to a new diet regimen is going to be difficult. This is tough since you are not only breaking one eating habit but also, you are trying to build a new one.
This is true most especially if the what you are trying to break is something that is triggering the reward center of your brain such as eating ice cream for every achievement or accomplishment made.
Breaking Poor Diet Habit
Binge eating on ice cream can be defined easily as a poor diet routine. Still, thousands upon thousands of people are doing this because it soothes or comfort them.
Basically, it is a form of self-care. As per experts, it is better to figure out the reason why you’re doing self-care habit by answering the following:
- Why you’re eating ice cream at certain time of the day?
- What are you trying to avoid?
- Why you have to comfort yourself in such a way?
The moment that you understood what your reasons are, then that will be the time when you can start addressing the root cause of your behavior and break your bad habits.
Adopting to New Habits
When trying to develop new good habits, expect to encounter mental setbacks. This is part of the process. So when doing so, have realistic expectations and know how to manage it.
