How To Avoid Junk Food
Everywhere we go there is junk food, it can be hard to avoid because food has become such a social part of our lives. Parties, work meetings, social events, and even home activities usually include food… and more often than not those foods are not healthy.
So, what can you do to avoid eating the junk food everywhere you go?
The first step to take is to make a conscious effort to always keep healthy food options on hand. If you are filling your stomach with healthy foods, you will be less likely to over eat the junk food that is available.
Next, make a commitment to not eat junk food for a certain amount of time. For example, some people like to make a promise to themselves that they will not eat junk food for 6 days, and then on the last day of the week they will allow themselves a treat if they want it.
Another good way to avoid eating junk food at social events is by bringing healthy options. Many times you can ask the host if they will let you bring a healthy treat, and you will always find that they will take you up on your offer. This will allow you to have something healthy to munch on while you are at the social event… and I’m sure there will be other people at the party that will appreciate the healthy option as well.
The last step to take is to begin telling your friends and family that you are eating healthy. This can help you in several ways: 1) they can give you the moral support that you need in order to say no to food items that you don’t want to be eating, and 2) they can help you to be sure that there are healthy options available when you get together.
