I was reading somewhere it takes between 30 - 60 days for a new habit to become a new normal. To create new neurons or diminish old ones. My eating habits are not good, I find it very hard to stop at one of anything and I binge too. So I figure if I can reprogramme my brain to only crave food at meal times this will be a really good start toward a healthy relationship with food for life.
So the idea is you decide what your new habit will be eg. not eating sweets or drinking more water
You have to write it down and comit to doing it for 30 days, and you can only add one habit at a time.
I will eat 3 x one plate meals every day and one small treat right after dinner (eg 2 squares of dark chocolate)
personally for me if I cut out snacking ill be eating a lot less calories and ill have a lot less binge triggers.
I have some ideas for when I get an urge to eat in between meals
1. Declutter something (my new hobby)
2. Deep breathing
3. 2 mins of exercise
4. cup of green tea
Anyone fancy developing a new habit with me?
