The first thing you have to realize here is this… small improvements can have HUGE results. So don’t think you have to change everything around so consider your eating habits a success. You’ll see what I mean in just a minute.
It’s no surprise that most people eat way way too much food everyday. I hear this from my clients when I have them count their calories just to see where they are. I always here the same things over and over again…
“Wow! I can’t believe how fast things added up. Just after lunch before I even realized it, I was just below 2,000 calories already.”
The foods you eat do add up quickly. What’s really evil about this is we’re mentally tricked to eat more and more. However, that is a topic for a different article.
What can you do to help your eating right now?
1. Have A Plan
This is the number one action you can take. It will change your diet faster and help you lose weight immediately as well. Plan what you’re going to eat and stick to that plan.
The vast majority of all nutrition blunders come from last second decisions. When you rush a decision, you always choose the fast option and the fast options when it comes to food are things like:
However, if you have a plan then you already have ready what you’ll need to eat. This will keep these foods from entering your body and causing cravings and more havoc.

2. Slowly Cut The Sugary, Salty, and High Processed Carbs From Your Body
These foods are trick foods. They make give you false satisfaction from chemicals in your brain. These chemicals seek more and more which means more and more eating.
It’s been scientifically proven through multiple studies that high sugary foods become addictive.
This being the case, it will be impossible to cut them from your diet all at once. That is why you must slowly begin a substitution plan. As you begin to substitute with healthier foods, you’ll soon loose your taste for the processed sugary and salty foods.
This process sounds slow, but it’s not. And when you add the third thing into the mix, you’ll find things change very rapidly.
3. Start To Exercise Regularly
Changing a diet is harder than consistent exercise. Exercise is actually very easy to fit into your schedule when you have a circuit training workout plan or something similar.
But it’s not the exercise itself that will help you eat less food. Exercise, done consistently, is a keystone habit. The simple fact of doing exercise repeatedly will make you want to change other things. This is because of how you feel when you’re done exercising.
You have more energy and life and that is a more addictive feeling. After a couple weeks of working out, you might eat some of the bad foods and you’ll see they make you feel slow, weak, and really nasty. That is the feeling that can help you change your eating habits.
Does This Work For Everybody?
No. It doesn’t but it can and does work for a lot of women. I know from experience there are other issues that affect women specifically. I use to struggle with mild anorexia because of body image issues. More and more women are dealing with these issues. I do thing our media while damning the body image advertising promotes, they themselves are promoting it as well.
It’s a vicious circle. But start with these three tactics to help you eat less. Do them with conviction and you’ll find they can work for you. If you just try it for a couple days, it’s not going to happen.
