How to Use Basic Principles to Achieve Better Lifelong Healthy Eating Habits
Want a healthier lifestyle? Unfortunately, this is a hard goal for many people to achieve. Diets not only bring up dread and visions of starving and suffering but they also just plain don’t work. They not only set you up for failure but create a recurring pattern of hope-try-and-fail patterns that can debilitate any future efforts to eat better and be healthy.
In the Beginner’s Guide to Healthy Eating, we go back to basics and follow 9 Simple Rules and the Habits you need to practice to help enforce them.
Why Habit Development is Better than Forced Willpower
If you’re like most people, you start each year with a laundry-list of ways to improve yourself. So what usually happens? By February, you’ve given up on these goals and you’re left with that same desire to live a healthier lifestyle.
Really, the only way to make a PERMANENT change is to slowly introduce certain habits into your life. Instead of following the “all-or-nothing, cold-turkey” mindset, you’ll slowly change your life for the better. When you do this for a few months, you’ll eat better, feel great and get more energy.
And it’s not what you think. There are no diet plans, no meal restrictions or calorie reductions and definitely no gimmicks. This is simply a set of principles to live by that will empower you to make better choices for yourself no matter what your eating style: paleo, vegan, omnivore, etc.
There are 9 Sections and each section is broken down into 4 parts:
1) The Rule – which describes what principles to live by
2) The Habit – suggestions on behavior modification or mindset shifts to help you adopt the new Rule
3) The Why – this is the explanation behind “because I told you so”
4) The Hard Facts – the actual studies and research that support this being beneficial to you and your health!
You can eat better and feel great. All you have to do is slowly introduce a few healthy habits into your life.
The Beginner’s Guide to At Home Exercises
Move More, Weigh Less
Bring the gym to you! No more trolling through crowded health club parking lots, finally finding a spot, only to discover that your beloved elliptical machines are all taken.
There is another way.
And it’s going to save you so much time and you’ll talk yourself out of it because of the weather or traffic.
Whether your work 12-hour grueling days at the office or are a stay-at-home mom with no time for yourself, this book is going to help give you more “me time”.
You are your own gym – many of the exercises in here are bodyweight based. There are 10+ equipment recommendations to fit every budget. But there are still some great ideas for working out without any of them.
Take it on the road.
Are you traveling? Stuck in a small hotel room? I lived in a tiny studio in NY for years with a roommate and a dog so I’m all about making it work with minimal space.
The Beginner’s Guide to Mindful Eating
Think More, Weigh Less
Mindful Eating will completely change your love/hate relationship with food, food related events, food-related thoughts, memories and in turn your actions. Instead of feeling shame, anxiety, hurt and worry, you’ll experience pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with the process of eating.
Drawing on many different sources, scientific research results and her own personal no-diet style, this book attempts to provide both clarity and peace around what mindfulness is and what it isn’t and how it can help with food issues.
Mindful eating is an approach that involves bringing one’s full attention to the process of eating—to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. Whether you are overweight, suffer from an eating disorder, or just want to get more out of life, this book offers a simple tool that can make a remarkable difference.
In this book, you’ll learn how to:
• Tune in to your true feelings of whether or not you’re hungry
