At times, it is very difficult to kill a bad habit.
A good way out here is to replace bad habits with the good ones. Indulging in hot chocolate fudge once in a while or gorging on jalebis swimming in syrup once in a month will not make you unfit. However, if you make this a habit, then your healthy is bound to suffer.
We can fast-track our weight loss process if we get rid of unhealthy food habits. Let's see some of such habits:
According to studies, partial sleep deprivation slows down your metabolism by 5-20% and alters your level of hunger hormones, making you hungrier all day. This may become a vicious cycle if you suffer from insomnia.
Eating in the Car
People travelling long distances often end up buying “ready to eat” foods like burgers, sandwiches, samosas etc. This way they end up getting their daily calorie quota in one go. If you do travel long distances, plan ahead and carry a healthy meal and a bottle of water with you.
Eating in Front of the TV
Food should be eaten patiently. One should chew properly, enjoy the flavours, textures and not just swallow it in one go. Eating in front of the TV makes you eat fast and you may not feel satisfied and might end up indulging in overeating. Same goes for eating while using a computer/laptop.
Even if you think that you are eating healthy, you could be stuffing yourself with too much of the same thing on a daily basis. This can again lead to gluttony which is indeed a very unhealthy habit. Try and explore different kinds of foods. Good for your taste buds and good for your health as well!
