Self control can be a tremendous challenge but it’s like a muscle that responds to how often we use it. The more you use it the stronger it gets. Learn to pause and think about your food choices. It’s more important than you might think.
How are you going to feel 5 minutes after gobbling down a burger and fries? Poor food choices affect you physically by making you feel sluggish and in the long run can lead to disease. Mentally it often makes you feel bad about yourself and your inability to stick to your goals.
Think about it; is your health and well being worth that few minutes it takes to scarf down that greasy pizza or sugar laden doughnut? You can learn to make better choices by exercising self control.
Learn to visualize success and imagine how you are going to feel after making a healthy food selection. Every time you make a better food choice, you increase your will power and self control.
You can learn to enjoy healthy food. It simply requires discipline. Try experimenting with new recipes and really get involved in your food preparation. Your body will respond with more sustained energy and you will build discipline and self control.
Remember pause and reflect- food can either improve your health or cause disease. It’s your choice. 😊
