We humans are creatures of habits and if we have bad eating habits we might struggles getting the new healthy ones in our lifestyle. They say, if you change your eating, you change your life. Why? because we create our life.
Every day we reinforce our eating habits, healthy or unhealthy. Tell me if you agree or not? We most of the time buy the same food at the same store and prepare same recipes over and over. We are good at that; we know already the taste, we know how we feel when we eat them. In the other hand, when we are making a change; we do not know at first if we will feel good with the new food. We have a preconception of it. We might think “ok, what would I eat if I need to keep calm and in peace?” Well, this is what I actually think when I am in the process of replacing foods. Actually there are simple routines that could be easily incorporated to support the process. If you have changed your eating; you will agree with me that you life have changed. You might also have changed some friends haha but that is ok. This week we will approach eating habits and with it we will be making a check in how close or away to our fitness goal.

Ditch guilt.- Eat mindfully and enjoy your food. You have chosen it, so it then sacred. Pay attention how many time you have been gone with the guilt trip when choosing your meals?
80/20?.- 80/20 rule is a way to do it. If you are one of this persons go for it but do not deprive yourself or go nuts on your 20.
