Switching for a short time is a very simple and easy task, but changing unhealthy habits to healthy eating habits completely is very hard for a person to do, and then maintaining it is even harder. But, surely it’s not impossible. Many people try and give up. Don’t let it affect you. Keep trying and you’ll surely achieve it.
The question arises, why changing harmful eating is so hard? It’s very hard and complicated and it is linked with a human’s brain trying to get through and if you change your habitual eating to a healthy diet it can surely make a person healthier. Changing habits because you’re gaining weight, is not the point.
It’s not only for obese people it’s also for people who are fit. Don’t forget an obese worse was once a fit person too. You don’t know when and how and where you change your mind and start eating unhealthy food. Developing taste for new food is surely difficult there is no doubt about that. But, once you develop it you can easily go with the flow, and being healthy also leads to a long life.
A long search for getting through
Our brain deep down has a long search for getting through. Eating is the source of our continuity and it means survival. A person should know that what kind of food he can eat, what is suitable and what is not suitable for him. It means if you don’t manage your eating habits unlimitedly your security is at great risk and danger arises.
Some people stop eating when they are on a diet, diet does not mean to starve yourself and stop eating. It means to manage your diet, stop eating unhealthy food, start exercising and walk. Some people starve themselves and stop eating at all. And, because they starve they eat more in one time and it greatly affects your health, and gaining weight is more likely to happen.
Lifetime dieting can be a source of food uncertainty. If you are raised with a parent or a guardian who tried to manage your eating or if you were responsible for your regular dieting habits, you will automatically feel at risk when you try to switch from your eating behavior. If a person is facing problems in changing their food habits, they can take time. They can slowly switch it by changing one meal at a time. After he develops taste for healthy food, he can switch it later.
Food is also associated with your emotions. Some people, get cranky, aggressive, and even start getting irritated when they are hungry. Our behaviors of eating are also linked with the reward passage in our brain. When a person eats the kind of food he likes, he gets pleasure from it. This pleasure is the main reason a person doesn’t want to change his food habits. Not only the reward of satisfaction and comfort but it also has a relation, affection, and love for food. Eating is not only eating to some people it has a great association with some people. If a person really likes to eat a lot and doesn’t want to gain weight he should manage his lifestyle by exercising, walking and eating less fattening things. If he eats more calories he should burn more calories than he ate.
A theory tells that a habitual explanation that is helping awareness, bonding, communication, and relations is a small way that keeps people relaxed and calms down. When relations are affected, people substitute for food.
Through the relation of physical senses and controlling the changing of facial expressions, sensible eating, and social communication gives you a calm, relaxing, and secure feeling. So, if anyone considers food as their friend or lover they are trying to improve their nervous system.
Use reasonable part of brain
As humans, we have a superior brain with the strength to organize, arrange, strategize and judge and witness all benefits and results. Most of our diet arrangements and ambitions for switching harmful eating behaviors is when you are feeling relaxed and without any burden or when you have any junk food in your hand. When you are distressed and are irritated we surrender to our normal brain and the long search for safety is neglected by our brain.
A person shouldn’t give up. There are useful methods to help with food uncertainty, giving up bad eating habits, and change the rewards gained by pleasure.
