Learning Better Eating Habits

Look at your patterns of eating diary. Are you eating all over your home or at work? Do you sometimes eat standing up? Or whilst doing other things? All of these situations may trigger of eating. Try to eat in just one place at home – and one at work. Sit down at a table and don’t read or watch TV. You will gradually weaken your wide range of eating triggers and only want to eat in the ‘proper place’.

Learning Better Eating Habits

Knowing where and when you are eating – as well as what – will also help you work out why you’re eating. Once you know why you’re eating you can begin to choose. “Do I need to eat or could I do something else instead?”

You need to keep a diary of your pattern of eating, and then concentrate on when and how and why you eat. You may need to plan to eat at certain times and paces. Look back at your patterns of eating diary and tick any of these statements that are true for you.

1.     Can’t Resist Temptation

□ At home, do you eat your favorite foods if they are in the house?

□ At friends’ houses, are you unable to refuse the food they offer?

□ In restaurants, do you give in when it’s all there to choose from?

2.     Eating Twice Over

□ Do you eat a tea with the children and then have a big supper with your    partner later on at night?

□ Do you eat a large meal with your workmates at midday and then another when you get home at night?

□ Do you have a bedtime snack even though you had a good supper earlier?

I eat a lot throughout the day since I am always hungry for some reason. I love bed time snacks. sometimes I eat standing up when I am in a hurry and also I tend to eat out a lot especially on the weekends and late too. But I do workout three to four times a week so I am not that bad. lol
